“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.

While most headlines focused on the 32-year-old rapper’s exchange with Taylor Swift, Nicki says there was a bigger message about racism that was overlooked.
“Marie Claire, thank u ❤️ Time Magazine, The Guardian, New York Times, Complex, Vibe, Karen Civil, TV Guide, etc. The list goes on of news/media outlets who used their voice to help me make a very obvious point,” Nicki wrote.
She continued, “Thank you so much. Nothing to do with any of the women, but everything to do with a system that doesn’t credit black women for their contributions to pop culture as freely/quickly as they reward others. We are huge trendsetters, not second class citizens that get thrown crumbs. This isn’t anger. This is #information. It’s all love to MTV. Kisses to my fans and thank you for my 3 nominations. #ThePinkprintTOUR tonight in VA! Over 15 thousand people. I can’t wait to see u guys. 😘❤️”
While she didn’t use names, the 30-year-old entertainer essentially said she finds it “ironic” that Taylor would call Nicki out for pitting women against each other considering “Bad Blood” is about the “take down of a woman.”
“Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…,” Katy tweeted.
Taylor has never confirmed the track was about Katy, but their dancers basically did.

“Dear @taylorswift13 and @NICKIMINAJ, I love you both. How about we all get together and talk this thru? Coffee? Pancakes?? My treat. Ap” the 35-year-old actor wrote on his Twitter account.
On Tuesday (July 21), Nicki and Taylor had a back and forth – Taylor thought Nicki was throwing shade at her video of the year nomination with a tweet about women with slim bodies.
The issues seem to have been resolved after Taylor sent out a tweet inviting Nicki on stage with her if she wins the VMA.
Many people figured this was Kim‘s response to the whole “Twitter feud,” but she later took to her account to say she had no idea what was going on in the music world. She also deleted the original tweet.

The 25-year-old pop star was nominated for Video of the Year for “Bad Blood” and thought that Nicki was dissing her in a tweet that called out MTV for celebrating videos starring “women with very slim bodies.”
After Taylor accused Nicki of pitting women against each other, the rap star responded by saying that her tweets were not directed at Taylor.
See below for what Taylor said to make nice with Nicki:
The 32-year-old rapper seemingly called out the 25-year-old entertainer’s “Bad Blood” music video, which features several of her model and actress friends.
Nicki started the exchange by tweeting, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊.”
“@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..,” Taylor wrote back.
Nicki then responded, “Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn’t say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this. @taylorswift13″
