Emily Ratajkowski Doesn't "Believe in Straight People"
The model and author launches her podcast today.
Is there anything Emily Ratajkowksi can’t do? The model and best-selling author is launching her own podcast, High Low with Emrata, today and is making headlines for stating that she doesn’t “really believe in straight people.”
This isn’t the first time the California native’s sexuality has come into question as the brunette bombshell cheekily participated in TikTok‘s “green couch” trend. For those who actively avoid the social media platform, the viral joke implied that if you owned a green couch, chances are you’re queer. The model posed with her friend and hilarious Showtime host Ziwe, seemingly nodding to the fluidity of her attractions.
When asked about the internet joke by Harper’s Bazaar for their November issue, Ratajkowski replied, “I think sexuality is on a sliding scale. I don’t really believe in straight people. My girlfriend came over and was like, ‘B-h, have you seen the green-couch thing?’ She was laughing at me because my green couch is so big.”
Never one to shy away from sharing her true thoughts and feelings, no matter how divisive, EmRata’s upcoming podcast resists putting her into the confining categories of a “good feminist” and a bad one. As a public figure who makes a living from their appearance, the My Body author is making no attempts to fit into a box with her latest venture.
The podcast will be feature two weekly episodes as every Tuesday, the multi-hyphenate will host intimate conversations with special guests, while the week’s second episode will be a solo podcast, discussing what EmRata is thinking about the most that week. Subscribers will be treated to a third exclusive episode where she’ll answer comments, questions and DMs.
