Nicki Minaj just signed a contract with Wilhelmina Models. That’s right. The rapper slash pop star is going to be a model.
But before you get too excited, thinking that the modeling industry is diversifying (lol), or fighting against ludicrous body standards (ha!), you ought to know that Minaj has been signed to Wilhelmina’s celebrity division. According to the Hollywood Reporter,she joins a roster that includes Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, and someone named Sydney Sierota.
Wilhelmina, a major modeling agency, will work with Minaj to secure editorial opportunities and fashion and beauty campaigns. It won’t be long ‘til we see Minaj plastered in the advertorial pages of Vogue, mouth agape and shilling some GOOP approved product nobody can afford. It’s going to be fantastic!
This is huge for Minaj, 34, as in recent weeks she's gone to great lengths to prove she's worthy of fashion royalty. Like the time she rolled up to Paris Fashion Week with one precariously placed pasty atop her left boob. Tres chic!
