For someone who craves the spotlight, Naomi Campbell wishes she were anywhere but here.
The British supermodel, who's never seen a camera she didn't like, was a reluctant witness under heavy security (check that cell phone at the door!) today in The Hague at the war crimes tribunal of Charles Taylor as she recounted how the former Liberian leader once sent her a gift of what she called "dirty stones"—what turned out to be so-called blood diamonds.
"I did not want to be here," she said. "I just want to get this over with and get on with my life, this is a big inconvenience for me."
We're sorry, Naomi, that the prosecution of a war criminal accused of killing thousands of innocents has gotten in the way of your busy schedule.
