Nick Young Defends Iggy Azalea After Nicki Minaj BET Awards ‘Diss’


When Nicki Minaj accepted her BET Award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist last month, she did so with an unexpected dose of shade. “What I want the world to know about Nicki Minaj is, that when you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it,” she said.

The Internet quickly took the comment as an opportunity to pit Nicki and fellow nominee Iggy Azalea against each other. “Generally speaking I’m unbothered by anything that ‘happened’ at the BET Awards” the Australian rapper wrote on Instagram several days later.

Nearly a month later, Iggy’s beau and NBA star, Nick Young, defended his girl at the ESPYs Wednesday night (July 16). “Iggy is doing big things and its scaring a lot of people,” said Young in an interview at the ESPN’s Body Issue Party. “She’s number one right now so what can you do when you are at the top right now? Of course they will all come at you.”
