The Taylor Swift-Nicki Minaj Twitter Drama, Explained With Emoji

Jul 24, 2015

The recent drama between Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift surrounding the VMAs nominations got pretty complicated and, for many people, hard to follow. Katy Perry jumped in! Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars started a feud too, but theirs was fake! Taylor apologized! Nicki accepted!

If you're still confused about how it all went down, Jimmy Kimmel has a fairly comprehensive explanation, told entirely with some very helpful emoji.

After explaining all the drama, Kimmel concludes: "And then my 14-year-old niece Alison exploded." (You're not alone, Alison. You're not alone.)

As Entertainment Weekly points out, though, Kimmel omitted one interesting piece of this puzzle. Camilla Belle, believed to be the subject of Swift's 2010 song "Better Than Revenge," weighed in too, revealing some additional bad blood.
