    From PopBitch:

    With Emily Ratajkowski's recent claim that Robin Thicke groped her on the set of the Blurred Lines video, it won't come as much of a surprise to learn it wasn't the only shoot of his that was dripping in slime.

    After turning up hours late to the set of DJ Cassidy's Calling All Hearts video in 2014, Thicke made his entrance by apologising to the crew: "Sorry I'm late. I had to wash the smell of pussy off me."

    He then filmed his part and left with one of the models he'd just met on the set.

    He's such a creep

    Emily Ratajkowski reveals sad, beauty-obsessed and sexualized childhood

    Emily Ratajkowski was born beautiful.
    As her mother, Kathy, told it, the doctor who delivered her held up the perfect infant and exclaimed, “Look at the size of her! She’s beautiful!”



    The next day he brought his children to the hospital just to see you,” she would continue, with pride. “You were such a beautiful baby.”
    In her forthcoming book of essays, “My Body” (out Nov. 9), Ratajkowski, now 30, writes about the price of such beauty. She reveals her family’s fixation on her looks and how adults sexualized her at a young age — a middle school teacher snapped her bra, long before Robin Thicke, 44, allegedly groped her while filming the “Blurred Lines” video when she was 21.
    After dancing her way to fame in Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” video, she went on to become a top model, influencer and entrepreneur. She gave interviews defending her sexy selfies and photo shoots, saying shedding her clothes was empowering — only to realize that she didn’t really have that much power at all.

    From a very young age, Ratajkowski understood her looks made her stand out, particularly in the eyes of her parents.
    Emily Ratajkowski at the launch party for her nude Treats! Magazine cover in 2012, when she was 20 — before her “Blurred Lines” fame.FilmMagicGrowing up an only child in San Diego, she listened to her mother’s stories about having once been a remarkable beauty herself. Kathy, an English teacher, looked like a young Liz Taylor or Vivien Leigh, and told of “adoring boys standing on the lawn below her bedroom window in high school” and jealous harpies who tried to undermine her.
    Ratajkowski learned this was to be her legacy, too.
    “I tried to gauge where my parents thought I belonged in the world of beauties,” Ratajkowski writes. “It seemed important to them both, especially to my mother, that their daughter be perceived as beautiful.” At night, she prayed that God would make her “the most beautiful.”
    “Beauty was a way for me to be special,” she explains. “When I was special, I felt my parents’ love for me the most.”
    When she was 14, the modeling world came calling.
    Emily Ratajkowski says her mother, Kathleen, resembled Liz Taylor or Vivien Leigh as a young woman.emrata/InstagramThe first time an agent approached, a preteen Ratajkowski was in the checkout line at a grocery store. Afterward, the future mannequin burst into tears, thinking that “headshots” meant “needles in the head.”
    But Ratajkowski felt that modeling would please her parents. They drove her to castings like most parents drove her peers to sports games. Her father, a high school art teacher, displayed her first modeling “comp” card — with her measurements and modeling images — in his classroom. They posted her modeling photos on Facebook.
    Ratajkowski went to her first audition when she was in middle school. She wore new stretchy jeans and chunky black boots. Kathy, in the waiting room with her, instructed Ratajkowski to flip her hair when it was her turn to meet with the casting directors. There was a young man with wild hair sitting a few feet from them.
    Emily Ratajkowski’s book of essays, called “My Body,” comes out in November.
    “That boy looked at you when you stood up and flipped your hair,” her mother said, driving from the audition in Los Angeles back home to San Diego. “He was watching you.”
    She attracted male attention from the time she was 12, she writes. (“I’ll never forget the look on his face as you walked past him!” Kathy would remark about random men on the street. “He stopped dead in his tracks and his mouth fell open!”)
    Her beauty provoked people: At 13, she was sent home from a dance after chaperones deemed her dress “too sexy.” Another time, her dad asked her to “not dress like that, just for tonight,” when she came downstairs wearing a pink lace top and push-up bra. She remembered the shame and confusion she felt when her older cousin came rushing back into the living room, after leaving Ratajkowski there with a male friend for a few minutes.
    “I was a child, but somehow already an expert in detecting male desire, even if I didn’t completely understand what to make of it,” she writes.

    The modeling world pushed Ratajkowski — who was shorter and bigger-busted than most high fashion models — to do catalog work, or swimsuit and lingerie shoots. When she was in high school, a casting agent pointed to some close-ups of her with her mouth half closed and lips pursed and marveled, “Now this is the look. This is how we know this girl gets f–ked!”
    In her new book of essays, “My Body,” Emily Ratajkowski writes about her fraught early modeling days, and how her mother, Kathleen, encouraged her to embrace her sexiness.Getty Images for Rihanna's Savag“My face felt hot,” Ratajkowski writes of that incident. “Was this something to be proud of?”
    According to her mother: yes. She placed a sexy black-and-white photo of Ratajkowski, then in high school, on the kitchen counter facing the front door. “Anyone coming in [the house] was immediately greeted by my pouty lips, bare legs and teased hair,” writes Ratajkowski, adding she was “embarrassed” by the picture.
    Emily Ratajkowski with her mother, Kathleen.David X Prutting/BFA.com, SplashNews.comShe writes that initially she took these incidents lightly, that she told herself that being a sex symbol — of feeling free to flaunt her sexuality — was empowering. And in a way, it was: It gave her money, fame, the ability to start her own business. Yet, as she saw grubby photographers who had taken sexy photos of her early in her career profit off her success, as she got sued by paparazzi who claimed to own their pictures of her, as she continued to encounter men like Thicke, who could touch her and face no consequences, she realized she didn’t have as much say over her body, whom it belongs to, and how it can be used, as she thought.
    “It had never occurred to me that the women who gained their power from beauty were indebted to the men whose desire granted them that power in the first place,” she writes. “Those men were the ones in control, not the women the world fawned over.
    “Facing the reality of the dynamics at play would have meant admitting how limited my power really was — how limited any woman’s power is when she survives and even succeeds in the world as a thing to be looked at.”
    Ratajkowski, who is mom to 7-month-old Sylvester, just walked the runway at Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show in September.Getty Images for Rihanna's SavagNow, however, she writes, “I was forced to face some ugly truths about what I understood as important, what I thought love was, what I believed made me special, and to confront the reality of my relationship with my body.”
    Later, after Ratajkowski moved out of her parents’ house and became a successful model, she finally convinced her mom to take down that photo in the kitchen.
    Her mother agreed: “It doesn’t represent you anymore,” she told her daughter. Though she seemed to misunderstand the reasoning. “You’re more beautiful than that now.”

    Do you know how many women can write a book with similar situations? Men and boys staring from an early age, cat called, groped, and so on? Give me a break! I can’t roll my eyes hard enough for her. Really, she isn’t that special. Her story isn’t unique.

    I think she has good hair and a great body, but her face is nothing special at all, rather unremarkable - and if I'm mean, she has a little Frank Burns face going on.
    Still, I kinda like her, she said good things in the past (hey, I'm a. shallow and b. don't speak the language, I think that nuance is often lost on me).

    I have to admit, the book sounds very annoying.

    I re-watched the Blurred Lines video a few days ago. Emily is so ridiculous in it. I have no clue how the director thought that the women in it were empowered and completely one-upped the men in the video. I got no message from it other than "Robin Thicke has a big dick" -- it should have read IS a big dick.

    Apparently, it was not only directed by a woman director, but the who crew was female.

    Robin is such a sleaze, but darn if that song isn't catchy. Total ear worm and I really need to find something else to get in my brain.

    ]Emily Ratajkowski 'frustrated' her account of Robin Thicke groping her during 'Blurred Lines' video shoot 'leaked'



    "What's frustrating is I didn't come out with it, it was leaked," the model said of a passage from her book, and that she'd rather people "hear things in [her] own words."





    Emily Ratajkowski isn't mincing words about an incident she says occurred on Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" music video shoot, but went public against her will.
    ]"What's frustrating is I didn't come out with it, it was leaked," the 30-year-old entertainer told Extra Monday night at a CoinGeek New York event, after The Sunday Times reported that a passage from the star's upcoming My Body book contained an allegation that Thicke groped Ratajkowski during production of the video.


    "It's been hard for me, I really like to have control over my image, and I wrote this book of essays to share the whole story and all sides of it," she continued. "I feel like it just turns into a clickbait frenzy, and all of a sudden words like 'sexual assault' and 'allegations' are getting thrown around rather than people reading the actual essay, so, again, I'm just looking forward to when people will be able to hear things in my own words."
    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]The Times indicated that Ratajkowski reportedly revealed that Thicke was "a little drunk" at one point during the shoot, and she later felt his hands "cupping my bare breasts from behind."
    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]"He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backward, his eyes concealed behind his sunglasses. My head turned to the darkness beyond the set. [The director, Diane Martel's] voice cracked as she yelled out to me, 'Are you okay?'" the publication wrote. Martel told the Timesthat she remembered the moment, and screamed, "What the f--- are you doing, that's it! The shoot is over!"





    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]"Blurred Lines" (which went No. 1 in the United States in 2013) has long been criticized for its lyrics; Thicke repeatedly sings "I know you want it" in the song, and it's a line many have said minimizes the importance of consent.
    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]Thicke's team hasn't responded to EW's inquiries about Ratajkowski's allegations.
    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]"I hope that people read the book, because everything that I talk about in it is about the evolution of my politics, and it's not some big reveal, it's not some crazy thing, it's part of a larger essay," Ratajkowski said in her Extra interview. "I'm excited for people to hold nuance and understand that."
    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]
    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]According to publisher Macmillan's official synopsis, My Body is "a deeply honest investigation of what it means to be a woman and a commodity" through a collection of personal writings from the star.

    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]
    [/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.95)]Ratajkowski has been a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement. In 2018, she and Amy Schumer were among 300 people detained at protests over Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination after he was accused of sexual assault. She also wrote "F--- Harvey" on her arm while she walked the Uncut Gems red carpet in 2019, with reference to disgraced Hollywood mogul and convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein.

    I too rewatched it recently and had the same issue

    Weird Al's version of both the song and the video are vastly superior.

    Her mother sounds warped. But ERat is an adult now and needs to stop.

    Edited to add, I mean stop with constantly posing half-naked and objectifying herself. NOT with outing creeps like thicke.

    I watched it again last night after reading your comment and thought this is a rape anthem & couldn’t work out why my gut was telling me that.
    Then I heard "I'll give you something big enough to tear your ass in two," & googled & it seems I’m not alone.

    Wait, what? OMG. Yikes. I know the theme of the song is horrible, but I didn't think it said that. Awful. Of course, I still can't get it out of my head. I need to stop visiting this thread.
