The road leading up to Nicki’s VMA appearance was paved with tons of drama. After tweets slamming Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner and even little Stormi, fans speculated on what would happen when they all met face to face at the awards ceremony.

However, even with a shady comment from Nicki during her Best Hip Hop Video acceptance speech, and her performance at the Oculus (far away Travis and from Radio City Music Hall, where the main show took place), the show went on without a hitch.

In a video posted to her Instagram Story, the Trinidad-born rapper showed fans that she was enjoying herself even behind the scenes. “I want to say happy belated birthday to the Queen of all Queens, Miss Madonna” she said.
