Playing Jimmy Kimmel Expertly Explains Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj's Feud With Emojis

If you still can't quite wrap your head around what happened on Sunday night during the MTV Video Music Awards (join the club), Jimmy Kimmel is here to help.

The late night host expertly explained one of the night's most insane moments, when Nicki Minaj put Miley Cyrus on blast, through the storytelling power of emojis. Watch him break it down below.

VIDEO: You Have to See Miley Cyrus' Reaction When Nicki Minaj Called Her Out

You really must watch the clip to get the full effect (and to witness his spot-on use of the poop emoji), but here's what he said:

"A few days ago Miley Cyrus gave an interview to the New York Times in which she said some unflattering things about Nicki Minaj. The Times reporter asked about the Taylor Swift-Nicki Minaj feud -- Twitter feud -- leading up to the VMAs. Miley said Nicki was jealous and unkind and impolite. So when Nicki Minaj accepted her VMA for best Hip-Hop video for 'Anaconda,' she ended her speech by insulting Miley Cyrus and Nicki said, as you heard, 'This b**** that had a lot to say about me the other day in the press,' and then the camera cut to Miley, who looked shocked and upset. And then the camera cut back to Nicki, who mouthed the words, 'Don't play with me b****.' And then Kanye announced he was running for President. And then -- the world ended."

Cyrus may have been briefly shaken up by the drama, but the show must go on! And it did -- all the way to the press room backstage, where she actually passed a joint around amongst photographers. No, we're not joking. See for yourself in the video below.
