"Gun in my purse, b*tch I came dressed to kill...."
when it definitely should have beenRidiculous.
This isn't the first time a video that deserved a nomination was snubbed.
Minaj called out the award show saying that she has done everything the other nominees have done in her series of tweets but because she is black, she's been discriminated against and everyone knows it :
It all started out with Minaj pointing out the flaws in how nominees are selected...
Then Taylor Swift swooped in and reprimanded Minaj's tweets in the stance of faux-feminism.
Minaj responded proving that Swift was in the wrong. Swift tried to make it about herself completely missing Minaj's point.
And yet in all of the chaos, Kim Kardashian still managed to get involved...
Ryan Seacrest jumped in siding with Swift which led to a swarm of attacks at Seacrest. He eventually deleted his tweet that victimized Swift and made Minaj look like she was attacking and weak. Yikes.
And then Meek Mill thought it'd also be appropriate to throw shade at Drake. Horrible timing.
Of course Bruno Mars tried to lighten the situation by launching a fake Twitter fight against Ed Sheeran. Aaron Paul invited the girls to pancakes. Indirectly, they were all mocking the girls and their behavior. They got to sit back and watch the show unfold...
Katy Perry favorited Bruno Mar's tweet amidst the criticism of Taylor Swift. SHOCKER.
"Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it."
Fans are NOT HAPPY with the nominations or Taylor Swift. In the past, Best Music Video of the Year is the top award for genre-defining videos. It's been given to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance", Katy Perry's "Firework", Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)", and Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U" in the past. Minaj is simply pointing out that nominations should be given and awarded to artists who are getting it based off of achievement. That's what an award show is for.
Do you think Minaj is in the right?
