Nicki Minaj & Taylor Swift Spoke on the Phone About VMAs

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.”

    How exactly is Nicki Minaj promoting a healthy body image? She’s had a ton of plastic surgery!

  • Jay

    I love her music but I just don’t think it’s cultural. It’s relevant to what I hear on the radio, I guess that’s culture nowadays.

  • forrest gump

    good to hear.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Are people seriously praising Taylor like she is Jesus or something just for apologizing? Oh wow, Taylor said she is sorry, I bow to you God, get a grip girl! Stupid. No matter what she does, people praise her as if she is our creator. Bye Felicia!

  • shoes4life

    How is anything she sings appropriate for daytime television?? Also, her video got the views because the content of the video was borderline porn and that unfortunately appealed to a lot of guys. So nothing to be bragging about in my opinion.

  • Michele V

    Silly woman needs to realise that quantity doesn’t mean quality. She can get as many views as she wants, her song sucks.

    Am I in bizzarro World. Right is wrong and Wrong is right

    I blame the media who have ginned up this black victimhood the last 8 years , first it was to help Obama now it has snowballed to the ridiculousness .

    Nicki Minaj has plastic surgery to look like that, she would be as skinny as most ” skinny” girls if she hadn’t spend thousands of dollars to fill her body with silicon butt and breasts.

    And she thinks her body image is what media should promote for young girls, are f–King kidding me.

    There were two women nominated , one white and thin another black with curves, thick legs and butt that are NATURAL …

    So how is the media not showing more then one body type.

    And her stupid song is a remake originally released in the 90′s, what culture impact???

    The impact of a video the would make a stripper blush .

    People better wake the f–k up before it’s to late.

    I still prefer Katy Perry :3 both Nicki and Taylor are trash but Katy is queen and she OWNED Taylor by one tweet instead of writing a whole song about her like 12 year old Taylor did.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Sex Sells. period. Nothing this girl has ever done was not about anything but being sexual. Sorry but her argument is moot. And why does she need to speak on the convo her and Taylor had? #lookingforattentionmuch

    Taylor Swift is a bit sensitive and insecure, but I wouldn’t say she was “talking out of turn.” Nikki’s comments were directed towards MTV, but she used Swift as an example, when she could’ve used the other popstar, Beyonce as an example. Truth is Nicki didn’t want to blatantly accuse MTV of being indifferent towards black women, so she went out of her way to convince us that it was about body image. Stupidest mess I’ve ever heard.

    Nicki is delusional. Cultural impact? WTH? Nobody cared about copying her album art until Miley Cyrus (another skinny white girl) did it. Videos are breaking vevo records all the time, should Jennifer Lopez go nuts because “Booty” didn’t get nominated? Her video and others (Miley, JLO, Beyonce) is no more than porn and curious boys/girls watch that trash because 1. There’s no parental block for it and (2.) because the media shoved it down our throats for a week. Soon as the hype died, I’ll say a week later, I heard nothing else about Nicki Minaj and her molded on unmovable and unjiggl-able butt. It was nowhere near Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” video. Now Nicki is using her ex to keep her relevant and now staging a romance with Meek Mill to help market herself and him, but she overestimates her own dominance and power because no-one gives a crap about her relationships, especially with some no-name rapper. Nicki, like Iggy, is a fad that the public quickly got over. Her album flopped and her next one, probably poppier album, will take too.

    It’s because of greed. It’s what happens when we allow deviants to take over. Confused and corrupted individuals like Bruce-thinks-he’s-Caitlyn-Jenner are heroes and actual heroes are ignored because they’re not Kardashians or abominations to mankind– meaning it doesn’t sell papers or attract viewers = ching-ching! Everything wrong is acceptable… just because. The media likes to emphasize on identity when it comes to gender issues. Yet when a white woman identifies herself as a black woman–there is chaos. What makes her any different than Bruce Jenner? Why can’t a 50 year old identify himself as a 12 year old and date 12 year olds? Why is he any different than that dude on Orange is the New Black? Can we not see the corruption here?

    Next we will be giving murderers rights, because there is no secular reason for why a man can’t be a murderer. Psychologist can make the same argument that being a murderer is not a choice as they made with homosexuality. I’ll give it about a year before it’s legal. Corruption at its finest.

    A song allegedly about Katy Perry. It’s no more than a petty rumor to sell an issue of Rolling Stone magazine and draw attention to Swift’s album. Swift may have been inspired by plenty of events and people that led to that song, not just Katy Perry.

    Katy Perry used Nicki and Taylor’s exchange on Twitter to simply draw attention to herself, so I would say Taylor is more of the queen and Perry is no more than a played out peasant.

  • Roro

    I don’t favour any of them but you are definitely right.

  • PlayNice

    The more I read about this, the more it seems like a publicity stunt for the VMAs. Can you say staged and contrived?

  • Ignii

    I never thought Minaj was really beautiful outside (in spite of plastic surgery!) now, I know she isn’t beautiful inside either. What a hypocrite, egotistic , jealous and mean person. I still can’t! Now she even says she loves Taylor and would like to work with her!!!!! It’s a shame. No, your video wasn’t that good Minaj excepted for those who like your big ass…………Taylor didn’t have anything to apologize about. She is beautiful outside and inside.
