Amer­i­can pop star Katy Perry (above) has waded into ru­moured ri­val Tay­lor Swift (inset, be­low right) and Nicki Mi­naj’s (inset, right) Twit­ter feud by pok­ing fun at Swift’s choice of words.

A day af­ter Swift and Mi­naj had a heated ar­gu­ment over the rap­tress’ MTV Video Mu­sic Award nom­i­na­tions, Perry took to Twit­ter to seem­ingly crit­i­cise Swift, re­ported Ace Showbiz. “Find­ing it ironic to pa­rade the pit women against other women ar­gu­ment about as one un­mea­sur­ably cap­i­talises on the take down of a woman... (sic),” Perry wrote.

In a fol­low-up tweet, Perry gave a shout-out to Ri­hanna as she ex­pressed her dis­ap­point­ment over the ex­clu­sion of the Ba­jan singer’s Bet­ter Have My Money from all cat­e­gories at the VMAs. “The real trav­esty is where is the shine for #BBHMMVideo when VMA el­i­gi­bil­ity pe­riod was 7/7/14-7/1/15 & that gem dropped 7/1... @MTV,” she con­tin­ued.

Mi­naj and Swift got into an online spat af­ter Mi­naj found out her Ana­conda video wasn’t nom­i­nated for the cov­eted Video of the Year Award. “If your video cel­e­brates women with very slim bod­ies, you will be nom­i­nated for vid of the year,” Mi­naj com­plained on Twit­ter.

Swift, one of only two fe­male artists nom­i­nated for the big prize, felt at­tacked by the com­ment. “I’ve done noth­ing but love & sup­port you. It’s un­like you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot,” Swift re­sponded.

Mi­naj spent the rest of the day try­ing to make it clear that her tweet wasn’t di­rected at Swift or any­one in par­tic­u­lar.
