The buck stops here -- at least as far as going beyond a divorce is concerned.

So this is what Nicki Minaj has been teasing!
Following her Complex interview, the songstress has just been unveiled as the cover star of The New York Times Magazine's latest issue!
"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.”
Hopefully Cyrus responds!
"They're men, grown-ass men. It's between them.”
And when pressed about it:
"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.”
It can't be easy being in the middle!
Though this is when her interview started to turn. The interviewer asked, "Is there a part of you that thrives on drama, or is it no, just pain and unpleasantness—”
The 32-year-old cut her off, saying:
"That's disrespectful. Why would a grown-ass woman thrive off drama? 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? 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. That's a premeditated thing you just did."
And like that, the interviewer was kicked out.
Sounds like Nicki had a point there, but let us know what U think!
