Did Nicki Minaj Throw Shade At J-Lo’s Anaconda Moves?

Nicki Minaj is not afraid of letting her true feelings be known, particularly when it comes to awards shows and fellow celebrities. 


Miley Cyrus knows. 

But it seems that social media users believe that Jennifer Lopez could be the latest subject of Nicki’s shade-throwing, as she took to the stage for the show-stopping opening medley at the American Music Awards, which included a sound bite of Minaj’s Anaconda.


It all got a little awkward, with viewers taking to social media to comment on Nicki’s expression (which the cameras just so happened to zoom right in on). 

Jennifer Lopez was rocking a skintight body suit for the twerking-based tune, but many pointed out that Nicki looked less than impressed by Jen’s moves.



One user took to Twitter to point out: ‘Wow, that was some serious shade @Nickiminaj just threw at Jennifer Lopez’.

Another wrote: ‘Nicki Minaj is throwing the ULTIMATE shade at Jennifer Lopez’.

Whilst another commentator tweeted: ‘Damn J Lo……. Nicki Minaj facial expression says it all… We still love u’.

Nicki herself saw the drama unfolding on social media, and simply said: ‘lol says what all? I’m looking at my own face on the screen when I’m looking to the right. I turn Bak & look @ her’.



Nicki sizzled in a plunging white gown by Michael Costello, complete with gold embellishments, as she took centre stage to collect her award.



She was presented with best rap/hip-hop album by Gigi Hadid and Kylie Jenner, and the glamorous threesome hugged it out in front of the live audience. 

Well deserved, Nick. 

What’s a red carpet event without a little drama, eh?
