Nicki Minaj’s Clothing Line Will Be “Sexy” — Including Animal Print!

Starships are meant to fly and Nicki Minaj was meant to design?

The American Idol 2013 judge launched her new clothing with Kmart on March 1 — and the styles sound like they'll be a little different than what you might expect.

"With me doing the clothing line now, it's like I definitely don't want people to think, 'Oh, well, she's only going to have crazy stuff in her line," she tells Us Weekly. "I'm doing this for women in general, to feel beautiful and sexy, and all of these dresses that I've been wearing lately, any woman can wear it and feel confident."

Nicki says she's offering her clothes at a reasonable price — but she doesn't want them to look like they cost a reasonable price.

"My big thing is that it cannot look cheesy and cheap, and that’s what I want to give my beautiful Barbz," Nicki explains to Dr. Jays. "I’ve been doing a lot of dresses lately, and I feel like I’m more confident when I look like this."

"It doesn’t have to be super over-the-top sexy," she continues. "Some of the dresses I’ve been doing lately are completely covered — like the sweater dresses — and my fans have really responded to it."

What else can we expect?

“I tend to love animal print, and my fans seem to love that, so I’ll definitely have some animal print in there,” Nicki reveals. “I love pops of color. Anyone that knows me, knows that I love color. So I definitely want to have some neons in there that just make you feel bad."

And don't worry — there will be plenty of crazy accessories.

"We’ll be doing the new signature hats I’ve been doing and boots and legwarmers and those types of things," she adds. "I’ve always loved humongous earrings, bamboo earrings, so I also want to do that.”

The line will be available this fall at Kmart stores and online at

So you might not be able to rap like Nicki can, but at least you can wear big ol' earrings like she does.
