For the past decade supermodel sensation, Emily Ratajakowski aka Emrata, has been known for her undeniable hotness. She could be seen prancing around in her personal swimwear line, “Inamorata,” or more recently with her son Sylvester, and dog Columbo. But Emrata is done being gawked at and known just for her appearance. If you’ve read her New York Times bestselling memoir, “My Body” you should be well aware of the businesswoman, actress and supermodel’s stance as a feminist. Let women do whatever they want! Emily Ratajakowski explores this along with everything else you and your friends talk about in her new podcast “High Low” with Sony Pictures.
Ratajakowski has grappled with others’ perceptions of her for her entire life and is here to tell you that no matter what you do, people will talk s***. When she was just a supermodel she had “nothing to say” and when she revealed herself as a bestselling author she was “tone-deaf.”
Ratajakowski is a living testament to the message she is championing. When women do something for themselves in any way to make themselves feel or look better, it is immediately attributed to their so-called need for male validation.
When speaking on the topic in an interview with Elite Daily, Emily Ratajakowski says, “That’s just the nature of the world we live in. Unfortunately, the things that make me feel good are often things that will be perceived as appealing to men, like wearing makeup. But I just don’t care anymore. If it feels good to me, I’m going to do it.”
And that’s just what her new podcast is. Ratajakowski meets with other women such as Julia Fox and Alex Cooper, as well as her best friend (who’s normal just like us!), to discuss “low-brow” topics through a “high-brow” lens. The tone is reminiscent of high school mean girls conversing after their first AP Government class, but isn’t that how a lot of people feel these days? Trying to declare “wokeness” and political understanding whilst simultaneously strutting in Urban Outfitters’ new arrivals. We advise you to sit down and listen before judging the supermodel we know you’ve stalked on Instagram.
