In a new interview with Alexa Chung, Kate Upton revealed her viral "Cat Daddy" video was never supposed to hit the web.  Chung, who was interviewing Upton for British Vogue, writes that the video was a behind-the-scenes, just-for-fun thing from a photo shoot with Terry Richardson.  The model reportedly confronted the controversial photographer when the video started to become a viral sensation. "I was like, 'That was disrespectful, you could have told me!'" Upton told Chung. "Now, obviously, it's fine," she added. (That's likely because the video arguably skyrocketed Upton into supermodel fame.) E! notes that when the video came out in 2012, Upton tweeted about it. "My Cat Daddy!!! directed by Terry Richardson," she wrote, linking to the video. But, the clip was also removed for a while after it first hit YouTube. We're all just gonna have to take Upton's word for it on this one. [British Vogue]
