April 15 found fans in frenzy when Nicki dropped off the face of her Twitter throne (via MTV). The disappearing act occurred shortly after beef with a fan site that allegedly posted illegal music of hers, but Nicki says that wasn’t her reason for leaving.
“Let’s set the record straight because a lot of times I don’t speak on things, but I don’t want people to think that’s why I deleted my Twitter,” she told Capital FM. “I just needed a moment to myself. Because some page posted things about me — I mean, I’ve read horrible things about myself. I wouldn’t delete my Twitter over that.”
But now the Barbz can breathe again because Nicki has returned to Twitter, but not without a loss of followers.
“I had 11 million followers and I hope they will wait for me,” she said during a U.K. interview.
At MTV press time, Nicki had only had 125,000. As of now, she has 1,800,000.
We’re betting it won’t be long before she hits that 11 million mark again. Until then, welcome back, Queen Minaj. Your Twitter kingdom has missed you. —Stephanie Long
