Taylor Swift Apologizes to Nicki Minaj: 'I Thought I Was Being Called Out'

UPDATE: Nicki has accepted Taylor’s apology…and had something to say to Katy Perry as well.

Taylor Swift has taken to Twitter to publicly apologize to Nicki Minaj after their back and forth over the MTV VMAs tweets.

“I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ” the 25-year-old entertainer wrote just moments ago to Nicki.

It all started when Nicki went off on Twitter about her VMA nominations, and Taylor thought one of Nicki‘s tweets was directed towards her. Taylor wrote back to Nicki and called her out.

    I like it when people accept their mistake and apologize. It was nice of Taylor :)

  • forrest gump

    take it easy taylor its all right now.

  • AllissaUnder

    Exactly. At least it wasn’t one of those: “I am sorry for those who were offended” non apologies. She gets a lot of hate, which is so often not deserved.

  • stitch

    I hope nicki knows how taylor exposed herself and knows she isn’t what everyone thinks she is. She even overstepped further by assuming she would win the award even if nicki WAS nominated by saying she could come up on stage with her. Maaaan I hope nicki does not forget that lil tidbit of arrogance she exposed herself with to have. You better watch your back NICKI cause its not like anyone else is.

    The almighty saint swift has apologized (only because people called her out on her bullshit because if people hadn’t she would’ve never done so and would’ve stand by her original statement btw *eye roll* ) maybe stop thinking everything someone says or does is about you? idk just a thought and maybe then you won’t have your foot in your mouth. Geez, and she is still very much a hypocrite because feminism and woman bringing other women up only applies to women she likes and not ones SHE does not, but you must like her as well because if you do not you are indeed putting women against each other. Whatevs…

  • Danae

    Yes, because the whole world revolves around Taylor and the whereabouts and thoughts of this American Sweetheart.

  • Thomas

    She’s so afraid of black people

  • Davis

    Wimpy Taylor

  • Scarlett

    She misunderstood because she apparently she thinks the world revolves round her.

  • VanityInsecurity

    People are so harsh.. whatever Swift might have thought.. she recognizes she’s wrong & apologized.. much more than what most artists do..

  • moonbeams62

    She didn’t “recognize she was wrong.” Her PR team told her an apology was the best strategy to reclaim the high ground and turn off the negative press she’s getting. Taylor thinks the world revolves around her. Well now she embarrassed herself by jumping into something where she didn’t belong. She thinks she speaks for all entertainers, but she doesn’t. She is even trotting out Ed Sheeran to help mop up her mess.

  • devvv

    She apologized but she’s already about half way done with the song by now.

  • suk bin

    Kanye West’s fault

  • Amazing Amy

    Now we can all move on to more important things, like, what’s happening with the Jenner-Kardashian clan.

  • Baseliner

    does taylor have any black friends

  • hazeldust

    I haven’t been following this story closely, but from what I see, Nicki made a comment – didn’t say anything about race. Then threw in the race card – making the white people uncomfortable. And then blamed them for not understanding it was about race.

    If she had written her true meaning in the INITIAL tweet then this would have all been avoided.

    All parties are at fault.

  • mandyz

    So she (or her PR made her) apologize to Nicki in order to look honorable and totally blow over Katy’s tweet. Sorry Taylor, Katy is right regardless of whether you apologize to Nicki, respond to Katy, or keep your mouth shut.

  • VanityInsecurity

    dude chillax. She didn’t commit a murder.. but I can see you have some built up aggression over Taylor..

  • LaCroix

    and you know this how? a mind reader or are you a fly in the wall in Swifts house? You sound like a damn hater. Taylor sells out like nobody’s business .. she gives back to fans like no other artist & you’re hung up on a misunderstanding.

  • mandyz

    Oh god no lol

  • plez

    I’m so tired of the bs. With all the real things happening (Justice for Sandra Bland), there so much reaction because Nikki had a diva temper tantrum because she did not get a best video nom and Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran were stupid enough to fall for it.

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    he is armenian

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    I can’t see where she apologized for demonizing Katy Perry only because dancers hate to work with such an egocentric person.

  • Ignii

    Of course Nicki called Taylor out! What a hypocrite! Taylor shouldn’t have apologised but she did because she is more intelligent than this horrible and mean person whatever the colour. It isn’t a matter of color . Taylor is on top and will stay there a long time. Minaj had forgotten Taylor had invited her on stage when she was NOTHING.

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    lorde is so dark

  • Ignii

    Done with the song!!!!!!!! LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOlL Plus it is as incorrect as Perry tweet!

  • Ignii

    Taylor respects eveybody and all the differences! She is not afraid because intelligent people whatever their color is respect her for her intelligence, her talent and her generosity!

  • Ignii

    Several. Serayah is red or black? The Weeknd is black or white?

  • Guest

    Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry are just jealous of Taylor Swift. Physically, she’s everything they’d both like to be, whether they want to admit it or not.

  • MaryCHollars
  • Vavyan Larkin

    You do realize that this whole drama is about a VMA nomination right?
    I mean… seriously. Just pathetic!
    MTV does not even air music video anymore… so who cares about who/what they are nominating? It’s not a Grammy nom.
    And now see the list of “celebs” jumped into this “fight”.
    Come on! It’s ridiculous!

  • KnutesNiche

    Does this mean Swift and Minaj, affectionately known as the S&M Girls, could soon be writing and creating together, characterizing our moms sisters, grandmas, daughters and aunts as *itches and *hores?

    Can’t wait to hear Swift join Minaj in calling the maternal half of our population “itches!

    One other thing. In her “Wuchoo Know” Rap artistry performance, Ms. Minaj asks, “Should I get the black or the chrome 22?”

    When they become really tight buds, will Minaj help Swift choose the appropriate color firearms accessories to go with her outfits?
