Kate Upton has to be the model face of 2012 being featured on Sports Illustrated, Muse and a host of other popular mags, so it was just a matter of time before she landed the mother of men's magazine covers GQ. The photo was released for the July cover and Kate is doing what she does best, posing in a sexy manner in a bikini top. In the magazine, Kate talks wearing bikinis and the best thing she had done since becoming famous.
“I grew up in Florida riding horses, so for the majority of my life I was either in boots and jeans or a bathing suit. I understand why my male followers like me.… It’s like any job. You find your strengths and play them up."
"For the GQ photo shoot, we were on that ride where the seat spins while the actual ride is spinning, and I'm wearing a one-piece. And all of a sudden the whole entire top falls off! I'm holding myself, laughing, turning bright red, but a lot of people are watching, so they kicked us out of the Santa Monica Pier—it was so embarrassing…You wouldn't think that would happen with a one-piece!"
The cover, of course, is racy to say the least, and is sure to cause some upheaval. The edition is celebrating the Fourth of July and probably sure to be a best-seller! The edition goes on sale June 26, 2012
