Nicki Minaj & Taylor Swift Spoke on the Phone About VMAs

Nicki Minaj is all smiles while hitting the Good Morning America stage for a performance on Friday (July 24) in New York City.

The 32-year-old rapper opened up about her controversy with Taylor Swift and how their feud is over following a phone conversation they had on Thursday.

“First of all, I spoke to Taylor Swift yesterday on the phone,” Nicki said. “She was super, super sweet. She apologized. She said, ‘You know, look, I didn’t understand the big picture of what you were saying but now I get it.’ So we’re all good.”

“I posted something on my Instagram [showing] the stats of other videos that had been nominated previously, and it just seemed to be a little funny business going on. ‘Anaconda’ just had a huge cultural impact, and on top of that, we broke the Vevo record,” Nicki continued. “So this is actually my third time breaking the Vevo record, and ‘Anaconda,’ therefore, should have been nominated. I do think if it was one of the ‘pop girls,’ they would’ve had many nominations for it. I think I got two nominations for ‘Anaconda,’ for Female and Hip-Hop, but it should’ve been for the Year, and that’s all we were saying.”

When speaking about comparisons to Taylor, the rapper said that she thinks “we just have to have both images for girls. We can’t have only, you know, one type of body being glorified in the media, because it just makes girls even more insecure than we already are.”

“It takes a big person to do what Taylor did, and everyone sometimes speaks out of turn. I’ve been there,” Nicki added. “It was big of her to come out and say that. We spoke for a long time, we were cracking up laughing on the phone, and it’s over, you guys.”
