This morning the New York Post unleashed an attack on Kate Upton, America's model, citing an unnamed source calling Upton a "diva" who "thinks she’s better than everyone because she’s an actress."
"Kate demanded that if she did the shoot, that she absolutely must get the [Sports Illustrated] cover," the source said. "She was being a big f—king diva. She thinks she’s better than everyone because she’s an actress."
I must correct this story. First, Upton is not an actress. She is a fantastic actress. Also, for the record, Upton is better than everyone else.
If she wants to be on the cover of the swimsuit edition, she goes on the cover of the swimsuit edition. Why this is even a question is beyond me.
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I rest my case.
Calling Upton a "diva" for wanting to be on the SI cover would be like criticizing Michael Jordan for wanting to take the last shot in game 7.
The magazine did not confirm any of the anti-Upton garbage put forth by the Post, but it didn't say that Upton would be on the cover either.
"t’s that time of year again," said a spokesman. "Who is in, who’s on the cover, what will they do next? Everyone has a guess, and that’s all this is."
I think they will ultimately decide that Upton has what it takes to return to the cover of this year's mag.
And hey Kate, if you ever want to be the cover photo on the Washington Free Beacon for a day (or a week, or maybe a whole month), just shoot me an email and we will hook it up.
