Taylor Swift Apologizes to Nicki Minaj
Accepting Swift’s apology, Minaj responded.
I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 23, 2015
She continued to show her gratitude with a follow up tweet.
That means so much Taylor, thank you. @taylorswift13 ❤️❤️❤️— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 23, 2015
Meanwhile, Swift’s pal Ed Sheeran has also offered up an apology to Minaj after he jumped to his pal’s defense on Wednesday, July 22, 2015, telling the Sydney Daily Telegraph, “I think everyone knows that Taylor has done nothing wrong in that situation. She didn’t nominate herself for the awards. It’s not her fault, she just made some good videos and people think they’re good.” He added, “I think the Minaj point is a bit redundant; her point is that you have to be skinny and white to get a video of the year nomination but Beyonce’s 7/11 is in there and that is celebrating the female figure in every form.” Sheeran insists his comments were taken out of context
I've always loved her. Everyone makes mistakes. She gained so much more respect from me. Let's move on. https://t.co/mx9pfIdnzT— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 23, 2015
BuzzFeed UK quickly responded to Sheeran’s tweets, offering to accommodate him by making changes to their article. Sheeran replied.
@BuzzFeedUK that's taken out of context and not what I was saying was redundant at all— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) July 23, 2015
@BuzzFeedUK I was making a point about body image and not race, whilst sticking up for a mate, I definitely said it wrong though, apologies— Ed Sheeran (@edsheeran) July 23, 2015
