And the love affair continues. On Nicki Minaj’s latest album, Pink Friday 2: Roman Reloaded the bewigged rapstress shouts out Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour:
When I’m sitting with Anna, I’m really sitting with Anna / Ain’t a metaphor punchline, I’m really sitting with Anna / Front row at Oscar de la Renta, posture / Ain’t a b*tch that could do it, not even my imposter
And even more recently, fashion fanatic Kanye West boasted about his fashion exploits on his new track “Theraflu”, from dinner with Anna Wintour to racing go karts with Anja Rubik:
Dinner with Anna Wintour, racin’ wit’ Anja Rubik / I told you ma’f****rs it was more than the music / In the projects one day to Project Runway

Can you think of any other good lines?
