Nicki Minaj took aim at a hater, or haters, in a cryptic series of tweets on Saturday. The rapper wrote to her 18.5 million followers, “There will always be someone, somewhere in the world trying to steal your joy.” She added, “You hurt ppl everyday but it’s ok cuz they’re celebrities right? It’s ok cuz they’re rich right? Elevate your minds.”

She then wrote, simply, “It’s you,” before tweeting, “Go ahead and laugh.” The last message was accompanied by an Instagram picture of this saying: “Blessed are the weird people, the poets & misfits, the artists, the writers & music makers, the dreams and the outsiders, for they force us to see the world differently.” Minaj then posted pictures of her fans holding up her new Pinkprint album.

While it’s not entirely clear whom Minaj is singling out for attacking her, the rapper has been in the middle of a very public falling out with ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels in recent days. She’s also been the subject of bogus rumors, including one that Gossip Cop busted claiming she had been punched in the face by a girlfriend of Meek Mill. That NEVER happened. Last weekend, Minaj released her emotional, 16-minute “The Pinkprint Movie,” essentially a cinematic music video for three of her new Pinkprint album tracks.
