Rihanna, Nick Minaj Making Waves Outside Their Lanes


If there’s one thing celebrities have learned from star athletes such as Michael Jordan, Serena Williams and Magic Johnson is to use your star power to build your empire.

Johnson, Williams and Jordan are into restaurants, real estate, sports franchises and more.

And it looks like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, both hot stars in the music biz, are making their moves outside of the box as well.

Earlier this week, Minaj signed a modeling deal with one of the top agencies in the world – Wilhelmina. And Rihanna is set to be honored for her fashion instincts by the renowned Parsons School of Design.

Minaj confirmed the news on Instagram Tuesday. “Oh yeah that too,” she captioned a photo of the Vogue story. “Honored to be at Wilhelmina.”
