Pop star Nicki Minaj has revealed plans to write two books as part of her dream to run an empire.

The 29-year-old 'Super Bass' hitmaker, who already has her own nail polish range, a shade of MAC 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, reported MTV online.

"Working on two books actually," Minaj tweeted.

The singer also said that 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.

"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," she said.

"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'," she added.
