Earlier this week, MTV announced their 2015 MTV Video Music Awards nominations and rapper Nicki Minaj was not all too happy that her “Anaconda” video failed to be included on the list. Nicki believes that her video was impactful and should have been nominated. She took to Twitter to convey her feelings tweeting,
If I was a different “kind” of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. U couldn’t go on social media w/o seeing ppl doing the cover art, choreo, outfits for Halloween…an impact like that & no VOTY nomination?
Nicki went on to tweet,
When the “other” girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination.
Well, new host to the daytime talk show, The View Raven-Symone voiced her opinion on the matter.
She believes that Taylor Swift’s incredibly popular video “Bad Blood” is deserving of an MTV nomination because in the video they were kicking butt and promotes girl empowerment.
I know about the strip clubs, I’m down for the strip clubs, handle your business. I’m there. But you don’t need videos where girls are naked that way. We need a healthy balance between overly sexed and non-overly sexed. And you need different kinds of music to cater to different things. You have to realize you’re catering to people under the age of 18.
