What’s trending: did Nicki Minaj call out Taylor Swift?

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Does Nicki Minaj have a problem with Taylor Swift? Her tweets seem to say so. When Minaj’s video for Anaconda did not earn a VMA nomination for Video of the Year, she tweeted this, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies – you will be nominated for vid of the year.”

Although the tweet did not mention her specifically, Swift took that as a direct knock to her video for “Bad Blood.” Taylor wrote back to Nicki, “It’s unlike you to pit women against each other.”

Making things more confusing for people following the trail of tweets, Minaj responded by saying that she wasn’t talking about Taylor. Then, Taylor invited Nicki on stage with her if she does win Video of the Year.
