Some are saying Sports Illustrated's new swimsuit issue cover model, Kate Upton, is a breath of fresh air with her healthy curves, compared to the stick-thin models we're all used to. Others think the 19-year-old is an over-hyped tease who won't tell us whether or not she's dating Mark Sanchez. Check out this latest photo shoot of Upton in Esquire and tell us which side you're on.
The cat is out of the bag! Kate Upton is this year's smokeshow, according to the famous magazine.
Kate Upton has a lot of things to be proud of. The 19-year-old model has starred in Guess Clothing campaigns and the Victoria's Secret fashion show. She was in Tower Heist with Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy (okay, maybe not proud of this one) and was voted 2011 Rookie Of the Year for her body paint pictures in last year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Now, the Michigan native can go one better than SI Rookie of the Year as she has just been revealed as the SI Swimsuit Edition Cover Girl for 2012.

Portuguese star gets ready for the World Cup with a Russian beauty. But what about Kim Kardashian?
Cristiano Ronaldo, the highest-paid athlete in the world, has his flag-emblazoned knickers in a bunch over the Vanity Fair cover he shares with Ivory Coast's Didier Drogba, but he has a new shoulder to cry on: Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue model Irina Shayk. Kim Kardashian is somewhere stamping her foot with rage, since she was cavorting with Cristiano just last month.
My politics dictate that no human being should ever be robbed of his or her dignity by being objectified. Reducing someone to an erotic symbol deprives the person of his or her inherent worth and nullifies any effort he or she makes to rise above the ordinariness of human life. People should be recognized for their talents; when they excel in public endeavors, they shouldn’t win even greater accolades for their sexual appeal, nor be disgraced for their lack of it. Sexual objectification of any person in any form should be deemed unacceptable.
Unless the person’s an athlete. Then we should objectify them ‘til the cows come home.
Youngish to middle-aged men owe a lot to both Sports Illustrated and Kathy Ireland.
The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has been rocking newsstands since 1964. Back in the day, it was the only place for a good, clean, young fella to have a look at a wildly out-of-his league woman in a bathing suit and pretend he was there for the articles. Unfortunately, since the Internet has come around, the magazine means less and less to youngsters and more to advertisers and old-timers.
