“Dark Horse” singer Katy Perry warned rapper Nicki Minaj about Taylor Swift months ago: "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing," she tweeted. Even though Perry didn’t call out the “Bad Blood” singer by name when her Rolling Stone interview came out in September, it was obvious to all who knew about the bubbling feud between Perry and Swift. This seemed to be the case on Wednesday.

Now that Swift is embroiled in a battle with Minaj, Perry, 30, joined in. In reference to the Video of the Year nominees for the 2015 Video Music Awards, Perry said she thought it was “ironic” someone talked about women fighting each other since that someone “unmeasurably [sic] capitalizes on the take down of a woman.” (Perry made sure not to call out Swift by name.)

Perry’s 72.9 million fans liked her statement. It was shared more than 20,000 times and received more than 25,000 likes. The singer then added that the “real travesty” was that a “gem” like Rhianna’s BBHMM was not nominated for Video of the Year.

The Swift vs. Minaj scandal unfolded Tuesday night when the 32-year-old rapper claimed her video, "Anaconda," was not nominated because it did not feature “slender bodies.” Swift, 25, took this as an insult and said she was disappointed Minaj would “pit” women against each other. Swift then told her to call out one of the three men who were nominated in the same category. Even though the former country star tried to backtrack when Minaj denied her tweet was about her; it was obvious that she wasn’t pleased with the rapper.

Aside from Swift, other nominees for the Video of the Year award include Beyoncé for “7/11,” Ed Sheeran for “Thinking Out Loud,” Kendrick Lamar for “Alright” and Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars for “Uptown Funk.”
