Did Nicki Minaj throw shade at Jennifer Lopez for 'Anaconda' performance at the AMAs?

Did Nicki Minaj Give Jennifer Lopez Side-Eye During AMAs Performance?

Nicki Minaj says she doesn't know why people are accusing her of throwing shade!

When Jennifer Lopez hosted the American Music Awards on Sunday, the superstar kicked off the show with a wild medley of pop hits -- including Minaj's "Anaconda."

As Lopez broke into the Pinkprint singer's booty-focused hit and the crowd went wild, the AMA cameras cut to the audience and caught Minaj looking a little less than thrilled.

Although Minaj doesn't quite look like she's getting ready to throw down, fans on Twitter couldn't help but point out how unimpressed she seemed.

Nicki responded to the accusations on Twitter, explaining that she wasn't trying to start anything -- in fact, she was "looking at my one face on the screen while I'm looking to the right."
