Cause baby now we got bad blood.
Nicki Minaj complained she didn’t get a MTV VMA nomination for Video of the Year for her “Anaconda” music video, pointing out (what we think is) a race issue.
When the "other" girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
Taylor Swift caught wind of the Tweets, and assumed it was aimed at her and had a strict message for Minaj.
@NICKIMINAJ I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 21, 2015
What the actual?
Naturally, Nicki Minaj responded, confused why Swift was taking fire directly at her.
Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn't say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this. @taylorswift13— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
After an immediate social media backlash, Tay Tay made nice nice with Nicki, though it still comes off as shade to us.
@NICKIMINAJ If I win, please come up with me!! You're invited to any stage I'm ever on.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 21, 2015
It now appears Taylor Swift caused the very thing she scolded Nicki for in the first place: a rift.
Nothing I said had to do with Taylor. So what jabs? White media and their tactics. So sad. That's what they want. https://t.co/AfcwoyDvpg— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
