On owning the most expensive shoes in the world:

“Obviously I’m an over-the-top dude, and I wanted to stunt. You win $1 million on America’s Got Talent if you win the show, so I was like, ‘Yo, I want to have a million dollars on each foot.’ It took a year and a half to make these, so I’ve been planning for so long. The goal is to sell them and donate all the proceeds to charity.”


On buying multiple pairs of Concord 11’s

“I had to get three or four pairs, because I knew these were going to be classics.”


On his gilded NBA All-Star Celebrity Game sneakers

“I didn’t score no points, but I looked good & that’s all that matters.”

“They’ll take something that’s standard and throw some high fashion on it.”


On designing a pair of exclusive Wild ‘N Out Jordan’s

“I would ask [MJ], and he would tap me on my head and say, “Maybe one day.”

Nicki Minaj stays busy on the cutting edge of fashion and music, and the recent release (on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim no less) of “Don’t Hurt Me” shows that she will stay that way for some time to come.

Created in conjunction with DJ Mustard, Jeremih, and Nicki Minaj, the video is a contrast of the supernatural relationship between predator and assumed prey, in scenarios that are bit more “sensual” than one would expect.

It’s not just playing with your food
