Top model Kate Upton is on the cover of the September 2013 issue of Elle Magazine. In the new issue, Kate share the fallout from her first Sports Illustrated cover:

“After my first Sports Illustrated cover, I felt terrible about myself for a solid month. Every single guy I met was either married or about to be married, and I felt like I was their bachelor present or something. I’m not a toy, I’m a human. I’m not here to be used. I am a grown woman, and you need to figure your shit out.”
