Nicki Minaj is not happy with famed shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti after his brand named sneakers after her, but they won’t take her calls to collaborate.
There are 23 different sneakers named “Nicki” currently available on the brand’s website.
“This is wonderful. #GiuseppeZanotti seems to think it’s ok to name his sneakers after me but his PR says they won’t take our call. Lol,” Nickitweeted on Friday (February 3). “I met #GiuseppeZanotti years ago. At which time, he told me I inspired him to design a sneaker in my honor. Wore them on the cover of Cosmo. Recently when he gave other artists capsule collections, my agency reached out and was told they’re not taking our call. 🤔.”
Nicki wrote a lot more tweets in her rant and even started a poll to ask her fans if Giuseppe should run her a check.

The upbeat track follows the group’s – comprised of Diplo, Jillionaire and Walshy Fire – smash hit “Cold Water” with Justin Biber.
“Partynextdoor is a good friend of ours,” Diplo said in a statement. “We’re always working in LA when he is around and we’ve cut a lot of music and we really believe in what he does and his style. He came up with a great song. I’ve always wanted to work with Nicki as well, she’s on our short list. Of course this record… she just vibed with it, she loved the feeling and timing was right so we got her on it. So hopefully we can do a lot more with her next time, we’ve traded some music back and forth so hopefully we got some of that done.”
“Major Lazer is all about making the world smaller by making the party bigger,” added Walshy. “This felt like the perfect song to start off 2017.”
