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.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
