Nicki Minaj: 'Taylor Swift called me to apologise for VMAs feud'

Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift buried the hatchet over their MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) feud in a lengthy phone call on Thursday (23Jul15).

The pop stars became embroiled in a row on Twitter.com this week (beg20Jul15) after the VMA nominations were announced and Minaj took issue with her Anaconda promo being missed from the Video of the Year list.


She blamed the snub on her body type, insisting only videos which celebrate "women with very slim bodies" get awards, and Swift believed the message was a swipe at her so she lashed out at the Starships hitmaker.


However, Swift apologised to Minaj on social media on Thursday (23Jul15), admitting, "I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke" and the rapper has now revealed she also received a phone call from Swift to settle the issue.


During an appearance on breakfast show Good Morning America on Friday, she says, "I spoke to Taylor Swift yesterday on the phone. She was super, super sweet and she apologised. She said, 'Look, you know I didn't understand the big picture of what you were saying, but now I get it', so we're all good.


"It takes a big person to do what Taylor did and everyone sometimes speaks out of turn, I've been there, sometimes we do things we don't think right away or we don't investigate and then we just talk so it was big of her to come out and say that. So yes, we spoke for a long time, we were cracking up laughing on the phone. It's over... and I love you guys (fans) for supporting me!"
