Nicki Minaj Officially Puts an End to Her Twitter Feud with Swift: 'It Takes a Big Person to Do What Taylor Did'

There's no hint of "Bad Blood" between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift.

The rapper, 32, made an appearance on Good Morning America on Friday to perform and officially put an end to her Twitter "feud" with Swift, 25.

The "Style" singer had already publicly apologized to Minaj on Thursday after she took offense to a Tweet by the rapper that complained that "Anaconda" wasn't nominated for video of the year at the MTV Video Music Awards because it didn't feature enough women "with very slim bodies." (Swift's celebrity-studded "Bad Blood" was nominated, as was Beyoncé's "7/11," Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud," Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson's "Uptown Funk" and Kendrick Lamar's "Alright.")



After the pair had exchanged tense words on Tuesday (and stars like Katy Perry, Camilla Belle, Aaron Paul and Sheeran weighed in), Swift said that she had "missed the point" of Minaj's original complaints. Minaj quickly accepted her apology, saying that "everyone makes mistakes."

During her GMA appearance, Minaj revealed that she had spoken to Swift on the phone on Thursday and said that they are "all good."

"She was super, super sweet and she apologized," the rapper said. "She said, 'You know, look, I didn't understand the big picture of what you were saying. But now I get it.' So we're all good."

Minaj also said that she would be open to collaborating with Swift in the future.

"I'm sure we can. You know why? Because it takes a big person to do what Taylor did. Everyone sometimes speaks out of turn. I've been there. Sometimes we do things and we don't think right away. We don't investigate and then we just talk. It was big of her to come out and say that. So yes, we spoke for a long time. We were cracking up laughing on the phone. It's over, you guys."

While Minaj's social media scuffle with Swift is over, she isn't backing down about her original criticism of the VMAs and the type of videos that get nominated.



" 'Anaconda' had such a huge cultural impact, and on top of that, we broke the Vevo record," she said. "This is actually my third time breaking the Vevo record. 'Anaconda' therefore should have been nominated. I do think if it was one of the pop girls, they would have had many nominations for it."

As for her "slim bodies" comment, Minaj said she thinks there is room for more representations of the female form in the media.

"I think that we just have to have both images for girls. We can't have only one type of body being glorified in the media because it just makes girls even more insecure than we already [are]."
