Nicki Minaj has had a week filled with controversies. Starting with her Twitter battle with Taylor Swift, the two got into an altercation after Nicki Minaj expressed her disappointment with MTV’s Video Music Awards on Twitter. This is following the absence of her “Anaconda” video from the Video of the Year and Best Choreography nominations list, despite the fact that it broke several online video streaming records.
The following were her comments on Twitter.

If I was a different “kind” of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well.

If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.
However, Taylor Swift was incensed by the last tweet, believing it to be directed at her and came out guns blazing against Nicki. This was her reply.
“Taylor Swift @taylorswift13
@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..
1:13 AM – 22 Jul 2015”
Surprised by this, Nicki Minaj then took the time to clarify her opinion.
“NICKI MINAJ @NICKIMINAJ
Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn’t say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this. @taylorswift13
1:18 AM – 22 Jul 2015”
However, Taylor is said to have contacted Nicki and apologized for having misunderstood her tweets, according to BBC News.
That aside, her boyfriend Meek Mill this week called Safaree Samuels, Nicki’s ex, gay. This is after Samuels posted a tweet saying that Nicki had recently confessed to still having feelings for him.
Nicki then responded saying, “He [Meek Mill] knows when u hit me… He sees the entire convo so don’t purposely try to be misleading. That’s corny if it’s true. Wish u the best.”
According to Hiphop Dx, Samuel’s responded, “Show him the email you sent me on my birthday. If were not 2gthr u shouldnt be questioning me about old shit at all. thats not moving on.”
Upset by this, Meek took on Safaree on Twitter by saying he is gay, pointing to a picture of Nicki giving Drake a lap dance while she was dating Samuels. He cited that no real man allows his woman to do stuff like that with other guys.
“This n***a SB was twerking mannnnnnnn….i always thought u was gay letting Ya girl do all that s**t with n****s while yall where together! Lol,” Meek wrote.
