Nicki Minaj Signs Modeling Contract With Wilhelmina
Nicki Minaj is no stranger to the spotlight.
She's made a name for herself in the music industry as a badass rap goddess -- but her journey certainly isn't stopping there.
The "Regret In Your Tears" rapper is about to pursue a new career that has nothing to do with music, and we're in full support of her new endeavor.
There's no singing involved and certainly no concerts -- but don't panic! She's not going anywhere.
Nicki's embracing her inner fashionista and becoming a model.
DUH, right?! She's drop-dead gorgeous, guys. We should've seen this coming.
It's been reported the multi-talented pop star recently signed to Wilhelmina International Inc. as a model, and we know she's going to rock it.
Get it, girl.
It's been reported by Vogue that Nicki's beyond excited to dive into the fashion world.
During an interview, she said,
I love the synergy between my music and how it inspires my fashion. My message is always celebrating your own style. I'm thrilled and honored to have signed with Wilhelmina—they get me.
Although the career path is new for the singer, she definitely isn't camera-shy.
Nicki's already been shot by ground-breaking photographers like Mario Testino and Vinoodh Matadin, and she has an Instagram following of 77.2 million people.
Bill Wackermann,Wilhelmina CEO, is excited for the singer to join the modeling roster.
He told People, "We're thrilled to work alongside Nicki Minaj and her team. She is a style pioneer and icon."
Nicki couldn't wait to share her new move with her fans on Instagram.
Late Tuesday night, the rapper posted a screenshot of Vogue's headline on her.
She captioned it, "Oh yea. That too. (Emojis) thank you #Vogue for breaking this story. Honored to be @wilhelminamodels.
Nicki's schedule is about to get very, very busy -- but there's no doubt in our minds that she can't pull it off.
We can't wait to see your new work, girl!
