Nicki Minaj Feuds With Shoe Designer Giuseppe Zanotti

Nicki Minaj definitely wants to know “what’s good” with Giuseppe Zanotti not answering her phone calls. The NY-native recently went on social media to disclose her feelings of why Zanotti hasn’t reached out to her or been answering her calls.

She then took things over on twitter and blasted the designer.


The rapper has for years worn footwear by the Italian footwear designer, has quoted his name in her lyrics and says he told her she inspired his “Nicki” shoe designs. Most of the brand’s products for women bear female first names.

Nicki has never officially collaborated with Zanotti on a collection and has been trying to arrange that to happen, but says his reps aren’t taking her people’s calls. Zanotti and his company have not commented.

Zanotti has collaborated recently with stars such as Jennifer Lopez and Zayn Malik on shoe collections. In a 2015 interview with Footwear News magazine, the designer said, “I love a lot of celebrities, especially from the music world: Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys and Kanye West. They are style icons and have great talent. Their music entwines with art and entertainment, so they can be inspirational for a designer.”
