Swift, Minaj tweet over rapper’s MTV Video Music Awards snub.

Pop singer Taylor Swift, British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, R&B singer Beyonce, and DJ-producer Mark Ronson lead the nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards, the cable network said on Tuesday.The host of the Los Angeles gala will be singer Miley Cyrus, who at the 2013 awards stripped down to a flesh-coloured bikini and twerked with Robin Thicke – adding to her notoriety but also bringing the bottom-thrusting dance move into the mainstream.

Swift is nominated for nine moonmen, including video of the year for “Bad Blood,” starring Selena Gomez, Lena Dunham and more of the pop star’s famous friends. Minaj tweeted multiple times that she didn’t understand why her rump-shaking video for “Anaconda” wasn’t up for the top award when MTV announced the nominees Tuesday. Also in the running in two categories – Best Female Video and Best Pop Video – is Blank Space, which depicts Swift as a romantic villain feuding with a lover at a mansion. She wrote in one tweet: “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.” She also tweeted, “When the ‘other’ girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination.” “I’ve done nothing but love & support you,” she tweeted to Minaj. “It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. The event has made headlines in recent years for singer Miley Cyrus’ provocative “twerk” performance with a foam finger in 2013, and hip-hop artist Kanye West’s interruption of Swift’s 2009 acceptance speech.

Cyrus announced her participation with a picture on social media that showed her disguised as an amphibian-like alien, with a sign that read “MTV Won’t Let Me Perform.” Cyrus tweeted on Monday that she will host this year’s awards, showing pictures of her with placards saying: “MTV won’t let me perform” and “So I’m hosting this year’s VMAs.”
