It all started yesterday when the MTV Video Music Award Nominations were released. Of course, Twitter had a lot to say about these, with #VMA leading as a trending topic. But soon joining in the trending topics were more specific artists.... namely #TaylorSwift and #NickiMinaj.
Nicki Minaj vented on Twitter after her biggest hit "Anaconda" wasn't nominated for Video Of The Year. The video, which received 19.6 million clicks in its first 24 hours, set a music video record at the time. So, Minaj had a point when she thought she was snubbed. She tweeted:

Nicki replied with a confused "Huh?" and a back and forth ensued between the two. Well, I guess rather than "between the two", I should say "with all of Twitter" as it seemed like every reader had an opinion on this conversation which erupted into a sprawling conversation about race and gender.
What do you think of the debate? Are you #TeamNicki or #TeamTaylor?
