Katy Perry Dragged In Nicki Minaj And Taylor Swift Twitter Feud
Katy Perry joins the Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift Twitter feud with a tweet that seems to accuse Swift of ‘capitalizing on the take down of another woman’.
The Dark Horse singer’s tweet comes a day after Minaj complained about being snubbed at the MTV Video Music Award nominations and appeared to take a swipe at Swift’s Bad Blood video, which received nine nominations.
“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” the rapper wrote on Wednesday.
Swift, 25, took the tweet as a personal affront and accused Minaj or pitting women against each other.
Perry seems to have taken a thinly-veiled swipe at the 1989 singer, whose song Bad Blood is widely believed to have been written about the falling out between Perry and Swift.
“Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…,” Perry wrote on Twitter.
In an interview with Rolling Stone last year, Swift admitted the song was about a pop star that stabbed her in the back and was now a ‘straight up enemy’.
“She did something so horrible,” Swift said. “I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business.” “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”
The day after the interview was released, Perry retaliated by tweeting: “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing”. Regina George is the meanest girl in the movie Mean Girls.
Nicki Minaj denied her tweet had been aimed at Swift, and saying that she was simply sick of a lack of recognition for black female artists who influenced pop culture.
Minaj’s Anaconda video was nominated for three awards compared to Swift’s nine.
Swift offered an olive branch of sorts after the argument, saying Minaj could join her on stage should she win any awards.
The argument came on the same day that Minaj’s boyfriend, Meek Mill, accused Take Care rapper Drake of using a ghostwriter.
