Sad news for the Barbz and Kenz (Nicki Minaj’s
craziest most dedicated fans). After Twitter drama with some fans, Nicki officially has deleted her Twitter account, leaving 11 million followers to mourn the loss on the social network.
The story goes that Nicki found out that her biggest fan site, Nicki Daily, posted songs from her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded before the album’s release date. She blocked the site’s twitter which resulted in beef between the Barbz with some staying with Nicki, and others taking the side of the site. After getting some mean tweets from various Barbz, Nicki left the Twitterverse, but not before she put out some final tweets:
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*
Exactly. Posted leaked music! *deletin twttr* RT @NickiBarbPink: @NickiDaily kno why they got blocked.
Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f-cking bye.”
No word if this is a permanent delete, or a mere deactivation. Celebs quit Twitter all the time, and end up back on within a week. Look at Chris Brown.
The site Nicki Daily deleted their twitter and put up a CLOSED sign on the website’s front page. The site also plays the track, ‘Dear Old Nicki’ when visited. The song, which Nicki penned herself for her first album Pink Friday, is a letter of sorts from the “commercial Nicki” to her old self where she asks the “Old Nicki” to come back in her new famous life.
I feel for Nicki, though. I’m not her biggest fan, but I still like a good amount of her music (though recently it’s been slacking….but that’s a whole other post). It’s very hard to have to deal with superstardom like she has, because every thing she does, every step she makes is under watch. The fame must be getting to her, especially with her own fans seeming to turn on her. Hopefully she can pull it together, and stay focused on her career.
