“What the hell is going on?” Goldberg, 59, said. “Beyonce gets nominated and wins. Not that I’m putting Beyonce down, I’m not — I’m just saying that’s a full-figured bitch, I’m sorry.”

On Tuesday night, Minaj, 32, took to Twitter to bash the MTV Video Music Awards for only giving her three nominations — and shunning her from the Video of the Year category. (The noms included Beyonce, Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Mark Ronson, and Kendrick Lamar.) She called out the music industry’s race problem, which Goldberg clearly disagreed with.

“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” Minaj wrote at the time. “Oh but trust me. I’ll be on that stage to collect my awards for vid of the year. Feeling Myself & Anaconda.”

Swift, 25, thinking the message was directed at her, replied: “I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot. If I win, please come up with me!! You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”

The race argument carried over to Goldberg’s co-hosts, too. “We don’t always need videos where girls are naked that way,” Raven-Symone said of Minaj’s raunchy “Anaconda” music video.

Michelle Collins, for her part, leaned toward Team Nicki. She called Swift’s “Bad Blood” music video, which features several of the singer’s A-list pals, “a little bat mitzvah-ish.”
