After a banner year filled with everything from performing at the Versace for H&M launch party to collaborating on a line of nail polishes, Nicki Minaj doesn't seem to be slowing down.

Billboard reported that Mattel will make a special one-of-a-kind Nicki Barbie doll and auction it off next month. The proceeds will benefit Project Angel Food, which provides and delivers food for people with or affected by HIV and AIDS. But that's not the only trick that Nicki has up her sleeve.

Mark Cheatham, a music agent at CAA who works with Nicki, said, "With her team, we're all working and in discussions on a fragrance deal. We're also in discussions with different apparel companies as well. We're expecting that will make her a mainstream brand." He added, "She's very hands-on, detail-oriented and has a specific vision of what she wants to see."

Nicki's line with OPI comes out in January, and her new album drops on Valentine's Day. So it doesn't look like she'll be taking a break anytime soon.
