Naomi Campbell has a new interview with Elle Magazine as part of their February cover issue, and she discusses becoming a mentor on ‘The Face’, her infamous cell phone throwing incident, and other modeling shows.
When discussing ‘The Face’ and becoming a mentor on the show, she says, “When I first got Yves Saint Laurent couture, I didn’t know how to take off a cape. I would ask Katoucha and Dalma – the real divas of the runway – ‘Can you show me?’ I’ve never been afraid to ask for help… I care for my girls [on the show]. Every single one of them. I’m not here to put anyone down."
She also talks about other modeling shows, saying, “I don’t watch the other reality model shows. I’ll never have anything to say. If you ask me about Tyra Banks, I’m proud of her as a woman of color. She’s given girls opportunity, and God bless her."
Finally, she talks about her infamous cell phone throwing incident, saying, “I’m never gonna get away from it. It’s part of my history. I was remorseful and regretful. I’ve served. I did that time. And I never want to be in that position again."
