America almost never met Emily Ratajkowski.
“I didn’t want to get pigeonholed into doing music videos,” Emily told The New York Times in an interview last week, illuminating her star-making turn in the music video for Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines.”
It’s not every day a model parlays a topless cameo in a music video into a legitimate career. But then, Emily is not your everyday sort of model.
Robin Thicke discovered Emily from her cover photo on a high-minded erotica magazine, which tells us more about Thicke’s reading habits than about Emily’s humble beginnings.
Now acting opposite Ben Affleck, Emily is over shedding her top, but not over posing behind giant slices of pizza.
Taking a page from other lady moguls, Emily is taking over America on her own terms, now calling herself “a brand.” Just like Hillary Clinton.
Part of that brand strategy: Opening a Go Daddy account.

Emily’s fans used to have to depend on a disorganized Tumblr page.
