Nicki Minaj has teamed up with Versace for the launch of their brand new collection for high street retailer H&M, which has successful stores right across the globe.



MTV News caught up with Miss Super Bass on the red carpet of the launch last week, and here’s what she said: "It's something that as a little girl, growing up in hip-hop, you never really think you'll get a chance to — I never thought I'd get to model for Versace, you know what I mean?"

She said: "It's just a big deal because they've been clothing the hip-hop generation for a very, very long time. Adding: “Whether we could afford it or not, we wanted it."

Donatella Versace herself told MTV News she was flattered by how right-now rappers and pop stars like Lady Gaga, Big Sean and "fantastic" Nicki continue to embrace the brand.

She said: "I feel all the artists like Gaga and Sean ... are people who like to dare and to take risks, and it's the same in fashion so that combination works."
