Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj

Iggy Azalea and Nicki Minaj ran into each other backstage at Sunday’s VMAs, and it was all love. While doing an interview with MTV News, Nicki was greeted by Iggy, who congratulated her on her opening performance.

“You did great, don’t worry it,” she told the Young Money rapper, referring to her wardrobe malfunction during “Bang Bang.”

“Thank you, honey,” responded Nicki.

While she sparked controversy with her BET Awards acceptance speech, Nicki has publicly congratulated her fellow femcee on the success of “Fancy.” “One thing I’m not is a hater. If somebody is doing something and they did it well, and their song is charting well, then congratulations,” she said in May.

Nicki opened the VMAs with “Anaconda,” but she opted not to use snakes after one of her dancers was bitten during rehearsals. But the girl is doing well, and joined her onstage during the performance.

“She handled it like a trooper. She went to the doctor. She’s fine,” said Nicki.

Watch Nicki and Iggy’s backstage run-in below.
