nicki-minaj-album-father-and-lil-wayne-brbie-lil-kim-drakeNicki Minaj, who deleted her Twitter account earlier this week leaving her 11 million followers in the lurch, may be making a comeback to the social networking service sooner rather than later.

On the U.K.’s “Graham Norton Show” (via MTV) Minaj explained the real reason why she abandoned the service. Turns out it wasn’t just a knee-jerk reaction to her songs leaking online.

“A voice in my head told me to delete my Twitter and that’s what I did,” she says. “I had 11 million followers and I hope they will wait for me.”

Twitter, by the way, allows users a 30-day grace period to reactivate deleted accounts, so it’s a safe bet that Minaj — or her PR team — will get her account back up and running before a month is out.

Plus, Nicki hints pretty strongly that she would return:

“I don’t know yet, I’m thinking about it,” she says when asked if she’ll be back. “I miss my Barbz, please bear with me.”
