There was some pretty strong speculation that Nicki Minaj was throwing shade in Iggy Azalea's general direction during a speech she gave on Sunday at the BET Awards when she accepted her award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist. Her speech said "What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it," alluding that Azalea was using a ghostwriter (she was also sarcastically dancing during Azalea's performance of 'Fancy', which only fueled the rumors of the beef).

That wasn't the case, though, and Minaj clarified her speech through a series of tweets, which you can read below. Azalea responded this afternoon via Instagram, and you can check that out below as well.

Iggy's response:

“This is my mind state about everything & the only time I’m ever going to refer to this again so go nuts guys, Enjoy it. Ps. If you squint exxxtra hard you can see tiny elves having illuminati meetings between the lines in my notes app too.

I have to say the general explosion of pettiness online in the last few days is hard to ignore & honestly…lame

If I had won the BET award that would’ve been great but it wasn’t my year & I don’t mind – so you shouldn’t either. Generally speaking I’m unbothered by anything that ‘happened’ at the BET awards and just feel worn out by everyone trying to make me have wars with people all the time.

Anyone who wishes me well is welcome in my life & those who don’t can’t get any more of my time. I hate to see everyone exhausting themselves on my behalf over things that I’m still not 100% sure even exist & don’t matter. just let it go.”
