Nicki Minaj paid tribute to Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech for the Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist award at the American Music Awards last night in Los Angeles.



Speaking backstage Nicki explained why: "At one point when 'Pink Friday' was released I wasn't even going to put out 'Super Bass' right away and then she tweeted about it.

"She was like, 'I love this song', and all of her fans went and bought it. She started rapping it and then Selena Gomez started rapping it, and it just became kind of like this little phenomenon.

"I was like, well, I have to thank her because if it wasn't for her just being open and honest about a new song she liked no-one would know… her fanbase would not have known about 'Super Bass'."

Following Minaj’s thank you Taylor went on to tell her Twitter followers that she had been "blown away" by Nicki's tribute.
