(NEW YORK) — It’s safe to say that Nicki Minaj probably doesn’t have any monetary concerns right now, thanks to the success of her album Pink Friday, not to mention her deal with OPI nail polish. But is she spending her money wisely? Well, she confesses to Vogue magazine, that at one time, she was spending $50,000 a month … on accessories.
“Guiseppe, Versace, YSL and Fendi shoes,” Nicki confesses. “And I bought tons of Vuitton bags. When you’re a young girl from Queens, you’re going to stock up on those bags.” When it comes to clothes, though, Nicki isn’t nearly so free with her cash. “If I can combine designer things with other things, I’m a happy camper,” she says.
Nicki says that unlike some stars, she doesn’t plan to live high on the hog and not give anything back. She tells Vogue that she has plans to start “an enormous foundation to nurture girls,” adding, “They hang on my every word, so I tell them, go to school, be ambitious. The worst position is to be financially dependent on the man.” And even though Nicki tells Vogue that she sometimes imagines being a stay-at-home wife, cooking dinner for her husband in a “bikini and high heels,” she says that in real life, “I could never be that girl!”
