Nicki Minaj has made a major career move. According to Vogue, the 34-year-old artist has inked a modeling contract with Wilhelmina International, Inc., joining the agency’s celebrity division that includes artists like Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato, and Shawn Mendes.
Of course, Nicki is no stranger to the fashion world or modeling. The Pinkprint rapper has starred in campaigns for Adidas Originals, MAC Cosmetics, and Roberto Cavalli. She’s also become a Fashion Week staple, often spotted in the front row at some of the biggest and most prominent runway shows.
“I love the synergy between my music and how it inspires my fashion. My message is always celebrating your own style,” Nicki wrote on Instagram. “I’m thrilled and honored to have signed with Wilhelmina. They get me.”
The news comes shortly after Nicki reached another career milestone. Last week, it was announced she had surpassed Aretha Franklin for the most Hot 100 songs by a female artist in the chart’s history.
