Nicki Minaj don’t want none unless it’s Video of the Year.
The hip-hop superstar took to Twitter to air out her grievances after being excluded from the Video of the Year category at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.
She feels her videos would be honored by MTV if she was a “different kind of artist”.
While she did score three nominations including Best Female Video, Best Hip-Hop Video, and Best Collaboration, Nicki’s “Anaconda” video was not nominated in the VOTY category.
“If I was a different ‘kind’ of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well,” tweeted Nicki Minaj.
“When the ‘other’ girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination.”
Upon its release in August 2014, the raunchy “Anaconda” clip set a record with 19.6 million views in 24 hours and spawned plenty of memes and YouTube parodies.
“Feelin’ Myself” felt similarly huge, even when released through Tidal, a medium that has generally killed the hype for even the biggest artists’ releases.
The “other” nominees in the Video of the Year category include Beyoncé’s “7/11,” Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright,” Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood,” Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” and Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”
