However, addressing the exclusion of her Beyonce collaboration for "Feeling Myself," Nicki continued, "Did Feeling Myself miss the deadline or...?"
This tweet fired up many of Nicki's supporters, and after retweeting several of their sentiments on the snub, she added, "If I was a different 'kind' of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. "
Then, Nicki suggested that body shaming might have something to do with why "Anaconda" didn't get a Video of the Year nom, and it was on.
Which is when Taylor Swift got in on the conversation, tweeting in response, "I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.."
Nicki subsequently wrote Taylor back, "U must not be reading my tweets. Didn't say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this."
"I'm not always confident. Just tired," Nicki replied to a supporter. "Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it."
Following the initial misunderstanding, Taylor threw her support behind Nicki, tweeting, "If I win, please come up with me!! You're invited to any stage I'm ever on."
Meanwhile, Nicki called out media outlets reporting that her comments were in any way directed at Taylor, writing, "Nothing I said had to do with Taylor. So what jabs? White media and their tactics. So sad. That's what they want."
"I'm so glad u guys get to see how this stuff works," Nicki added. "Taylor took her music off spotify and was applauded. We launched Tidal & were dragged."
