Naomi Campbell throws some brutal shade at Kendall Jenner over her modeling career
Kendall Jenner is the highest paid model in the world, raking in $22 million last year, according to Forbes Magazine. When it comes to being attractive, walking down a runway, and looking into a camera, the 22-year-old just can't be beat. How does she do it?! Everybody wants to know, but when Kendall shared her thoughts with LOVE Magazine, she pissed off many of her fellow models.
"Since the beginning we've been super selective about what shows I would do," she told the publication. "I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the f*ck those girls do. More power to 'em."
These entitled comments got an angry backlash, and not even a delicious can of Pepsi could smooth things over. See, Kendall Jenner can be selective with jobs, because she comes from an extremely privileged background. Other models aren't so fortunate.
"Whatever the f*ck those girls do' is their very best to make their way up AND try to make some money so that they can provide for themselves and their families," wrote mode Daria Strokous. "Oh, and it's 70 shows a season by the way and we are all f*cking proud of every single one of the girls that did it."
Kendall tried to quell the fire by clarifying her comments on Twitter. "I was misrepresented in a recent interview over the wknd," she claimed. "The respect that I have for my peers is immeasurable! I get to experience first hand their tireless commitment, their work ethic, the endless days, the lack of sleep, separation from family and friends, stress of traveling, the toll on physical and mental health, yet they still make it all look effortless and beautiful."
Did the offended models accept Kendall's apology? I don't know. Was that even an apology? She didn't say she was sorry. She said she was taken out of context. I guess that's as close to apologizing as celebrities get. In Hollywood, never say you're sorry - it's a sign of weakness!
Anyway, supermodel Naomi Campbell appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. Andy asked about her views on Kendall Jenner being the world's highest paid model while "cherry-picking" gigs. Naomi threw brutal shade at Kendall with her icy two word response: "Next question." Savage. After that terse response, she glared daggers into the camera, and a wild Cuba Gooding, Jr. popped into the frame to mean mug.
Andy moved on to the next topic, the Global Citizen Festival, so it's up to viewers to interpret Naomi's pithy reply. She might be upset with Kendall, or she might just be over talking about the issue. It was a dumb comment, she took back, let's move on.
Well, maybe Kendall can repair her relationship with the offended models by bringing them all an ice-cold can of delicious Pepsi. I've heard that soda's great at bringing people together.
