Nicki Minaj Backtracks On Iggy Azalea Insult

Posted Thursday July 3, 2014 9:55 AM GMT

As she accepted her fifth Best Female Hip Hop Artist trophy at the BET Awards last weekend, Nicki Minaj took the opportunity to slam fellow nominee Iggy Azalea.

The “Super Bass” babe declared, "What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”

But yesterday (July 2) Nicki seemed a little less inflammatory as she took to Twitter to clarify her comments.

Minaj wrote, "I've congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud. The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us. I believe we're smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I've been saying this for 5 years."
