Cher and Nicki Minaj were embroiled in a short-lived Twitter feud last week.
Minaj's fans (who call themselves Barbs or Team Minaj) began the feud by tweeting that the "Pink Friday" singer had made fun of Cher in a lyric for her song "Did It On 'Em."
One of the first tweets directed towards the iconic diva read, "@cher did you know thatb***h @NICKIMINAJ dissed you in her song DIDITONEM." The 65-year-old Oscar-winner then replied on Twitter, "Ive seen lots of people come & go! Nobiggie!"
The argument escalated when Minaj's friendScaff Beezy added that the lyric was not actually an insult, noting, "yo @cher listen to the words b4 you say dumb s**t on twitter . . .do you know what a rap metaphore [sic] is??? TM is a cult you dont want it with!!"
Cher then retracted her previous comment: "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."
Minaj, who had stayed out of the argument until nearly the end, Tweeted "stop" at Cher. Cher later deleted her defensive Tweets.
