Nicki Minaj Deactivates Twitter Account
Twitter and social media in general are great for hearing what an artist, from his or her perspective, is up to. And, it’s turned into another source for journalists. On the flipside, Twitter, even more so than Facebook, is a breeding ground for spats between artists and between their fans, for stars to talk trash about their label (looking at you, 50 Cent), and for accounts to be hacked or set up without authentication (Gary Glitter).
Nicki Minaj is the latest star to experience the negative side of Twitter. Yesterday, the “Roman in Moscow” rapper deactivated her account after fans from site Nicki Daily reportedly leaked parts of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded before the release date. Before wishing 11 million fans farewell, Minaj wrote:
“And that’s exactly why I’m paying the barbz DUST right now! And deleting my twitter. Smdh – don’t cry 4 me argentina
“On 2nd thought I’ll just follow a new set of barbz. The ones I follow r very mean and ratchet. *side eyes them*
"Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f*cking bye."
Since Minaj deactivated her account, Nicki Daily also closed up shop. If Minaj is to go back to Twitter, she has 30 days to reactivate her account, or it will be permanently deleted. Do you think she’ll be back?
Even if a fans’ site leaked part of her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded did well on the charts, going directly to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and knocking down Madonna’s MDNA. Sales went better than predicted, with the album moving 253,000 units instead of the projected 215,000 to 235,000.
