Nicki Minaj is not playing any games when it comes to her money! The Leader Barb had to put designer Giuseppe Zanotti in check after he created a line of shoes named after her (23 pairs of sneakers to be exact) but did not give her any of the profits. To add insult to injury, when Nicki tried to reach out to his PR team, they wouldn’t take her call.

So Nicki went to Twitter to let her barbz know what was really up.

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.”


Nicki continued to prove her point.


With the help of her barbz squad, Nicki’s hashtag (#Giuseppewhatsgood) quickly went viral.

Still not able to get a follow up from Giuseppe, Nicki teased about settling the beef in the ring like Chris Brown and Souja Boy.

Nicki did receive a bit of backlash from the public to which she replied,Women are always shamed by others when speaking up in the work place.That’s why women cont. To earn less. Jada spoke up & Oscar’s madeAchange.”

She added,Scarlett spoke on her pay vs. her male co-stars & was shamed by other women as well. WakeUp! This is our work place! Just like u have yours!” .


Nicki was stating facts, especially just weeks from having the biggest women’s march in history.

It wasn’t about the money, it was more about respect for Nicki. She asked Giuseppe to donate her portion of the profits to St. Jude’s Children Hospital.

Way to stand up for yourself Nicki! #GiuseppeWhatsGood?!
