Drake has joined “team Miley Cyrus” after the “Wrecking Ball” singer’s public feud with Nicki Minaj at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. The Canadian singer reportedly wants to record a duet diss track against Meek Mill and his rapper girlfriend.
“No shade to Nicki, he still rides hard for her, but he’s team Miley in this feud! Drake can relate to Miley -- he’s been the underdog his entire life, just like Miley is in this feud,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Other women would have fallen back when Nicki tried to chin check Miley at the show, but what did Miley do? She took two steps forward and was like ‘what b----?'. Drake loves that kind of spirit. That no fear type of woman.”
Cyrus and Minaj’s feud began after the former slammed the “Anaconda” singer over a feud with Taylor Swift. Minaj got into a tiff with the “Bad Blood” singer on Twitter about the VMA nominations for Video of the Year last month.
On Sunday night, while thanking her fans in her speech for Best Hip Hop Video for “Anaconda,” Minaj called out Cyrus, saying, "Now back to this b---- that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press. Miley, what's good?”
Cyrus, who was hosting the show, responded by saying that her comments in the New York Times interview were taken out of context. “Hey we're all in this industry. We all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s---. Nicki, congratu-f-------lations.”
Meanwhile, Drake, who has been in an ongoing public feud with Minaj’s boyfriend took Cyrus' side after the VMAs and also expressed his wish to record a duet diss track.
“He’s thinking about getting in the studio with Miley and straight up obliterating Nicki and Meek on a dope track,” another source told Hollywood Life.
Drake and Mill sparked a war on July 21 after the "All Eyes on You" rapper took to Twitter and told people not to compare him to Drake because he doesn't write his own rap songs. Drake responded by releasing two diss songs, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” while Mill fired back with “Wanna Know.”
In a skit during the VMAs, Cyrus had mocked Mill for his embarrassing loss to Drake over the diss tracks.
