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.
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.
Wait wait I'm in Paris it's the middle of the night & I'm posting my Vogue Spain pics not having a clue what's going on in the music world— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) July 21, 2015
I'm not trying to shade anyone! That's not my style! I just thought that caption was perfect for that pic! Changing the caption now! #ironic— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) July 21, 2015
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.
@BrunoMars any way we do dis you gon' come up short— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) July 22, 2015
That Cut deep..U always know how to sheer me to the core. I can't believe we're Sheeran this in public. How dare u! https://t.co/fdYOVnlScF— Bruno Mars (@BrunoMars) July 22, 2015
The Breaking Bad star knows that the best way to repair this mess is with breakfast food. Smart man.
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.
Since the Beyhive is coming for me, I will remind them I think Rihanna has a better catalogue of songs. She's got more music I love! xoxo— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
And I love Beyonce! She's amazingly talented and a peerless live performer!— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
Also, if Beyonce could stop taking publishing credit from songs she didn't really write, that'd be solid! Rihanna don't pull that shit!— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate Baby I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake Shake it off. Shake it off!— Perez Hilton (@PerezHilton) July 22, 2015
Your eyes aren't mistaken, Taylor Swift's rumored arch-nemesis has officially gotten in on the VMA nominee beef. Shit just got real.
Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman...— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 22, 2015
