Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj are the latest celebs to air their dirty laundry over Twitter.
The two songstresses have found themselves going head to head over their respective nominations for this year’s VMA awards. Although, at further inspection it seems like there may have been a miscommunication somewhere along the way.
The nominations for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards were released yesterday, with Taylor being nominated in an outstanding nine categories, including video of the year for Bad Blood.
Ms Minaj also received a hefty amount of nominations, including the nod for best female video and best hip-hop video for Anaconda.
But Nicki made no secret about how she felt slighted not being nominated for video of the year.
The Starships singers took to Twitter to voice her opinion. “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..

As Taylor was nominated amongst Ed Sheeran, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar and Beyoncé, it is understandable that Nicki’s comment seemed like a dig at her.
Taylor replied saying “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.”
However, Nicki’s reply made it seem as if she didn’t know what Tay-Tay was talking about. “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.”

Could Taylor have simply misunderstood Nicki’s slight, or is Ms Minaj simply trying to cover herself after insulting an innocent person?
