Nicki Minaj Quits Twitter After Fansite Leaks Music
Nicki Minaj has gone silent.
An unlikely statement, yes, but true nonetheless, at least as far as her Twitter presence is concerned. The rapstress wished her 11 million followers good-bye (with more pointed words to a select few) on Sunday (April 15) after engaging in a battle with fansite Nicki Daily, which had started to leak her songs online.
After a spirited back and forth with a group of followers she called "very mean" and gave cyber-stare downs, she eschewed the idea of simply blocking certain members and instead shut the whole thing down.
"Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f*cking bye," she tweeted just before taking down her profile.
Minaj has 30 days to come back or face her account's permanent deletion -- and the loss of 11 million members.
Last week, her sophomore album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," debuted No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 253,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. "Roman Reloaded" follows her debut album, "Pink Friday" which climbed to No. 1 on Feb. 2011.
