Taylor Swift Inserts Herself In Nicki Minaj's VMA Drama. But Why?

This morning Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to let out some frustration after being snubbed in nominations for MTV’s Video Music Awards. Nicki’s video for “Anaconda” didn’t get nominated for video of the year and she’s upset about it and, quite frankly, she’s entitled to her opinion considering “Anaconda” has over 488 million views.

She sent out these tweets in response to hearing the news:

And…cue Taylor Swift. For some reason, Taylor feels the need to interject and assume Nicki’s statements are aimed at her because “Bad Blood” is nominated for video of the year. Personally, I don’t understand why she feels the need to get in everyone’s business. For someone who says she hates drama, she always seems to be at the center of it.

To which Nicki simply responded:

Media outlets then start posting headlines making Nicki out to be the crazy one and Taylor as her usual “wonderful” self. Fans were having none of it.

Kim Kardashian got in the mix as she tweeted out a picture with the caption “Imma let you finish but…” She followed up with a couple more tweets claiming she has no idea what’s going on in the music world because she’s busy posting pictures from her Vogue Spain shoot.

Katy Perry jumped into the debate on Wednesday with this cryptic Tweet:

Without naming names, Katy suggested that it is “ironic” of Taylor to call out Nicki for pitting two women against one another, when she does the exact same thing in “Bad Blood” (which is supposedly about Taylor and Katy’s feud).

Is the feud over? Taylor just apologized to Nicki over, what else, Twitter. Here’s what she said:

Phew…that was a lot to take in. All I can say is #TeamNicki all the way!

UPDATE: Taylor just crashed Nicki’s performance at the VMAs! Looks like all is good between these two ladies:
