[Warning: This post contains spoilers from Wednesday's episode of Empire, "Fires of Heaven."] It was the most talked about twerk since Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke performed at the MTV VMAs. In the season two opener of Empire, Anika (Grace Gealey) showed Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) she was willing to do whatever it takes to fight for a piece of Empire, including answer to the name 'Anita' and shake her groove thing on the dance floor with interested investor Mimi Whiteman (Marisa Tomei). "That was so much fun. I was expecting that it would shock people; whether or not

Welcome to Outrage Watch, HitFix's semi-regular rundown of entertainment-related kerfuffles. Not anxious enough already? Get your fix of righteous indignation below, and stay posted for outrage updates throughout the week. Nicki Minaj has a new beef -- and this time it isn't with Taylor Swift or Miley Cyrus, but with New York Times Magazine contributor Vanessa Grigoriadis. The pop titan lost her cool during a recent profile for the magazine when questions moved to the still-brewing feud between Minaj's boyfriend, rapper Meek Mill, and her Young Money labelmate Drake (the former accused the latter of using ghostwriters for his raps, leading to a series of dis tracks). This is in addition to the legal conflict unfolding between Young Money founder and rapper Birdman and Lil Wayne, who is suing his label boss for $51 million for withholding fees. "They’re men, grown-ass men," said Minaj when asked about the feuds. "It’s between them. »

Following their VMAs spat, where Nicki confronted Miley while accepting her award, saying, ''This bitch that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press… Miley, what's good," the rapper opened up to the New York Times about the incident.
''The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls," Nicki told the Nyt.
Tensions initially flared after Miley said Nicki was ...

Nicki Minaj abruptly ended an interview with a journalist who asked her about the feud between rapper Drake and her boyfriend Meek Mill, and whether she “thrived off drama.” ”That’s disrespectful,” Minaj fired back at New York Times Magazine writer Vanessa Grigoriadis. ”Why would a grown-ass woman thrive off drama?” Grigoriadis openly admits her choice of words was, in fact, “offensive,” and tried to apologize, but “only made matters worse.” See Video: Nicki Minaj Calls Out Miley Cyrus at MTV VMAs ”What do the four men you just named have to do with me thriving off drama?” she asked »

Nicki Minaj isn't backing down! The rapper got extremely candid about her feud with Miley Cyrus in the new issue of the New York Times Magazine. You might remember, the pop stars first started fighting when Miley commented on Nicki's Twitter war with Taylor Swift ... which started after Minaj's music video for "Anaconda" didn't get nominated for Video of the Year. "If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don't respect your statement because of the anger that came with it. And it's not anger like, 'Guys, I'm frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.' You made it about you. Not to sound like a bitch, but that's like, 'Eh, I didn't get my Vma.' If you want to make it about race, there's a way you could do that. »

Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus made headlines in August for their feud at the MTV Video Music Awards, but while the show is in the past, their back-and-forth is not. Prior to hosting the show on Aug. 30, Miley gave an interview to The New York Times and criticized Nicki for getting into a Twitter feud with Taylor Swift over the fact that not enough black vocalists were nominated for video of the year. Miley went on to call the rapper "not too kind." Nicki, who famously said, "Miley, what's good?" on stage during the show, spoke about the moment to The New York Times for its Culture 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 »

Nicki Minaj's meme-making onstage diss for Miley Cyrus might seem like ages ago — the year in music has moved that fast — but the New York Times (where the feud originated) isn't done asking about it. In the magazine's new interview with Minaj, the pop force speaks on the events that prompted her to go off-script. "‘I saw [Cyrus] just looking at me, with her face screwed up, and I thought, What the!," she remembers. Not long after, the words "Miley, what's good?" poured out of her mouth, and a beef was born. But it wasn't entirely a snap judgment on Minaj's part to call Cyrus out. As Minaj tells it, Miley's cultural appropriation and erasure of black women has been a thorn in her side for some time: "The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you »

Nicki Minaj won't apologize for calling out Miley Cyrus. The rapper's beef with the singer started in August, when Cyrus weighed in on Minaj's Twitter miscommunication with Taylor Swift. In an interview for The New York Times, Cyrus said she hadn't followed the social media spat because of Minaj's angry approach. "If you do things with an open heart and you come at things with love, you would be heard and I would respect your statement. But I don't respect your statement because of the anger that came with it. And it's not anger like, 'Guys, I'm frustrated about some things that are a bigger issue.' You made it about you.

What's good? Nicki Minaj still isn't a fan of Miley Cyrus. The "Anaconda" rapper broke her silence about their epic 2015 MTV Video Music Awards beef during a new interview with the New York Times magazine for its Culture issue. As previously reported — and heard around the world! — Minaj called out the VMAs host, 22, on stage after accepting the Moonman for Best Hip Hop Music Video on Aug. 30. At the time, she was responding to an interview Cyrus did with the New York [...] »
The media may have considered the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards a disappointment after ratings continued to decline since peaking in 2012, but former MTV president Van Toffler believes the mark the Miley Cyrus-hosted event left on both social and traditional media the following day proves otherwise. “There is a complete disconnect between measurement and consumption,” Toffler told moderator Jason Hirschhorn on Tuesday at The Grill, TheWrap’s sixth annual Media Leadership Conference. Despite being broadcast on an additional six channels owned by parent company Viacom, the unpredictable award show attracted 500,000 less viewers than 2014. On MTV alone, the VMAs were watched by. »

Comedian Taran Killam may be “Saturday Night Live’s” official Trump impersonator this season, but he’s getting some stiff competition from Hillary Clinton. It seems the former Secretary of State’s “Saturday Night Live” impersonation of the Manhattan real estate developer last weekend is getting rave reviews from the people who matter most: voters. While answering questions during a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday, Clinton was asked to deliver an encore performance of the Gop frontrunner.

Things may have gotten a little too close for comfort when Hugh Jackman stopped by The Tonight Show on Monday. During Hugh's appearance, he and Jimmy Fallon played a game of Phone Booth with Shaquille O'Neal. Every time a contestant answered a trivia question incorrectly, or if the opposing player got theirs right, a mystery guest joined one of the stars in their booth. The game got even more interesting when Jimmy brought out a flock of surprise stars including Alex Trebek, Megan Boone, and The Blue Man Group. Watch the fun game above, then watch Jimmy throw hilarious shade at Miley Cyrus in a recent episode. »

Miley Cyrus's hosting stint and musical performance on Saturday Night Live this past weekend was the party before the party. E! News has learned that the celeb, who pulled double duty over the weekend for the famous NBC show's premiere in New York, celebrated her big night until the wee hours of the morning. The "Wrecking Ball" singer stepped out after her gig to attend an after-party at Rosa Mexicano sporting a sheer black top with strategically-placed sunflowers to cover her naughty pillows, and a short black skirt over sheer, shimmery stockings and black heels. Cyrus also made sure to accessorize with huge happy face earrings with a matching handbag, and pulled her blond dreadlocks into a »
Miley Cyrus has a new No. 1 fan, and that's John Mayer. The "Half of My Heart" singer took to Twitter Sunday to gush over Miley's "amazing" new album, Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz. He started his tweets by referencing some of the lyrics from the song "Lighter." "'We never get to see ourselves sleeping peacefully next to the ones that we love,'" he tweeted, adding, "I'm totally transfixed by this Miley Cyrus album." He continued to fanboy about her new work, which she performed during her hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend. The 37-year-old performer was in awe of Miley's new sound and inspired lyrics, which seemed to have stemmed »
We'd waited months, debated Twitter fouls and argued over the too-much-too-soon of it all — finally, last week, we got a taste of what a Trevor Noah-led Daily Show would actually be like. The South African comedian had the tall task of replacing Jon Stewart, who over a decade ago turned the politically savvy late-night show into a nightly ritual for many Americans (and more recently, a reliable source for "so-and-so destroys such-and-such" articles on the Internet). The first few nights mostly inspired a lot "he seems unflappable" comments — and »
Donald Trump was a huuuuuuge part of the "Saturday Night Live" Season 41 premiere. Miley Cyrus was the host and musical guest, but she was arguably upstaged by the real Hillary Clinton, who played Val the bartender opposite Kate McKinnon, playing Hillary. The real Hillary did a hilarious Donald Trump impression, which followed Taran Killam's Donald Trump impression, which was part of the SNL cold open. That opening also included Cecily Strong as Trump's wife Melania, who mocked her own husband.
The Donald responded the way so many celebs do nowadays -- by retweeting the flattering opinions of fans. So here are a few reactions from Trump('s minions):

The X Factor is well and truly under way, and we've been keeping an eye on everything that's been going on...
When is The X Factor on TV?
The show kicked off on August 29 - and in fact, in an attempt to avoid any clashes with Strictly Come Dancing, ITV bosses have unveiled the full schedule right from the off, so we know everything that's coming. You can get a proper look at it here, but auditions continue until Saturday, September 19 with boot camp kicking off on September 20. That's the first of five boot camp shows - two set in a country house, and then three episodes of the dreaded Six Chair Challenge. They're all on Sundays, to avoid the Rugby World Cup, but once that's out of the way, we'll get Judges' Houses on October 24 and October 25... and then come the big live shows from October 31. And the grand final? »
