Blimey... Nicki Minaj has revealed that she once used to burn through an astonishing $50,000 a month in accessories.

The star tells US Vogue this month that she had a habit of stocking up on the best designer gear she could find.

''[At one time I was spending $50,000 a month on] Giuseppe, Versace, YSL, and Fendi shoes," she said. "And I bought tons of Louis Vuitton bags. When you're a young girl from Queens, you're going to stock up on those bags.''

But she doesn't just splash the cash on herself - she's been known to treat fans as well.

She explained: ''I went to Negril [fancy restaurant] the other night, and I brought, like, 10 of the fans who were waiting outside with me, and bought them all food!''

The 29-year-old 'Starships' singer hasn't always been adventurous with her fashion expenditure, however. Says she: ''I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady - pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life.

"She once did my makeup - I had never seen myself made up before. I didn't want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl.''
