Nicki Minaj Deletes Twitter Account

The pressure of having a #1 album and worldwide smash single is finally starting to take its toll on Nicki Minaj.

After accusing one of her largest fansite’s of leaking her “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” album prematurely, Nicki decided to delete her account after blocking the offending site from following her and then having her timeline flooded with disapproving fans wanting an explanation.

The site, NickiDaily.com, was soon closed down and the owner has deleted their Twitter account as well.

Like I said previously, despite having her latest project debut at #1 in the U.S. and around the world, Nicki is apparently none too pleased with the first week numbers, which are significantly lower than they were for “Pink Friday.”

To make matters worse, the album has gotten so-so reviews and is expected to take a 75% dip on this week’s chart.

And though that is somewhat normal for most albums, expectations for Nicki’s second project were extremely high, leading many to speculate that her first week sales would be as high as 500,000.

Despite falling extremely short of that estimate, Nicki can take solace knowing that her “Starships” single continues to climb the charts both here and abroad.

The song has gone platinum in the U.S. and has gone top ten in several countries, including the U.K., where her ‘Roman Reloaded’ CD just debuted at the top of the charts, the first time ever for a solo female rap artist.

  1. That’s 11 million potential buyers that her “team” could have coddled on Twitter rather than her personally dealing with them. And I though it was snippets leaked rather than the entire album? Hmm. This could have been handled behind the closed doors of Twitter, but eh…. Good luck NM

  2. Nicki Minaj did not have 11 million actual followers. Many of those accounts were dormant, created by rabid fans wanting her to compete with the likes of Britney Spears and Lady Gaga, who also have millions of non existent followers.

    You also have to remember that many of those followers are spam accounts. Accounts set up that send out tweets with Nicki’s name attached, hoping her fans or Nicki herself will click on them.

    Lastly, there are ppl like me, who keep up with what she is doing but who are not fans and don’t buy her music.

    Twitter is not an accurate representation of how popular an artist truly is.

    If Nicki or her label thinks she actually has 11 million followers they are delusional.

  3. The latest CD is GREAT. She knows her fanbase and have broaden them with this CD. I am pretty sure Nicki can handle the pressure.

  4. Deleting her account made her look weak and flighty. She’ll look as nutty as Chris Brown when she eventually opens it back up, when I am sure her label is already pressuring her to do.

    BTW, I understand more and more every day why Beyonce refuses to tweet. As cool as Twitter can be, it can also open up stars to a great deal of harassment.

  5. Nicki needs to get over herself and stop having these temper tantrums. Her music is not that good anymore. She should’ve kept it for promotion.

  6. Sista:
    Thank “God” or whatever it is that makes us appreciate this world for you, the truth as to how corrupted the musical system is revealed.Although your insight/information is just one example as to how some of these “people” are maintaining or even get their positions, falsely.
