Following an initial Twitter misunderstanding this week between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift after “Anaconda” and “Feeling Myself” got snubbed in the MTV VMAs Video of the Year category – Click here if you missed it, Minaj has officially and graciously accepted Swift‘s apology, saying “We’re all good,” prior to her performance on Good Morning America Friday.
“I spoke to Taylor Swift yesterday on the phone,” Minaj told host Lara Spencer. “She was super, super sweet and she apologized. She said, ‘Look, you know I didn’t understand the big picture of what you were saying, but now I get it, so we’re all good.'”
Minaj then provided some back-story for Spencer. “I posted something on my Instagram and it just showed the stats of other videos that had been nominated previously, and it just seemed to be a little funny business going on…’Anaconda’ had such a huge cultural impact, and on top of that, we broke the Vevo record. This is actually my third time breaking the Vevo record and ‘Anaconda’ therefore should have been nominated, and I do think if it was the pop girls, they would have had many nominations for it,” she said of similarly scintillating music videos. “I think I got two for ‘Anaconda,’ for Female and for Hip-Hop, and it should have been for [Video of the Year]. That’s all we were saying, and it is what it is.”
