There’s no more “bad blood” between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj. The pair squashed their feud Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, just one month after they had a fallout on Twitter over the VMA nomination for “Video Of The Year.”
Minaj opened the Video Music Awards by performing her song "Trini Dem Girls," before launching into “The Night Is Still Young.” As Minaj sang the lyrics, Swift appeared on a high rise. Together, Minaj and the “Blank Space” singer performed the chorus and then started to sing a snippet of Swift’s “Bad Blood.”
As previously reported, Minaj and Swift’s feud started in July when the rapper ranted in a series of tweets about “Anaconda” not receiving a “Video Of The Year” nomination. In Minaj’s rant she wrote, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.”
Swift, thinking Minaj’s post was aimed at her getting a “Video of the Year” nomination for “Bad Blood,” quickly responded, tweeting, “@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.” Swift’s response then prompted the 32-year-old rapper to write her initial rant had nothing to do with Swift.
Eventually, the pop star apologized to Minaj, writing on the social media site she “thought I was being called out.” Swift added, “I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki.” While Minaj accepted Swift’s apology, it still led to a number of other celebrities getting involved like Katy Perry, who’s rumored to have a long-running feud with Swift. Taking to social media, Perry posted a tweet slamming Swift for attacking Minaj for supposedly trying to “pit women against other women” when her “Bad Blood” video “capitalizes on the take down of a woman.”
Now, it seems Swift and Minaj have finally made amends once and for all. Check out their performance in the video below.
