Nicki Minaj Returns to Twitter, Announces ‘Starships’ Video Premiere

Nicki Minaj

She’s back! Nicki Minaj has rejoined her Barbz in cyberspace. The Young Money rapper returned to Twitter on Wednesday to reconnect with her fans and announce the premiere date for her “Starships” video.

The Roman Empire rejoiced as their leader sent out her first tweet since April 15. “*salutes the nation of Pinkslam* *hugs the barbz* *kisses the barbz*,” she wrote.

She had yet to restore her 11 million followers. “State of the Union: Dear Barbz, our nation will not be fully reinstated to 11 million for another few days as per @twitter. It takes time,” she explained.

Nicki debated whether to return to Twitter in the days following her departure. “A voice in my head told me to delete my Twitter and that’s what I did,” she told Graham Norton during her trip to the U.K.

She also announced that the long-awaited “Starships” video will premiere on Thursday at 7:56 p.m. EST on MTV. The video for “Right by My Side” featuring Chris Brown will be shot later this week.

    Glad to see Nicki Minaj is back on tiwtter and can’t wait to see the Starships music video .And for everyone who is saying she did it for a stunt you sound stupid because alot of artist have taken down there twitter and came back . We all do it we all get feed up with sites like facebook and twitter and take a break from them. What makes Nicki case any different. The album is gonna get more sales once she goes on tour and singles get released and music videos come out .

    Shocker -_- that she returns a day before the release of her starship video. She did all that because she wanted attention and everyone to talk about the reason she left which would instantly draw ppl towards the LP to see why it flop which reversely work. Got to admit it was brilliant but still i do not buy what she’s selling!

  31. PrettyLilKat

    Yea… there’s deff only 3 songs that I would listen to on her new album and they go hard af but its deff NOT Starships or that shit w/Chris Brown. I like Nicki but she is a CLOWN foreal and I think she’s better on features than she is on her own shit smh, but to each his own. It’s deff not nothin to get excited about, she came back to Twitter lol big whoop, Jay Z retired like 30 times and came back to sell records, the shit didn’t work for her *shruggs lmao
