Nicki Minaj did a spread for the New York Times and finally got the time to explain her side of the story on major topics such as the VMA dispute with Miley Cyrus and the beef’s between Drake/Meek & Wayne/Birdman.
After she made her statements regarding Cyrus, the interviewer proceeded to ask about her take on the feuds currently going on in Hip-Hop. When asked about Drake and Meek Mill Nicki responded,

While keeping it very subtle and a little detailed as possible, we can tell Nicki hated being put in the middle of the situation.
The interviewer proceeded to ask Nicki about her stance in the Wayne and Birdman battle to which then she got irritated. We’re assuming the way the question was worded is what set Nicki off.

Four grown-ass men are having issues between themselves, and you’re asking me do I thrive off drama. That’s the typical thing that women do. What did you putting me down right there do for you? 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.”
Nicki then proceeded to walk away from the interviewer, ending the interview.

Speaking of the old Nicki, here’s an interview with Sway and Nicki from 2012 where Nicki discusses being on the borderline of Pop and Rap, the Grammys and more…
