The Apology Round Up: Meek Mill & Taylor Swift Take The(ir Own) High Road

The shade has been lifted! After much Twitter beefing, T-Swift and Meek Mill apologize.


After a week of feud-filled tweets, ‘shade-ful’ reactions and genuine moments of laughing at someone else’s mishaps (thank Gawd it wasn’t you, right!), the white flags have been drawn.

Yesterday, country-pop queen Taylor Swift apologized to rapper Nicki Minaj after their series of tweets on Tuesday led to a brief but highly publicized Twitter beef. The “Clean” singer explained that she felt attacked by Minaj’s tweets and consequently, misunderstood what her point was. Two days after the feud began, Swift tweeted, “I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ.”

In response, the “Starships” performer accepted Swift’s apology, even going so far as to call the 25-year-old popstar to work things out. In a recent Good Morning America appearance, Minaj stated,

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. We spoke for a long time, we were cracking up on the phone, and it’s over, guys. I would love to work with her.

Another round of apologies was made this week―this one involving Minaj’s beau, Meek Mill. Earlier this week, the “Monster” performer called out fellow rapper Drake on Twitter and alleged that the “Started from the Bottom” performer did not write his own songs.

Of course, there were many reactions in the Twitterverse, most notably among them, Drake’s producer and long-time friend, Noah “40” Shebib, the rapper’s friend Hitman Holla and immediately after, Drake’s solidly classy response: “I signed up for greatness. This comes with it.”

On Wednesday night, Meek finally apologized during a performance with girlfriend Nicki Minaj, however, the apology was made to Minaj for how he was “getting all crazy” on social media. In the video posted to UPROXX, the 28-year-old rapper stated, “I want to give a special apology shout-out to Nicki Minaj for my crazy ass going crazy on Twitter,” and explained that he was “upset as a fan” that the verse Drake gave him for the track “R.I.C.O.” was not written by the “Take Care” rapper. Still, the “Young & Gettin’ It” rapper added, “Shout-out to Drake. Let him be great in all the mother—ing lanes that he’s great in.”

That’s one way to apologize.
