Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift may have cemented their friendship back at the 2011 AMAs (the former thanked the young star for broadening fandom for Super Bass) but as of last night, Nicki kicked off on Twitter on the back of the MTV VMA nominations.
Neither "Anaconda" and "Feelin' Myself" were nominated for Video of the Year and even though Nicki's in with a chance to win Hip Hop Video of the Year, she just ain't happy!
Staring a Twitter rant that saw not only Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Kim Kardashian (?!) and of course Tay Tay jump in, is there something in the air that's making celebrities more vocal than usual?
At 10:39PM, Nicki went in for the kill: "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for video of the year."
Barbs showed their unconditional support for Nicki, responding with evidence on the cultural impact Anaconda has had (....really guys?).
At 11:13PM, Taylor hopped on board: "@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."
With things simmering down just before midnight, Taylor offered an olive branch to Nicki - even inviting her to stand on stage with her should she win - but was met with this response: "Oh but trust me. I'll be on that stage to collect my awards for vid of the year. Feeling Myself & Anaconda." #badblood
