20 Times Nicki Minaj Totally Shocked You by Acting Like a Role Model
In case you missed it, a supposed feud erupted between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift.

While those videos were nominated for Best Female Video and Best Hip-Hop Video, the impact “Anaconda” had should have gotten it a Video of the Year nod.
Nicki took to Twitter to make very valid points about the music industry. Then Taylor Swift felt like Nicki was calling her out (which she wasn’t) and tried to make it about her. It was all very uncomfortable. Nicki even checked Taylor and gave her an opportunity to join an important dialogue about the music industry.
