Bad Blood Part Two? Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj Have Heated Twitter Exchange Over MTV VMA Nod

Posted on

Some inspiration for “Bad Blood” – Part Two?

Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj found themselves in a heated Twitter exchange after the “Anaconda” rapper spoke out about the MTV Video Music Awards nods – particularly her lack of a nomination for video of the year.

Many perceived Minaj, 32, to be taking aim at Swift (who is up for the award) when she Tweeted on Tuesday: “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.”

Swift – who shares the nomination with Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson, Ed Sheeran, Beyoncé, and Kendrick Lamar – replied to Minaj, saying: “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..”

Minaj was quick to reply – and deny – that she was casting any shade on Swift, 25, herself.

“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.” Minaj wrote in her response.

Swift was quick to call a truce as she finished the exchange on a friendly note, saying: “If I win, please come up with me!! You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”

The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, with MIley Cyrus as host, will air Aug. 30 at 9 p.m. EST.
