When Taylor Swift was recording ‘Bad Blood’, we doubt she had a ‘twar’ (Twitter war) with Nicki Minaj in mind. Last night the pop sensation was embroiled in a spat with Minaj following the announcement of the MTV Video Music Awards nominees. Nicki Minaj felt that she was snubbed in certain categories and Taylor Swift took offence but she wasn’t directly mentioned at all. Here’s how it all went down… Nicki Tweeted MTV about her Feeling Myself video which features Beyoncé.







Enter Miss Taylor Swift, who wasn’t directly mentioned by Nicki in her previous tweets…



Not exactly the smartest move by Taylor considering the rapper was sure to fire right back…





The ‘Blank Space’ singer tried to make amends but ‘Barbie’ and her army were not having it.





Nicki quickly told the Twitterverse that her tweets were not directed at Taylor…



And then she hit a quick u-turn…



This Twar speaks to issues that go beyond just the music in its purest sense and hopefully it’s an opportunity to open up this sort of dialogue between the artists and stakeholders in the industry. The fight may not have been ideal in the public eye, but it will surely spur on the uncomfortable issues that are still clearly affecting many.
