Don’t hate Keri Hilson because she’s beautiful, ya’ll! The “Pretty Girl Rock” singer is clearly doing big things even if it has been a while since she’s put out new music, because world-renowned modeling agency, Wilhelmina International, Inc, just signed the 5’9″ star as one of their new models. Hilson is joining a long list of beauties who are also singers, including folks like Fergie and rapper Iggy Azalea. According to Juicy Magazine, Hilson is still working on music even as other opportunities open up, putting together her third album as we speak.

But don’t get it twisted, Hilson is signed to the artist management division, so you won’t see her walking the runways or anything like that, which she made clear on her Twitter page:

I am not a model. Nor do I aspire to be a model. I’m signed to @WilheminaModel Artist Mgmt division. Very excited about our new venture!!

But under their management division, Wilhemina will try and secure a bevvy of things for the talented chick, including the opportunity to be a spokeswoman for different products (like how they got Iggy Azalea to be the face for House of Holland Eyewear), they will try and get her endorsements, product lines, sponsorship and more, so expect to see her face just about everywhere very soon. With her height and her frame (which she can thank years of swimming for), I have a feeling Keri will get a lot of work and make a lot of moves. Either way, it’s a great look for her as a black woman and as a musician, because we know in the industry it’s more about pushing yourself as a brand since albums are NOT selling. But anywho, congratulations Keri, aka, Ms. Keri-Ba-By!

    Yes, she’s gorgeous.

  • Shaybaby

    Great she found a gig she can actually do. She would be a better model than a singer. Take note Ciara, Ashanti & Cassie…

  • BeeCee

    Good for her!! *waits for Beyonce stans to start hating* lol

  • Suchalady

    Enter the rabid Beyonce stans to find something negative to say. Modeling would be great for her and she probably doesn’t need to put out new music frequently since she’s a successful songwriter. Good for her.

    They must be on a tear; apparently they just signed Breezy as well…

    (things that make you go “hmmmm”…..and “what the what?”)
