Taylor Swift to Nicki Minaj: “I Missed the Point”
This morning, Taylor Swift tweeted a presumed end to the much-publicized Twitter tiff she had with rapper Nicki Minaj on Tuesday night:
I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki.@NICKIMINAJ

The heated tweet-off started when Nicki Minaj posted about her “Anaconda” video being snubbed in the Best Video and Best Choreography categories of the MTV Video Music Awards, saying that she probably would have been nominated if her video had celebrated “women with very slim bodies.” Taylor, who was nominated in the Video of the Year category and is coincidentally very slim-bodied, took it as a personal attack and fired back. Minaj has yet to tweet-respond to Taylor’s apology.
This isn’t the first apology Minaj has been given in the past 24 hours. Last night, at a concert in Virginia, her fiancé, Philly rapper Meek Mill, groveled at her sparkly feet for calling out Drake on Twitter for not writing his own rhymes. So by my count, the “Anaconda” singer is totally winning the week.
