That interview sounds like Jessica Stam just wanted to avoid all the controversy and act crazy!

^ Same video embed


She just sounds very distracted and tired, I'm not the biggest Jessica fan, but we al have bad days,
plus the interviewer's lack of experience to make this fluid it's noticeable, she was trying to make this
less awkward by smiling. But just my opinion

^ You said it.
She has always come across as quite 'flaky' to me, she just isn't very eloquent.....which in her line of work doesn't really matter I suppose, but there is the odd time when you will be asked questions on camera, and it would be better to not come off sounding so dumb/distracted.

Poor Jessica.. I think nerves kicked in. To be honest, I find her quite humble in that interview but she got short in spontaneity and eloquence.

I thought she seemed fine. A little nervous yes, you'd think she would be used to the camera/questions by now, but she did look gorgeous.

Someone's talking right in her ear when she's giving this interview. I think that she does a great job all things considered.

I hardly think a person's dumb because they can't focus when someone's screaming right next to them....She does a lot of the pretty girl things - licking her lips, whipping her eyelashes, smiling, flipping her hair....that never seems smart because that's just what those sexual signs are about - being sexual, not smart. However, since this is in conjunction with the VS shows that doesn't mean that she's really that silly....on the contrary, she strikes me as a smart girl who can adjust to the situation.

You know, it is plausible that she really did not know how that spread came off as racist to others. Maybe all the models didn't realize that and now that a dumb interviewer asked her that question she was totally perplexed, like maybe she was thinking "what is he saying, i don't understand" that's why she couldn't answer intelligently. I bet many people, however smart they are, can't answer eloquently if questioned about something they didn't know about beforehand. It's mean of you to say Stam is stupid just because of this.

I can see why Jessica Stam was caught off-guard in the fashionista interview because (thankfully) that awful, attention-seeking editorial did not develop into a full-fledged controversy, so the premise of those questions was not valid. She is being asked about a "controversy" that was probably limited to fashion blogs and a few media outlets, I think that the "controversy" relating to Karlie Kloss' Vogue Italia ed got more traction. Re the second interview I am kinda mixed because it was the raw interview and in real life they would have only aired the most usable responses and only needed about 30 seconds of usable stuff, but at the same time I have seen uncut interview segments where the model, including ones who are non-native English speakers, have been much better spoken. Jessica is at the stage in her career where she and her management should be pursuing commercial gigs that may include spokesmodeling and she has got to do better than that. Does anyone know the deal with CoverGirl, was that just a campaign?

Wow, that has to be one of the worst model interviewers ever. He was awful, and it should have been cut short.

Andrej Pejic Pisses Off Fans By Dropping the N-Bomb

Quote:
Famously androgynous male model Andrej Pejic has gotten himself in trouble on the Twitter. First, he Tweeted, "Take me to Westchester." When a follower — the stylist/accessory designer Rembrandt Duran — responded, "But you went without me," Pejic wrote back, "Found a real white n***a." Several of Pejic's 27,000 followers were upset by his use of the word.

What a completely idiotic, thoughtless, and insensitive thing to say.
