Nicki Minaj decided to have an all-out war and bash the biggest pop star on the planet Taylor Swift in over-the-top shade mode. On Twitter Nicki Minaj decided to call out the music industry (by using Taylor Swift as an example) over the prejudice against black people and other minorities who are not nominated for their music.
Nicki Minaj said:
“If I was a different ‘kind’ of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year. When the “other” girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination”
If you replace the word “other” with ‘white’ you get exactly what Nicki Minaj meant to say on the subject. There is a valid point to what Nicki Minaj has sparked a global conversation about. Far too many times other people do not get nominated for ridiculous things such as age, race, look, relevancy and the list goes on and on.
If Madonna was still in her mid-twenties then she would be nominated for an award but since she is 56 years old the music industry attempts to demolish what was not manufactured by the music industry. That is why you never hear of Madonna being nominated for any music awards or receiving any MTV VMAs.
In response to Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift responded in the best way possible:
“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. If I win, please come up with me!! You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”
It is not Taylor Swift’s problem if they decide to nominate her for most of the awards at the MTV VMAs. It would be a bad business move if they did not nominate her. If you want the hottest pop star in the world to show up, then you got to pull out every trick in the bag.
Nicki Minaj responded back by saying:
“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 @taylorswift13.”
Taylor Swift works hard for everything she has achieved and is living the dream. ‘Anaconda’ on a lyrical level is quite atrocious and not a song anyone without a big booty wants to dance to in a club. On the other hand ‘Shake It Off’ has a universal message and all types of people can dance to it in the club, and most of all is a great pop song.
