“But this is Miami, you can’t come to Miami and not show any skin. You gotta show something. If you’re all covered up in this heat, you’re gonna make me pass out out just to look at you. It’s sweaty in Miami-but the diamonds will keep me cool.” L’IL KIM

“Miami is just really fun whenever I go there. It’s like this post-apocalyptic Barbie world: everything is pink, and there’re palm trees everywhere. But then there are also all these people in crazy sunglasses, warehouses with sick parties where all the girls are covered in spikes and black leather. It’s a very weird place.” GRIMES

“I do sing in the car. I actually sing Britney Spears songs in the car – me and a close friend of mine. She lives in West Palm and I live in Miami, and when we’re going back and forth to see each other, we sing: ‘Oh, Baby Baby.’ We sing all these 1990s songs. We’re like two 14-year-old kids just having a good time.” KELLY ROWLAND

” I was going to Miami quite a lot at the time, speaking a lot of Spanish with my friends from Cuba – Lana Del Rey reminded us of the glamour of the seaside. It sounded gorgeous coming off the tip of the tongue.”
LANA DEL REY

“Second only to the sea, the Miami sky has been the greatest comfort in my life past 50. On a good day, when the wind blows from the south, the light here is diffuse and forgiving.” IGGY POP
