Nicki Minaj And Taylor Swift Engage In A Twitter Feud Over VMA Nominations

Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift exchanged some words due to Nicki's gripe "Anaconda" wasn't nominated for MTV's Video of The Year.

Nicki Minaj has been quite vocal about "Anaconda" not being nominated for MTV's Video of The Year, despite having received nominations in the Best Female and Best hip-hop video category.

In a series of Tweets Tuesday (July 21) that led to Anaconda becoming a trending topic, the Head Barb in Charge let it be known her bootylicious video, which racked up a whopping 19.8 million views in 24 hours, was more than worthy of the prestigious award.

Music's darling Ms. 1989 herself Taylor Swift, got wind of Nicki's Tweets and chimed in.ย 

Nicki, who didn't mention Swift by name, seemed perplexed as to why the 25-year-old felt the need to comment.

Wanting to avoid any bad blood, the "Bad Blood" singer (see what we did there?) ended things peacefully. ย 

Also offering an opinion wasย J.Cole's right hand man, Ibrahimย Hamad. Ib, took to Twitter to offer some perspective to artists who similarly to Nicki, may have felt snubbed by any major award ceremony.

'Sesame Street' Praised For The Inclusion Of Homeless Character

Sesame Street continues its crusade to include statement-making characters on their block. This time around, families will be introduced to Lily, the showโ€™s first homeless character.

According to USA Today, Lily- an adorable hot pink, red haired puppet- was first introduced to the show in 2011, but in new online clips, Lily opens up about being homeless and staying with friends.

"Now we don't have our own place to live, and sometimes I wonder if we'll ever have our own home," she says to Elmo in one clip. In her initial appearances on the show, Lily discusses her familyโ€™s food insecurities, meaning they didnโ€™t have much to eat.

โ€œWe know children experiencing homelessness are often caught up in a devastating cycle of trauma โ€“ the lack of affordable housing, poverty, domestic violence, or other trauma that caused them to lose their home, the trauma of actually losing their home, and the daily trauma of the uncertainty and insecurity of being homeless,โ€ saidย Sherrie Westin, President of Global Impact and Philanthropy at Sesame Workshop.

โ€œWe want to help disrupt that cycle by comforting children, empowering them, and giving them hope for the future," she continues. "We want them to know that they are not alone and home is more than a house or an apartment โ€“ home is wherever the love lives.โ€

In recent years, Sesame Street has introduced a slew of ground-breaking new characters, including Julia, a puppet with autism, and Alex, a character whose father is incarcerated.

In addition to the โ€œMoneyโ€ rapper, Amber Heard and Armie Hammer will also appear on the same episode. Corden is closing out the last leg of 2018 strong by having a slew of other prominent stars on the show on the last week before the program goes on break for the holidays. The likes of Gwen Stefani, RuPaul, Jennifer Lopez, Emily Blunt, Leah Remini, Lin-Manuel Miranda, among others will be featured on the show after Bardiโ€™s Monday episode.

To say the least, we're sure the British talk show host and the newly minted Grammy-nominated rapper are going to have the time of their lives.

The 26-year-old's now estranged husband Offset, along with the other members of Migos were guests on the beloved show. Joining Corden as he drove through the streets of Los Angeles, the trio performed a slew of hits including "Walk It Talk It"ย  while also giving a nod of praise to past hits, including Whitney Houston's "Wanna Dance With Somebody."

With all the fun Migos had with Corden, we can only imagine whatย shenanigans James and Belcalis are going to get into.

Romeo May Have Landed A Role In 'Bad Boys For Life'

Bad Boys 3 is officially going down, and there's going to be a lot of new changes. The biggest change seems to be major additions to the film's cast. In fact, Romeo Miller recently hopped on social media on Tuesday (Dec. 11), suggesting that he could be the newest addition to the Bad Boys team.

Romeo shared a photo of an email for a callback to the Bad Boys set on his Instagram Stories on Dec. 11. "When you get callbacks and opportunity to work alongside your idols, @martinlawrence and @willsmith, you go study and go ghost," the rapper-turned-actor said, mentioning stars Martin Lawrenceย and Will Smith.

Romeo isn't the only hip-hop star to possibly land a role in the forthcoming movie. Nicky Jam also suggested he was going out for a part during an interview with TMZ in Nov. 2018.ย "I actually came her because I'm doing a casting for a movie," he said at the time.

As previously reported Will Smith and Martin Lawrence announced that the third installment of the Bad Boys franchise is finally happening after years of negotiating. The upcoming film, entitled,ย Bad Boys For Life, is expected to premiere in Jan. 2020.

Check out Romeo's post below.
