Emily Ratajkowski who became famous after she was cast in a role in the famous song “Blurred Lines” is opening up about her ideas on raising girls.
In an interview with ELLE, the model talked about why she had been “relieved” when she found out that she was going to have a boy, even though she wished for a daughter. She shared in the interview that having a boy will give her less worries as a daughter requires more attention in terms of safety reasons. “My daughter is six, and I sometimes see the way that men look at her,” said Ratajkowski.
Every parent will have similar worries when having a daughter and boys are generalized as safer from the public but it does not mean boys are guaranteed safety.
Ratajkowski speaks out in her book of her encounter with Robin Thicke in blurred lines:
Previously, Emily Ratajkowski felt “frustrated” that her allegations against Robin Thicke groping her was “leaked.”
In the allegations, she said that she felt Thicke was a little drunk and she said “Suddenly, out of nowhere, I felt the coolness and foreignness of a stranger’s hands cupping my bare breasts from behind. I instinctively moved away, looking back at Robin Thicke.”
“He smiled a goofy grin and stumbled backward, his eyes concealed behind his sunglasses,”
“I pushed my chin forward and shrugged, avoiding eye contact, feeling the heat of humiliation pump through my body,” She added that the filming was enjoyable until that very moment.
This information has been written in a book published by Emily Ratajkowski.
Thicke defended by speaking out to PEOPLE saying that during the filming period of blurred lines he was abusing alcohol and substances as he was going through a divorce with his ex-wife Paul Patton.
“You don’t realize you’re not in control,” Thicke said
