Nicki Minaj demands respect, and that’s not a secret. So when she feels slighted, you’ll hear about it. Minaj feels MTV slighted her in the VMA nominations. Now, that’s a bigger story than the nominations themselves.
“Anaconda” or “Feeling Myself” (the TIDAL exclusive) didn’t get the nod for Video of the Year. Instead the nominees are Beyoncé‘s “7/11,” Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk” and Kendrick Lamar‘s “Alright.” A fair list, but “Anaconda,” with its near half a billion YouTube views, is a clear oversight. And again, Nicki Minaj doesn’t like to be oversighted.
Hey guys @MTV thank you for my nominations. 😘😘😘 Did Feeling Myself miss the deadline or…?
That photo symbolizes why “Anaconda” is an egregious miss: it was a cultural phenomenon when it hit. It broke Vevo’s 24-hour streaming record with 19.6 million (a record that was broken again by “Bad Blood”).
If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊
“Anaconda” is nominated for Best Hip-Hop Video and Best Female Video. Minaj is also coming from winning the BET Award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for the sixth straight time. Minaj has her accolades, but there may be extra headlines if she does take a Moonman and gets a chance to make an acceptance speech.
