Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift have VMAs Twitter spat
Also, Miley Cyrus will host the MTV VMAs and check out who got nominated
[Updated 24 July 2015] Taylor Swift has apologised to Nicki Minaj on Twitter for her mistake. What will Nicki say next? We doubt Katy Perry will apologise for throwing some shade.
I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 23, 2015
It's that time of the year again when one of MTV's most anticipated shows will be coming to our television screens and we'll either be able to witness the most magical performances or get scarred for life (thanks Miley Cyrus).
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards will commence on 30 August this year with Miley announced to host it but before it can happen; a couple of celebrities have already had a spat about their nominations. Apparently, Nicki Minaj wasn't pleased with her three nominations for Best Female Video, Best Hip Hop video and Best Collaboration for Bang Bang with Jessie J and Ariana Grande.
Hey guys @MTV thank you for my nominations. 😘😘😘 Did Feeling Myself miss the deadline or...?— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
If I was a different "kind" of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. 😊😊😊— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
U couldn't go on social media w/o seeing ppl doing the cover art, choreo, outfits for Halloween...an impact like that & no VOTY 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
Nicki's tweet about "women with slim bodies" caught Taylor Swift's attention and she went on defense as she took a shot at Nicki's comment.
@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
But thankfully, Nicki kept her cool and tweeted her comeback shortly after.
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
We guess Taylor decided that it wasn't such a big deal after all and we gotta say she made a smooth recovery with her reply. Check out the full list of nominees here.
@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
