The eclectic Kelis continues her foray into fashion, with it today being announced that she has signed to London’s Next Models – one of the most renowned agencies in the industry.

Full story after the jump…

London, United Kingdom (22nd October, 2010) – Interscope Recording Artist Kelis and Next Models have today confirmed they have exclusively signed the singer to their Special Bookings department of Next Models London.

The deal signifies a further move for Kelis into the fashion world where she is currently seen as a fashion icon, known for being ahead of the curve and being fearless with her style. Kelis is embraced and loved by some of the biggest and coolest designers around the world, signing with Next is a natural progession.

Melanie Maw, Head of Branding at AAB, Kelis’ branding agents who secured the deal with Next, said, “Kelis has established herself as a fashion icon, alongside an amazing music career and it’s fantastic that in Next Models we have found an internationally like minded agency that understands and believes in her vision.

    It’s great news. I just think Kelis should go back 2 R&B music. Dance/House/Techno don’t suit her at all.

    Well she can’t sell music so she might as well do this with her time… but isn’t she kind of “senior” to be just entering the modeling industry? lol

    This is great for her! I’ve been a fan since her debut and wish her continued success.

    To @ Elvis Madore – did you listen to FLESHTONE at all? I was thrown by it at first but I like dance/house/techno music so the album has definitely grown on me the more I’ve listened to it.

    Let’s be real how lucrative is this modeling deal for Kelis 31 year old washed up career? While other female artists are building entertainment empires Kelis is signing contracts with a modeling agency. But you people say she is a head of her time, it seems to me that she is late as usual! Kelis is so whack and LMAO @ her bcoming a middle aged model.

    Wow @ the last few comments – 1st of all since when is 30 or 31 considered “middle aged” – will be LMAO if & when some of u reach that age to see how u define it!

    Also with the modeling gig – I don’t think she’s going to be walking a catwalk or anything but seems like they can get her gigs to be the face of a brand & I don’t see anything wrong with that…Halle Berry is 43 yrs old and still a spokesmodel for Covergirl so….what’s your point?

    Halle Berry is succsssful and beautiful and very well known to everyone in the world and Kelis is just plan old Kelis not successful, not beautiful and not well known across the globe. Besides AAB is the branding company she is signed to to get her endorsements not Next modeling, they are just a modeling agency who can at the most get her in magazines and catwalks. Please Kelis will never have the career of a Halle Berry and how stupid of anyone to even put Halle in the same sentence as dirty Kelis. Halle at 43 looks younger than Kelis at 31!

    Fleshtone is actually a good album, it has good beats as well as great lyrics so maybe her album sales were a “flop”, but Kelis most definitely isn’t. Congrats Kelis!

    There are too many negative comments about Kelis. What has she done to any of you? It’s like the haters are trying to knock down a woman that has never done anything wrong to any of you, she has never spoken badly about the artists that steal her swag and style, and just continues to build her resume by just being herself.

    Kelis is a FAILURE. Her delusional stans are happy about her signing a modeling contract because she is a FAILURE in the music industry. You Kelis stans are pathetic just like she is. Fashion Icon please Kelis is a joke and so is this post. Gaga does not have to sign a modeling contract or have an employee of AAB branding company quote her as a “ICON” because her millions of fans & the fashion world already recognize her at that. Kelis at the age of 31 becoming a model is nothing but a JOKE!

    How is Kelis a joke? She’s been modeling since 1995. Why do y’all hate her? What has she done to you? She divorced a cheating husband , released a GREAT album, ( may not have sold well in the US) but in Europe , Kelis is HUGE. And she’s “Still” on tour!!! She’s making money, and doing what she wants. I don’t see how that’s a failure. Sounds like a hell of alot more than the majority of these artists these days. You people amaze me, you’ll bash Kelis but praise Rihanna, that proves the music industry isn’t even about music anymore, jus looks and glam. But a REAL Artist like Kelis who has been in the game for over 10 years, and who has been modeling since, does something and it’s bad. f*** the haters, y’all are too stupid.
    GO KELIS- do yo thing!!!

    ^^^This album flopped in Europe as well so how HUGE can Kelis be. She will continue to be on tour because that 360 deal with Interscope requires her to make them their money back from that flop. LOL @ anyone believing that modeling agencies were knocking done the doors looking to sign Kelis her branding agency sought the companies out and pleaded for a deal but since her stan pointed out that she has been modeling since 1995 (15 yrs) I guess she has already FAILED at modeling as well!.

    ^^^^ @Paul M . All of what u just typed were lies….., interscope isn’t forcing her to tour… Dumbass!! I can’t take you seriously. You just love to hate her. That’s your choice. I doubt that you’ve respectfully heard all her albums ( Kaleidoscope, Wanderland, Tasty, Kelis Was Here, & Fleshtone) so that’s probably why u dislike her. But trust me Kelis is still on high fashion magazines , that’s more than I can say for other artists. (she was jus in Italian Vouge & Trace) that’s top selling mags. But ok, I’m not a delusional stan, your just a delusional hater. After all the s*** u talking passes, Kelis will still be touring and modeling. Get over yourself. She’s an icon, been here longer than Gaga, and still is doing avant-garde fashion. Take a seat fool.

    @Paul M

    One more statement , when she made Fleshtone , she wasn’t even in the studio, she was pregnant in her own home studio the whole time, so that lie u jus said involving Interscope was stupid and childish , if she flops, WHY ARE ALL OF HER TOURS BEING SOLD OUT SHOWS. I could care less if she flops, but don’t make yourself look hypocritical. She’s obviously doing something right, if she has such a large fan base who are buying her albums across the world. You really don’t kno anything about the music industry. If you put anything on the radio and replay it constantly of course it will sell… But without proper promotion,, it will flop, doesn’t mean it’s not good work, but U.S markets don’t wanna hear a real artist ( Kelis, Janelle Monae, Lauryn Hill) they want young autotuned crap ( Rihanna, Ke$ha, Etc). Gain some knowledge before you judge an Album you’ve never heard or a person you’ve never meet. :)

    LOL Wackness – right name for u sweetie – wack! My point is the previous posters calling Kelis washed-up & middle-aged. Because people like u don’t seem to have a lot of references of older women (much older than both Kelis & Halle) who worked as spokesmodels, I used Halle. And just like we all have an azz-hole, we each sure as hell have an opinion and in MY opinion, Kelis is far from ugly and at least is WORKING to sustain her career and not sitting at home waiting on a check from Nas!!

    She signed to their bookings department. That means they are going to land her print and commercial gigs. AAB is a branding company that works with major corporations like the deal she signed with SONY UK last month for their 3D department they are launching. FYI- most actresses/singers who work with fashion/beauty companies are also signed to an modeling agency. That’s how they book jobs and further their brands..got it.

    You can hate on Kelis or discredit her all you want. She is an international star whose had a 12 year career and is still touring and getting jobs. And major companies obviously respect her brand. Get it Ms. Rogers.

    Not to mention she has been in Vogue magazine numerous times and just recently had a spread in Italian Vogue before she was signed to this modeling agency. Isn’t like Italian Vogue this seasons ANTM grand prize? She might be 31 but getting older is beautiful and young people should admire that. Werk bish!!

    A lot of the things you assert happens to be astonishingly accurate and that makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light previously. This particular article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this topic goes. Nonetheless at this time there is actually one point I am not necessarily too comfortable with and whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the issue, allow me observe just what the rest of the subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.
