Nowadays, celebrity-designed clothing lines are run-of-the-mill within the fashion industry.

Take Nicki Minaj for example. As we reported earlier this week, the queen of self expression and personal style has partnered with Kmart to launch an urban clothing line. Some may say “dope move,” but she is Nicki Minaj; the epitome of sex appeal, Hip Hop and a self expressed label wh***. Not exactly the face or partnership that comes to mind for Kmart, one of America’s biggest family franchises.
