“Art and style has always played a significant role in my life — it’s evolved with me throughout my career,” said Brown in a statement obtained by Celebuzz announcing his signing. “I’m so happy to join the Wilhelmina team, which has countless successes in the industry, to explore this new avenue.”
Taylor Hendrich, the director of Wilhelmina Men added, “We recognize that Chris Brown is not just a voice, a dance or a lyric; he is a multi-faceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand into these industries.”
No word yet on details of Brown’s new modeling career, but the “Don’t Wake Me Up” singer is about to embark on his Carpe Diem world tour, which kicks off on Nov. 17.
In even more firsts for Brown, he also just launched the Symphonic Love Foundation which focuses on giving back to communities in two focused areas: art and love.
But Brown fans shouldn’t worry. He’s not trading the studio for the catwalk. His duet with ex-girlfriend Rihanna, “Nobodies Business”, was released online Thursday, where the “Diamonds” songstress can be heard singing about “her baby.”
“You’ll always be mine / Sing it to the world / You’ll always be my boy / I’ll always be your girl,” Rihanna croons.
