All feuds must die.
Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj had a very public Twitter feud last month, a fight that inspired many other feuds, both real and fake. The two made nice publicly, but most people were salivating for more beef between the two pop stars to start sizzling on the Video Music Award grill. That's a crazy metaphor, but you get it. Well, put away your steak sauce, because all we got was this orchestrated, animatronic performance of Bad Blood in coordinated outfits. And these generic well-wishes written by saccharine social media managers:
This ersatz make-up, however, does bolster the argument that the beef unleashed (what is it a cow or a tiger? This metaphor is crazy!) on the VMA stage last night between Nicki and Miley Cyrus was completely real. Compared to this choreographed "we're cool" blandness, Nicki calling Miley a "bitch" is biting social commentary.
