Kate Upton dances in the “Cat Daddy” Video
Kate Upton’s “Cat Daddy” video might have sped up her path to fame, but when the supermodel was doing her silly bikini dance, she had no idea it would be seen by millions. In 2012 Kate Upton was 19 years old, when she shot with Terry Richardson.
Richardson took a video of her “behind the scenes” doing the “Cat Daddy” while in a red bikini, he then posted the cheeky video on YouTube, but the model had no idea he had planned on sharing it publicly and confronted him about it. “Yes, I did. I was like, ‘That was disrespectful, you could have told me!'” she told Alexa Chung in an interview for British Vogue. “Now, obviously, it’s fine.”
After a brief ban by YouTube because of its supposed explicit nature, the video went on to rack up more than 22 million views and the rest is history. As for Richardson, he doesn’t take credit for Upton’s celebrity: “No. Kate was born a star.”
