Cat Fight! Taylor Swift And Nicki Minaj Clash On Twitter.

MTV released its nominations for the video of the year on Tuesday, and while two of her videos were nominated for best female video and best hip-hop video, Minaj wasn’t nominated for video of the year. (RELATED: MTV’s New Documentary Wants White People To Feel Bad For Being White) She took to Twitter to voice her disapproval because she said that although “black women influence pop culture so much” the are “rarely” rewarded for it. Barack Obama shifted from baseball to football to analogize the limitations of meeting his goals as president during an appearance on “The Daily Show” Tuesday. “You’re always going to fall short, because if you’re hitting your marks, that means you didn’t set them high enough,” Obama said. “We don’t score a touchdown every time, but we move the ball forward.” Last year, the president, a sports fan, used the national pastime to describe his approach to global issues as a pursuit of incremental progress. “You hit singles, you hit doubles; every once in a while we may be able to hit a home run,” Obama said at last year’s news conference, in what’s since been dubbed the “Obama doctrine.” As Stewart prepares for his final episode on Aug. 6, he got one final opportunity to quiz the president and poke a little fun at his expense. When the “other” girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination.
