Our favorite blonde bombshell Kate Upton revealed to British Vogue this month that she actually wasn’t too happy about her famous “Cat Daddy” video going viral. The jaw dropping video, released by celebrity photographer Terry Richardson, got millions of views within the first day. The cover story touches on Upton’s anger toward the photographer deciding to release the video, but even Upton admitted she is okay with how it turned out.
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.”
Meanwhile the rest of the Internet is extremely thankful for Richardson’s actions. So let’s just review Kate Upton’s cat daddying skills one more time.
