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

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.  

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