Katy Perry roars into Taylor Swift feud.

Perry on Wednesday took to Twitter, where she has more followers than anyone else in the world, to take down Swift in a row set off by the nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards.Things have been getting a little heated between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift after the pair became locked in a Twitter feud over the MTV VMA nominations.

It all started after Minaj’s track Anaconda – which broke video streaming records when it was released last August – missed out on a nomination for video of the year. She suggested that the music industry was biased against her as an African-American woman and preferred female stars “with very slim bodies.” “I’ve done nothing but love and support you. Maybe one of the men took your slot,” tweeted Swift, who has cast herself as a feminist. “Finding it ironic to parade the ‘pit women against other women’ argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the takedown of a woman,” she wrote to her nearly 73 million Twitter followers. Perry, in turn, wrote that she wished that Rihanna had been nominated for “Bitch Better Have My Money,” which came out on the last day of eligibility for the awards. Perry and Swift, often considered the era’s two leading women in pop, have long been rumored to have a poor relationship but it has rarely spilled into the open.

It’s just that Nicki is getting snubbed for doing the same thing they’re winning awards for.’ But it seems Nicki was having none of it, retweeting a response from another fan which said: ‘Stop using “support all girls” as an excuse to not be critical of racist media that benefits and glorifies you.’ It’s not all bad news for Nicki, who picked up three nominations when they were announced on Tuesday – with Anaconda scoring nods for best female video and best hip-hop video. Swift has said that she wrote the song—with the lines “Now we got problems / and I don’t think we can solve them”—about another pop star whom she accused of undercutting her by hiring people who had been working for her.
