Kate Moss Says She Felt ‘Vulnerable and Scared’ During Famous Calvin Klein Photo Shoot With Mark Wahlberg

Published

on

Kate Moss is opening up about her experience during her Calvin Klein ad debut in 1992 with Mark Wahlberg, saying she “completely” felt objectified, but also “vulnerable” and scared.”

During an appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs show, the 48-year-old model was asked by host Lauren Laverne about the famous campaign that launched her to stardom, and Moss said she “had not very good memories” while recalling what it was like to work with the actor then known as the rapper Marky Mark.

“He was very macho and it was all about him,” she recalled. “He had a big entourage. I was just this kind of model.”

The ad, which ran in commercials and in print all over the world, featured Moss pressing her bare breasts against his chest in a number of poses. But while that campaign proved to be the start of a long relationship with the famed underwear designer, Moss says leading up to it brought on “severe anxiety.”

“I really didn’t feel well at all before the shoot,” she said. “For like, a week or two, I couldn’t get out of bed.”

Then, during the photo shoot, Moss says she was uneasy, to say the least, about the experience. When asked if she felt objectified, Moss replied, “Yeah, completely. And vulnerable and scared.”

She added that “they played on my vulnerability,” and the fact that she was “young” and “innocent” is something that “Calvin loved,” she said.

ET has reached out to Wahlberg and Klein for comment.

It’s not the first time Moss has opened up about the ordeal. Back in 2012, Moss told Vanity Fair she “had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark and [photographer] Herb Ritts.”

Moss said she didn’t feel like herself “at all” heading into the shoot. She added, “I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die.”

She recalled going to the doctor, whom she said prescribed her Valium, but photographer Francesca Sorrenti advised her against taking Valium.

For his part, Wahlberg addressed the matter in a March 2020 interview with The Guardian, whose reporter asked the actor if he ever made up with Moss after she made her feelings known in the Vanity Fair story.

“I never really had a problem with Kate, did I?” the actor responded.

When told Moss said she hated the photo shoot and that she had a terrible time, Wahlberg seemed unaware about the interview, much less that she said she felt like she was going to die as a result of the photo shoot.

“I think I was probably a little rough around the edges. Kind of doing my thing,” Wahlberg told The Guardian. “I wasn’t very … worldly, let’s say that. But I’ve seen her and said hello. I think we saw each other at a concert here and there, we said hi and exchanged pleasantries.”

Published

Jessie James Decker has no time for comments about her kids! Over the weekend, the 34-year-old singer shared a series of pictures from her family’s trip to Mexico.

Jessie posted a photo of herself, husband Eric Decker and their three children — Vivianne, 8, Eric, 7, and Forrest, 4 — posing in their swimwear, which led some fans to talk about the kids’ abdominal muscles.

Jessie took to the comments to shut down anyone who felt the need to discuses her children’s bodies.

“From one mother to another, please don’t call my children’s appearance strange just because they don’t look the way you think they should? It’s unkind,” she wrote.

Decker had another comment for users who believed she altered her children’s appearance with an app. 

“Surely this is an app but I don’t see anyone saying as much,” she wrote with sarcasm. “Yeah I used an ‘ab’ app on my small children wtf.” 

Jessie’s comments weren’t just filled with negativity. Some of the singer’s famous friends took to the comments section to express their inspiration to hit the gym after seeing her kids. 

“Just wait till I start doing 2 a days 🙄😂 they’re ripped!!,” Kane Brown said.  

“These abs on these babies, tho!!! I gotta step my game up! Lol,” Kelly Rowland added. 

“I love these smiles. The strength. So in their bodies. Fun goals 💋💛♥️💕,” Selma Blair wrote.

Jessie also gave her followers a look at her and her husband’s beach bodies. In a video montage from their trip, the singer led with a picture of her rocking a pink swimsuit, and the NFL player going shirtless while they smiled on the beach with their kids. 

“Had the time of our lives on a much needed family vacation!!!! So grateful for the sun, fun, food, family and friends🌴🥥✨🥰 until next time🥰,” she wrote.  

In another video, Jessie gave her followers a look at her son, Forrest’s, Michael Jackson dance moves.  

“Our little superstar!! Forrest entertained everyone all week long going from Elvis to Michael Jackson!! His love of music and dance warms my heart! This kid is never stops performing or dancing no matter the time of day!!,” she captioned the video set to Michael Jackson’s song, “Bad.”

The family trip came after Jessie competed on season 31 of Dancing With the Stars. In October, ET spoke up with the singer, who shared how hard she was working to balance work, motherhood and competing for the mirrorball trophy. 

“It’s really hard! I’m not a dancer and I think I underestimated how hard this was going to be,” she told ET. “But I am proud of myself for challenging myself and every week getting out there and doing my best.”

15 Bluetooth Turntables For Spinning Your Favorite Tunes

Published

on

This also comes with a dust cover, adapter for 7″ records, aluminum plate, attachment pieces, rubber vinyl platter, and a USB B cable.

Promising review: “My teen daughter has begun to show a deep interest in music and wanted to get started with vinyl. I have a large collection of LPs, which have been well-cared for and only played on high-end equipment. Knowing that she would want to play some of those records, I was looking for a good quality turntable that would perform well and not cause any harm to the vinyl. This Sony fit the bill perfectly for both of our needs. It is a solid piece of hifi-grade equipment, is well-designed with simple and intelligent controls, and it allows for multiple means of playback connectivity. The Bluetooth connected easily to an Amazon Echo Studio speaker, which sounds great, and the Studio then reconnects immediately upon each use without having to re-pair with the turntable. Build quality is nice, it has a good weight, and has a very aesthetically pleasing and understated design. Well worth purchasing.” —nycmrx

Jake Flint’s family is mourning the loss of the country music singer following the news that he died in his sleep at the age of 37, hours after getting married. 

On Wednesday, Nov. 30, Flint’s family sent a press release to TODAY.com confirming the musician died on Nov. 26 during the early hours of the morning.

The statement also included a message from Flint’s family that said, “Our hearts are broken over this tragic loss. Jacob was a beloved son, brother, uncle, and partner to his wife, Brenda. He valued his family, friendships and living life to the fullest, which was evident in his songwriting.”

Flint’s loved ones wrote, “Every person who knew him has a story of his wit, charm, talent, and compassion. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support and the many beautiful tributes that have been shared about the impact Jacob had on many lives.”

“While we grieve what we know could have been, we’re grateful that his talent and love live on in his songs,” the statement concluded. 

According to the press release, Flint’s funeral services will be held on Dec. 5 at Cedar Point Church in Claremore, Oklahoma.

The press release said that a cause of death has not been determined. 

Flint and his wife, Brenda, tied the knot in an Oklahoma ceremony last weekend. Brenda Flint grieved the loss of her husband in a Facebook post shared on Nov. 28. 

She uploaded a video from their wedding that showed the newlyweds goofing off and dancing with each other as a photographer snapped photos of them.

“I don’t understand,” she wrote in the caption. 

In a separate post shared the next day, she said, “We should be going through wedding photos but instead I have to pick out clothes to bury my husband in. People aren’t meant to feel this much pain. My heart is gone and I just really need him to come back.” 

She wrote, “ I can’t take much more. I need him here.”

Flint, who was born and raised in Oklahoma, released his first album in 2015, titled “I’m Not Okay.” He then released an eponymous record in 2020 and followed it with two live albums. His most recent album was 2021’s “Live and Socially Distanced at Mercury Lounge.” He was also named “Breakout Artist of the Year” at the 2019 We Are Tulsa Music Awards. 

His manager, Brenda Cline,” called the late musician a “rising star” in a statement and celebrated his positive attitude.

“He had a humble personality, lovable nature, and the ability to keep you laughing till your sides hurt,” she said. 

Publicist Clif Doyal praised Flint for being “a true ambassador of the Oklahoma and Texas Red Dirt music scene.” 

“With his infectious smile and disarming sense of humor, he was loved by many, and I believe that, along with his music, will be his lasting legacy,” Doyal wrote.
