Supermodel Naomi Campbell, British GQ’s new contributing editor, kicked things off at the magazine by interviewing Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez. In the four-page interview, Mr. Chavez talks about his fears that President George W. Bush wants to kill him, his dream to unite South America by 2020 and how the world is currently watching America’s decline.
Ms. Campbell does manage to keep the interview—which will appear in the February issue, on newsstands this Thursday—upbeat overall, reports WWD. Among other things, Ms. Campbell’s introduction reveals Mr. Chavez’s love for singing. “If he wasn’t the president, he’d be a very successful Latin singer,” writes Ms. Campbell, who calls the South American politico a “rebel angel,” later adding that of all the world’s leaders, Mr. Chavez thinks Fidel Castro is the most stylish. “[H]is uniform is impeccable … and his beard is elegant,” he says.
