Naomi Campbell chews fat with Hugo Chavez
Prez disses US and Duchess of Cornwall
Battling Streatham clotheshorse Naomi Campbell has quite magnificently conducted an interview with Venezuelan prez Hugo Chavez, in which the latter predictably railed against the US and concluded that Camilla Duchess of Cornwall is "not as attractive" as the sainted Diana, Queen of Hearts™.
Campbell jetted to the sun-kissed paradise upon the Caribbean on behalf on GQ magazine, and conducted a "wide-ranging" face-to-face with Chavez, describing him as "fearless, but not threatening or unreasonable", the Telegraph explains.
Chavez, doubtless speaking quite fearlessly from behind a BlackBerry-proof toughened glass screen, variously slammed George Bush as "completely crazy" for trying to have him popped off, praised Fidel Castro's uniform as "impeccable", and doubted "there is any country in the world with more freedom of expression than here".
To prove the latter point, Chavez first weighed into the US, declaring: "We're seeing the fall of the Empire. When the world is in fear - that's the first step before the fall."
He then turned on Chaz of Wales's squeeze Camilla, gawd bless 'er, saying: "I like the Prince. Now he has Camilla, his new girl. She's not as attractive, is she?"
On a more serious note, El Prez proclaimed his human rights record to be as "impeccable" as Castro's starched jungle greens, explaining: "Here, we are just starting a peaceful revolution. We don't have a single political prisoner. We have not shot anyone. We've prohibited the detention of anyone for political reasons. Everyone is presumed innocent and their human rights are respected."
Campbell subsequently said of her "controversial" meet with America's latest bête noire: "I didn't want to judge Chavez, or probe him for his political views, even though he gave them freely. I simply went to interview Hugo Chavez the man."
And regarding Hugo Chavez the man, when asked by Campbell if he'd be willing to do a Putin and whip off his top for the delight of Friends of Dorothy worldwide, he said: "Why not? Touch my muscles!"
Campbell's interview appears in the next issue of GQ, on sale Thursday. ®
Chris G is just as stupid as Naomi and Hugo put together!
Dear Chris G,
Why don't you take Wayne's advice and do some research[excised by Reg moderator]. Have you ever even stepped foot in Venezuela? Its so easy for you to jump to whatever conclusions you can just cause you are against the states, and you heard from another dumbass that has a business in Venezuela that Chavez is a great guy. [Excised by Reg moderator.] I am from Venezuela and I can not even count how many people have been detained, put in jail, and innocent citizens speaking their so called "free opinion" that have been exiled from Venezuela just because they do not agree with Chavez. He gives money to every other country EXCEPT Venezuela. Do you even know how dangerous it has become? Of course the poor people like Chavez, because they have nothing left but hope. But in the end he still has not given them ANYTHING.
Sure, it's about the money...
Please do some reading and actual business before you go spouting your excreta. Venezuela's agricultural industry is collapsing, and the availability of food and resources are spotty at best. You're lucky if you have any sort of money and haven't had your offices 'donated' to the gov't. (Which my company just went through. Yes, gentlemen with rifles greeted our local workforce and told them that they work for the gov't now.)
It's circling the drain... Like a lot of places it might hang out there for a while, esp while bolstered by high oil prices, but either the gov't will change or it will be flushed.
Chavez is another example of US media management. He is painted as a looney and ridiculed because he is one of the national leaders in the world to tell the yanks to go screw themselves when they tried to tell him how much money he wanted for his own oil. Just because he doesn't conform to western notions of diplomatic behaviour he gets bad press as with Juan Carlos telling him to shut up because he slagged off two Spanish presidents and called them fascists. he is entitled to his own opinion and Spain is generally in cahoots with the UK and US so Chavez is entitled to a little antipathy towards them. An acquaintance of mine has a business in Venezuela and has met Chavez on more than one occasion, he has only good things to say . so don't trust all you read in the western press about world leaders who are putting the interests of their own countries before the interests of the US and it's arse licking allies, at the end of the day it is not about democracy, freedom of speech or anything else the so called leaders of the free world bleat on about, it's about MONEY.
