Nicki Minaj has been in the news a lot lately. Just two days ago she had a highly publicized Twitter battle with one of her fansites, Nicki Daily, for leaking her music online. She tweeted “Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f-cking bye,” just before taking down her profile. She has 30 days to return to Twitter before she permantly loses her 11 million plus followers. This definitely smells like a publicity stunt.
But what’s sadly real is Nicki’s family drama. Her father, Omar, recently came out to the media to say that he is deeply saddened by Nicki’s claims that she was abused by her father as a child. He says he stories of trauma and his drug use are false and hugely exaggerated. Omar says he’s still very proud of Nicki and loves her very much, but doesn’t want to be thrown under the bus for her fame.
In the midst of her personal drama, Nicki’s career is still making amazing strides. Her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded debuted at #1 in the U.S. and the UK. In the beauty world, she is currently the face of MAC Cosmetics’ ViVa Glam campaign, launched a line of O.P.I. nail polishes and just announced a new fragrance she is set to released for all her fans.
