Supermodel and fashion icon Naomi Campbell has been snatching wigs and slaying runways for more than two decades, but throughout her reign over the industry she’s never let the world have an inside look into her personal life…until now.
Recently announced on her Instagram page, Campbell has finally decided to give us a glimpse of her world via her new YouTube channel, “Being Naomi.” Admitting that she’s new to the process of recording videos and uploading them online, Campbell says, “This is the day we live in and I want to share the things that I’ve learned. What’s the point of me keeping all of this stuff in?!”
What fans can expect from her new online extension is a deeper-dive behind the scenes of her global travels, her photo shoots and daily musings. So far, she’s uploaded three videos and is reportedly gearing up to deliver even more content.
“I’ve been a supermodel, an activist and a friend of the most amazing people in my lifetime,” Campbell added. “I’ve been criticized, and I’ve been praised. But through all of this, I’ve always remained Naomi, and now it’s time to share that.”
The 48-year-old fashion diva recently hosted South Africa’s Global Citizen Festival event, which celebrated the legacy of Nelson Mandela during the year that would have marked his 100th birthday. Speaking on her passion for the continent, Campbell says she hopes her new YouTube channel will inspire young women in Africa and beyond.
“I want to share with women across the world and especially women -and young women- in Africa,” she said. “I want to see if the next generation will use the things that I’ve said.”
