Taylor Swift

Nicki Minaj was on Twitter discussing her issues with her 2015 Video Music Award ‘Video of the Year’ snub for the ‘Anaconda’ video. She never mentioned Taylor Swift by name when she made this comment.

Well Taylor Swift went on the defense about the tweet and said that she has done nothing but support Nicki Minaj. Then brought that she was pitting women against each other.

Yet again playing victim, Taylor Swift felt she was being attacked and went to the all ‘inclusive’ move as if the tweet was specifically about her. It is not about all the women in this case. While black artist should not need to feel these awards validate their hard work and success, the awards do mean something to people who do not know better. Of course Nicki was confused as why Taylor would respond to her.

Clearly missing the point, Taylor Swift would not acknowledge the obvious snub from the category but Ryan Seacrest may have unintentionally made it noticeable even for Swift to see.

THAT was the point she was trying to make. When women of color flaunt a body that is not slim or skinny then it is looked at as ugly and shamed. Serena Williams has become the perfect example in the sports world. While she dominates the court and has a very defined shape and physically fit, she is called a man and in the media not considered beautiful.

Ryan Seacrest headline painted Nicki Minaj out to be the stereotypical ‘angry black woman’ when she never trashed Swift in any way, just pointing out the hypocrisy of it all. Everyone at MTV was fine about twerking and showing off when Miley Cyrus was doing it.
