Cara Delevingne Is Working On A 'Top-Secret Project' With Sinitta

Singer Sinitta Renay Malone is playing mentor to Cara Delevingne.

That's right, Simon Cowell's BFF is set to help the 21-year-old model earn her stripes in the music industry - because she's already mastered fashion and film (Cara appears in the British short film, Timeless, released later this year).


"It's a top-secret project and it's true that I'm helping her as a mentor," Sinitta said in an interview with the Evening Standard.

While she wasn't quick to reveal too much, the idea is that Sinitta will share what she's learned from her own 30 years in the music industry with the budding young talent. And she did learn from the best - Simon Cowell is the man when it comes to making it big (see One Direction).

Rumours that Cara was signed by his SyCo label soared when the model was spotted leaving his London office earlier this year. Clearly he's handed over to Sinitta to kickstart Cara's music career.

"It's about finding people who have natural passion," Sinitta explained, "and doing what Simon did with me: help them focus their creativity and ideas in a positive direction and give them an outlet."

Cara belting out some quirky lyrics and signature moves on-stage? We can totally see this happening and let's not forget that she's already played backing singer on Will Heard's 'Sonnentanz' (Sun Don't Shine) track. Watch this space.
