Nicki Minaj is not one to mess with, because her legion of fans are ready to pounce on anyone who besmirches her name. That was recently the case with Jessie J, but she apologized in a hurry.

Minaj was seemingly upset after Jessie J said that she “asked” to be a part of Bang Bang. That seemed like a shady remark to Nicki that she needed to request an appearance on a track which also featured Ariana Grande.

Jessie J took to Instagram and she put that controversial fire out as soon as she could. While posting a live clip and some tweets she received, Jessie J also included a lengthy caption that apologized in a big way.

I respect you publicly being yourself @nickiminaj • So here I am being myself.

This is a video of me back in 2015 on stage taking the piss out of myself which is basically an hour of my set 🥲

It was made into a meme about 2 weeks ago. Is that what this is really about? And where this weird energy between us began?
Or maybe it was when you used me as a stair rail at the AMAs. That was also funny af 😂

If we can’t laugh in the lives we have been blessed with. What’s the point. It really isn’t that deep.

From the moment I met you to now I have shown you nothing but love and gratitude for how f***ing blessed I was to have you and @arianagrande who btw wrote Bang Bang with the insanely talented Max Martin which I found out today. Jesus. What a day. Sorry Ari. I never knew. Wild.

“I felt like I had won a competition” did back then and still do now.

I’m the first person to admit Bang Bang would NEVER have been what it was without you guys.

I’m sorry I got the story wrong all these years, I was told you heard the song and wanted to be on it by someone clearly gassing me up at the label. (Bless them and my naive ass) Thank you for clarifying I was wrong on that and Do it like dude 😂 Told me huh.

What a way for us to celebrate the 7 year anniversary of the song. 😩😂 Should we all go for dinner? No… Probably not right.. Too soon? Bang bang part two?… No…. Ok got it. Do it like a dude remix? Ok. I’ll stop.

Look, the song did it’s damn thing. I will never say you asked to be on the song ever again. Although all this drama means memes and man have the memes of me have kept me entertained all day. Swipe for a good old laugh.

Always love and light from me babes

The post has over 144,000 likes so far and that number is only climbing. It seems that fans accepted Jessie J’s apology. We’ll have to see how carefully she watches her words from now on.
