Two days after Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj’s bizarre twitter spat, Swift has tweeted an apology to Minaj.
“I thought I was being called out,” Taylor tweeted. “I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki.”
I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 23, 2015
Nicki then tweeted "That means so much Taylor, thank you."
Fans were estatic that the two made up and Nicki even tweeted at a fan sayinf that she "always loved" Swift and that the singer "gained so much more respect from" her.
That means so much Taylor, thank you. @taylorswift13 ❤️❤️❤️— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 23, 2015

In case you forgot, or some how missed what happened prior to all of this here’s a refresh:
The nominations for MTV’s VMA’s were released on Monday. Taylor Swift’s music video for Bad Blood was nominated for nine awards including “Video of the Year.”
Nicki Minaj however was only nominated for three. Nicki took great offense to this and went to twitter to air her grievances.
Hey guys @MTV thank you for my nominations. 😘😘😘 Did Feeling Myself miss the deadline or...?— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
If I was a different "kind" of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. 😊😊😊— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
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 MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
When the "other" girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination. 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
Taylor, who took offense to some of these tweets then responded to Nicki saying:
@NICKIMINAJ I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 21, 2015
And then Nicki responded to Taylor:
Huh? U must not be reading my tweets. Didn't say a word about u. I love u just as much. But u should speak on this. @taylorswift13— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) July 21, 2015
Taylor then tried to backpedal and tweeted:
@NICKIMINAJ If I win, please come up with me!! You're invited to any stage I'm ever on.— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 21, 2015
