NOT THE NEWS

Kate Upton Reveals She Was Mad At Terry Richardson For Uploading Her Infamous Cat Daddy Video To The Internet (NSFW)

Kate Upton Cat Daddy

When you watch it, you can probably understand why.

In news that won’t really surprise anyone as we already know that Terry Richardson is a massive creep – check out our expose on him if you need any more convincing – Kate Upton revealed to Vogue that she never wanted her famous ‘cat daddy’ video uploaded to the internet and shared, although it’s OK now because it’s got 22 million views and played a massive part in her rise to fame.

Here’s what the article, written by Alexa Chung had to say about Terry Richardson and the role of the Cat Daddy video in her career:

Did she stand up to Richardson when she discovered it had gone viral? “Yes, I did. I was like, ‘That was disrespectful, you could have told me!’” She couldn’t stay angry: the video helped to secure Upton’s global fame. “Now, obviously, it’s fine,” she says. I ask Richardson whether he feels somewhat responsible for Upton’s rise to fame. “No,” he demurs, “Kate was born a star.”

“I think it was kind of how everything was placed at once, in a weird way,” she says vaguely, when asked to pinpoint the exact moment she became a megastar. “I had Sports Illustrated and that next year I worked with Vogue and it was really just the placement of things. One year I had a lot of male followers, and the next, women followers and fans. I didn’t have a say in it – that was just how it went.”

So yeah, that was just how it went and to be fair most models have to do a creepy photoshoot with Terry Richardson before they become megastars so it’s no surprise Kate had to do the same – he just happened to do something slightly more creepy to her than usual. That’s just how it went though.

If you’ve never seen the video (don’t lie) then you can check it out below. We’re only posting it again because she’s OK with it now, obviously.
