Naomi Campbell Says She Picks Gigs That Will Benefit Her People

Legendary fashion model Naomi Campbell recently covered British GQ with grime rapper Skepta that sparked dating rumors. The two also sat down for an interview where they discuss their careers, race, and politics.

After more than 30 years in the fashion industry, Campbell explains that she no longer books projects chasing fame. She now chooses her work thinking about how it will benefit her community.

“When I choose the job I’m going to do, when it’s offered to me … I don’t give a f**k about fame,” the model said. “It’s not about that for me. It’s about what does it do for my people now. If I do this job, where can it go? Where does it lead to? What can I do for them? That’s where I’m thinking.”

In speaking on how Trump has affected the bigotry in the country, Campbell said: “for those people that are ignorant, feel now that they can come out openly and show their ignorance because the leader of the free world is showing his.”

Watch the full interview above to hear Skepta speak about how Black success has helped race relations.
