Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift Tweets About VMAs

Taylor Swift Responds to Nicki Minaj: "I've Done Nothing but Love and Support You"

Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift had a Twitter exchange of epic proportions on Tuesday. It all started when Nicki criticized the MTV VMAs nominations, saying her racy hit "Anaconda" should have been up for video of the year and best choreography.

Nicki cited the video's popularity to prove her point, explaining how the clip seemed to wield ubiquitous influence upon its release in August 2014.

Then Nicki compared her treatment to that of "other" girls.

Taylor, whose "Bad Blood" video broke the Vevo record "Anaconda" previously held, saw Nicki's tweet about "women with very slim bodies" and replied.

But Nicki insisted that she "didn't say a word about" Taylor.

Nicki tweeted at Taylor again.

Nicki felt the need to clarify that she was not taking jabs at Taylor.

Taylor didn't address Nicki's criticism of the media or explain why she tweeted at Nicki. Instead, she invited Nicki to join her on stage if she wins.

Nicki retweeted a fan, suggesting that Taylor was missing the point.

Finally, Nicki suggested a media bias has influenced not just the VMA nominations, but also the depiction of music service Tidal.

Along the way, Kim Kardashian seemed to get involved. She tweeted a picture showing her lounging on the couch and pointing her finger. "Imma let you finish but . . . ," she wrote, clearly referencing that time Kanye West interrupted Taylor when she beat BeyoncΓ© at the 2009 VMAs.

But after Twitter users responded, Kim said she wasn't trying to get involved in Nicki and Taylor's discussion.

Instead, she opted for a caption mentioning her new cover of Vogue Spain.

Meanwhile, stars like Aaron Paul, Bruno Mars, and Ed Sheeran admittedly inserted themselves in the drama. Aaron Paul pitched a resolution, saying he wanted to get breakfast with Taylor and Nicki, and Bruno started a fake feud with Ed.
