Taylor Swift Shuts Up Nicki Minaj over VMAs Complaints: Kendrick Lamar Tops Nomination Leader Board!July 22, 2015
G98.7FM Entertainment News: THE JUICE WITH JEM
Rapper Kendrick Lamar leads with five “MTV Video Music Award,” nominations according to the nominee list released yesterday. Taylor Swift follows with four, while Ed Sheeran and Beyoncé have nods each. Nicki Minaj was nominated for two awards – “Best Female” and “Best Hip-Hop” Video but the rapper took to Twitter to express her distaste that she wasn’t nominated for “Video of the Year” as well.
She started by thanking MTV for the ones she DID get but then joked in the same tweet that her “Feeling Myself” video with Beyoncé must have missed the submission deadline. About an hour later, she tweeted that if she was, quote, “a different KIND of artist, ‘Anaconda’ would be nominated for best [choreography] and Video of the Year as well.” She sent out yet ANOTHER tweet saying quote, “OTHER girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture, they get that [Video of the Year] nomination.” THEN she said “If your video celebrates women with very SLIM bodies, you will be nominated for Video of the Year.”
Minaj’s last tweet may have been talking about Taylor Swift who is up for “Video of the Year” alongside Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, Mark Ronson, and Ed Sheeran. Swift responded to Minaj’s tweet saying quote “@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love and support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”
Since then the two have made up.
