Nicki Minaj Didn’t Expect to Spark a Crocs Craze

Nicki Minaj had no idea hot pink Crocs would be flying off the shelves thanks to her.

Earlier this week, the rapper shared a snapshot of herself wearing not much more than a pair of the comfortable clogs, which were accessorized with bedazzled charms, including one of the Chanel logo.

According to reports, the Instagram look led to people rushing out to find a pair for themselves — “pink crocs” and “nicki minaj crocs” were breakout searches that day, Google Trends said — and 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?” one fan asked Minaj in a tweet on Saturday (May 15).

“Absolutely TF NOT. LOL,” Minaj replied.

While answering some questions from her Barbz, Minaj also offered 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,” she revealed, “and no I’m not gonna upload them.”

See some of her Saturday afternoon tweets below.
