Donatella Versace Talks Biggie Smalls
For the December/January 2011-12 edition of Interview Magazine, Nicki Minaj sat down with Donatella Versace to talk about one of the brand’s biggest supporters: Biggie Smalls. Known for dropping the brand’s name in several iconic verses, it seemed only apropos for Versace to speak about the iconic emcee. Check out a choice excerpt below and be sure to pick up a copy of Interview when it hits newsstands.
I think Biggie was amazing. He came to my shows in Paris many times, and we’d see each other often. He always used to talk so nicely about my family. I think he was so smart, so intelligent. He had such a mind. So I loved what he was doing and how he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think he was giving people a way to know about Versace—I do think a lot of people started to know about Versace because of him.
