Emily Ratajkowski Is the Star of Tyga’s New Music Video
Back to her video roots.
Emily Ratajkowski, the actress/Instagram A-lister/red carpet trendsetter is also a music video star — again.
Ratajkowski is back in the music video business, appearing in a minute clip for “Tequila Kisses,” a bonus track off Kylie Jenner’s ex Tyga’s album Bugatti Raww. The video shows the model posing in a number of getups (though the message of the song is clear, if repetitive, “That Gucci shit don’t matter” — something Gwyneth Paltrow also agrees with might we add) and taking Tyga’s lyrics to heart by lounging in something a little more comfortable (and NSFW).
Of course, this latest video is merely a reprisal for the model. Ratajkowski is best known in the music world for her sultry appearance in the video for Robin Thicke’s 2013 summer hit “Blurred Lines,” a song whose lyrical content has not aged well.
Though Ratajkowski isn’t shy about undressing for the camera, she’s been clear that she’s in control of how and when her body is put out there for public consumption. There’s no blurred lines here. In September she criticized French magazine Madame Figaro for photoshopping her image, writing in an Instagram post, “Everyone is uniquely beautiful in their own ways. We all have insecurities about the things that make us different from a typical ideal of beauty. I, like so many of us, try every day to work past those insecurities. I was extremely disappointed to see my lips and breasts altered in photoshop on this cover. I hope the fashion industry will finally learn to stop trying to stifle the things that make us unique and instead begin to celebrate individuality.”
Kylie Jenner was once Tyga’s go-to star for his music videos, appearing in both “Stimulated” or “Dope’d Up.” Now, over a year post-break-up, it looks like he’s found a new muse in Ratajkowski.
