Twitter is feeling really tense right now.


Taylor Swift has tweeted an apology to Nicki Minaj, after the rapper said her comments weren't aimed directly at the '1989' singer.


Following the unveiling of this year's MTV VMA nominations yesterday (which you can view in full here), Nicki Minaj took to her social media accounts to announce first, her surprise that her Beyoncé-assisted song 'Feeling Myself' wasn't nominated for any gongs and second, her anger that although 'Anaconda' was nominated for 'Best Female Video' and 'Best Hip-Hop Video,' it was left out of the coveted 'Video Of The Year' category.

Nicki took to Twitter to vent, claiming that she would have been nominated if she was a "different kind of artist."

Taylor Swift, who was was nominated for 'Video Of The Year' alongside Beyoncé, Ed Sheeran and Mark Ronson, took personal offence the the latter tweet and decided to weigh in on the situation, which resulted in a slightly tense back and forth between the two superstars.

Nicki went on to retweet a bunch of her Barbz tweets that take shots at Taylor for "making it about her."

Meanwhile, other celebrities have weighed in on the beef.

Chris Brown posted the below meme on Instagram (although he's since deleted it).

The VMA's are going to be highly awkward this year.
