It’s been a year since Emily Ratajkowski parlayed a one-day gig on a Robin Thicke video into worldwide mega-bombshell status, and she would like to thank you, men of earth, for all the love. But could you maybe stop telling her she’s “the hottest bitch in this place”? GQ’s Daniel Riley finds that she’s a lot more than just a sexy distraction. Excerpts:
On the Blurred Lines video:
“I didn’t want to do it at first, but I talked to the director and I understood what it was.”
“I do like it. But if there’s one thing I’d request, it’s for people who see me out to not be, like, You’re the hottest bitch in this place. When it comes on in a bar, I run into the bathroom and hide.”
On the upcoming Entourage movie:
“That show’s always been so funny to me. I’m playing myself, and they’ve got me in an Aston Martin. I drive a Nissan Versa and would never spend real money on a car, because I destroy things. So there’s this weird version of yourself. Hollywood fetishizing you and itself—this box within a box. There is winter in L.A., there is rain in L.A. But there is no rain on Entourage.”
“Generally, I just think there is a real lacking in men knowing how to hit on women. I have this whole running joke with someone: What Would Denzel Do? Like, you don’t think about how many days you should wait to call the girl—you just do it when you want. Fuckin’ Denzel. You do what you want, you know what you want.”
“Bars are bad. Generally, people don’t want to be embarrassing. But when there’s alcohol involved and group mentality, it can be a little weird. Guys will say, ‘You know who you look like…,’ and then word spreads. Or guys do this thing where they go, ‘I would love to take a picture of you for my friend.’ And then they get out their phone and their hand’s shaking, and I’m like, ‘You’re taking this for your friend? I thought you didn’t care.’?” – Read more
Meet the lovely Mexican actress and singer Maite Perroni. She has had several roles in Mexican television shows including: La Gata, Cachito de cielo, Triunfo del amor and Mujeres asesinas.

Jhene Aiko is the fantasy girl who rappers are always complaining doesn’t exist. The singer chats with GQ‘s Mark Anthony Green about men, her debut solo album, and smoking weed in the May issue.
On what she looks for in a man:
“If a man has a chef and maid, then I can’t practice my domestic powers. Mostly, I just don’t want a guy who would waste money.”
On her interests:
“I probably smoke weed twice a week and have no problem sleeping for ten hours.”
On her album, Souled Out:
“There’s no fucking around with this album.” – Read more
