Naomi Campbell strikes a fierce pose in a new interview with ELLE February, on stands 1/15. She dishes about her new show The Face on Oxygen, that cell phone incident, and her relationship with Tyra Banks.
On mentoring girls on OxygenÃ¢â¬â¢s The Face:
Ã¢â¬ÅWhen I first got Yves Saint Laurent couture, I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t know how to take off a cape. I would ask Katoucha and Dalma Ã¢â¬â the real divas of the runway Ã¢â¬â Ã¢â¬ËCan you show me?Ã¢â¬â¢ IÃ¢â¬â¢ve never been afraid to ask for helpÃ¢â¬Â¦ I care for my girls [on the show]. Every single one of them. IÃ¢â¬â¢m not here to put anyone down.Ã¢â¬Â
On the infamous cell-phone-throwing incident:
Ã¢â¬ÅIÃ¢â¬â¢m never gonna get away from it. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s part of my history. I was remorseful and regretful. IÃ¢â¬â¢ve served. I did that time. And I never want to be in that position again.Ã¢â¬Â
On if she watches Tyra BanksÃ¢â¬â¢ AmericaÃ¢â¬â¢s Next Top Model:
Ã¢â¬ÅI donÃ¢â¬â¢t watch the other reality model shows. IÃ¢â¬â¢ll never have anything to say. If you ask me about Tyra Banks, IÃ¢â¬â¢m proud of her as a woman of color. SheÃ¢â¬â¢s given girls opportunity, and God bless her.Ã¢â¬Â
