Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift’s battle over MTV’s Video Music Award nominations is officially over.
Minaj appeared on “Good Morning America” Friday and said that she and Taylor Swift have ended their feud over the phone. “First of all, I spoke to Taylor Swift yesterday on the phone,” Minaj said. “She was super, super sweet and she apologized. She said, ‘I didn’t understand the big picture of what you were saying but now I get it.’ So we’re all good.”
“We spoke for a long time. We were cracking up laughing on the phone,” Minaj added. “It’s over you guys.”
Minaj also clarified why she was upset about her song “Anaconda” not getting nominated for Video of the Year at the MTV Video Music Awards. “‘Anaconda’ just had such a huge cultural impact. And on top of that, we broke the Vevo record,” she said.
“I do think if it was one of the pop girls, there would have many nominations for it,” Minaj continued. “I think that we just have to have both images for girls. We can’t have only one type of body being glorified in the media because it just makes girls even more insecure than we already are.”
The disagreement began on Tuesday, when the VMA nominations were announced. Minaj launched a stream of tweets blasting the nominations for snubbing her videos because of her race and body type.
Swift fired back defensively by writing, “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.”
