Naomi Campbell is widely considered the ultimate supermodel, but she has revealed that she no longer likes the label.

"To be quite honest, today I don't know if I want to be called that name because everyone and their mother is called a supermodel and I'm like, 'OK, I'm just a working model,'" she said during an interview with NBC.


 



"I never believed in that hype," she added. "It's a name and yes I say it for promotion but it's not what I deeply think inside of myself. I feel that I'm just a model who loves what I do."

Naomi was promoting the second season of The Face in America, the modelling competition she executive produces and stars in as one of three mentors to aspiring young models.

For the first season, Naomi was joined on the panel by fellow supermodels Coco Rocha and Karolina Kurkova. The second season will see new faces Lydia Hearst, a publishing heiress, and Anne V, a Russian model.


 



Speaking about making the replacements, Naomi said that "it's good to change each season and work with different people."

Famous for her fiery temper, Naomi revealed that she has no problem with being labelled a b***h because she believes it is a way to describe powerful women.

"I think when women get called a b***h is when they're taking control, when they're strong, when they're being assertive," she said.

"And I've always said it, men can do that and it's fine. So, I mean, you have to have that b***c aspect. You just do, because you'll be trampled on if you don't."
