Katy Perry & Piers Morgan Weigh In On Nicki Minaj/Taylor Swift Battle

Published: Wednesday 22nd Jul 2015 by Rashad

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:

tgj katy perry tweet nicki minaj taylor 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.”

    Both (Katy Perry and Piers Morgan) are right.

    • Iamdiego July 22, 2015

      That’s what I’m thinking too. It’s no secret that Taylor is no angel, but Nicki’s approach was wrong. She came off like a hater but didn’t give a f*** about the BET awards that she gets every YR.

      I’m sorry. Call me and idiot, but I simply couldn’t understand Katy’s tweet. Could someone reword it for me? I’ve read it 5 times and I still don’t get it.

      • BEY>RIH July 22, 2015

        She’s basically sayin Taylor is a hypocrite because bad blood’s video was a sneak diss to Katy and pit down women against each other…

  2. Kayla C July 22, 2015

    Piers told NO LIES

  3. Slay_Hive July 22, 2015

    I really hope Nicki gets blackballed from this.

  4. Chrisette Michele Stan July 22, 2015

    Nicki just needs to go away.

  5. Ozzy July 22, 2015

    All these big pop girls going at it lmaoooo. Twitter has been a MESS for the last 24 hours.

  6. Keri Qween July 22, 2015

    Katy Perry was stanning for bbhmm too yasss

    • RiC July 22, 2015

      Im not a Rihanna fan but Rih was definitely snubbed as well. Im surprised she hasn’t been on twitter running her mouth too. Hopefully she’ll be next to throw shade!!

  7. SMH July 22, 2015

    Sigh. This whole industry has turned into a hot ratchet mess. *Waits for Janet’s tour to start

  8. Islandboi80 July 22, 2015

    yawl fans are dumb! What Nicki said was right! They throwing those awards at Taylor when she is s corn ball that’s so boring

    • AmbeRussell July 22, 2015

      but nicki shouldnt have called taylor out nor expect she was deserving of the award. she is upset bc her 2014 version of sarah baartman video did not get the nomination she wanted. but she has 3 other awards to hope the fans vote for. beyonce won wearing a leotard, rihanna won wearing silver paint. ANYYWAYS, she is mad her objectification of her own and the woman body in general did not get her a voty nomination?she did what the white man wanted her to do, while lauryn won the award nicki is crying about, talking about females like nicki. “showing off your ass bc you’re think it is a trend” -l.h.

  9. As July 22, 2015

    Nicki body is not even natural to be making this argument! And Nicki has a track record for indirectly taking jabs at other female artists, she ain’t fooling nobody. Also she is known for and has a track record of being two faced to people who have supported her career, so this is no surprise to Taylor Swift who has supported minij

    • BOOBIE July 22, 2015

      Everything you said has nothing to do with her argument with the VMAs. You’re doing EXACTLY what she said…purposely overlooking her argument on the prejudice of the music/entertainment industry and downplaying the issues that exist.

      • As July 22, 2015

        Nicki quotes …”I’m not looking at you, I’m looking past you”. … Exactly Boobie

      • Slayty Perry (Emmy nominated VEVO Queen) July 22, 2015

        Her argument had nothing to do with prejudices in the industry though, she slapped that on to cover her bruised ego

  10. BOOBIE July 22, 2015


  11. Islandboi80 July 22, 2015

    Nicki should be back balled??????? People in the world are so dumb! So you would want yourself to be black balled for speaking your mind? Everyone has the right to there own f****** opinion and shouldn’t be ridiculed for it

  12. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! July 22, 2015

    She tweeted “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year”
    And then she is acting like it wasn’t aimed at Taylor swift, when taylor swifts video just happens to have a lot skinny models in… And then try’s to says it not her about but racism…

    • Keri Qween July 22, 2015

      It was definitely aimed at Taylor. People conveniently forget that tweet. But plastic minaj is known for throwing shade and then acting like she didnt

      • Molly July 22, 2015

        I agree with you and the Taylor fan

    • BOOBIE July 22, 2015

      No, open your mind…that tweet was most likely in REFERENCE to Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood video. But it wasn’t ABOUT Taylor. Taylor didn’t nominate herself you morons

    • Slayty Perry (Emmy nominated VEVO Queen) July 22, 2015

      Have you heard that Katy is the first artist to have two videos reach 1 billion views? Poor Taywh*re is always playing catch up ????

      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! July 23, 2015

        Did you know that blank space has overtook dark horse in views? And will be the second most viewed video ever on YouTube after Gangnam style soon? It’s catching Justin biebers baby everyday !

  13. Slay_Hive July 22, 2015

    To be honest, I bet Nicki and Taylor were PAID to engage in this nonsense to deflect media and public attention from the Sandra Bland murder.

    • BOOBIE July 22, 2015


      • bash July 23, 2015

        Especially since Nicki just posted about the murder…

  16. Rihup July 22, 2015

    These girls are a mess LOL. Anyway I need B6 and R8 to come slay me right about now.

  17. BOOBIE July 22, 2015

    Ridiculous how many people are overlooking what Nicki is saying. Piers Morgans needs to keep his mouth shut because he is KNOWN worldwide as an ignorant racist. Nicki’s argument wasn’t about BLACK people not being nominated. It was about BLACK BEAUTY STANDARDS not being recognized for their contributions. Beyonce is as popular and world reknowned as she is because she appeals to the WHITE MASSES just as much as she appeals to the BLACK MASSES. Nicki is not the same. She has curves that are far different than Beyonce’s. Everytime Nicki does something slightly sexual, the attention focuses off of her talent and more on her body. That doesn’t happen with Beyonce.

    • Slay_Hive July 22, 2015

      She WANTS the attention on her body! The Anaconda video was nothing but ass shaking. It doesn’t deserve a nomination! Her argument would be valid if 3/5 nominated weren’t black! Shut up ugly

      • BOOBIE July 22, 2015

        Let me drag this ho real quick…I suggest you do your research on Nicki’s overall goal with her career before you assume what she wants and deserves. At her own admission, a lot of the sexual ‘ass shaking’ stuff she does is her own unique way of breaking down barriers between men and women. It’s a way of purposely exploiting the strengths of her body and using it as a weapon against the typical standards of the music industry. When Miley did it a couple years back, she not only got nominated for shaking her ‘ass’ and swinging on balls while naked, she WON. Had it been Nicki, doing the same thing, same voice, same video, it would’ve been overlooked or limited to “Best Hip-Hop Video”.

      • Slay_Hive July 22, 2015

        Biitch I am sick of u desperate hoess. Create your own name and seethe under it!

      • Slayty Perry (Emmy nominated VEVO Queen) July 22, 2015

        Miley won because her video had an impact that lasted longer than 2 weeks. Nicki’s video was trash and she has no valid argument, deal with it

    • LTM July 22, 2015

      Lol what? Beyonce has curves just like Nicki. The only difference is Beyonce’s are natural while Nicki’s are fake. The reason the focus is drawn from her talent to her image is that she HAS NO TALENT. Lol, Barbz are so delusional and stupid, it’s ridiculous. Nicki didn’t get nominated like she felt she deserves so she started complaining but realized she looked like a whiny brat so she tried to make it a social issue. How did she go from body image to race to Spotify and Tidal? She was grasping for a social issue to use as a shield and it failed. Piers clocked her for it.

      • BOOBIE July 22, 2015

        You’re stupid if you think Beyonce has curves like Nicki Minaj. Beyonce has curves more along the lines of Iggy Azalea. Nicki went from body image to race issues because Taylor Swift involved herself and people like Ryan Seacrest and Piers Morgan defended Taylor Swift without fully understanding her message. Piers didn’t clock her, he made himself look like a sexist by calling her out for voicing her opinions and bringing up irrelevant things like Nicki not being able to meet his son years ago.

      • LTM July 22, 2015

        Lol what??? Surely you didn’t try to compare Beyonce’s body to Iggy’s! Iggy is tall and thin with a small waist and big a***, basically Tayloose minus the a*** part. On a spectrum between Nicki and Iggy, Bey is most definitely closer to Nicki. Plenty of people have argued Bey is thick (though I disagree). No one would argue the same for Iggy. She was bringing up race and body issues before Tayloose got involved, which is why Tayloose got involved lol! Sit down

  18. LB July 22, 2015

    SCREAMING AT Payola Perry reading Taylor Swift, this whole situation is a f****** mess

  19. Molly July 22, 2015

    Yall act like Nicki Minaj was fighting for other black artist when she was just fighting for herself using the race card as a shield.

    • Rihup July 22, 2015

      Exactly girl! She was only looking out for herself.

  20. Molly July 22, 2015

    Katy is a kii I really hope Taylor responds.

  21. LB July 22, 2015

    SCREAMING….Black twitter is going off on Piers Morgan right now, I LIVE….WHAT A F****** MESS

  22. Slay_Hive July 22, 2015

    I CAN’T! First off, I appreciate Katy Perry for speaking out on Taylor Swift’s hypocritical ass rant! This is the same biitch that has gained fame for exposing her past relationships with people in her music. She is an evil little white devil whoore and the more fame & success she receives, the more arrogant she becomes. Lastly, I just can’t with Piers Morgan racist ass taking Taylor’s side and having sympathy for her??!! She inserted herself into an argument that had nothing to do with her pancake ass toothpick shaped self. This is exactly what Nicki Minaj was talking about. The american girl next door( undercover industry whoore and cockkk sucker) is made to been seen as the angel. While the black girl who was only expressing her truth and frustrations is made to be the bad guy. I’m pissed rn!????????????????????????

    Three black nominees? Pierce, I know you were dumb, but not that dumb.

    Pierce Morgan, Bruno Mars is not, nor did he ever self identity, as black. Being white does not give you privilege to mistake Filippino and Puerto-Rican for black.

    All these celebs wars!!! I love it!
    – Jhene Geico got dragged by everyone
    – Nicki n everybody vs Taylor Spit
    – Loudmouth Mill vs Drake
    and not Chris celebrating as if his house didn’t get robbed with his aunty getting locked up in the closet smh.
    Where is Azealia Banks when this twitter war fest is happening?
    Nobody will EVER top Rihanna’s dragfest on twitter though. I remember the Rihanna vs Ciara twitter feud. We all know who won that and spoke things in existence lol.

    • JLo July 22, 2015

      That was classic, Rihanna dragged Ciara to the depths.

  28. LTM July 22, 2015

    Thank God Katy pointed out what so many fakes in Hollywood wont: Taylor is a fake feminist and a two-faced hypocrite. It’s hilarious how the same woman who told Tina Fey and Amy Poehler there is a special place in hell for women who hate on each other would go and write a diss song about a woman for a cheap and quick (it only lasted one week lol) #1. Katy clocked her fake @ss and I couldn’t be happier. The internet has already caught on and turned against her, it’s only a matter of time for the media and general public turn too. I also love that she showed RiRi love, I miss their friendship. I guess not everyone feels the need to parade their friendship around for coverage like Tayloose.

    • JLo July 22, 2015

      You just passed the lie detector test. No lies were told what so ever.

    • Slayty Perry (Emmy nominated VEVO Queen) July 22, 2015


    • ran July 24, 2015

      Katy is just about as fake as Taylor. She has thrown shade at Mariah and other woman. So did you ever think did she do to make Taylor even write a song about her?

  29. LTM July 22, 2015

    As for Piers Morgan, he spoke nothing but the truth. Black Twitter is upset because it is the painful truth and it’s coming from a white man. I’m disgusted that people are supporting Nicki taking real social issues in this country and using them for her own agenda. It’s not about the VMAs being racist and not giving black artist credit. It’s not about “certain body types” being celebrated over others. It’s about a whining insecure b*tch being upset that her subpar desperate attempt to have an impact was ignored. If Nicki truly cared about body shaming in the media then she wouldn’t have been favoriting tweets of her fans body shaming others who called her out. Nicki is just as fake and two-faced as Tayloose. Even worse that she tried to masquerade her ego trip behind social issues.

    • LB July 22, 2015

      B****, you know what, you better spill that good tea cause I’m up here drinking it all up

    Nicki – scalped by Piers

    What virus is doing around twitter right now because this tea can’t be coming from these celebs phones LMAO

    All this over a f***** moonman I can see if it was a grammy the Vmas been a joke for years now!

    I’m here for the Taylor dragging that bish head was getting to big!

    • July 22, 2015

      you can’t be this dense,you are being sarcastic right.

  33. Mark111 July 22, 2015

    Nicki’s first tweet wasn’t about Taylor as much as her last year’s BET Awards speech wasn’t about Iggy. Saying No Shade doesn’t delete the shade. Lil Kim told us about her and her ways years ago. She was dissing Kim on songs for years, but act like she wasn’t. I told y’all, the end of Icky is here.

  34. Mark111 July 22, 2015

    Yes Nicki does talk about events, but this one was nothing but being a sore loser. She did the same thing, the SAME thing when the Mariah fight happened. “The media is making me look like that angry rapper”, she’s the female Chris Brown, always playing the poor me card.

    • excuses July 22, 2015

      that’s nice sis, bt don’t you claim not to be a f** and dl, yet you come in her and shade female artists for no reason? r we making you look like a f** or r u doing it yourself?

      • Mark111 July 22, 2015

        I thought that word was offensive. Or are you not a gay guy, but a bitter woman that’s mad at the world?

    I lowkey love Katy! Speak that truth sis! I respect Taylor and what she has accomplished but we all know that nice girl thing is an act

  36. Slayty Perry (Emmy nominated VEVO Queen) July 22, 2015

    YASSS!! Katy clocked that white she-devil! Like how are you gonna try the feminist card when you just released Bad Blood? Piers spilled what I said yesterday. Nicki was upset because she tried to have an impact like Miley but it failed. The reason it worked for Miley and not Nicki is because she is irrelevant and fading quick. Her ego was hurt so she slapped on some social justice topics to get Social Justice Twitter/Black Twitter to back her bitter rant and it failed. Nicki you’re a flop, deal with.

    • Ciara=Slay July 22, 2015

  40. Rosie July 22, 2015

    All I have to say is f******
    L M F A O
    at Onika acting like her rant wasn’t Taylor shade when she was favoriting Taylor shade on Twitter while ranting. Then the delusional ass h** had the nerve to backtrack and bring up SJW bait for no reason when Taylor called her out. The ONLY reason Taylor is getting dragged by the mainstream media is because Onika stole some ugly terms like “white media”/”white feminism” from Tumblr, but if you go to the comments section of many of these sites such as CNN & Daily Mail a good majority of the REAL GP (not wannabe SJWs on Twitter) see right through her b*******.
    Fortunately the race card (gah I hate using that ugly white conservative term) won’t get Onika’s album to sell more than 300K outside of the US because frankly, no one outside of the US gives a s*** about her anymore, whereas Taylor isn’t even at her peak worldwide.

    • BOOBIE July 22, 2015

      Dry ho, when it comes to Nicki or anyone else besides your fave your foolish a$$ is always one-sided. No one in here takes you seriously especially when you stan for that depressed crooked nose giant Lana

      • Rosie July 22, 2015

        And what the f*** does Lana have to do with Onika being a bothered b**** who only cares about social issues when they’re against HER? Born To Die outsold Onika’s three albums combined and Ultraviolence outsold The Pinkshįt by 700K worldwide with no promo, hits, or mainstream pandering (such as filler EDM/pop hits)
        I’m sure she’s unbothered, unlike Onika who can’t even sell out the same venues Lana did effortlessly without bribing on Groupon, relying on softcore pr0n, and crying “RACISME!!” on Twitter so these broke ass SJ liberal arts majors can go to Target and spend $15 on her CD.

  41. xedos July 22, 2015

    white women always call for unity when it benefits them,but they’re no where when women of color need support.

  42. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 23, 2015

    I’m black but Onika is using the race card for her own benefit & its cliché now. Piers is right, you didn’t get nominated get over it. This is why I love Beyoncé even tho she deserved to win the AOTY grammy, she wasn’t bratty about it & she didn’t throw any race card even if she did she did it privately with her fam & friends my point Nicki needs to stfu & do a better video next time. When she was winning these pop awards she didn’t throw the race card girl bye.

  43. Xtina = The voice of this generation July 23, 2015

    The Only person that can rival Taylor Swift is Miley Cyrus. She can have taylor’s success if she wants too.

  44. Barb-wire July 23, 2015

    Kunty better clock Basic Swift!!! They’re both untalented white trashes but at least Payola Perry speaks the truth from time to time.

  45. Pac-Man July 23, 2015

    Honestly Katy is right and Morgan was completely out of line. Not one time did Nicki make reference to anyone but Taylor decided to speak and then the media began to back her up as if she were right. Taylor needs to sit down somewhere and pick a battle worth fighting.

  46. Christina Aguilera July 23, 2015
