Beautiful way to start the show! No BAD BLOOD between the two!
Sunday night, Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj put all the rumors and “beef” aside and performed together as the opening act of the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.
As Minaj was singing her No. 1 single, “The Night Is Still Young,” Swift then appeared in a shiny red dress where she merged. Soon after, Swift began to sing her hit track, “Bad Blood,” and the rapper joined with her.
“That was so much fun,” said Swift to E! News after the performance. “I was dying because I didn’t know she was going to drop it. We rehearsed seven times and she never dropped it. I was dying laughing.”
Singer Selena Gomez who is a close friend of Swift, also added, “That is how you do it!”
Over a month ago, both made headlines as they ranted on Twitter following an announcement of the ceremony’s first nominations. Swift was nominated in the coveted Video of the Year category for “Bad Blood” but Minaj was bothered.
“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” wrote Minaj on Twitter.
The singer Swift felt offended by the rappers’ words and responded, “@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”
As time passed, the rapper claimed that was not speaking about Swift. The singer apologized and invited the rapper to come up on stage with her if she wins and stated, “You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”
After the ranting, rapper Minaj went on Good Morning America and added that she had spoken to Swift over the phone stating that both are “all good.”
Well thanks for putting aside the “beef” because that was one heck of a performance!
