The meteroric rise of Kate Upton has not only been great to look at, it’s sometimes amusing to listen to. Take her recent interview on 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C., for instance. Not only was in awkward, but kind of weird — at one point the host asked Upton if she had any questions for him. Huh?

Do you have any questions for me?

“Oh, OK. Um, do you like my cover this year?”

Yes, I do. I was a fan of it, because we’ve seen a lot of bathing suits. We haven’t seen the arctic jacket.

“Did you think my arctic was hotter than just my straight bikini last year?”

I’m going to say no to that, but I like that they’re not afraid to change it up.

Upton was also subjected to questions about: penguins, baseball, her favorite movie (The Thomas Crowne Affair), Star Wars, and of course body paint.

“I think the first year I did body paint it was a little bit uncomfortable. But … the artist is so sweet and makes everyone feel comfortable that it seems natural and fun. You realize that it is just an artistic technique. … The uncomfortable thing is going to shoot it after because you feel naked, because you are naked. That’s where it gets uncomfortable.”

    She was able to figure out that she was naked because she was naked. What a brain.She quailfied to be in Odrama’s Cabinet. Replaces Hillary, does a better Dougie Dance.

      Thanks for confirming you can’t have a conversation about anything without spewing hate, it is so confirming. This is why your party has lost and will lose every important election for years to come.

        We lost ? We own the House and soon the Senate. And still most days the Supreme court.
        More that half of the state governors are Republicans too. But Odrama did win his March Madness bracket. While all my friends(mostly Democrats, lost their homes) because the banks that Timmy Gieger threw $7.7 Trillion to wouldn’t refinance them. Not smart to give $$ with NO strings attached.Chinese will own us soon. Nee ha ma honky ?

    Leave it to a white trash mongoloid to turn a Kate Upton fluff piece into political rhetoric. Wow. Super models aren’t Mensa members? Thanks for that.
