Nicki Minaj Signs with Wilhelmina
Despite her recent setbacks, it appears Nicki Minaj is still very much a winner. After having her Freeform comedy Nicki scrapped by the network, the hip-pop diva has seemingly bounced back stronger than ever, securing a recent slew of victories- including becoming the most charted female artist in history. Nicki followed up that triumph earlier today by announcing she’s also been signed to the Wilhelmina Modeling agency; calling it “another dream come true.”
“I love the synergy between my music and how it inspires my fashion,” Nicki told WWD magazine. “My message is always about celebrating your own style. I’m thrilled and honored to have signed with Wilhelmina — they get me.”
Nicki’s modeling aspirations come on the heels of her hiring stylist Maher Jridi to revamp her image. The two recently took Paris Fashion Week by storm and have been collaborating on various looks for Nicki’s recent video shoots with Drake, Lil Wayne, and Future. There are also rumors Nicki’s planning to launch a new fashion line now that her deal with Kmart has expired.
Nicki joins fellow singers Keri Hilson and Ciara who are also signed to Wilhelmina’s celebrity division.
