London: R&B singer Nicki Minaj has revealed she used to splash out a staggering USD 50,000 a month on designer shoes and bags. The `Super Bass` singer admitted she went a bit overboard when she first became famous and blew a large chunk of her earnings on accessories, reported a website.
"At one time I was spending USD 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," Minaj said.
The singer is known for her eccentric dress sense but admitted she wasn`t always so adventurous with her style.
"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."
