Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, then you’re probably aware that Twitter was on fire yesterday. And it all started with Nicki Minaj.
After “Anaconda” failed to receive a MTV VMA nomination for Video of the Year (despite its undeniable popularity, success, and cultural impact), The Pinkprint rapper took to social media to share her thoughts on the snub. In the midst of Nicki’s tweets, Taylor Swift took them personally and decided to chime in on the matter.

Throughout her career, Nicki has consistently fought for the empowerment of women. And her achievements in the male-dominated rap genre are inspiring to us all.
