Naomi Campbell on Interview MagazineTop model Naomi Campbell is no role model. So admits the beauty in the new issue of Interview magazine.

"Listen, I make many mistakes. Many mistakes. I'm not a perfect human being," says Campbell, who has battled drug addiction, dealt with anger management issues and become a key player in the international war crimes trial of Charles Taylor after allegedly accepting blood diamonds from the disgraced former Liberian president.

"I have to learn from my mistakes. And a lot of the ones I've made have been public. So I always get nervous when people speak about something that sounds like a role model, because I don't know if I've been a great role model myself."

Campbell plays up her bad-girl persona in the provocative portfolio shoot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. For one photo, she wears a form-fitting black leather dress, a gold dog collar-style choker and cuff-like, thumb only black leather gloves -- revealing bright red nails -- that frame the face of a nude male model, whose mug is bloodied and body is wounded.

In the second shot, Campbell is clad in a black body-conscious dress with gold hardware details. She leans toward the model as if whispering something conspiratorial while stealing a sideways glance and exhaling a cloud of cigarette smoke.

The images may not exactly help change people's perceptions of Campbell, but she could care less.

"I mean, look, I'm controversial," she says matter-of-factly. "If people want to work with me, then they want to work with me. If they don't, they don't."
