Kate Moss Says She Helped Cara Stop Being ‘Sick’
Cocaine can be fun, not that we know from experience or anything, but itâ€™s also illegal, horrible for you and not something any celebrity wants to be caught with â€” especially models, whose non-stop schedules and skinny frames practically make them magnets for cocaine rumors.
As somebody with a well-known history of cocaine use, nobody knows the cons of the drug quite like Kate Moss, which makes her a prime candidate to take on the role of â€œchill older friend who can help you stop doing cocaineâ€ for younger models who may or may not include Cara Delevingne.
In a new interview with Business of Fashion, Kate Moss detailed some of the reasons why she decided to open up her own modeling agency to sign non-models, one of which was that she wants to help young girls navigate the pressures and temptations of being a hot young supermodel.
â€œNaomi took complete care of me,â€ Kate explained. â€œSheâ€™d say, â€˜Calm down.â€™ I think because youâ€™re alone a lot of the time, you really need guidance. Even now youâ€™re expected to do anything to get the picture, and thatâ€™s a work ethic, but you also need a support system.â€
Here’s what she said:
There are all these young kids and when Cara came to me she wasnâ€™t well and I was like, â€˜Babe, I am going to take you to a doctor,â€™ you know, because Iâ€™ve been there. Iâ€™ve got a maternal side and Iâ€™d like to take care of them and nurture them so they grow to their full capacity in anything theyâ€™d like to do, instead of being used up and tossed out, because I think that can happen a lot with things working so quickly.
While obviously Kate canâ€™t come out and say the â€œcâ€ word, andÂ despite dropping a tiny baggie of unidentified white powder in front of the paparazzi, Cara’s never confirmed she touches the stuff, we can read between the lines.
Not that weâ€™re judging at all.
Most of us would probably be hypocrites if we pretended weâ€™d never had at least one wild night in our 20s from the stuff.
We’re just glad Cara’s got Kate around to help her.
Allegedly, that is.
