Nicki Minaj appeared on Good Morning America on Friday morning, and in an interview, she addressed her VMA debate with Taylor Swift that happened over Twitter this week.

“First of all, I spoke to Taylor Swift yesterday on the phone,” Minaj said. “She was super super sweet and she apologized. She said, ‘Look, I didn’t understand the big picture of what you were saying but now I get it.’ We’re all good.”

Minaj also said that there seemed to be some “funny business” going on with the VMA nominations since her video for “Anaconda” broke a Vevo record but wasn’t nominated for Video of the Year. “I think if it were one of the pop girls, they would have had many nominations for it.” (The “Anaconda” video was nominated for Best Female and Best Hip Hop video.)

“I just think we need to have both images for girls,” Minaj said. “We can’t have only one type of body being glorified in the media because it just makes girls even more insecure than we already are.”

She also commended Swift for apologizing and said, “We spoke for a long time. We were cracking up laughing. It’s over.”
