SI Cover made Kate Upton hate her life…for about a month



So fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. So says Kate Upton; in an interview where she actually said something interesting. Check that, it’s the first time Kate Upton has done anything even close to remotely interesting in many many months. Obviously, here swimsuit spreads are more than interesting; they’re transcendent.

But Kate Upton used to have a personality too. Before she became over-managed and PR sanitized by her handlers. Since then every Kate Upton statement or quote has been a snoozefest…until now.

Kate Upton hated herself, and life in general for a little while.

Kate Upton should have been on top of the world when she covered her first Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in February 2012. Instead, the 21-year-old supermodel felt objectified and ridiculed. “After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month,” ELLE’s September 2013 cover girl reveals. “Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something.”

The 5-foot-10 beauty continues, “I’m not a toy, I’m a human. I’m not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your shit out.” Even in professional settings, Upton says she’s treated like a stereotypical “dumb blonde.”(via US)


Wait, hold on. So willingly signing up to be masturbation fodder makes you feel exploited for your body?? SHOCKING. Getting paid handsomely to be nothing more than inspiration to the self-gratification of many men feels empty and hollow? And then you feel relegated to nothing but a sex object?

Well, thanks Captain Obvious! I’m guessing Kate Upton got over it eventually. Because she hasn’t been turning down the work since then. And she’s not giving back all that money she earned. Of course, she came from BIG TIME MONEY anyway to begin with in her ultra-elite family.

But this quote is interesting too:

“I was at a photo shoot and I was wearing a cross necklace that my mom bought me, and somebody made a joke like, ‘Why are you wearing a cross? Like you would be religious.’ And then they took it away. I was really affected by that,”

Yeah, I’d get annoyed by that too. Just because you dress really slutty. Or look really slutty all the time in public doesn’t mean you aren’t wholesome on the inside. I’m being serious. Kate Upton is just acting; playing a role. You can skank it up for the cameras and still be Christian/religious. Isn’t that what that Madonna “Like a Prayer” music video in the 1980s was trying to teach us?
