Camilla Belle has finally gotten her revenge on “Better Than Revenge” singer Taylor Swift, and like everything this week, it revolves around Nicki Minaj’s beef over not getting a VMA nomination for Video of The Year.

As Gossip Cop reported, after the VMA nominations were announced on Tuesday, Minaj ranted on Twitter about “Anaconda” not receiving a Video of the Year nomination, griping that if her video featured “women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.” Swift, who was nominated for her “Bad Blood” video, featuring slim women, took it as a personal attack and tweeted at Minaj, “@NICKIMINAJ 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.”

That opened the door for Perry, reportedly Swift’s nemesis and the subject of her song “Bad Blood,” to tweet on Wednesday, “Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman.” Enter Camille Belle, who was the subject of Swift’s song “Better Than Revenge” after allegedly stealing the singer’s then-boyfriend Joe Jonas. On Thursday, Belle retweeted Perry’s message, adding, “Couldn’t have said it better” (see below).

Of course, as Gossip Cop noted, Minaj later clarified that it was not about Swift. Still, Swift tweeted the following apology: “I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki.” While the two women (and others) all made peace, clearly Perry and Belle have used the opportunity to pile onto Swift.

As you’ll recall, the lyrics of Swift’s song “Better Than Revenge” include the lyrics, “She’s an actress… better known for the things that she does on the mattress… Stealing other people’s toys on the playground won’t make you many friends… There is nothing I do better than revenge.” And though Swift is now friends with Jonas, and even had him over to her Rhode Island home for July Fourth weekend, Belle seems like she still wants revenge. Tell us what you think about the actress’ tweet?
