Kate Upton is quite angry; furious even. I would not want to deal with Kate Upton when she’s angry. I would not want to get on her bad side. Kate Upton is angry at Victoria’s Secret over usage of her likeness in the latest VS catalog. Kate Upton appears on the company’s back cover; and her people say the photos were used without her permission. And they’re from 2011. And Kate Upton doesn’t even have a current deal with Victoria’s Secret. From the LA Times: “Kate is not thrilled Victoria’s Secret is using these photos. She is not contracted to work with Victoria’s Secret and was not notified before the images, taken in 2011, were used,” a source told the Daily Mail. It all sounds a little bit odd, especially since the company blasted the curvaceous 20-year-old last year when VS booker Sophia Neophitou told the New York Times they would “never” use Upton for a Victoria’s Secret show because her look was “too obvious.” “She’s like a footballer’s wife, with the too-blond hair and that kind of face that anyone with enough money can go out and buy,” Neophitou said. Too obvious? Yeah, too obviously hot! WTF? And why the 180 on whether or not to use Kate Upton? And how do you go from saying she’s not catalog material to the back cover? A primo spot like that? And why would you want to anger someone who’s grandfather invented the modern washing machine, founded Whirlpool AND who’s uncle is a Congressional power broker who heads the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission? Kate Upton has powerful family members. Let’s close this piece on an upbeat note. Here’s what Kate Upton has to say to the haters and critics. Quoting the June issue of Vogue: “I can’t change my bra size. They’re natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can’t change some things. I really just live my life. I love my body. It’s what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.” Paul M. Banks is the owner of The Sports Bank.net.
