Last week it was reported that supermodel Miranda Kerr’s three-year contract with Victoria’s Secret had expired, and wasn’t being renewed. Rumor has it Kerr was “not a big seller for VS,” and had a “difficult reputation.”
Now, the wife of Orlando Bloom has confirmed the news, saying she’s no longer committed to VS, and shares her side of the story.
“This is a natural evolution,” she tells The Sydney Morning Herald of her departure from Victoria’s Secret. “The thing is, I’ve been modeling since I was 13. I’m now entering a new phase in my life. I have felt this coming since my son was born and, after I became a mother, I realized I needed to prioritize my time,” Kerr explains.
The 29-year-old model, who’s mom to Flynn, 2, says she simply has too many projects on her plate and continuing her role as a Victoria’s Secret Angel would be too time-consuming. “‘I’m just not in a position to commit to a full contract at this time,” she said. “It’s three months at a bare minimum.”
Among the projects the burgeoning entrepreneur is working on: the release of her second book, Empower Yourself; her skin care line, Kora Organics; and campaigns for Quantas, Mango, and other other companies.
Kerr, who turns 30 on Saturday, April 20, also shared her birthday plans with the newspaper. Bloom is throwing a private party at their home. “He knows I like to dance and he knows I like to sing and I have the most fun when I’m singing and dancing — so I think there might be a little karaoke going on,” she revealed.
I follow her on Instagram. I want to be her when I grow up.
See Miranda Kerr as an Angel after the jump! (WOW!) (more…)
