As proven by the heated commentary on this morning’s ‘The View,’ Nicki Minaj & Taylor Swift‘s Twitter tussle yesterday is still very much a hot topic.
Indeed, as the two entered a war of words over Minaj, who slammed the MTV VMAs for snubbing her 2014 hit video ‘Anaconda’ with their 2015 nominations, fans and critics immediately started taking sides. Most recently, two of the more headline grabbing commenters have come in the form of fellow chart-topper Katy Perry and journalist Piers Morgan.
Perry, a longtime nemesis of Swift, offered a subtle jab while the outspoken Morgan opted for a more…umm…overt weigh in.
See their statements below and tell us who you agree with:
Perry, in response to Swift:
Morgan on Minaj (source):
“Don’t play the race or skinny cards, Ms Minaj – you’re just a stroppy little piece of work whose video wasn’t as good as Taylor Swift’s. I have every sympathy with Taylor, who did absolutely nothing wrong,” said Morgan. “And I have no sympathy with Nicki Minaj, who emerges as a whiny brat that just doesn’t like losing.”
“Her charges of racism and big-bodyism are frankly laughable when you consider that three of the five nominations for Video of the Year are black artists,” continued Morgan. “And one of them is Beyonce, whose own body is far more aligned to the Minaj school of physical beauty than Taylor Swift’s.”
