Nicki Minaj Tops Twitter Tally Twice, Removes Eminem As Most Followed Emcee

6e820566cdf2dee47aec0faf7491dd80 Nicki Minaj Tops Twitter Tally Twice, Removes Eminem As Most Followed Emcee

 

Seems another accolade has made its way onto a growing list held by wigged wonder Nicki Minaj.  As has been making its rounds around the net, the Harajuku Barbie has indeed dethroned Hip Hop hitmaker Eminem as Twitter’s most followed rapper.

Details after the jump:

Despite the popularity of Rap royals Jay Z, Kanye West, and others, Michigan emcee Eminem still maintained a longstanding reign over the social media outlet…until last week.  When this story first broke (days ago) it appears Em fans wouldn’t take the defeat lightly and, in a matter of days, took the ‘Relapse’ rapper’s following from 8,160,476 to 8,254,664.  In response, the Barbs and Ken Barbs lifted Minaj’s Twitter tailgate (as of today) from 8,175,598 to 8,276,598.  As both tallies are growing steadily, its anybody’s guess how long Minaj will maintain this honor.

In related news, Nicki is undoubtedly hoping that her faithful fanbase will be similarly supportive of her upcoming artistic ventures as this news comes days before the reported unveiling of Minaj’s new video ‘Stupid Hoe’ – the first lifted from her forthcoming ‘Pink Friday:  Roman Reloaded’ LP.  The video is said to be one of two offerings preceding the album’s Valentine’s Day release.

    so we are now honoring ppl for having more twitter followers in such a specific category? ppl get honored for the most poinless things now a days. “u sneezed n covered ur mouth lets give u a trophy.” i mean come on. it’s getting old n corny n real accomplishments r losing their importance. n as we can see, have a billion followers means nothing ie soulja boy has how many followers n his last album sold how many copies?? just saying. lets honor ppl for actually doing something but good job for being interesting enough for all those ppl to follow u, i guess.

    So…….a bunch of teenagers, fresh off Winter break made several double accounts to follow Nicki just so she can gain a title thats about as relevant as being BGC’s Sexiest Over 30? Well…..when you put it THAT WAY, I guess this IS means to celebrate.
