In the cover story, New York Times Magazine writer Vanessa Grigoriadis spends time with Nicki during the always hectic NY Fashion Week. The story touches on recent pop culture happenings, including the Nicki Minaj/Miley Cyrus tiff on-stage at the VMAs as well as the Drake and Meek Mill beef. However the interview ended up being cut short when Nicki found a question to be disrespectful. Check out a few Q&A highlights below.

On Miley Cyrus:

“The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, but you don’t want to know how black women feel about something that’s so important? Come on, you can’t want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.”

On Drake/Meek:

“They’re men, grown-ass men. It’s between them.” How does it make you feel, I ask? “I hate it. It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over.”

This leads into the interview’s termination, with Grigoriadis asking, “Is there a part of you that thrives on drama, or is it no, just pain and unpleasantness—” and Nicki replying, “That’s disrespectful. Why would a grown-ass woman thrive off drama.” She continued, “What do the four men you just named have to do with me thriving off drama? Why would you even say that? That’s so peculiar. Four grown-ass men are having issues between themselves, and you’re asking me do I thrive off drama.” It didn’t stop there, “Women blame women for things that have nothing to do with them. I really want to know why — as a matter of fact, I don’t. Can we move on, do you have anything else to ask? To put down a woman for something that men do, as if they’re children and I’m responsible, has nothing to do with you asking stupid questions, because you know that’s not just a stupid question.”
