Nicki Minaj returns to Twitter, announces 'Starships' video release
Hip-hop superstar re-joins the social network after a brief but torturous hiatus
Rest easy, Barbz...she's back.
"*salutes the nation of Pinkslam* *hugs the barbz* *kisses the barbz*," wrote Nicki Minaj a few hours ago, in the first tweet following her agonizing week-long hiatus from Twitter. Though apparently the de- and subsequent re-activation of her account caused the hip-hopper to lose the majority of her several million followers on the social network, on last check the tally was moving up into much healthier territory, with over 4.4 million devotees present and accounted for and the rest, assured the rapper, soon to follow: "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 ;)".
Phew! Were you as worried as I was?
