As the hype surrounding the MTV VMA nominations came to a close, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to point out "women with very slim bodies" are generally nominated in the category. Taylor Swift took it as a personal jab (she's the only other woman nominated in the category this year and is a "slim" person), and answered back. In case you missed it, the entire feud has been carefully explained here. Of course, when social media beef happens between two musicians, other celebrities grow eager to give their two cents.

Kim Kardashian

The reality princess wasn't even trying to get in on the Twitter feud, she was just uploading a never-ending stream of photos from her Vogue Spain feature. She originally captioned this photo, "Imma let you finish but..."

She soon realized that Nicki had threatened to come up on stage to accept the award she wasn't nominated for, much like that time Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift's "Music Video of the Year" award speech saying "Imma let you finish but..." Even Kim isn't immune to bad timing and she made sure to clear it all up.

Bruno Mars

Mr. Mars wasn't being coy about this. He wants in, and he wants in now. He even dragged Ed Sheeran into it, who seemed less eager to participate.

Aaron Paul

The Breaking Bad star knows that the best way to repair this mess is with breakfast food. Smart man.

Perez Hilton

Perez made himself the target of some hateful comments and tweets from the Beyhive. It is slightly confusing, since Hilton turns it into Bey vs. Rihanna for no apparent reason.

Katy Perry

Your eyes aren't mistaken, Taylor Swift's rumored arch-nemesis has officially gotten in on the VMA nominee beef. Shit just got real.
