Late Tuesday afternoon, acclaimed pop star Taylor Swift sent an emotionally wounded retort to fellow acclaimed pop star Nicki Minaj. Swift was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award for Best Video, while Minaj was not.

Naturally, since this is 2015, Swift launched her reply on Twitter, where everybody could see it.

@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..

It was just the latest development in a long, unfolding saga that ended up involving people with very, very carefully sculpted images behaving like, well, human beings on social media, and learning a lesson all parents should tell their children when tucking them in at night: No matter what it is, never tweet.

The MTV Video Music Awards are now primarily known in the public consciousness as a platform for unusually bananas musical performances. (It’s where, for instance, Miley Cyrus twerked and launched a million think pieces.) But like music’s other big awards — the Grammys — those performances are just there so you’ll watch while awards are handed out, and even if the audience doesn’t particularly care who wins, the artists very much do.

 

 

Minaj’s video for “Anaconda,” a riotous, gleeful celebration (and satirization) of female sexuality, was by far one of the biggest videos of the year. Essentially everything Swift touches nowadays turns to gold. It made sense to assume they would both be nominated.
