Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift insist that they weren’t in a fight…but it sure sounds like a fight (Via twitter).
Tuesday afternoon the “Super Bass” rapper sounded off on her MTV Video Music Awards snub, targeting Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” video:
“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” she tweeted. “Oh but trust me. I’ll be on that stage to collect my awards for vid of the year. Feeling Myself & Anaconda.”
Yeah, what other video has a bunch of very skinny (mostly white) women in it? Yeah, exactly.
“@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you,” Swift wrote. “It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”
Minutes later, Minaj responded and tried to explain that black women do not get enough recognition for their influence on pop culture.
“Huh? U must not be reading my tweets,” she wrote. “Didn’t say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this. @TaylorSwift13.”
Then, Kim Kardashian got involved?
The reality star joined in by tweeting a picture of her with the caption, “Imma let you finish but…” She later deleted the tweet and clarified that her message had nothing to do with the words being exchanged by the music superstars.
And now everybody’s denying a fight happened at all.
“Nothing I said had to do with Taylor. So what jabs,” Minaj wrote online. “White media and their tactics. So sad. That’s what they want.”
As for Swift, she just delivered a gracious invite we can’t help but be envious of. “@NICKIMINAJ If I win, please come up with me!!” Swift tweeted. “You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”
What about Kim Kardashian, Taylor? Is she invited on any stage you’re on (I hope not).
Who do you think is to blame for this big twitter tizzy?
