As we all get excited for MTV’s 2015 Video Music Awards in August, celebrities also prepare and anticipate who will take home the coveted awards.  The nominee list was released this today, leaving many stars satisfied and others questioning why their name was left off the list.

With all the videos released each year, it is an honor to be nominated for the Video of the Year Award.  This year’s nominees for Video of the Year include: Beyoncé for “7/11,″ Ed Sheeran for “Thinking Out Loud,” Taylor Swift ft. Kendrick Lamar for “Bad Blood,” Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars for “Uptown Funk,” and Kendrick Lamar  for “Alright.”

When Nicki Minaj didn’t see her “Anaconda” music video on the list, she tweeted:

These tweets offended nominee Taylor Swift, also nominated for 8 other VMA’s, who tweeted back at her the following tweet.

The responses between the two continued until Taylor put up the white flag. This miscommunication between the two is the first of celebrity VMA drama, over a month out from the actual award ceremony.

Fans from both sides came to the rescue. Some, saying Taylor shouldn’t have taken the tweet to be about her.  Nicki said her posts were intended to be against the white media.  Taylor’s fans are defending her by saying her Video has Kendrick Lamar in it, so the “women with slim bodies” comment was clearly a jab at her.
