Cameron Russell at her day job
Victoria's Secret model Cameron Russell told a conference in Palm Springs last week that lingerie modeling should not be a career goal for young hot girls. Wait a minute, what is she doing at a conference? Take your clothes off, bitch! From the Daily Mail:
She has walked the catwalk for Chanel, Balmain and Oscar de la Renta and even occupies a much coveted place as a Victoria's Secret Angel. But Cameron Russell has warned young girls away from the career choice she made eight years ago. Speaking at the annual TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference in Palm Springs, U.S., the 25-year-old spoke out about the importance of not choosing a career that is 'out of your control.'Yeah, it must be a terrible burden to be a Victoria's Secret Angel. Imagine living the jet-setting lifestyle of a top tier model? The fame, the money, the A-list parties (plus the fact that you don't have to pay for your coke) must be distressing. Damn it, if only Cameron was just extremely beautiful instead of overwhelmingly gorgeous, the world would be a more fair place for all. Oh well, I guess poor Cam will just have to endure the suffering of hitting the genetic jackpot while the rest of us mouthbreathers desperately search for love and acceptance.
She said: "What I really want to say to these little girls, is 'Why? You know, you can be anything.' You could be the President of the Unites States or the inventor of the next internet or a ninja cardio-thoracic surgeon poet, which would be awesome because you would be the first one. Saying you want to be a model when you want to grow up is akin to saying you want to win the Powerball when you grow up. It's out of your control and it's awesome but it's not a career path. I am the recipient of a legacy - I've received all these benefits from a deck stacked in my favor."
