Absolutely Zero Shade
- The Situation: Nicki Minaj took to the stage to accept the award for best hip-hop video. Then she called out Miley Cyrus for saying she's "not too kind."
- The Verdict: This is not shade. It's not shade because Nicki wanted Miley to know she was coming for her, so much so that she directly addressed her. Shade is subtle. This is practically a low-key bloodbath.
