Uh-oh. It sounds like Nicki Minaj's breakup album The Pinkprint was not the last time we would hear about her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Safaree Samuels. Samuels just released his own record about Minaj and their 12-year relationship on iTunes. The song describes cheating, the feeling of being invisible with her, and the fact that the pair never had a child together. As can be expected, the "Bang Bang" rapper was not pleased. According to the New York Daily News, Nicki Minaj told off at Safaree Samuels on Twitter in a flurry of late-night tweets that have since been deleted.
The rapper's alleged tweets included messages such as, "Took a person with me to fame & fortune. These dudes leave their girl in the hood. Tell ppl the truth or you will b doomed” and, "Enough with the pity party. Just live your life." The "Bed of Lies" performer also added that she was "in love with meek," referencing Meek Mill, the rapper who she is currently dating. Yikes.
Though it may sound like the Queens native had completely lost her cool, she seemed to take a warmer approach after the alleged posts were deleted, tweeting, "Making a 12 yr relationship work at such young ages? We're BOTH the real MVP. things got rocky at the end but we had a GREAT run. #B4Ujudge."
While it's good that things have calmed down a bit on her end, this is likely not the last we'll hear about the ex couple's saga, but there is something we can take away from this drama: celebrity or not, it's best to think before you tweet.
When you have particularly strong feelings about anything, especially if they are feelings of anger or sadness, it is understandable that you want to let people know how you're feeling. And living in the digital age, it is tempting to want to explain your feelings on social media. But if Minaj really did write these tweets and then delete them shortly after, it's clear she wanted to use more of an olive branch approach later on. Similarly, you might end up changing your mind about what you want to say about a specific situation after you have cooled down.
So, next time you feel ready to wear your heart on your social media sleeve, read over your 140 characters one more time before you click "post." You'll probably be glad you did.
