Nicki Minaj is now a proper model. The Queens rapper has signed a modeling contract with Wilhelmina. 

Reports Vogue:

As a singer, songwriter, actress, and hip-hop queen, Nicki Minaj has spent her career juggling a multitude of roles, and her latest move brings her into yet another creative sphere—modeling. Signing to Wilhelmina’s celebrity division, Minaj becomes the latest star to add professional posing to her repertoire. She has already served as the face of brands such as Roberto Cavalli, and has been shot by boundary-pushing photographers including Mario Testino and Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. By joining an agency, she opens up the door for even more opportunities.

See, all that thirst trapping did have an endgame. But the thirst trapping will probably continue.
