Emily Ratajkowski Calls “Blurred Lines” Video “The Bane Of Her Existence”

'We Are Your Friends' Los Angeles PremiereEven though Emily Ratajkowski got her big break in Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” music video, she is now on a mission to prove she has a lot more to offer. In the October issue of InStyle UK, Emily discusses her part in “Blurred Lines”, her personal style, and her views on sexuality.

“I wasn’t into the idea at all at first,” Emily explains to InStyle UK about participating in the “Blurred Lines” video. “Now, it’s the bane of my existence. When anyone comes up to me about “Blurred Lines”, I’m like, are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?”

Emily describes her personal style to the fashion magazine as, “Wannabe French girl – feminine but just super, super cool.” The 24-year old also admitted that she isn’t shy about showing off her body saying, “My mum taught me to never apologize for my sexuality. My dad never made me feel embarrassed. I also don’t think I’ve ever had an awareness of my own body as being super-sexual. It was always just my body.”

Hopefully Emily has some interesting new projects planned if she really does want to move beyond the initial impression she created with “Blurred Lines,” since the movie that she is currently promoting, “We Are Your Friends,” has struggled at the box office.

Miley Cyrus Talks 2015 VMAs, Calls Out Robin Thicke and Slams Nicki Minaj

Miley Cyrus Slams Nicki MinajIn a revealing interview with the New York Times, Miley Cyrus offered some surprising insights about how she got the 2015 VMA hosting gig, the real story behind her epic 2013 VMAs performance and her personal take on the Nicki Minaj / Taylor Swift feud.  It’s a good read.

On the 2015 VMAs, Miley explained how she came to accept the hosting gig.  “They said, ‘This is your party,” she revealed, adding that the show will be “psychedelic” and “raw”. Van Toffler, who is the former president of Viacom, originally contacted Miley with the idea to host this year’s awards. “He was like, “I want to do something crazy — I want you to host the V.M.A.s, because I want that to be my last shebang.” If you think Miley’s going to stick with the traditional format of the show, starting with some stand-up, you might want to get ready for some changes, “I’m not a stand-up. That’s what it always feels like — like everything’s flopping and dying out there. So my intro is fun skits.”

The interview then turned to the 2013 VMAs and Miley’s epic pop culture moment, the twerk heard round the world with “Blurred Lines” singer Robin Thicke. “Dude, it was insane. I became that girl — I was the face of twerking, which didn’t really matter. That wasn’t what it was about.”

Many people were outraged by the performance and put all of the blame on Miley even though it was actually Robin’s performance. “He acted like he didn’t know that was going to happen. You were in rehearsals! You knew exactly what was going to happen. And he was actually the one that approved my outfit, so I thought that was very funny.”

Also during the interview, Miley shed light on how she really felt about Nicki Minaj’s Twitter rant after the rapper was not nominated for “Video of the Year”. Her candid views might surprise some, coming down pretty hard on Nicki.  “If you want to make it about race, there’s a way you could do that. But don’t make it just about yourself,” Miley said. Nicki’s tweets created a war of words with Taylor Swift, who felt that she was being personally targeted.   Continue Reading →
