''It takes a big person to do what Taylor did, and everyone sometimes speaks out of turn. I’ve been there...'' Nicki told Lara Spencer of GMA on July 24
No bad bloods no more! Nicki Minaj has confirmed she and Taylor Swift are officially done fighting and are good again.
Minaj appeared on Friday’s 'Good Morning America' as this week’s 'Summer Concert Series' performer. But in addition to performing, the rapper also sat down with Lara Spencer for an interview about the controversy with Swift and the MTV Video Music Awards.
''First of all, I spoke to Taylor Swift yesterday on the phone... She was super, super sweet. She apologized. 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,'' Nicki revealed.
On the VMAs, Nicki said: ''I posted something on my Instagram [showing] the stats of other videos that had been nominated previously, and it just seemed to be a little funny business going on. ‘Anaconda’ just had a huge cultural impact, and on top of that, we broke the Vevo record.''
“So this is actually my third time breaking the Vevo record, and ‘Anaconda,’ therefore, should have been nominated. I do think if it was one of the ‘pop girls,’ they would’ve had many nominations for it. I think I got two nominations for ‘Anaconda,’ for Female and Hip-Hop, but it should’ve been for the Year, and that’s all we were saying'' Minaj added firmly.
Of comparisons to Swift, Minaj said, “I think we just have to have both images for girls. We can’t have only, you know, one type of body being glorified in the media, because it just makes girls even more insecure than we already are.”
Asked about a possible collaboration, Minaj answered, “I’m sure we can. You know why, because it takes a big person to do what Taylor did, and everyone sometimes speaks out of turn. I’ve been there... It was big of her to come out and say that. We spoke for a long time, we were cracking up laughing on the phone, and it’s over, you guys.''
