Campbell seemed on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live to promote the Global Citizens Festival, which she is co-web hosting and co-generating. But while in Andy Cohen’s warm seat, she obtained a query submitted through a fan, asking her to proportion her “views on Kendall Jenner being the highest-paid version whilst pronouncing she cherry-choices her jobs and will by no means do 30 shows in a season.” Campbell almost didn’t let Cohen finish studying, though, because she chimed in with an instantly-iconic, staring-directly-into-the-camera quip: “Next question.”

When Cohen asked approximately her dating with Kaia Gerber, the daughter of Cindy Crawford who regularly refers to her as “Auntie,” Campbell smiled and said, “She’s lovely. I’m very proud of Kaia.” She recalled the time that she, Gerber, and Crawford all met up at the late designer Azzedine Alaïa’s house to discuss the 17-yr-old’s profession: “We sat on the kitchen table and we simply went through all of the suggests she needs to do and shouldn’t do in the meantime—motive she’s a child, she will be able to get to them—and he or she has accompanied the entirety. Very happy with her.” (Also, by no means overlook: Campbell coached Gigi Hadid on her runway stroll.)

She delivered: “I was dissatisfied. I don’t wanna see ladies of color combat. I don’t wanna see ladies combat, length. So, no longer there, now not that. It’s all track, you understand, there is no division in a track. And music is for everybody, there’s no discrimination, so I felt very dissatisfied.”
