How often does an award show come and go with everyone just accepting the winners and moving on? Never. With every award show, usually comes some drama and hurt feelings, whether it be from artists themselves or fans. I mean, it’s been almost 6 years since Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards saying,

“Yo Taylor, Im really happy for you and I’m gonna let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.”

And we’re not close to forgetting about it.

Last night, Taylor Swift was yet again among some MTV VMA drama. It all started when Nicki Minaj turned to Twitter to get a couple of things off her chest after one of her biggest hits “Anaconda” wasn’t nominated for video of the year for the MTV Video Music Awards. Those nominated were:

Beyoncé, “7/11”
Ed Sheeran, “Thinking Out Loud”
Taylor Swift feat. Kendrick Lamar, “Bad Blood”
Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk”
Kendrick Lamar, “Alright”

Nicki wasn’t wrong for feeling this way at all, the “Anaconda” music video wasn’t some basic cheap budgeted video, but rather creative and definitely talked about. It even broke the video record at the moment, earning 19.6 million views in its first 24 hours.

She continued…

Is Nicki trying to follow in Kanye’s footsteps and interrupt someone’s acceptance speech?

It was only so long before the “Bad Blood” singer took the tweets personal and directly responded to Nicki.

Taylor might have gotten a little too friendly and welcoming though…

However, Nicki didn’t think that Taylor’s stage invitation was going to resolve the double standard.

And neither did the Barbz, which eventually came to Nicki’s defense.

But of course, Nicki wasn’t the only one with a huge fan base in the feud. Team Taylor also had some words for Nicki.

Hmm…Beyoncé and Kendrick were nominated. So, maybe it isn’t a race issue.

Whose side are you on?
