Feuds between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift, Meek Mills and Drake, Perez Hilton and Beyonce.
The Twitter world in music lit UP.
In case you missed it… Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift kicked off a Twitter war, which prompted Kim Kardashian, Bruno Mars and Ed Sheeran to join in, leading to Minaj’s boyfriend Meek Mill to attack Drake before Perez Hilton called out Beyonce and stanned for Rihanna.
Are you following? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Nicki Minaj blasted out several Tweets aimed at MTV for their apparent “Anaconda” snub in the Video of the Year category, inferring race as a possible reason why she wasn’t nominated.
If I was a different "kind" of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. 😊😊😊
Taylor Swift caught wind of Nicki’s message and (rightfully?) assumed it was about her and fought back, sending a stern message to Minaj before adding the “Hey Mama” rapper “could” join her on stage if she won VOTY. How gracious.
@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..
By now, keyboards are warm, fingers fluttering, and Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend Meek Mill wants to defend his girl. How? By attacking Drake. For no apparent reason, Mill went in on the “Energy” rapper for not writing his own lyrics.
Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out! 😁
And to round out the Twitter wars, blogger Perez Hilton blasted Beyonce for stealing song writing credits before adding Rihanna has a better musical catalogue. Then, Hilton sarcastically congratulated “people of color” for their Video of the Year nominations, pointing out Minaj’s inherent racism of the “white media.”
I'm thankful @NICKIMINAJ is inadvertently drawing attention to the fact that @Beyonce's Video Of The Year nominated "7/11" is pretty AWFUL!!— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
Since the Beyhive is coming for me, I will remind them I think Rihanna has a better catalogue of songs. She's got more music I love! xoxo— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
And I love Beyonce! She's amazingly talented and a peerless live performer!— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
Also, if Beyonce could stop taking publishing credit from songs she didn't really write, that'd be solid! Rihanna don't pull that shit!— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
@BeyIsKing Many songwriters have gone on the record as to how she operates. No secret.— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
