This is entertaining as hell. A huge feud broke out between two pop stars: Nicki Minaj vs. Taylor Swift. What is Nicki mad about? Nicki’s upset ’cause her video “Anaconda” didn’t get nominated for “Video of the Year” and for the Best Choreography categories.
Minaj tweets: “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.” She also tweeted, “When the ‘other’ girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination.”
And then Nicki made the claim that black women don’t get rewarded for influencing pop culture.
It seems like she was calling out Taylor Swift but not mentioning her name but Taylor was quick to respond anyway. Who’s side am I gonna take? Neither. I’m gonna stay neutral on this one. I can understand what Nicki is talking about, though ’cause MTV just keeps ramming Taylor Swift down our throats every year. It’s getting old. Taylor’s been hogging up the spotlight on award shows for a pretty long time now. Both the Grammy’s and the VMA’s.
I don’t agree with Nicki that black women don’t get rewarded for influencing pop culture ’cause that’s a load of crock. The music industry has been ramming black females in pop music such as Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Janet Jackson and many others down our throats for a pretty long time now. The industry have been given black women in pop music so many opportunities so I don’t know what Nicki is talking about?
Taylor’s hogging award shows so it’s gonna start to make other artists upset and all jealous. Nicki is probably just jealous nothing more. Back to Taylor Swift, ever noticed that each time Taylor releases a new album, they usually come out before award show season?
I do dig Taylor’s music myself but I do think she’s a bit egotistical and full of herself.
Anyhow, I think this feud is staged. Ya know? Fake as a way to hype up the VMA’s and get people interested in watching. A ploy for more ratings. I actually dig Nicki’s “Anaconda” btw, it’s actually not a bad pop song.
