Nicki Minaj gets the (possibly) last word.

So you might have heard that Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift have been fighting on Twitter since the VMA nominations came out. To quote myself from earlier today, Nicki Minaj tweeted some valid criticisms of the way the music industry views race after her iconic Anaconda video was snubbed for Video of the Year. Then, Taylor Swift accused her of pitting women against each other.

Taylor has since (as of two hours ago) apologized, and Nicki accepted the apology. She also tweeted a hilariously conspiratorial emoji at Katy Perry for having her back.

She then asked everyone to move on.

And now, knowing that there are many eyes on her Twitter, Minaj is using her platform to bring attention to an important issue. She's asking people to take the time to look into the heartbreaking story of Sandra Bland and educate themselves.

And to anyone who says that Minaj never cared about social issues until she didn't get an award, she has a message for you, too.

Jokes on you, everyone who made fun of us for covering trivial celebrity gossip! It was all a long con to get you to read the news!
