In a new interview with NME, Taylor Swift opens up about her VMA feud with Nicki Minaj for the first time in months…sort of. In July, Taylor called Nicki out on Twitter for her comments about “women with very slim bodies,” thinking it was a personal attack against her. The tweets kicked off a tense but brief exchange, with Taylor eventually conceding she was in the wrong and then hugging it out with Nicki.
Taylor hadn’t made any further comments about it and managed to dodge the eventual feud between Nicki and Miley Cyrus. It’s been over a month now and it seemed like most people had moved on. But in yesterday’s New York Times Magazine interview, Nicki was pretty vocal about still holding a grudge against Miley.
NME asked Taylor about her role in the feud. “I don’t want to talk about it,” she said. She went on to explain that in the future, we can expect the “Wildest Dreams” singer to keep her comments out of social media. “I send text messages now. If there seems to be some kind of misunderstanding, I go to someone’s management, I get their number and I text them. It’s an important lesson for anyone to learn in 2015.”
The full article will be available in the print version of the free magazine on October 9th.
