While DONALD TRUMP continues to get the most attention for comments and tweets -- he actually isn't the only celebrity that has the Internet buzzing. A TWITTER war broke out yesterday (7/21) between NICKI MINAJ and TAYLOR SWIFT after MINAJ said she was upset she didn't earn a nomination for video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards.
MINAJ took to TWITTER saying she didn't understand why her video for "Anaconda" wasn't up for the top award. She wrote, "If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year," adding, "When the 'other' girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination."
SWIFT, assuming the post was aimed her way, responded, "I've done nothing but love & support you," continuing, "It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot."
MINAJ responded she never mentioned SWIFT in her tweets, ""Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn't say a word about u," adding, "I love u just as much. But u should speak on this."
SWIFT defused the brief spat, posting, "If I win, please come up with me!! You're invited to any stage I'm ever on."
