Attention Instagram “models”, one of the queens of the catwalk is not a fan of your work. Legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell swung on by The Meredith Vieira Show on Friday where she didn’t hold back on her thoughts surrounding the social media models. Dubbed by Vogue magazine as “Instagirls,” the models appears to be making serious waves in the industry instead of the old school way Naomi came up in the game. When asked about the trend, Naomi remarked:
It’s amazing, I mean good luck to them I just feel my generation of women, like Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Claudia we had to earn our stripes and take our stepping-stones to get to where we have gotten to accomplish to what we have achieved to this date.
Naomi didn’t stop there! When she was asked about if she felt it was fair some were getting their breaks courtesy of the popular social media service, Naomi stated:
I kind of feel like, ‘My God,’ it’s we’ve worked so hard and we are still working at it. Then it just comes like that for them but I sometimes believe easy come, easy go. So, I am actually grateful for the way I had my career I wouldn’t want it any other way so that’s for them, this is me.
Just like her struts down a runway, Naomi’s delivery is epic. Watch the interview below.
Meanwhile, Naomi’s acting portfolio is about to expand. Naomi just announced on The Today Show she re-team with her Empire boss Lee Daniels in the upcoming Richard Pryor biopic, which he is slated to direct. Naomi will star alongside Mike Epps who will play the late comic, as well as Oprah Winfrey, and Kate Hudson. No word on what role Naomi will play.
