After plenty of celebrities chose to get involved in the Taylor Swift vs. Nicki Minaj Twitter Beef of 2015, the 25-year-old pop star issued a very public social media apology. Swift wrote, "I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki." Minaj has yet to accept and respond to Swift's explanation, but it should only be a matter of time.

Update: Nicki Minaj has responded to Taylor's tweet with a heartfelt, "That means so much."

The rapper also sent a single emoji to Katy Perry. Take from it what you will.

And now we can all stop staring at Twitter.
