If the Daily Mail is to be believed, Kate Moss has joined Topshop exec Sir Philip Green and Simon Cowell in their new entertainment venture—but this time, it's her music world cred that they're after. As we reported earlier, the titans of retail and entertainment are joining forces to create a series of entertainment properties complete with their own lines of spinoff merch. Aside from acting as a "figurehead" for the fashion side of the business, the paper reports "[Moss] will also be involved in finding and signing new bands and promoting them...She has a big network of people they have no access to. In return, Kate will net a share of the profits. Her entire fortune would double within a year bringing her up to the £100 million mark." [Daily Mail via Vogue UK, Previously]
