If you want anyone on your team, it's Nicki Minaj.
While presenting the award for Best Hip-Hop Song, Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart poked fun at everyone from President Donald Trump to Fifth Harmony, in which Haddish praised the former girl band's member Camila Cabello's numerous nominations.
"For those of you watching at home -- hi, Fifth Harmony!" Haddish joked. The crowd laughed, but Minaj, the category's winner, did not.
"Oh, my God. I wanna thank you guys so much," she began her acceptance speech. "Shoutout to my fans. I know they're watching. They're watching online. And don't be coming for Fifth Harmony because Normani Kordei is that bitch," she added, throwing shade at Haddish.
In response, Kordei thanked Minaj for "lifting" her up and sent her "love" and "congratulations."
"@NICKIMINAJ I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you," she wrote on Twitter. "You perfect queen you! Thank you for lifting me up. God is real. Now y'all know I love me some Nickiiiiiiiiiiiiii. Congratulations on tonight!!! Proud of you always."

Twitter users warned Haddish that you don't throw shade at Kordei and you especially don't do it in front of her pal Minaj. Kordei even retweeted some of her fans responses as well.
Nicki telling the whole world Normani is THAT bitch? Hell yeah that’s the girl empowerment shit I live for #VMAs— Internet Mom (@ashleyippolito) August 21, 2018
Nicki Minaj correcting the teleprompter Fifth Harmony shade saying "Normani is THAT BITCH" is just... mood. MOOD! MOOD! WE BEEN KNEW! #VMAs— Kingsley (@kingsleyyy) August 21, 2018
The best part of the #VMAs is seeing #TiffanyHaddish awkwardly scared laugh after #NickiMinaj calls her out for her 5th Harmony joke for #Normani... After this past week... We all know that Nicki ain't playing when she's mad.— Brian Moote (@MootePoints) August 21, 2018
So we all agree Nicki has to record a track with Normani called “That Bitch” and release it on a deluxe edition of her album so it can go to #1, right?— Sam Donovan (@samisblond) August 21, 2018
Shoutout to Nicki for setting the record straight and defending Normani! I tell you, God is watching over Normani!— xtopher (@ChrisMcPhersn) August 21, 2018
