The MTV Video Music Award nominations were announced on Tuesday morning. Singer suggests that cable network passed over “Anaconda” for Video of the Year in favor of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”
Rapper’s record-breaking “Anaconda” was passed over for Video of the Year in favor of Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” Minaj suggested that it was because she wasn’t the “right” kind of artist to get the coveted nomination.
Set in futuristic London, Catastrophe is betrayed and pushed off a building. After being tended, she meets with female crime-fighters, each with unique skills and weapons. It ends in burning flames as the women meet for a final face-off Directored by Joseph Kahn and written by Taylor Swift also work as star.
“When the ‘other’ girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination,” Nicki Minaj wrote during her hours-long Twitter rant.
However, Nicki Minaj is nominated for Best Female Video, Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Collaboration with Jessie J and Ariana Grande for “Bang Bang.”
Nicki Minaj’s steamy video for her hit song “Anaconda” celebrated her body and brash attitude as she described raunchy extracurricular activities while showing off her curves. “Anaconda” also paid homage to beautiful buttocks by sampling the world’s preeminent ode to buxom backsides, Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back.”
The rapper, that scored 3 nominations herself, accused MTV of snubbing her strike song “Anaconda” for ‘Video of the Year,’ alluding to exactly how Taylor Swift’s “Unsatisfactory Blood” landed among the best award’s nominees although the 2 videos shattered viewing records and became staples of this year’s pop culture.
