Playing Naomi Campbell Jokes About Beef With Rihanna, Says Models Today Have It 'a Little Easier'

Naomi Campbell doesn't seem to have beef with anyone in particular, but she does have some pretty bold opinions about her peers.

The 46-year-old supermodel appeared on Tuesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, and answered questions regarding her alleged beef with Rihanna and what she really thinks of Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid's modeling careers.

When a fan tweeted to the show saying she noticed that Campbell and Rihanna do not follow one another on social media, Campbell coyly, almost sarcastically, told Cohen, "Everything's fine, of course it's fine. I'm an actress now, Andy."

She quickly clarified, "I don't have beef, especially with black women that I think are powerful. We're out there doing the same thing, and [having] the same struggle."

Campbell was also asked about the differences between how she and other supermodels of her generation came up in the fashion industry as opposed to how reality stars Hadid and Jenner were discovered. "It's different. Now you have social media," she explained. "It's a little easier now, you have more of a reach."

Campbell also chatted with ET in January about the new crop of young models hitting the runways. "I embrace newcomers, and I always will," she gushed. "If they want me to teach them how to walk, and I have the time, I'll do it."
