Watch the Cyrus Family's Jaw-Dropping Reaction to Nicki Minaj's Miley Diss


Miley Cyrus wasn't the only one caught off guard by Nicki Minaj's harsh words for her at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night.

MTV cameras caught the reaction of the Cyrus family sitting in the audience during the epic moment, including Miley's parents, Tish and Billy Ray Cyrus, and her younger sister, 15-year-old Noah. And if you need any more proof that the jaw-dropping exchange wasn't staged, check out the super awkward smile on Tish's face.

... At least Billy Ray knows when it's time to take a good picture!

Minaj's call-out was, of course, in response to Miley telling The New York Times that the "Anaconda" rapper was "not too kind," and that she made her initial issue about being snubbed for an MTV Video of the Year nomination -- racism against black women in the music industry -- all about herself.

Despite the harsh words, the 22-year-old "Wrecking Ball" singer was obviously shaken when the outspoken 32-year-old rapper put her on blast on live TV.

Still, Miley was able to bounce back pretty quickly after claiming her words were manipulated, suggesting onstage that losing a VMA was "no big deal." "The past winners of this award [Artist to Watch] have gone on to incredible success and the past losers of the awards have still gone on to make their mark on the VMA stage. Me," she said. "I lost this award back in 2008 and I was fine with it. Whatever, because it's no big deal! It's just an award and I persevered! So here are the nominees still vying for your vote. Congratulations, Nicki."
