Nicki Minaj has deleted her Twitter account on Saturday following a dispute with some of her followers, MTV News reports. The rapper was furious with the Minaj fan site NickiDaily.com for posting snippets from her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, claiming that they were "leaking" her music. Minaj blasted the site on Twitter, and then tweeted "Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good fucking bye" before deactivating her account.

NickiDaily.com has since shut down, with the owners stripping all content from the site aside from a loop of the rapper's song "Dear Old Nicki," in which she raps to her younger self. As can be expected, Minaj's legion of fans – known as Barbies – were distraught about her leaving the social media platform. The rapper has 30 days to reconsider leaving the site before the account is deactivated permanently.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
