After their onstage confrontation at the 2015 MTV VMAs, it looks like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj could be heading for round two. The Anaconda hit maker is still after an apology from Cyrus for comments she made in a recent interview with the New York Times.

"Nicki is hard and doesn't like to be disrespected," a source told Hollywood Life. "Miley needs to take accountability for what she says and just apologise. She's trying to blame the media, saying her words got twisted, but Nicki isn't buying that. [Nicki] thinks she should stop blaming others and watch what she says. Miley likes being outrageous and controversial but she needs to learn to not mess with someone like Nicki."

However, another source told Hollywood Life the former Hannah Montana star will not be waving the white flag any time soon, insisting she is not scared of the 32-year-old rapper. "Miley's basically grown up in this industry and has been fighting bigger and more powerful people and bullies like Nicki for a long time," the insider explained, "If Nicki thinks Miley's going to apologise to her or attempt to censor what comes out her mouth, Nicki's got another thing coming."

At the VMA's, rapper Minaj left fans stunned when she used her best hip hop video acceptance speech to launch a verbal attack against Cyrus. "And now back to this bitch that had a lot to say about me a lot in the press. Miley, what's good?" she told the audience at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles after she thanked her fans and her pastor.

Cyrus, who was standing on a different platform onstage, tried to defend herself, her insisting her remarks about Minaj bringing race issues to the VMAs award in the wake of her spat with Taylor Swift, were taken out of context. The 22-year-old said: "Hey we're all in this industry. We all do interviews and we all know how they manipulate s**t. Nicki, congratu-f-------lations."
