Twitter's Biggest Celebrity WAR

"Gun in my purse, b*tch I came dressed to kill...."

On July 21st, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to release her frustrations with the MTV VMAs nominations. Minaj is largely upset that her music video "Anaconda" was not nominated for Best Choreography and Best Video of the Year when it definitely should have been. Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" hit 19.6 million views in the first 24 hours breaking all previous VEVO records. The next to break Minaj's VEVO records was Taylor Swift which is why when Minaj refers to "girls" in her tweets, it's why many think is ultimately a poke at Swift. The "Anaconda" video caused a media storm filled with men sexualizing Minaj, women critiquing, thousands of memes, celebrity mockery, and Minaj risking her self image. Everyone who was anyone talked about that video and was OBSESSED. However, MTV Video Music Awards still didn't nominate her video. Ridiculous.
This isn't the first time a video that deserved a nomination was snubbed. Katy Perry's "Roar" was not nominated last year when the view count for her video broke multiple records. She took to Twitter last year prior to the awards upset over the nominations. It has now opened the gates for all artists to feel comfortable to use their voice to call out the award show when they know they deserved a nomination.
Minaj called out the award show saying that she has done everything the other nominees have done in her series of tweets but because she is black, she's been discriminated against and everyone knows it :

It all started out with Minaj pointing out the flaws in how nominees are selected...

Then Taylor Swift swooped in and reprimanded Minaj's tweets in the stance of faux-feminism.

Minaj responded proving that Swift was in the wrong. Swift tried to make it about herself completely missing Minaj's point.

And yet in all of the chaos, Kim Kardashian still managed to get involved...

Ryan Seacrest jumped in siding with Swift which led to a swarm of attacks at Seacrest. He eventually deleted his tweet that victimized Swift and made Minaj look like she was attacking and weak. Yikes.

And then Meek Mill thought it'd also be appropriate to throw shade at Drake. Horrible timing.

Of course Bruno Mars tried to lighten the situation by launching a fake Twitter fight against Ed Sheeran. Aaron Paul invited the girls to pancakes. Indirectly, they were all mocking the girls and their behavior. They got to sit back and watch the show unfold...

Katy Perry favorited Bruno Mar's tweet amidst the criticism of Taylor Swift. SHOCKER.

"Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it."

Fans are NOT HAPPY with the nominations or Taylor Swift. In the past, Best Music Video of the Year is the top award for genre-defining videos. It's been given to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance", Katy Perry's "Firework", Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)", and Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U" in the past. Minaj is simply pointing out that nominations should be given and awarded to artists who are getting it based off of achievement. That's what an award show is for.
Do you think Minaj is in the right? I think so.

Tay is a fail, imo. I found her tweets to be vapid and condescending. Minaj was right. love Kim's black eye for being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
I LOVE NICKI. I feel like she's so much smarter than people give her credit for, and seeing people just sort of shut down her opinion - whether it's Taylor or the media - is kind of obnoxious and taletelling of just how imbalanced and unfair the industry treats people.
@marshalledgar @danidee I agree with both of you completely, no matter what happens through all of this I'll still be team Nicki \(^-^)/
Personally, I think everyone needs to back up for a minute and chill. Instead of pointing fingers at everyone else, did anyone consider to confront the people who CHOSE the nominated videos? I didn't watch the VMAs, so idk who was all in it. I'm sorry Nicki didn't get the recognition she felt she earned.
both these heffers are stupid, its just the VMA's. Minaj got caught talking shit/ hating and got called out on it, which in result is changing the story and making it seems like she's all righteous with valid points (which work to her favor, cant disagree with that) and Swift should have just not tweeted, her attempt to stick up for herself failed and she also offend Minaj with that whole "stand next to me while a get MY award". in the end they're both dumb and there stunt worked cause we're all talking about them........just saying haha

HOME MADE AROMATHERAPY CANDLES
Who doesn’t love candles? These Homemade Aromatherapy Candles make the ultimate relaxation gift and the perfect use for all of those old mason jars. You just need wax, wicks and essential oils. That’s right! essential oils are what help you make homemade scented candles meaning you can customize them yourselves! DIY Aromatherapy Candles. These Homemade Aromatherapy Candles are so easy to make. The hardest part is finding the supplies! I love this how-to from Tate tots and Jello. She even shows you how to make your own wicks! Make sure you have enough oil for the amount of candles you’re making. If you’re doing a larger batch, try using an essential oil diffuser like this one. The Aromatherapy Candles have a calming scent that will help you relax and get ready for bed. Just about the first thing that every person comments on when they walk into our apartment is our excessive collection of candles. C and I collect candles and spend an exorbitant amount on candles each month. Watching us in West Elm is like watching a kid in a candy store. We’re always trying to figure out how we can buy another candle. And every time we do, I make a mental note to myself that it’s time to find another place for all of these candles. We are never going to burn them all! But then we come home and light one, and before you know it the whole collection is burning. This particular candle is one of my favorites because it smells like the beach (I love the beach).  Today I’m sharing my best tips for making homemade aromatherapy candles (or essential oil candles because that’s pretty much what they are!) as well as ways you can avoid making the same mistakes I have the habit of making every single time. Essential Oil Candle Making: Step-by-Step Making candles with essential oils is surprisingly easy. After you’ve gathered your materials, the process will take you less than 10 minutes. STEP 1: Let’s Talk Soy Wax In terms of ingredients, these scented candles are fairly easy to make. All you need are soy wax flakes and essential oils (plus your tools). Why soy wax? Well, it's naturally made and very environmentally friendly. It's also odorless, non-toxic, biodegradable and clean burning. And did I mention that soy wax candles burn for up to 50% longer than paraffin wax candles? So the candles are not only good for your health but also for the environment!  Soy wax will melt fairly quickly and is easy to manage, however you will want to use some kind of disposable device for stirring as it sticks to everything and is difficult to remove once it’s set. I use a wooden chopstick that I can toss once I’m done the candle making process. Step #2: Placing the Wick Begin by taking your wick and placing it in the center of your candle mold. To make sure that you’re centered, use a marker to mark the spot where you want to place the wick. Next, gently press the wick into the center of your candle mold until it touches both sides. This will ensure that you have an even burn across all parts of your candle. STEP 3: Add your Essential Oils Aromatherapy candles are effectively essential oil candles. If you’re curious to learn more about aromatherapy check out this post on Essential Oils 101. You’ll need to add about 80-120 drops of essential oil. I recommend using a concentrated oil blend. I used do TERRA’s Deep Blue for my candle. It’s an amazing blend of essential oils that really does make you feel relaxed and calm. You can also add in some dried herbs or flowers if you like. Just be sure to use non-toxic herbs, dried flowers or even citrus peels! Again, refer to this post for more information about the benefits of different essential oils. Feel free to mix-and-match too! Just add the oils directly to the melted soy wax. Step #4: Prepare Your Wax Melts Next, take your melting pot and add a few drops of your scented oil to it. Heat up your oil until it is melted and then add in your wax melts. The wax melts should be evenly distributed across the melting pot, but not piled on top of each other. When the wax melts are fully melted, you can then begin to pour them into your candle mold. The pouring process will be easier if you use a metal funnel that has been pre-soaked in hot water for at least 10 minutes. Make sure that you avoid using plastic funnels as they can easily melt under the heat of the wax. Step #5: Placing Your Wax Beans Take your wax beans and begin to gently place them around the wick. Try to avoid overfilling your mold as this will make it difficult for you to remove your candle later on. Be sure that you place the wax beans into the center of each well so that they can be covered by the hot wax and burn evenly. Step #6: Enjoy Your Candle! After your candle has been poured, let it cool for a few hours before using it. Once you’re ready to use it, simply place the candle in an area where there is good air circulation and light the wick. The wick should be trimmed to approximately 1/4 inch before you light it up. If you have any questions about trimming the wick or anything else, check out our candle making tips page. Candle making is an easy process, and it’s a great way to save money on candles.

What Angle Should I Cut My Hair For Layers?
Compared with messy and frizzy hair, layered hairstyles will make people look more three-dimensional and more refined. Get the layered hairstyle you want at home by reading today's article. Prepare your hair for layering Start with clean, damp hair, as it is more difficult to control the length when using wet HD lace wigs. Use a wide-tooth comb to comb through any tangles in your 40 inch hair so that the layers you create are neat. Collect your hair on top of your head Hold the ponytail at the top of your head with the flat area towards the back of your head where you can balance the comb. Bend down, turn your head upside down, brush your skunk stripe hair forward, and use your hands to form a ponytail on top of your head. Secure it in place with a hair elastic and turn the head up. Make sure your hair is smooth along with your head; Any clumping or tangling of parts can lead to chaotic stratification. Move the elastic band down the ponytail Holding the ponytail in one hand, slide the elastic band down with the other until it's a few inches from the end of the ponytail. If you want subtle layering, slide the elastic down so that only an inch or so of hair is left in the ponytail. For more intense layers, leave a few inches of hair in the ponytail. To prevent it from turning into a mullet, slide the elastic until a few hairs slip out at the nape of your neck. Cut off the end of the ponytail Fasten hair in elastic to prevent it from loosening. Use a pair of sharp clippers to cut off the hair above the elastic band, then shake it out. If you have thick hair, you may need to cut off more than one part of your ponytail. Just be sure to cut each section to the same length, just above the elastic. Be careful not to cut at an Angle or let the scissors slip. Cut the uniform layer directly. Check your layers This method creates some layers of the face frame in the front and longer layers in the back. If you want to adjust the length of the layer, carefully cut out individual hairs using scissors. Make sure you take your time and carefully cut your hair to reduce the chances of making mistakes or cutting too much. If you find it troublesome, you can choose high-quality human hair layered wigs at West Kiss Hair to take advantage of the mid-year sale and Independence Day events.
