    Well that’s good. Apologizing when you’re wrong shows great maturity. Good on you Taylor

    • You tried July 23, 2015

      The weakest sh** I seen all day! The apology was mature but the whole situation was stupid point blank and the period! It’s like get over ur self HOW UNGRATEFUL of Nicki to wine over an award when she’s out of poverty RICH EATING GOOD WITHOUT FINANCIAL WORRY! She’s always praised for being the so called “Best” in her lane ! Come on these celebs need to appreciate the life their fortunately are living

      • Rasta July 23, 2015

        It’s deeper than that.

  2. Mark111 /.\ July 23, 2015

    A two whole days later. But at least she owned up to it. Nicki is still sh1t tho.

    • TRUTH SERUM July 23, 2015

      Suck it mark!!!!!

  3. Hotmama July 23, 2015

    I respect Taylor for recognizing what Nicki was trying to convey! Kudos to Taylor!

  4. Teflon Boy July 23, 2015

    I’m sorry but Minaj was totally off base. I’m one of the first to call out racism and racial preference within the music industry but Nicki Minaj and all the bufoonery requires an arena of seats for her comments. Especially, when there are more pressing concerns for African Americans that she remains silent about. All Minaj cares about are that her coins remain stacked and her over-inflated buttocks remain omnipresent.

    • BOOBIE July 23, 2015

      Nicki Minaj has voiced her opinions over many issues in the African American communities such as Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner, Mike Brown, even when her cousin was killed a couple years back. Stop making it as if Nicki made a big deal about everything for her own good when she’s been fighting for justice for years whether you choose to notice it or not. She was very proud of her videos and was disappointed that they didnt receive the recognition she thought they should’ve.

  5. truthtea July 23, 2015

    You’re only sorry because Taylor called you out on your hypocritical bullsh*t and you had no good response to her! Sit down Taylor!

  6. BOOBIE July 23, 2015

    She had a whole two days to think about what Nicki was saying and realized she was in the wrong for involving herself in such a way. But she didn’t have to issue an apology over Twitter, she and Nicki could’ve spoken about it over the phone or through agents. Taylor is very smart for posting it on Twitter for everyone to see as it makes her look better. She knows how to play the game.

  7. truthtea July 23, 2015

    You’re only sorry because Katy called you out on your hypocrticial bullsh*t and you have no good response back! Sit down Taylor!

    • Brandy = Queen/King B July 23, 2015

      Nobody is worried about Katy. Stay pressed.

      • RiC July 23, 2015

        Nobody has been worried about Brandy for 15 years. Stay pressed

  8. Kerimel July 23, 2015

    All the thots are soaking over David the barb and I can’t even deal with the thirstiness, he’s cute but show some decorum ladies. Even Ozriah was all over him on twitter.

  9. MUSICHEAD July 23, 2015

    They were both wrong. Let’s move on.

  10. Keri Qween July 23, 2015

    She shouldn’t have. Nicki is pure trash and she was being bitter because she can’t win anything but EBT awards. No Grammy’s, no platinum album this era just a complete flopping plastic b**** and that’s all I have.

    • TRUTH SERUM July 23, 2015

      Based on your logic, Keri should be the second coming of satan. She hasn’t accomplished 1/8 of what minaj has. Bitter fave = bitter stans.

    • R8LATE July 23, 2015

      Listen.. I LOVE Keri Hilson. But what you will NOT do is shade Nicki as if Keri has accomplished anything close to what Nicki has. Her two new singles were leaked and didn’t even make a splash.

      Keri only has 2 Bet Awards, A Soul Train Award and a NAACP Image Award (which is cute) BUT.. NONE of her albums are Platinum. and she’s damn near blacklisted.

      Taylor owed Nicki that apology cause she missed a gigantic point, which she realized.

  11. blue July 23, 2015

    i guess you cant come out looking like a saint if you apologies over the phone

    • Carlitos July 23, 2015

      Apologize / apologise*

  12. Credits July 23, 2015

    I don’t know, Taylor comes off as someone who could end someone’s career on the low…

  13. Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015

    She shouldn’t have to apologize, girls are just jealous of her success, they think that a basic white girl like Swift don’t deserve the special treatment, a privilege that i don’t see but oh well, 25336 years later, Martin L. King, Michael Jackson, Oprah, Obama, 2015, still complaining.
    Now playing: I can’t Get No Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones.

    • SMH July 23, 2015

      Spoken like a typical white person blind to their own b******* and pointing fingers at everybody else and crying victim when you get called on it.

      • Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015

        blind to their own b******* and pointing fingers at everybody else and crying victim when you get called on it.

        The irony.

      • TRUTH SERUM July 23, 2015

        Not only are you a racist your logic is flawed. I won’t waste my time trying to explain it because I’m sure you think your less than average intelligence is superior. Carry on dumb dead blond. The irony is, you troll a site that supports music that you think is inferior B hat you prefer.. Obsessed much! Delusions of grandeur. Bumping En Vogues ” free your mind and the rest will follow”

    • blue July 23, 2015

      never saw it before but you do come off as a little racists. why you always got to side with the white person?

      nicki was wrong to come for taylor and a many people have called her out for it, in fact she has been painted the villain in this twitter spat, it wasnt until katy that people actually started to question the hypocrisy in taylor’s reply.

      and taylor’s inviting nicki up on stage if she wins was a disgusting show of superiority

      • Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015

        Welcome to the “He’s racist club”, hope you have fun with the rest of my fans.

    • Ciara=Slay July 23, 2015

      Spoken like a true dumb ass. Now go commence that KKK meeting.

    • coolness July 23, 2015

      You ARE clearly a BIGOT and thinks that because Martin died a prolific activist, America’s president is Black, Oprah is one of the world’d richest people, Michael Jackson is regarded the greatest entertainer of all time racism has all of a sudden disappeared. Get over yourselves and stop spewing ignorance.

    • R8LATE July 23, 2015

      lol .. just commit that suicide. no one will miss u

    • OMG Logic!!! July 23, 2015

      Don’t let these below average IQ stans get to you Blonde. Being fair and unbiased means not kissing the a55 of every Black person purely to avoid being called a racist. I will always call out the person in the wrong. It doesn’t matter if that person is Black 6/10 times and I come off looking “bigoted.”

      • Ciara=Slay July 23, 2015

        @ Omg Logic, describing yourself in nut shell, nice. You along with that coked up dimwit definitely have a combined iq of 20, keep ranting and raving.

  14. Dossome July 23, 2015

    After “inviting Nicki to any stage she’s on” in the most condescending manner…K Taylor.Nicki raised the right issues on the wrong forum,Taylor was being a brat ultimately making both of them stupid

  15. Molly July 23, 2015

    Why apologize when she was clearly throwing shots at you? I guess since Nicki played the race card she automatically wins. Even tho we never seen Nicki speak on black issue, police brutality against blacks, the sandra bland situation etc. But when a big booty black girl doesn’t get nominated for video of the year for shaking her silicone ass the vmas are RACIST even tho Beyonce is in that category.

    • Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) July 23, 2015

      I’m considered black but even I rarely speak on those issues because of a wide view on things. Its OK to call someone “white trash” but when they use the n word hell should freeze. When there is news on blacks killing whites I don’t see it on the news at all but let it be one white cop and colored man and its everywhere. The issue is why do black people use the card “blacks can’t be racist” as an excuse to desgrade whites. The issue is not a one sided thing

      • Molly July 23, 2015

        Speak on it boo… you told no lies.

      • Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015

        Marry me 😀

      • TRUTH SERUM July 23, 2015

        Research systemic and institutionalize racism. There’s a difference between the n word and being poor and called white trash. One has roots in slavery, Jim Crow, and a host of other systemic racist acts, laws, practices. White trash is more on par with ghetto. Of course the two most ignorant people on here would agree with your logic.

      • Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015

        But when you say to a black person that he/she is “so ghetto”, they say, he’s racist, he called me a ghetto b****….So ghetto is used as a form of racist too, same with white trash.

      • Mark111 /.\ July 23, 2015

        But mainly White people call white people Whit Trash. Or just Trash, the same thing.

    • Casual-T July 23, 2015

      I concur.

    • R8LATE July 23, 2015

      She’s spoke about plenty of black issues. You just missed them.

      “Man down..before they even get a cap and a damn gown. And it gotta be a heaven..cause Sean Bell wi ll never get to make it to his wedding” – Nicki Minaj “New York Minute” 2010

  16. Realtalk July 23, 2015

    The elephant in the room is “TAYLOR IS A WHACK ASS MANUFACTURED ARTEST THAT BENEFITS FROM BEING WHITE!!! That’s what Nicki wanted to say and that’s what many artist think but won’t say. Pick a talent show and all of their top 10 contestants are far better singers than Taylor will ever be but they don’t have the benefit of a rich brilliant father and great decision making. Bad Blood is a whack ass song and yall know it but it will win video of the year and everybody knows that too which is why Nicki vented. Kanye was right he just went about wrong.

    • Rosie July 23, 2015

      All of the non-technical categories at the VMAs are fan-voted, so if Taylor wins its because her stans took the time to vote, not because of racism.

      • KinG July 23, 2015

        U really believe in a voting system.Everything is rigged.Please WAKE UP 2 REALITY

      • Ciara=Slay July 23, 2015

        You have got to be kidding me, fan voted, like @King said, everything is rigged.

    • Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015

      Can you make a list of the benefits i have because of my skin color, thank you in advance.

      • Realtalk July 23, 2015

        The Sandra Bland case is a clear fresh look at the benefits of being white. There’s a video online of him stopping a white driver right before he profiled Sandra. He was the nices guy in the world when he stopped and let that driver go then he sees a black driver, profiles her then follows her and eventually arrest her for moving out of his way without using her signal, are you f*cking kidding me? What person of color is allowed to marry 3 times, have 3 sets of children then is called a hero when he decides he doesn’t wanna be a man anymore? How many non-whites are allowed in country music? Then after using country music go straight to the top of the pop charts? We’re talking about an artist that’s probably the worst singer out right now. Take away Max Martin and the other great producers and put her on a mic with a piano player and even Rihanna’s better and that’s not saying much.

      • R8LATE July 23, 2015

        Well, for starters.. exemption from your race being exterminated by ppl that are supposed to protect you.

      • shakira stan July 23, 2015

        Shut ur trap you racist.

    • OMG Logic!!! July 23, 2015

      You could say the exact same thing about Onika; except, she doesn’t write her own lyrics, and she can’t play an instrument. That makes her even “more whack” than Swift.

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

    She shouldn’t apologise.

    • It’s Barbie B**** July 23, 2015

      well she did and that makes her a better person then you.

  18. Ms Beykim wants Bieber,One Direction,Miley Cyrus,Gaga and Beyonce (I wanna marry Bieber) July 23, 2015

    Taylor makes me sick for dissing a number of my male favs but I do agree. Katy did have something to do with this cause her whole cover. up would be blown

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

    Onika was throwing shade.

    • R8LATE July 23, 2015

      Yes, to MTV for honoring mediocrity

      • OMG Logic!!! July 23, 2015

        Then why wasn’t she nominated? There’s no artists around more mediocre than Onika atm.

  20. My My Maraj July 23, 2015

    Now we know what David looks like I kind of want to meet him Sam and Rashad,they all seem mad nice.

  21. SMH July 23, 2015

    She apologized because Katy Perry called out on her bullisht. That’s how white people are; it always takes one of their own to let them know when they’re full of it.

    • OMG Logic!!! July 23, 2015

      But what will it take for you to see your obvious racism towards Whites? I mean you’re generalizing them in all in that idiotic little comment of yours.

  22. LOL July 23, 2015


  23. Rosie July 23, 2015

    Its obvious the only reason Taylor had to apologize is because Onika pulled up some dumbass SJW terms off Tumblr to make Taylor look like a “white feminist” while blaming the media, who then wanted to be politically correct and didn’t want to come off as “racist!!” to Black/SJ Twitter.
    The way she ranted, you would’ve thought she was completely snubbed; then her rant would’ve been understandable. But she has THREE noms, so instead she comes off as bratty and childish.

    • Molly July 23, 2015

      Exactly what nominations did Ciara get? But is she screaming racism? Nicki is so ungrateful.

    • Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015


    • TRUTH SERUM July 23, 2015

      So let me get this straight, Nicki had no right to voice her concerns because she should feel privileged about getting nominations. Based on your logic, we should take what they give us and be happy. Never mind the fact these artist are rummaging and pillaging from urban culture and reeking 10 times the reward??? I like Taylor but she completely switched her style (urban lite) and is profiting from it in a major way.

      • It’s Barbie B**** July 23, 2015

        this so much, thank you!

      • TRUTH SERUM July 23, 2015


      • OMG Logic!!! July 23, 2015

        “Rummaging,” “pillaging” you use these terms like you know what they mean and like they apply to this situation. Music belongs to NO ONE. WHITE Europeans popularized music as entertainment for the masses, but when was the last time you heard a White person claiming ownership over Pop music? And no, Onika had NO right to voice her stupid petty whining. Black artists have total control over the Billboard charts right now and somehow they still feel like they deserve more. Tell me, where are all the Hispanic artists on the charts? You don’t see J.Ho3 complaining about it though do you?

        Black people are just selfish and greedy, and the modern generation is taking advantage of legitimate issues to get what they want by simply using the “racist” card whenever and wherever they can.

      • TRUTH SERUM July 23, 2015

        @omg you try hard to sound intelligent but even a blind man can see that logic eludes you. Your mission to discredit #black issues only makes you sound bitter. Stick to mindless insults…

      • Ciara=Slay July 23, 2015

        @TRUTH SERUM, exactly, I called it above.

  24. CiMinaj July 23, 2015

    Yaaaas Taylor! Bow down to the queen!

  25. Lake Erie July 23, 2015


  26. Ozzy July 23, 2015

    Taylor is so weak for that. Grow a backbone b****. Like, Katy forced an apology out of this girl. DEAD.

  27. londontru July 23, 2015

    Taylor ogne by gone in a minute this white chicks is a fad they cant take it when black women make it!!!

    • OMG Logic!!! July 23, 2015

      The irony… You don’t see Onika as a fad? Hilarious.

  28. Bitchpleaseeezzzzzz July 23, 2015

    So do Nicki needs to apologised back or nah for retweeting all tha shades about Taylor????? Lol

    • blue July 23, 2015

      if she isnt on the phone to taylor apologizing already posting a little meaningless twit isnt worth it.

  29. blue July 23, 2015

    if she had reached out to nicki personally and nicki had been the one to post her apology, i might maybe buy that she really did realise her mistake and give her credit for being the bigger person, but this just screams damage control to plaster up the lil cracks in her virginal saint image

  30. Lake Erie July 23, 2015

    To all the people on here who keep changing their avi “name”, can yal please stay consistent with “one name” because i don’t pay attention to the default avi’s unless you customize it. Plus I’m looking for “DTG” from the Janet post.

  31. iSpeakTruthNoFallacy July 23, 2015

    F*** this white broad. Everything she does is completely fake and staged. From her corny dances at award shows when the camera quickly pans to her instant meal music are all phony.

    • Suicide Blonde July 23, 2015

      See, this is a perfect example of a racist comment, you said “F*** this white broad”, if i say “F*** this black this or black that”, this would make news but since you’re black you are allowed to say such things to white people, and we better no dare to call you out cuz we…well, we are white, that would be racist.

      • Molly July 23, 2015

        I see no lies @suicideblonde

  32. Dossome July 23, 2015

    Yeah Nicki should apologize too,not just to Taylor for throwing indirect jabs at her but to the black community too for exploiting the serious issue of Race inequality in pop culture to justify why she got supposedly snubbed for Anaconda and Feelin Myself.Those two videos are trash while Anaconda is a disgusting representation of we blacks paraded as art.It didn’t even deserve a single nomination…As for Katy and Pierce Morgan,typical bufoons

    • Molly July 23, 2015

      Exactly!!!!! Now ima need Nicki to speak up on all black injustice. She isn’t bout to use a serious situation to benefit herself .

      • LoveBey July 23, 2015

        She has spoken many times on actual race issues from trayvon martin to Eric Gardner and most recently Sandra Bland. I’m not Nicki fan but don’t just make up facts to fit into your argument

      • Molly July 23, 2015

        But stop acting like Nicki doesn’t use the race card as a shield. Im mixed I see it both ways.

      • Ciara=Slay July 23, 2015

        @Molly says “Im mixed I see it both ways.”

        ^^What kind of b******* is that

        PLEASE STFU.

      • Molly July 23, 2015

        I am mixed and do see both sides so I get it. Im not biased like majority of blacks who blame everything on whites/racism.

      • Ciara=Slay July 23, 2015

        “majority of blacks who blame everything on whites/racism”

        ANOTHER ignorant ass statement.

        Please STFU and go educate yourself.

  33. Molly July 23, 2015

    Im glad im not the only one who sees thru nickis fakeness.

  35. Cough Cough July 23, 2015

    Minaj’s video was not “video of the year” worthy so this all is was Nicki pouting. Now if Nicki deserved it ok I could understand but the song was trash and the video was standard THOT scenario. Taylor only apologized so that the Barbz who buy her music WONT boycott her stuff. PR move!

  36. Dossome July 23, 2015

    ^Girl bye,the Trayvon Martin issue was a ww trending topic that everyone had an opinion on.All Nicki tweeted was how Lauryn Hill could go to jail for unpaid taxes while a white man is considered innocent after killing a black kid…Outside the usual jumping on the popular bandwagon when it comes to race issues,Nicki hardly goes out of her way to talk about these things,unlike Azealia Banks…Like seriously,she’s always the victim.Who can forget how she started talking about her abortion when promoting PinkPrint?

  37. Barb-wire July 23, 2015

    Good on you Taylor for apologizing, it shows maturity. As I said Nicki said nothing wrong and the end results prove it. As for the Ciara Stan Molly, Ciara has no place complaining about anything, she’d first have to enter the charts and enter the top 40 then she can complain for not being nominated. B**** can’t even score a nomination for an EBT, what makes you think she can she can score a VMA?

    • Molly July 23, 2015

      What does top 40 have to do with VIDEO AWARDS? AMERICAN OXYGEN didn’t even make top 60 but it was nominated. Kiiii I knew you were always a fake b itch pretending to like Ciara to fit in with the hive and c squad kii. Bye bird!

      • Barb-wire July 23, 2015

        Ho I liked Ciara but you continuously coming for Nicki in defence of that Bittch Flopzalea made me realize you’re a fake ass tramp so miss me with the bull. I don’t try fitting in with anybody, I like what I like and I hate what I hate so don’t come here acting all brand like you didn’t and still do come for Nicki. I may like Ciara but I don’t tolerate b*******.

      • Barb-wire July 23, 2015


  38. Barb-wire July 23, 2015

    I want Nicki to do exactly the same thing again when she sees how the industry is being biased as hell. It took a lot of guts and I love her so much for standing by what she said.

  39. Molly July 23, 2015

    Shout out to @SuicideBlonde @Rosie and @Dossome who see thru all the B.S.!!

  43. RICHIE_RICH July 23, 2015

    This is all a mess to me . I love everybody.

    I will say that some blacks use the race card for the wrong issues.

  44. ratedxxx July 23, 2015

    I think Taylor swift music is garbage..

    But lets keep it real Nicki did come for her and hid her hands..

    I cannot stand basic bishes like nicki who only uses the race card only when its convenient

  45. Taylor & Nicki are both idiots July 23, 2015

    I think of taylor more like the Milli Vanilli of the music industry. She can’t sing but was pushed because of her “look” and Kayne making her famous by being a idiot. She couldn’t even get signed by any record labels originally, until her rich daddy paid 150K to a record label so they wouldn’t have any risk. That should tell you how untalented she is. She is just a marketing gimmick and will fade away. Absolutely no one will even remember any of her songs or music 10 years from now. It’s just all disposable musical drivel.

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

      She will fade away? She’s been in the business 10 years… I think you’ll find she’s sold a lot of albums, and will continue to do so for years to come. She might not be too your taste, but to me she is the best artist of this generation!

  46. Rihboy July 23, 2015

    I mean do you guys really fall prey to this s*** every time? It’s routine for these artist to start some s*** up to blind us from whats really going on? I don’t want to be a Jehovah’s Witness or anything but has anyone took the time out to notice that Sandra Blands mugshot was done while she was dead? And that they stood over her taking the picture with her eyes taped open? At the end of the day this s*** is so irrelevant. I know I ride hard for rih. But we have 6 to 7 random celebs starting up beef around the same time Sandra was murdered in cold blood and sold to is as a suicide. Smh. The only artist I seen that shown any concern for Sandra was brandy which is why she is my top 3

  47. Carry On July 24, 2015

    Won’t Nikki be quiet and only come out and say something when she wants something. That easy……

  48. Pu$$y Juice Lover July 24, 2015

    You know what, i respect black people, but this racism shít is so f***éd up. Like @SuicideBlonde and others here said, why do people think its wrong for white people to say the n word or something is wrong but saying s*** like white trash towards white people is ok? White people should respect blacks and blacks should respect white. Its 2015 , the world is so much advanced and acceptable, the president is black and all of the biggest names in the world are black. + Nicki was being stupid, Kendrick has the most nominations and beyonce also has a few , how does she playing the race card?

  49. another bty day something ain’t wrong July 26, 2015

    Bet Taylor swift felt dumbed for response to nicki minja tweets Taylor is not 21 year old she’s 25 year old
