If you were on social media yesterday, you probably saw that…
…Nicki Minaj had a Twitter war with Taylor Swift!
Was it a dig or not? That’s been the word around town recently ever since Nicki Minaj composed a tweet that seemed just like she was talking about Taylor Swift and her infamous “Bad Blood” music video.
Here’s what she said:
That’s a dig, if you ask me!
Okay, so Taylor Swift happens to be best friends with many high profile supermodels from the likes of Gigi Hadid to Karlie Kloss and from Lily Aldridge to Cara Delevingne.
As seen here:
To me, I can’t hardly say that Nicki Minaj wasn’t taking a dig at Taylor Swift, and as much as I love Nicki, I have to stay true to my convictions. Taylor is one of my absolute favorite artists in the world too so I can’t say that I enjoy them fighting with each other.
Taylor’s response was distasteful in my opinion:
“Maybe one of the men took your slot”, is she serious?! Now I don’t know if you know, but “taking your spot” in the hip hop community would mean the same thing as if someone told Nicki Minaj that Iggy Azalea took her spot. That was offensive to me and I know that Taylor simply meant that “one of the men” took her spot for an MTV VMAs nomination for Video of the Year, but still, those are fighting words!
Then came the real kicker, a response from Miss Minaj:
Even though Taylor was unsure of what “this” was? HAHA
“This” to me was Nicki’s own commentary of how body-shaming and racial discrimination is still prevalent in the music industry. I don’t want to get all political on you, but I can see just as you can that because Nicki Minaj’s music video “Anaconda” wasn’t nominated for the MTV VMAs Video of the Year (after amassing hundreds of millions of views on YouTube AND breaking the internet) she could very well infer that the color of her skin and the voluptuous bodies she attempted to glorify were to blame. That seems a bit generalized, but not necessarily since her video was prominent and notable too!
Then Taylor stuck her foot in her mouth:
Taylor just invited Nicki Minaj to come up on stage after this thing happened:
She doesn’t need anyone to pull a Kanye again!
I’m excited for the MTV Video Music Awards and I watch it every year of course! The nominations came out yesterday and Nicki did get nominated for Best Female Video for “Anaconda”.
Now let’s all get along Taylor & Nicki and don’t let there be bad blood 😉
