Stuff that pops into my head. Innit.

Beautiful on the outside.......

There's a bit of a fuss going on at the moment concerning Naomi Campbell and her alleged acceptance of a couple of "blood" diamonds -which she no longer has apparently because she gave the stones to Jeremy Ratcliffe, the then head of the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund, intending them to be used to raise money for the charity.
However, the fund said it had not received the stones.
There's a shock.
There's always been an ugly side to Naomi Campbell -the air rage incident, wearing fur after publicly denouncing it, going out with Flavio Briatore (sorry!) - but this is on a whole new level of either crass stupidity or fuck-everyone-else-look-what-I've-got-ness.
Accepting diamonds from the leader of a country not known for being exactly well off is stupid and perhaps naive.
Accepting them from a man who referred to himself as a "Warlord" and who later went on to become the first African to be tried for war crimes for his involvement in the Sierra Leone civil war is ridiculous.

Naomi Campbell yesterday, just after stabbing a kitten

Meh. She's famous. She can get out of it. Celebrities are usually above the law.

She can and will get out of it. That doesn't excuse her crassness though.

We easily judge celebrities, but Naomi Campbell is a different case... I mean we already know as a fact how horrible a person she really is.

I think your right. Like I said, beautiful on the outside.....

Yeah, I can't say I'm a fan of her either. But obviously her crass ass has gotten her this far....but its a long fall from the top (which she arguably isn't at anymore)...and someday it'll happen.
