Rapper Nicki Minaj has been a style (and wig) icon for years. Now she’s officially a fashion model. Minaj just signed a contract with Wilhelmina’s celebrity division.

My message is always celebrating your own style.”
Nicki Minaj shows off some of that style in the new Gucci Mane music video, “Make Love,” which was released this morning. The song features a rap by Minaj, and she performs it in a bikini, while sitting on a unicorn inflatable. Watch it here:
In the rap, she criticizes her competition, saying, “To be the Queen of Rap, you gotta sell records, you gotta get plaques.” On top of all her previous achievements, this month, Minaj became the woman with the most songs on the Billboard Hot 100 ever. There’s no doubt she deserves that crown.
