As part of the promotional tour surrounding her appearance on the cover of the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, a much warmer and more appropriately dressed Kate Upton appeared on the Today show on Tuesday morning to describe the harrowing experience she and the rest of the photo shoot party endured to capture the breathtaking images of her posing in a bikini in a freezing Antarctica for this year’s issue.
“I was very surprised by the news that that’s where my shoot was going to be located,’’ she said on TODAY Tuesday in her first interview since making the cover. “It was freezing. I’m from Florida, so it wasn’t great for me. When I came back I was losing hearing and eyesight because my body was shutting down, it was working so hard to keep warm. I was thinking warm thoughts.
“I could really only do it for a minute and then everyone would come running and throw blankets on top of me and they would build me like a little blanket cave. I really went all out on this. We went there thinking we might not even get a shot, and came back with the cover.”
Despite the brutally adverse conditions, Upton nevertheless managed to take in the wondrous splendor of the frozen yet majestic Antarctica surroundings, saying, “It was the most beautiful place I’ve ever been,’’ and adding, “Before I took off my coat, I would just enjoy the views. The mountains were pink and the water was glass. It was like little ice cubes were in the water. It was gorgeous.’’
Upton added that she was inspired by the local wildlife. “The penguins kept me going,’’ she said. “They’re adorable, and any time I was like, ‘I can’t take any more, I can’t,’ I would look at them and I was like, ‘OK, for them.’’’
It didn’t take long for Kate Upton to become a polarizing figure. In the span of little more than a year, Kate Upton was a little known model on the rise to omnipresent supermodel to Kate Upton backlash. We’ll see what happens when these Kate Upton body paint photos start circulating. Apparently, a lot of people don’t appreciate her popularity, and think she’s fat.
As I argued on Tuesday, what’s the point in being resistant to the fact that this is Kate Upton’s world and we simply are living in it. And by “living in it,” I of course mean that we are all like lemmings, unable to avoid the lure of the next batch of Kate Upton photos or her latest video or whatever. But instead of perilously leaping off a cliff like the aforementioned...

The much-antipiated Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition was released earlier this week. Kate Upton snagged the coveted cover spot for the second year in a row, a feat that has not happened since Tyra Banks covered back-to-back issues in 1996 and 1997. While the magazine means endless opportunities for a model’s career, it’s also a business booster for featured apparel and accessory...
Skullcandy, Big Boi, Stevie Johnson, Electronic Arts, and Kate Upton have all joined forces on this episode of “Take A Supermodel To Work Day”. Poor Kate is brought into the studio to learn all about music producing but Big Boi and Stevie are too busy playing video games to take much notice of her.
Obviously, this is a work of fiction in the most extreme sense.
