Slim chance of show­ing grace

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

HER ana­conda got none.

Nicki Mi­naj has called out MTV for snub­bing her videos for Ana­conda and Feel­ing My­self from the Video of the Year cat­e­gory at the VMAs.

She took aim at the TV chan­nel for hon­our­ing “other girls” who have “very slim bod­ies” in their mu­sic videos, in a veiled ref­er­ence to Tay­lor Swift’s Bad Blood video, which fea­tures skinny mod­els.

Swift, who was nom­i­nated for nine VMAs, took Mi­naj’s tweet per­son­ally.

Mi­naj, 32, made news with the video for Ana­conda, which fea­tured a lot of booty, hardly any clothes and Mi­naj grind­ing on rap­per Drake’s lap.

But un­like Bad Blood, Mi­naj’s clip was only nom­i­nated for Best Fe­male Video, not Video of the Year. Mi­naj even brought Bey­once into her Twit­ter spray.

BAD BLOOD: Mu­sic chart- top­pers Tay­lor Swift and Nicki Mi­naj.
