    Naomi Campbell Picks Up the Microphone, Doesn’t Throw ItBarbara Walters. Christiane Amanpour. Andrea Mitchell. Katie Couric. Lesley Stahl. And, now, Naomi Campbell? The supermodel is trying to join the ranks of modern journalism’s most influential women interviewers. Campbell already had a sit-down with Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, and now she’s set her sights on infirm and possibly-retiring Cuban leader Fidel Castro. She’s on assignment from GQ magazine, and she’s “not going to be political.” She doesn’t have anything with Castro set up yet, but she’s not coming back from Cuba empty-handed. “She’ll spend Christmas out there if she has to,” reports Daily Telegraph “Spy” columnist Celia Walden. “She also said she’ll land [French president Nicolas] Sarkozy in the New Year.” Fascinating! This is bound to turn into a great story, of some sort. Wherever she conducts these interviews, let us all hope that there are plenty of witnesses, and lots and lots of cell phones.
