Nicki Versus Farrah Is 2016's First Twitter Feud

1/11/2016 10:13pm EST
Nicki Minaj Gets Into Twitter Fight With 'Teen Mom'/Porn Star Fa
Nicki Minaj isn't exactly known for showing restraint on Twitter, with the rapper getting into it with everyone from Taylor Swift to Miley Cyrus last year. Now, Nicki has kicked off 2016 by calling out another woman: 'Teen Mom' (and porn) star Farrah Abraham. And while Farrah wasn't shy about hitting back, we suspect she's enjoying the free publicity.

Nicki was apparently watching an episode of Teen Mom OG on Sunday when she tweeted her opinion of the way Abraham was acting on the show.

"Farrah is a c**t to her mother," Nicki tweeted.

Wow. She went right for the C-word. Quite the openin...

When The Shade Hits The Fan: 9 Shady Music Moments From 2015
Musicians have been “throwing shade” at each other for years – understatement. In fact, before it was known colloquially as throwing shade, the esteemed classical composers were literally ripping each other apart with their harsh critiques of one another. Each and every year, new shade is thrown into the hands of the media, which in turn is presented to the people for their entertainment pleasure.

Nicki Minaj landed the trophy for Best Hip-Hop Video for her single "Anaconda" at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, and after joking around with the crowd and then telling her fans to follow their dreams she thanked her pastor, and everything seemed nice.

2015 VMAs Fashion: Stars Bare Lots Of Skin, Flaunt Their Curves
The MTV Video Music Awards are one of the most anticipated fashion events of the year. The show allows singers to let loose when it comes to what they wear -- and they often wear very little.

Taylor Swift was actually one of the more conservative stars from the 2015 event, donning colorful sequined, hounds tooth pants and a matching crop top. Some have likened her look to pajama pants, but we think it's sharp!

She took home awards for Video Of The Year, Best Female Video and Best Pop Video. She and Nicki Minaj showed there was no bad blood between them after singing together on stage.

Swift was unopposed at the top spot, with the next closest album in sales (Guardians of the Galaxy Soundtrack) and impact (Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint) not coming anywhere close. 172,000 versus 70,000 copies ...
