Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift have been going at each other on Twitter in a feud worthy of a new version of "Bad Blood."

It all started when Nicki took to the site to air her annoyance that her song, "Anaconda," which broke video streaming records when it was released almost a year ago, didn't get nods for Best Choreography or Video of the Year at this year's VMAs, even though it did get nominated for Best Female Video and Best Hip-Hop Video.

Nicki thought the video deserved more recognition, especially after the choreography became a meme.

Then she did it. She tweeted something that looked like a direct strike against another female artist, whose video broke the streaming records previously set by "Anaconda": Taylor Swift.

And Swift wasted no time in defending herself.

As much as Nicki claimed her comments weren't directed at Taylor…

… she also retweeted this:

Taylor tried to make peace, inviting Nicki to join her onstage if she ends up winning Video of the Year.

But Nicki ignored the offer, instead tweeting about something else that she apparently sees as a double standard between herself and Taylor.
