Nicki called attention to the way black women are depicted in the media, an intersectional feminist perspective, with her lamentation tweets on Tuesday, writing: “I’m not always confident”.
A hot mess of a hot take on the Nicki Minaj/Taylor Swift Twitter situation comes from T-Swift BFF Ed Sheeran, whose PR team is presumably all drinking/crying in a bathroom somewhere this morning because yikes.
I just thought that caption was flawless for that pic! Swift, 25, thought Minaj was attacking her, but has since apologized for her misunderstanding. “I’m sorry, Nicki”, the 25-year-old tweeted Thursday morning.
“In response to that tweet, Swift replied, “@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you.
The model’s sister, Gigi Hadid, hinted at the relationship when she posted a picture of her presenting The Weeknd with Artist of the Year award at the 2015 Much Music Video Awards, in which she tellingly captioned it “Congrats my brother”.

Other songs have extolled fulsome behinds – notably 1992’s “Baby Got Back” by Sir Mix-a-Lot, with its refrain “I like big butts and I can not lie” – but the women of “Anaconda” twerk their bottoms with nary a man in sight.
Noting that neither her “Anaconda” or “Feeling Myself” videos had made it to this category, or the Best Choreography list for that matter, Minaj tweeted “Hey MTV, thank you for my nominations”.
Controversy also erupted over the latest Grammys, where white Australian rapper Iggy Azalea was nominated for four awards, although she went home empty-handed. In that case, Minaj was obviously talking about Video of the Year nominee Taylor Swift. Camilla Belle just got a little revenge on Taylor Swift by supporting Katy Perry.
He now says, “I was making a point about body image and not race, whilst sticking up for a mate, I definitely said it wrong though, apologies”.
But while the two girls have now put the drama to bed, Hopkins resurrected the row in her The Sun column today (July 24).
