Nicki Minaj Let Us Know ‘Normani Is That Bitch’ During VMA Speech

Nicki Minaj’s acceptance speech for the Best Hip Hop Moon Person at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards was full of fiery, iconic, and spicy moments — but before the first televised win of the night was announced, Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart let their unique brand of comedy fly at the expense of Fifth Harmony.

“She’s nominated for five VMAs tonight, five of them,” Haddish said of Camila Cabello. “I’m super proud of her. So those of you watching at home, hi, Fifth Harmony.”

After Ariana Grande helped her bestie up to the stage, the Queen rapper decided to set the record straight and come to Normani’s defense. ”Tiff, don’t be coming for Fifth Harmony, because Normani is that bitch,” Nicki warned the Night School lead.

The competition for Best Hip Hop at the VMAs was fierce — Nicki beat out Cardi B’s “Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage, The Carters’ “APES**T,” Drake’s “God’s Plan,” J. Cole’s “ATM,” and Migos’s “Walk It Talk It” featuring Drake — but that didn’t seem to phase the queen. She also made sure to let the audience know that they should “tune in for Queen radio so you can know who the Cocksucker of the Day award is going to.”

It’s safe to say that Nicki had a lot of confidence to spare at this year’s show.

Manu Ginobili Blows Out Shoe During Game

Is this just a San Antonio Spurs thing?

In last night’s game between the Detroit Pistons and the San Antonio Spurs, guard Manu Ginobili flat out ripped through his shoe during a defensive play in the first half of the game. While guarding Rodney Stuckey at the top of the key, Ginobili planted before his foot instantly burst out of the shoe.

According to San Antonio Spurs Equipment Manager Travis Wade, Ginobili has been wearing this shoe – the Nike Air Max Closer IV - since 2009. Now, Ginobili, a player who is most comfortable wearing the exact same pair of shoes night in and night out, will be forced to switch to a more current performance shoe. “I’ll be switching to the LeBron 11 now,” said Ginobili, while examining his blown out sneaker at his locker. “I have a few NIKEiDs on the way.”

Ginobili, who spent most of last season’s games in the Nike LeBron X, says he’s a big fan of LeBron’s shoes because they are durable, sturdy and “hold up great on the court.”

“Manu is so hard on a pair of shoes,” said Wade. “Hopefully the LeBron 11s hold up for him and last as long he plans on playing.”
