Rapper Nicki Minaj, 29, flew into a rage on Sunday and deleted her Twitter page, leaving millions of her Stans steaming mad.
Nicki became enraged when the webmaster of www.nickidaily.com, “one of her biggest supports and fan sites,” posted leaked a music sampler of Nicki’s latest CD on the website — “and Nicki went ape shit and had her followers bash her” on Twitter.com.
In response to the bashing, Ashland says the webmaster abruptly shut down her website and deleted her Twitter account. That’s when Nikki’s followers — the sane ones — started bashing Nicki for being an online bully.
An exasperated Nicki tweeted: “Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good fucking bye,” — before deleting her Twitter account.
This all goes to show you how immature and irresponsible some celebrities can be. I mean really, a superstar like Nicki should know that bullying — whether online or in person — can drive an unstable person to commit suicide.
And, let’s face it, most celebrity Stans are a bit unstable.
Sure, leaking unpublished music is frowned upon by the industry, but Nicki’s album, Roman Reloaded, is already in stores.
And it wasn’t as if the NickiDaily Webmaster leaked the entire album online before the album was released.
Minaj’s sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, did not do nearly as well as her debut album Pink Friday. Nikki had predicted that Roman Reloaded would sell more copies than Pink Friday. But despite a solid marketing campaign engineered by her record label, Roman Reloaded sold only 253,000 copies in its first week in stores, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
