Taylor Swift Apologizes to Nicki Minaj

Meek Mill is not the only one saying sorry to Nicki Minaj. Taylor Swift has issued a heartfelt apology to the rap queen following their Twitter spat.

The “Bad Blood” singer tweeted an apology on Thursday (July 23), writing, “I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ.”

Earlier in the week, the two clashed over the MTV Video Music Awards nominations. Nicki called out MTV for excluding “Anaconda” from the Video of the Year category.

“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” she said.

Swift, whose “Bad Blood” video is nominated for Video of the Year, took it as a personal attack and responded, writing, “@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.”

However, Nicki clarified that she was not talking about Swift and was trying to make a larger point about black women not being recognized for their contributions to pop culture.

UPDATE: No bad blood here. Nicki has responded to Taylor’s apology. “That means so much Taylor, thank you,” she tweeted, adding, “I’ve always loved her. Everyone makes mistakes. She gained so much more respect from me. Let’s move on.”
