A couple of days ago, Minaj and Swift got into a Twitter tiff over the former’s saltiness about not being nominated for Video of the Year. Swift’s clip for “Bad Blood” was nominated, and she took Minaj’s barbs (no pun) as a slight, tweeting, “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.”
Nicki responded with incredulousness, said the media was spinning a feud and threw in a woe is me because I’m only getting treated like this because I’m a Black woman (Beyonce is up for Video of the Year for “7/11″—but she does have a point), too.
Nevertheless, Swift has rethought her stray, poorly aimed shots.
“I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ,” tweeted Swift late this morming (July 23).
Nicki accepted Swift’s apology. She shouldn’t expecting one from Safaree anytime soon, though.
