Mindy Kaling kept it pretty simple on Sunday’s Watch What Happens Live when she was asked whether she was Team Taylor Swift, Team Nicki Minaj, or Team Miley Cyrus with regard to the controversy surrounding the VMAs.

Most likely in an effort to butter Swift up for the next time she’s casting a music video with more cameos than a Hollywood blockbuster, Kaling is Team Taylor. “I was miffed not to be in ‘Bad Blood,'” Kaling joked to host Andy Cohen. “I sometimes lie to people and say that I was in ‘Bad Blood,'” she said, adding that she has a couple of friends in the video and kept waiting to see herself appear. 

Also on the episode were Empire stars Bryshere “Yazz” Gray and Ta’Rhonda Jones, who said that they have not heard anything about the inner workings of Swift’s squad despite fellow costar Serayah McNeill actually appearing in “Bad Blood.” That said, Yazz certainly wishes that McNeill would spill.
