Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj Argue on Twitter Over VMAs Snub
The 2015 MTV VMA nominations have been revealed and Taylor Swift has received nine nods. Beyonce, Ed Sheeran, Rihanna and Mark Ronson also received nominations.
Nicki Minaj is up for two MTV VMAs, but she’s angry she didn’t get a nod for Video of the Year.
Nicki went on a Twitter rant after the nominations came out.
“If your video celebrates women with very SLIM bodies, you will be nominated for Video of the Year.”
The only women up for Video of the Year this time around are Nicki’s friend Beyoncé, and TAYLOR SWIFT. And Taylor’s video for “Bad Blood” features a bunch of her skinny model friends. So it’s logical to assume her Tweet was about Taylor.
And Taylor saw it that way, too . . . because she Tweeted, quote, “@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love and support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”
But Nicki denied targeting her, saying, quote, “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.”
Taylor responded by inviting Nicki to KANYE her if she wins . . . quote, “If I win, please come up with me!! You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”
(I’m going to gently call B.S. on Nicki’s claim that her initial comments were NOT about Taylor, if y’all don’t mind.
The VMAs — which is set to be hosted by Miley Cyrus, is scheduled to air on MTV on August 30th.
