Kate Upton is known for her incredible looks, classy magazine spreads and some funny movies. But back in 2012, Upton was known purely for a little thing called “Cat Daddy.”
Released by photographer/creep Terry Richardson, “Cat Daddy” features a young Upton dancing/grinding A.K.A doing the Cat Daddy dance. It didn’t necessarily put her on the map, but with over a million views on YouTube, it didn’t hurt.
So why are we talking about this? Well, it’s because you were never supposed to see that video. That’s right, in true creeper style, Terry Richardson released the viddy without Upton’s permission she revealed to British Vogue. “I was like, ‘That was disrespectful, you could have told me!'”
But he wouldn’t be Terry Richardson if he did.
Of course, there are no hard feelings now, how could there be? Richardson, although pervy, is very famous, and whoever he works with, especially a gorgeous blonde like Upton, is bound to get some attention.
Like we said before, Upton has come a long way since her “Cat Daddy” days. She’s landed numerous high-end magazine covers, including her dream of stealing the Sports Illustrated spotlight from any other model. She’s made besties with Cameron Diaz, who calls Upton the ultimate “girl’s girl.” And, in December, she was named PEOPLE’s Sexiest Woman of The Year. Not bad for a 22-year-old, wouldn’t you agree?
As we reminisce about Upton’s career, watch the “Cat Daddy” video below. And be sure to head over to British Vogue for more!
