On today’s episode of “Meredith”, the legendary Naomi Campbell stopped by the dish on her latest projects and share her thoughts on the current crop of top models. When Meredith asked her about models who are making a name for themselves via Instagram, Naomi explained that she’s grateful for coming up the old fashioned way. She added, “easy come, easy go.”
Meredith: There is this new supermodel generation that is using Instagram and other social media outlets to get noticed and launch their modeling career and Vogue actually refers to them as “Instagirls.” I mean you came up the normal way.
Naomi: 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.
Meredith: So does it bother you that this is the way that people are getting to be models.
Naomi: 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. 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.
Naomi also touted her cameo on FOX’s “Empire” where she plays Camilla Marks, the “older” woman in Hakeem Lyons’ life. And if you saw this week’s episode, you know she loves it when he calls her “Mommy.” Meow.
