Nicki Minaj on MTV Video Music Awards: Black Women Are Getting Snubbed.

Nicki Minaj tweeted her frustrations on Tuesday over what the annual crop of MTV Video Music Award nominees says about mainstream music: black women are rarely rewarded for their influence on pop culture.

She prides herself on her support for other women artists, but Taylor Swift lost her cool after she perceived a tweet by Nicki Minaj to be slighting her Bad Blood video.

But it was her comment that “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” that made Swift feel attacked. The rapper and actor, 32, made headlines with the provocative video for her song Anaconda, which featured a lot of booty and Minaj grinding on rapper Drake’s lap.
