Music fans sure do love a good beef.
Nicki Minaj raised eyebrows Thursday night when she sent out a simple tweet that some speculated might be about Taylor Swift, who dropped her highly anticipated new single “Look What You Made Me Do” that same night.
Minaj did not name Swift in the tweet, and it’s unclear whether the post was a jab at the 27-year-old singer at all. But that didn’t stop the Barbz — and the Swifties — from questioning whether the stars’ feud had been reignited.

“This is for @taylorswift13,” one person replied to the post.
The speculation comes about two years after Minaj and Swift famously feuded when the rapper spoke out about her lack of a nomination for video of the year at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, attributing the snub to racism in the music industry.
Swift, who among the artists who were nominated, responded to Minaj’s tweet, accusing the star of pitting “women against each other.”
Minaj noted that she made no mention of the “Style” singer, and Swift changed her tune, quickly calling a truce in a follow-up post, writing, “If I win, please come up with me!!” (Swift ended up taking home the award.)
Swift later tweeted an apology to the rap star, writing that she “missed the point” of Minaj’s tweets. The two seemed to put all the “Bad Blood” behind them, and Swift joined Minaj on the VMA stage in a show-stopping performance.
