Nicki Minaj has confessed that she never intended on starting up a Crocs Craze, let alone having the site crash to her detriment.
Earlier this week, the rapper shared a snapshot of herself wearing just a pair of comfortable clogs, which were accessorized with bedazzled charms, including one of the Chanel logos. This led to people rushing out to find a pair of the ‘outfit’ for themselves.
According to Google Trends, “pink crocs” and “Nicki Minaj crocs” were breakout searches that day, which resulted in a 4,900% spike in sales of pink Crocs. The retailer’s website apparently crashed too.
“Did you expect Crocs sales to soar after posting your picture?” A fan asked Minaj in a tweet.
“Absolutely TF NOT. LOL,” Minaj replied.
While answering some questions from her Fans, Minaj also shared a fun fact about her verse on her team-up with Lil Wayne and Drake, “Seeing Green.”
“Honestly I kept coming back to it for like a week. I have like 7 diff versions of my verse on that song…and no I’m not gonna upload them”, she revealed.
While Crocs have been making a steady comeback, it was Nicki’s crocs that broke the internet. Questlove wore a metallic pair to DJ the Oscars, and Justin Bieber is a recent collaborator — Nicki introduces a whole new vibe with her charms.
