Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande whisper furtively to each other at VMAs
Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande exchanged some private words during the MTV Video Music Awards.
One of the highlights of Monday night's in New York's Radio City Music Hall came from the behind-the-scenes livestream when Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande exchanged hushed words.
The two music stars were seated close to one another, and spoke minutes after Minaj was on stage accepting the award for best hip hop video and telling the world how proud she was of Grande.
When the live show cut to commercial, the online stream kept one camera on Minaj and Grande standing near their seats and chatting privately. The two women were talking animatedly, laughing and (in Minaj's case) rolling their eyes and taking turns placing a hand up to the other's ear to continue the conversation.
Here's a snapshot of the moment INSIDER captured in GIF form:
People on Twitter immediately started wondering what on Earth the two music divas could be discussing.
MTV shared a mini-video of the moment and asked fans to tag the "Nicki to their Ariana."
Earlier on Monday, TMZ had reported the seating arrangement would place Nicki Minaj close to Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner. Hours later TMZ edited the report saying Scott and Jenner had been moved away from Minaj due to "optics."
Recently Minaj and Scott were sharing headlines after the former tweeted about Scott's recent album release and the way Jenner had helped him promote it by saying people come see their baby Stormi. Later Minaj called the tweets "saracasm/dry humor."
Some of the tweets about the Minaj/Grande moment at the VMAs was centered on possible chatter about Scott and Jenner given the recent run of controversial headlines. But one going viral tweet about the conversation just cuts from the Minaj and Grande moment into a video from K-Pop band BTS.
We'll likely never know what was said between the two superstars, but their friendship is clearly tighter than ever.
