Nicki Minaj used to spend $50,000 on designer accessories every month
The `Super Bass` singer admitted she went a bit overboard when she first became famous and blew a large chunk of her earnings on pricey bags and shoes.
She told US Vogue magazine: "[At one time I was spending $50,000 a month on] Giuseppe, Versace, YSL, and Fendi shoes. And I bought tons of Louis Vuitton bags. When you`re a young girl from Queens, you`re going to stock up on those bags."
Along with splashing out on the pricey accessories, Nicki also likes to treat her fans with her earnings.
She explained: "I went to Negril [restaurant] the other night, and I brought, like, 10 of the fans who were waiting outside with me, and bought them all food!"
Nicki, 29, is known for her eccentric dress sense but admitted she wasn`t always so adventurous with her style.
She said: "I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady - pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life. She once did my makeup - I had never seen myself made up before. I didn`t want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl."
