The `Super Bass` hitmaker - who already has her own nail polish range, a shade of M.A.C. lipstick and is planning a fashion line - is to turn her hand to a new venture and has revealed to fans she now wants to add author to her resume.
Asked if she would ever consider writing a book, she tweeted: "Wrkng on 2 books actually...(sic)"
Nicki has admitted she has set her sights on expanding her career beyond music to create an "empire" that would rival hip-hop mogul Jay-Z, who is involved with a number of ventures, including a basketball team, clothing line and nightclubs.
She told Allure magazine: "I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of. So that`s why I`m only about to put out my second album and I`m already thinking about this.
"I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria`s Secret fashion show. He said, `Congratulations on all your success.` And I was like, `Yeah, I`m coming for you. I`m coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.` "
