Nicki Minaj

Rapper Nicki Minaj is using social media to gang up on shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti over lack of compensation for her Giuseppe Zanotti 'NICKI' sneaker collection.

Minaj, 34, took to the Internet to wage a small war with Giuseppe Zanotti using the hashtag #GiuseppeWhatsGood.

Nicki Minaj

The Italian shoe designer recently named a "capsule collection" for Minaj, comprised of 23 sneakers. Zanotti's sneakers can retail for $3,000 a pair.

Minaj was initially thankful for the honor, but when she learned the shoe designer gave Jennifer Lopez her own capsule collection, she started making phone calls -- and getting no callback.

"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,' she tweeted.

She followed up with another tweet: "Recently when he gave other artists capsule collections, my agency reached out and was told they’re not taking our call."

On Instagram.com, she wrote: "So tired of ppl taking my kindness for weakness. Free... @giuseppezanottidesign read your comments then hit up your accountant my nig. U not takin WHO call sir?????"

Minaj threatened to send her lawyers after Giuseppe. But Nicki's shoe collection was a symbolic gesture, not a shoe contract.

Apparently Minaj is going broke and needs an infusion of cash after her mansion was burglarized earlier this week.

Some insiders whisper that the burglary was staged for an insurance payout.

    ALL SHE CAN BE MAD ABOUT IS HER NAME USAGE...IF SHE OWNS THE RIGHTS.

  • Renee26

    Ok, so is she the only Nicki in the world now?? IJS I hope she had some sort of involvement in the process in order to expect a some coins from the sales. I seriously doubt that she had any involvement without a contract being in place.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Folks should own the rights to their given names as well as their nom de plumes. I'm not mad at Nicki for wanting compensation for shoes inspired by and named after her, especially when she has been wearing this man's designs.

    In my one brief retail stint, I answered the phone at the store and the shoe designer married to one of the owners of the company called. Within a few months, there was a shoe bearing my name, which was misspelled (as people usually misspell my name). The least she could've done was send me a pair of the shoes since she clearly liked my name and used it.

    Kate Spade later went on to name a pair of shoes and misspell my name the exact same way. They've actually been reissued and are on sale today. Protect your brand, even when you don't know you have one.

  • nucynu25

    Am 50/50 with this . On some of her tweets Nic said that Zanotti told her himself he was inspired by her so in that case run her coins but their has to be a better way to handle this . Secondly, she ain't the only Nicki soooo...

  • Taylordanes

    so send your lawyers and stop being and internet thug ...

  • Lenina Just Lenina

    Of course they gonna be duckin her when they know she wants to talk compensation and lawyers....they already made the kicks. Now they curbing her. Lots to learn here.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Big money lets the lawyers battle it out.... I've never heard of the law office of Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and Associates

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    She didn't get the fine print.....shoe was named NICKI--NOT NICKI MINAJ. She may have inspired it, but they made sure to NOT name is her signature name.

    And what happened to letting the attorney's handle this? IG though, Nick...really? Yeah, they are going to take you serious.

    Exactly. He named the shoe after her as a symbolic gesture; she didn't help design the shoes nor did she sign a shoe contract. Now she's broke and she wants money she didn't earn. That's black people for you.

    In researching......Nicki cannot compare her "inspired shoe" to the GiuseppeXJennifer line.

    This! Karl Lagerfeld admitted decades ago that his Chanel gold chain designs and the trademark gold chain interwoven with leather on the quilted Chanel bags are inspired by b-boys and b-girls in the 80's. He saw them breakdancing on the street, wearing their big gold chains. These elite Caucasian women are wearing these mounds of costume jewels and big, chunky gold belts, courtesy of styles WE created. Hip-hop as a culture influences so much. I use the term "influences" loosely, because people literally copy what we do, say and wear and they capitalize on it. That needs to stop.

    BUT....."black folks" need to stop jumping up and down for every bone thrown and do their homework. And master the English language....You inspired this shoe, so I am going to use your Name on it" does not translate to I am going to pay for the use of your name. She should have requested that he add MINAJ to the shoe name and BOOM...she would be good, as that name is trademarked. Gotta know the games they play and the rules.

  • stav

    Right ! The bottom line is anyone or anything can inspire someone, that doesn't mean they are entitled to compensation. She's always screaming out luxury brands when she raps, however she doesn't get paid for that free advertisement for those brands. I'm sure Mr. Zanotti felt she should be honored with him saying he was inspired by her, however he wasn't that inspired to write up a contract and let her in on some dollars!

    Damn. That's sad. Tell her we are praying for her and her family.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    I've worked in the legal field damn near as long as some of the people posting in the comments have been in the world. None of us are privy to discussions, negotiations, etc. that may have taken place. Therefore, I won't comment based on what is or isn't.

    I don't know anyone else who goes professionally by the name 'Nicki' but Onika Miraj aka Nicki Minaj. She has been wearing Giuseppe Zanotti designs since she became famous. Designers always align themselves with celebrities because that's publicity. That publicity is typically compensatory. So, to suggest she didn't have "paperwork" or her ducks weren't in a row, so to speak, is presumptuous. But folks are entitled to assume.

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    That's cultural appropriation. People can wear bamboo earrings. Black folks didn't invent the style, unless I'm missing something. We popularized it. And as far as the "hood" goes, that's just short for 'neighborhood.' We all come from some sort of "hood."

    You stay getting riled at folks when it isn't needed, why. All I said is that black folks, in general, should stop accepting things without doing their homework. Then I went on to give a subtle way she could have ensured that she could claim the shoe as a trademark.
    You don't know me to know if I have legal background or not, so are you NOT making an assumption? Imma go ahead and let you be great, cause I already know this will become the usual "I am a victim and always attacked" mode that you spit to people.

    If you have an issue with me or my comments you have options. You can block me. You can ignore me. I'm "riled up," but in reality, I'm unbothered by you and your repeated replies. You're the one who appears to be "riled up." I'm taking care of business, as usual.

    Public figures are always targets for exploitation of their names and images. This isn't anything new. If the Nickis you know have tens of millions of followers and are internationally known, perhaps they should form Voltron with Onika and file a class action lawsuit against Mr. Zanotti. Until then...

  • Peter Piper ATL

    STAGED. Nicki is starved for attention, and feel she's being forgotten by the public. Thus the latest "news"--Minaj and Drake "reuniting" with Young Money. Chile, whatever. Its amazing Nicki's career has lasted this long because she's really only a mediocre talent who has ghostwriters galore.

    I don't think she needs the money, she just likes to control things and have her way. And she shouldn't be surprised she's not getting what she wants from this designer because Nicki is disliked among some folks that are essentially on her payroll. She's known to have a very stank attitude pretty regularly.

    I keep hoping any female rapper will break through, allowing fans to completely get over this raggedy wig wearing buffoon.

  • Libra80sBaby

    GUHL!!! EVERYBODY know what "Hood" means when ppl say it. Dont be actin new. JEEEEZUZ

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    Why does she believe you are getting "riled" up? Your comment came off as objective and knowledgeable, with contextual background information. Who is this poster?

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Okay, Fendi!! you are still going on and on. It was never that deep, you took it there.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Welp .... Reality will slap her in the face ... Every single time... Not a fan at all.. Never will be...

  • Keesh5000

    Save it Piper!! Nicki has been around long enough to sit down somewhere the rest of her life and we still havent seen a female RAP artist do what she did and have the longevity to match it. Not in our lifetime....remember Hip Hop started is most of our life time already. She broke the mold. Name one other female Rap Artist to do what Minaj did or on their way to doing and I will debate ya on it. Not a big Nicki fan, but she made a nice Chess move somewhere, somehow and it worked.

  • Keesh5000

    I didnt even read it all... Sowwy Piper (Luh yu)

  • Coco

    She's so dumb for doing this. Other business folks wouldn't want to work with her after this. She's immature and disrespectful.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    LOL, it was a lot, but was pretty accurate, so I had to give props where there were due.

  • Sucker Free

    ? ????

  • Libra80sBaby

    Agree! I swear that cartoonish chit she used to do got on my LAST nerve. She does act like her chit dont stank. Like girl bye. You dated Meek Mill....

  • missmiami305

    He has some nerve. That child's mother should send her brothers to kick his arse!

  • nucynu25

    Remember , yester tuh damn day when I said stop assuming ppl or not knowledgeable bc of light hearted comments ..??This the type of malarkey I was referring to.

  • Keesh5000

    I dont think he should have put them up. Not for me...I just would not wear them joints.. like them clear boots... Its a No for me https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/295d97b3cd5b88e328ec096d55bdad8906df83da446d9c599fd6afef9037eb83.gif

    Oh no!! Lord I pray for her and her families' strength through this time. We love you!!

    Ikr. That's some ish only a Kardashian would do. Black folk know better

  • nucynu25

    Agreeded ... but I won't act like if somebody tells me " Hey , Nuc you dope . You inspire me .. you may be my muse for a collection ." Maybe st that point it's just small talk but if a yr later a collection of " Nucys " drop I might feel a kinda way .

  • Keesh5000

    Swear to Lawd I thought Nick and MiMi wasnt gonna fight fight!! Giggles

  • nucynu25

    Understood Aunti ...but what if they called it the garden & used your name for likeness .Business I get it but I see how she could feel ...it is unprofessional tho .

  • Keesh5000

    Did he not give her some free shoes or something. I dont think she should have throwed the whole relationship with the shoe guy away....

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I am more offended in the fact that I ALWAYS say I have no issues with her and am one of the rare ones who DIDN'T!! My comment wasn't personal nor was it an attack on Nicki (and if it were so what?!)

    She always on here with her "Know It All" self righteous font, throwing jabs and then getting upset when folks call her on it. You skimmed my comment, but then wrote a whole dissertation based on the same assumptions you accused someone of making. FOH, I got time today!!

    Anyhoo, Hey Love!!!

  • nucynu25

    Everybody cool till they disagree ..

  • Keesh5000

    Nope! WE got a new word...Its called Altrnative Facts! Google it baby https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/96b01c80b7fda05f08c645de37151e601779fccb2b1e45709b1e397e8fed1a04.jpg

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    I think he gave her plenty of shoes, so to act out over this sneaker/shoe was a dumb move...I would have stopped wearing the shoes or sent my attorneys to A. write a more specific contract or B. get one if none were written. BUT, I definitely would request that they use my full trademarked name on any and all products hereafter. Now she may lose other products because of her unprofessional actions.

  • Keesh5000

    Hey booski .

  • Chardonnai

    Its amazing Nicki's career has lasted this long because she's really only a mediocre talent who has ghostwriters galore.
    ---------------------------------------------------
    THAT PART!!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Nope we can be cool after we disagree, but you not going to come at me sideways, when it wasn't necessary.

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    I think that's why she linked back up with lil wayne and drake. Unless that was the plan from the beginning.

  • Chardonnai

    You dated meek Mill....HAHAHAHAHA

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    Thought my name was odd, until I found 2 more folks with it. And yes, one of their father's name was Nicholas - called Nick - for short and so her momma spelled it that way with an 'I".

  • Chardonnai

    She broke the mold

    Remy Ma getting outta jail didnt help either. Remy is a REAL MC with jail cred. Thats hard to compete with.

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    It is over, as far as I am concerned. On to the next post....when Sandy decide to post it.

  • BlueHousen

    Did they say she was to be the "one and only" entertainer to represent the brand. If not, then they need to cut her lose. Same if J-Lo starts acting out when someone else is brought in. So stupid. Nike has dozens of athletes repping for them. So do other brands.

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    Missy Elliott???

    Forgot all about that. Remy has been on FIRE since she got out!

    Sorry not sorry but those high top sneakers are fugly! I cant stand when folks buy stuff just because its expensive/designer, those were NEVER cute lol.

    I just said the other day, the industry will chew you up and spit you out! Use the hell outta you, then when you fall off, they don't want NOTHING to do with you! Feel bad for her, hopefully she made great investments.

    IDK, but thank you for understanding my perspective. I'm trying to get login info for my mom to pay a premium. I'll be damned, darned and everything else if I will waste time arguing with strangers over what I know to be matters of law. Law = my first love, since I was 5. We may go through a lot, but no one will ever be able to question me about my "man." ????

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Sis:

    I feel a way about "hood," "urban," "inner city" and "ghetto." We claim and wear so many titles that ain't even for us or about us. I wish we would stop. I'm not acting new. I'm being TRUE.

    My brothas and sistas on the Eastside are no less than the Caucasians on the Westside. They're actually more real/sincere. Some have long money and just don't want to be around a bunch of arrogance. But white and Black folks alike demonize them because of exterior appearance. I refuse to participate in that.

  • Reina1718

    Totally agree

  • Reina1718

    Right lol theres no coming back from dating meek mills lol

  • Reina1718

    Thank u! & better & wrote her own stuff, danced, could really sing.

  • Carolina Blue

    Hey lady

  • Carolina Blue

    Lmao

  • Reina1718

    The sad part is they want to see nicki's fake butt dancing around, saying the same lines about her private parts thats it. Remy is a beast & will get over looked cuz thats not what she's about

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    ^^ALL OF THIS.
    Ole girl has been on mute since Remy is back in town. She wants NO PARTS of that verbal @$$ault.

  • Reina1718

    Yup Rihanna too

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    True. I'm happy to see Remy carving a niche for herself w/Fat Joe. She'll never really get all the props she deserves, but she's cashing checks.

  • RationalThinkersUnite

    Yeah but now fake Butts are a dime a dozen, and she can't dance or perform. I think people want something new...or at least I hope they do :-)

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Technically it was inspired .... hell she didn't design nothing .... he may have just liked the name .... it's a popular name ..... the shoe would do better without her associated with her imo .... Manaj is not the move ... especially with her associations ..... it is what it is ..... she may want to worry about those legal fees with that brother js ..... I get inspired to name things all day ... Icky thinks the name is exclusive ..... ya know https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d5264c1ca98c6238ba7a0c7588728e9d863aecc626ae53462aede5391bbb5404.gif

  • MsPam

    She can answer the question to because she put up her old house to get that nigga out of jail. Her brother's a molester but she worrying about some damn shoes?!

  • AllAroundTheWorldSameSong

    What I have been saying!!

  • MsPam

    No she didn't but she's supporting dude and is quiet about the situation. Not coming out and expressing any sympathy for the young girl.

  • missmiami305

    Damn?

  • Renee26

    I think so too...she knows where her bread and butter was. Plus they have the plug on ghost writers (so I heard)

  • DivineMsM

    Yoni, send her lots of hugs and comfort, love and prayers. Her e-family is here to help in anyway we can.

  • jazmine

    Probably had no contract or agreement of any kind

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    So she took the pic with Drake as JLO already started her fake pr stunt that she has something going on with Drake.

    JLO won't do menage a trois scenarios. Especially when it has to do with her career. Nicki is learning the hard way what happen when you step on JLO's toes. Mariah started her year with bad luck.

    JLO's machine is definitely bigger.

  • HotChocolateHottie

    Sandra you're a genius.

    I'll add you to my list of the few black women I would invite to my home for tea.

    I'll add you too to my list of black women I would want to have tea with.

  • Taylordanes

    and thats her dumb ass problem then...stop IG banging lol

  • Yoni

    I sure will. Thing is, I'm going to be 3 hours away from her TOMORROW and won't be able to get to her.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Imagine the catfight if JLO and Nicki would work togheter on American Idol??

  • Yoni

    I sent her the messages.

  • Yoni

    I did. Welcome.

  • Yoni

    I did.

  • HotChocolateHottie

    Nicholas wouldve sat on JLO with her fake butt.

  • Yoni

    She knows.

  • jazmine

    Because if she did, taking her calls or not she would be getting paid. Period.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™
  • ebonics

    Da Brat, Lil Kim, Foxy Brown, MC Lyte, Missy, etc.. Nikki is a GIMMICK, and shes terribly whack. She didnt break no mold.. you trippin! Then again I appreciate, and listen to REAL hip hop not hip-POP.

  • Desiree Edwards

    those sneakers are ugly as hell

  • Desiree Edwards

    those sneakers are ugly as hell

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    But JLO knows the game about fakeness longer than Nicki. Mariah was nice to Nicki but I think JLO would've terminate her career. She collaborated with legends and can kill on the dance floor.

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Nicholas?? LMAOOOOOO

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Well thank you!! I love tea ?

  • shaylynnn

    This write up could've been about her sick brother.

  • S. Williams

    she's using her celebrity irresponsibly on this matter. next

  • Taylordanes

    right!

  • jade

    Yea but Remy is too hardcore to break into mainstream like Nicki did. I don't see Remy as a threat to Nicki, not because Remy is not a better rapper but because Remy's image is too hardcore and I don't see her moving past that urban niche.

    For most of these black artists to become really successful, the have to break into mainstream aka white people.

  • Michelle

    When you make money, be smart in what you do with it.

  • rachel

    Karma is truly a bitch. Safaree wrote and contributed to the building of her "empire" but she refused to compensate him and, apparently, blocked his efforts to advance his career... life in all of its glories.

  • Empress

    Is that the best way to address a branding issue? If they won't respond to you send in the lawyer, this makes her look immature. Talk to fans like that but not in the business arena, my God, "GiuseppeWhatsgood" sound like I sent my 15 year old cousin, fresh out of juvenile hall, into my old job to get my last check.

    Word on the streets is, The robbers also stole her butt plug - It took them four men and a wheelbarrow

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Nicki has a right to speak out, even tho, she didn't have a contract, and using the name Nicki isn't hers exclusively! But, you always have to negotiate what you want from any association, and she wanted nothing until she saw Zanotti roll out the red carpet for J-LO, and give her own capsule. She'll get a shoe deal now for sure from some big shoe designer!

    But, J-LO is a long established Fashionista, and hasn't been a chart-topping popstar singer since back in the day (Jenny On The Block). Her fashion sense and trending on red carpets has been as important to building her brand, as her actual work (acting, singing, dancing). So, I can see why he would give her own shoe collection in his line. He's been selling the Nicki Sneaker without a deal, so why stop now? It's not personal, it's business!

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    idk after seeing safaris on love and hip hop she might be justified on that one dude super corny and lame

  • Wakando Shamar Taylor

    yea thats cool and all but I blame him never mix business with pleasure he shouldve had something signed in place! instead he waited till she dumped and then started whining about his money! naw u get that paperwork straight off top I don't care what kind of relationship we in

  • the guest

    Thank you! Been thought how it's bad business for rappers to give designers free branding and promotion and advertising. Designers pay tv and movie producers for product placement but get shine from rappers for free.

  • the guest

    Still can't grasp how her vile brother was preying on kids. There's not enough love in the world for me to stand by, help, and defend a child molester. That was bad business for her. She should have distanced herself IMMEDIATELY at first accusation. But I think her brother has dirt on her so she had to help him.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    And i heard he owned a daycare. Smgdh. His sister is a SUPERSTAR! He could've gotten all of the world's most exotic ? off of her name alone but the sick bastard would rather violate a child. Smh
