Cat Daddy: Why do beautiful women like Kate Upton do sexy things for Terry Richardson?

Kate, did Terry ask you to do this one more time, only naked?

By now, a video of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover girl Kate Upton doing a sexy little dance in an even sexier and even littler bikini has gone completely viral.

Who is the mastermind behind this digital treasure? Why, it’s sir Terry Richardson, infamous professional creepy guy. If you don’t know much about Terry Richardson, other than that he’s the guy who got to watch Kate do the “Cat Daddy” in person, then allow us to offer some background. Prepare to be skeeved out.

Richardson is a well-known photographer who has a long and documented history of persuading young girls to pose naked by getting naked himself. His unorthodox approach to nude photo shoots has permanently landed him on the list of fashion’s creepiest photographers. His 1980′s style eye wear and bushy face caterpillar doesn’t help, either.

He’s been publicly accused of sexual harassment and one model even spoke out about him asking her to show him her tampon and also give him a hand job during one photo shoot, all while his staffers stood around watching, egging her on, like this was the most natural, normal thing in the world. He’s been quoted as saying, “It’s not who you know. It’s who you blow,” about the fashion world.

Somehow, though, Richardson has managed to photograph some of the most influential and beautiful celebrities in the world. His portfolio includes sexy, and often provocative shots of Pamela Anderson, Lindsay Lohan, Kate Moss, Amy Winehouse, Josie Maran, and Mary-Kate Olsen. He’s also photographed (though not as provocatively) Barack Obama, James Franco and Michael Douglas, just to name a few. How does this man do it? Sure, his work is widely circulated and well-known — but for already established celebs who aren’t trying to break onto the scene, we can’t help but wonder how they get lured into the dark, bizarre, and reportedly uncomfortable, world of Terry Richardson.

Now, Richardson adds Kate Upton to his collection of celebrities he’s managed to capture in edgy, sexual lights. And, as always, Richardson’s work is turning heads.
