An unlikely Twitter spat went down yesterday between one of America's musical icons, Cher, and fans/associates of Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj.
The war of words was sparked when one of Cher's followers messaged her asking if she had heard a song by Nicki that was dissing her.
“@cher did you know that b*tch @NICKIMINAJ dissed you in her song DIDITONEM,” asked the fan.
The lyrics in question are from Minaj's song "Did It On 'Em" in which she raps, “If you could turn back time--Cher/You used to be here but now you gone--Nair.”
The song wasn't a Cher diss and it's highly likely Cher has never listened to it, but she replied back to the fan by writing, “Ive seen lots of people come & go! No biggie!”
That was all Team Minaj needed to see before they launched an attack on the singer. Nicki's friend/hype man Scaff Beezy responded quickly.
"Yo @cher listen to the words b4 you say dumb sh*t on twitter," he wrote. "Do you know what a rap metaphore is??? TM is a cult you dont want it with!!"
One she realized she wasn't being dissed in the song Cher apologized. “U R right ! Someone said I was dissed..I’ve been dissed b4,but instead of finding out I just got defensive ! I should know better.”
The argument should have ended there, but it didn't as people continued to insult Cher who finally got fed up. “Gimme a fkn break! Said I was dumb!" she wrote before deleting her tweets.
Nicki got wind of what was going on and messaged Cher, writing "@Cher #stopit5."
Meanwhile, Scaff Beezy continued to rant. Check out a play-by-play of what happened courtesy of Rap-Up.
