One day after the "Anaconda" rapper and the "Shake It Off" singer got into a Twitter spat over the 2015 MTV Video Music Award nominations, the 30-year-old singer has weighed in on their wars of words—and she's not holding back any of her disdain for Taylor Swift.
"Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman..." she wrote (presumably, the tweet was written on her phone and will soon be edited).
A simple translation? She's calling Taylor Swift a hypocrite since the 25-year-old pop star penned her hit "Bad Blood" about her ongoing feud with Perry (Minaj has since favorited the tweet).

A few moments later, Perry shared more of her thoughts on the upcoming award show. "The real travesty is where is the shine for #BBHMMVideo when VMA eligibility period was 7/7/14-7/1/15 & that gem dropped 7/1...@MTV," she wrote, referring to BFF Rihanna's music video "Bitch Better Have My Money" (techically, Rihanna's video dropped at midnight and presumably, did not make the cut).
Swift and Minaj first made headlines after the "Starships" rapper tweeted her frustration over her music videos for "Feelin' Myself" and "Anaconda" not being nominated for Video of the Year.
"If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year. Oh but trust me. I'll be on that stage to collect my awards for vid of the year. Feeling Myself & Anaconda," the outspoken rapper wrote.

While Minaj didn't name names, fans immediately began speculating the tweet was aimed at Swift and her "Bad Blood" music video (the other nominees in the category include Beyoncé's "7/11," Kendrick Lamar's "Alright," Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars, "Uptown Funk" and Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud").
"@NICKIMINAJ I've done nothing but love & support you," Swift wrote in response. "It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot."
The 32-year-old rapper then clarified that "didn't say a word" about Taylor before blaming "white media and their tactics" which quickly spurred an invitation from Swift for Minaj to join her onstage.
"@NICKIMINAJ If I win, please come up with me!!" Swift tweeted. "You're invited to any stage I'm ever on."
In spite of Taylor and Nicki seemingly putting their misunderstanding to rest, Perry apparently got wind of the tweets and couldn't help but take a dig at her former friend.
The pair's feud has continued to make headlines over the past two years after Swift seemingly hinted, in a 2014 interview with Rolling Stone, that she penned "Bad Blood" about her friendship with Perry.
"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," she said, until last year the woman in question "did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour."
Shortly after, Perry tweeted, "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing..."
