Apparently, imitation isn't always the sincerest form of flattery.

Such was the case for Miley Cyrus after the 21-year-old pop star shared a copy-cat pic of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" cover art and subsequently made the shot her Twitter profile pic (you know, the image where the rapper wears nothing but a pink G-string and matching sports bra while flaunting her famous booty for the camera)—which the "Super Bass" beauty found less than amusing.

"Give me one good reason why Miley made this her twitter avi. #AnacondaOniTunes," the 31-year-old captioned Cyrus' doctored shot, adding a series of emojis to suggest she's crying with laughter.


Of course, that wasn't all the rapper had to say, and, shortly after, Minaj regrammed another one of Miley's Photoshopped pics, writing, "No chill ZONE!!!!"


No word yet if the "We Can't Stop" singer got wind of Minaj's remarks, but if she did, she certainly wasn't fazed by the rapper's comments, considering she proceeded to post another carbon-copy pic (sans any caption) with info on how to vote for herself for the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards.

Despite the social media back-and-forth between these two, the short-haired stunner has previously praised the rapper (and even dressed up as Nicki for Halloween), calling Minaj one of her "top five favorite singers"—a remark which was well-received by The Other Woman star.

"OMG! Miley is sooooo cute and every time I see her I say again and again that she is so damn cute and down to earth. I really love her," the Pink Friday rapper told E! news in July 2013. "What a compliment that was to me. I really love her back. Thanks Miley!"

This isn't the first time Minaj's racy cover art has made headlines as of late. Following the release of the image, the "Starships" rapper seemingly found herself on the receiving end of criticism, and unsurprisingly, she didn't hesitate to fire back at her haters.
