ZOMG a thousand times and a then a little louder for emphasis. The worlds of fashion and music are SUPER COLLIDING in an explosion of neon palm trees, flying hearts, and what we assume will be a man in a crazy vivid suit and heels next to a young lady we can only imagine will be spilling her fashionable lady assets all over some INSANE studded leather dress that is two sizes too small. YOU GUYS, Nicki Minaj and PRINCE are performing at the Versace for H&M launch party in NYC next week!!! This is mayyyyyjah. This is giant fireworks and confetti showering down from the sky MAJOR. H&M usually launches its collabs with a party and then red velvet ropes to hold back the throngs of shoppers the day the collection is officially on sale. But THIS is an EVENT. An event that may or may not see them—GASP—singing together.
There's no official word yet about a duet, but our fingers are crossed because a Prince and Nicki partnering may make the world explode. Donatella Versace told WWD, “To have my friend, the great, the amazing, the one and only Prince, and the extraordinary Nicki Minaj both perform at the event, will create exactly the feeling of joy and glamour I want this partnership to express.” Oh, we're feeling the joy and GLAMZ, Donatella dahhhhhling. We can't wait to see what Nicki wears (maybe this bright purple body-con dress or the acid-green hearts dress with fringe sleeves?) and if Prince will, in fact, wear his signature high-heeled booties. We also can't wait to fight our way into this thing.
