Jimmy Kimmel breaks down the VMAs debate using emoji.

Feud squashed, Barbz and Swifties — time to move on. apologized via Twitter on Thursday, July 23, for lashing out against a perceived diss from , and as it turns out, social media wasn’t the only way they mended fences.On Wednesday, Nicki Minaj expressed her frustration with a lack of VMA nominations for her video for “Anaconda,” tweeting that women like herself aren’t as recognized for their efforts in music as “other” women with “slim bodies.” Taylor Swift, who received several nominations for “Bad Blood,” took this as a subtweet and entered the ring, tweeting at Nicki that it was unlike her to “pit women against each other.” Nicki was confused, given that she was talking about a larger systemic issue and not directing any of her tweets toward the artists who did receive nominations. (“Huh?

During a Friday appearance on Good Morning America, Minaj, who made headlines this week when she fumed over her “Anaconda” video being passed over for a Video of the Year VMA nomination, said she and Swift, 25, aired their differences in a phone call after the “Bad Blood” singer’s Twitter mea culpa. “She was super, super sweet and she apologized,” Minaj, 32, confirmed. “She said, ‘Look, I didn’t understand the big picture of what you were saying, but now I get it.’ We’re all good.” The feud is so over, Minaj said, that she’d even entertain the idea of a collaboration with Swift. “I’m sure we can [collaborate], because it takes a big person to do what Taylor did. The “Anaconda” hitmaker shared a screenshot of an article which said “The Truth About Racism in the Music Industry” and wrote she wasn’t angry at the snub. “We are huge trend-setters, not second class citizens that get thrown crumbs… This isn’t anger. If this is all a little difficult to follow, Jimmy Kimmel broke it down on Thursday’s installment of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, concluding, “And then my 14-year-old niece, Allison, exploded.” (Same.) Kimmel did leave out one important entry into the beef arena, however. Camilla Belle, about whom Taylor (allegedly) wrote the song “Better Than Revenge,” tweeted in reply to Katy’s subtweet on Thursday, writing, “Couldn’t have said it better…”

I do think if it was one of the ‘pop girls,’ it would have had many nominations for it,” Minaj told GMA’s Lara Spencer before performing the ABC show’s concert in Central Park. “I got two nominations for ‘Anaconda’ — for Female and Hip Hop — but it should have been for the Year. That’s all.” Minaj further implored the music industry and its artists to build each other up and appreciate their differences. “We just have to have both images for girls.

We can’t only have one type of body being glorified, because it just makes girls even more insecure than we already are,” the voluptuous singer continued. This week’s social media exchange between the women inspired everyone from Ed Sheeran to Bruno Mars to Kim Kardashian to react, but no response was more shocking than that of Katy Perry, who accused frenemy Swift of being someone who “unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman.” (Minaj had favorited Perry’s tweet moments after it was posted, and before replying to Swift’s public apology.)
