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.”

Hip-Pop diva Nicki Minaj is once again making waves, this time for an interview she gave to New York Times magazine.
While discussing the rap diva’s recent run-ins with singers Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift, writer Vanessa Grigoriadis took a wrong turn when she asked Minaj if she secretly thrived off of the drama. Nicki responded by ending her interview early, but not before strongly giving Grigoriadis a piece of her mind.
