NEW YORK (AP) — Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj traded words on Twitter after the rapper said she was upset she didn’t earn a nomination for video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Minaj tweeted multiple times that she didn’t understand why her rump-shaking video for “Anaconda” wasn’t up for the top award when MTV announced the nominees Tuesday.

She wrote in one tweet:

Minaj did not mention specific artists in her tweets.

Swift, who’s “Bad Blood” is nominated for video of the year, is the top VMA contender with nine nominations.

Nominees for video of the year include Beyonce’s “7/11,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright,” Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud” and Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk.”

Swift, feeling the pressure, responded.

Minaj said she never mentioned Swift in her tweets.

“Anaconda,” released a year ago, has 488 million views on YouTube. It earned VMA nominations for best female video and hip-hop video. Minaj is also up for best collaboration for “Bang Bang” with Ariana Grande and Jessie J.

Swift’s nominations for “Bad Blood” include best collaboration, direction, editing, visual effects, art direction and cinematography. Her other hit, “Blank Space,” which boasts 1 billion views on YouTube, is nominated for best female video and pop video.

“Bad Blood,” the action-packed clip that starred Lena Dunham, Selena Gomez and Lamar, has 360 million views on YouTube.

Miley Cyrus will host the 2015 VMAs, which will air live Aug. 30 from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

  1. Nicki is trippin… MTV has nominated and given awards to Beyonce.. I dont know why Nicki thinks Anaconda video took skill and creativity to create it! All she did was bend over and shake her azzz… and it wasnt an original beat! Shes fake and crazy as hell!

    I like both of these ladies as artists. I’ve seen anaconda and to me it’s just a vid about fun and girls playing around. The vid has no message but it’s cute. I have not seen bad blood but I like the song an saw a clip. I wish Taylor would of had women of diff races in the clip I saw but the women were all white. As for nicki saying it reps larger women… I don’t see how. She was the thickest one in the vid and she ain’t natural! I’m a curvy female and I don’t agree with her behavior! She should of kept silent on this one. No one understood her vid it was just something for lil boys to masterbaute to. Sorry nicki! Only like two lines from the song rep big girls. The rest I don’t get lol
