We all know that the supermodel is never afraid to stand up for what she believes in. She recently posted into her Instagram account that New York Magazine has published 'Buying Myself Back', one of her essays about image, power, and consent. It was replicated on media around the world not only due to her fame, but her important words. Keep scrolling to know all about it!
Maybe you think that celebrities spent all their quarantine taking selfies or enjoying their luxurious lives, that wouldn't be bad.
Nevertheless, Emily has been reading and working in the writing of some essays for an upcoming book. "I have probably ten [essays]" explained she in an recent interview.
'Buying Myself Back' is one of the essays that she wrote, in which she talks about how a model buys herself. In there, she states that she has become more familiar with her image under the paparazzi's lenses than in the mirror. Such strong statements!
The text was published by New York Magazine, making her really proud and happy about her work. In her latest Instagram post, she thanked them for all the opportunity and the support.
There are no doubts that being a model must be though. It's crazy that you have to learn to live with the cameras following you everywhere or waiting for you outside your house.
We think that reading her essay helps us to be in her shoes for a while and respect more her feelings. She is one of the first celebrities in talking about it publicly and so loud and clear. Stars are starting to take political sides in several areas like politics, racism and equality. Alongside with singer Billie Eilish, they stand for a new political class of celebrities, that use their fame to compromise and create awareness on several deep issues on the United States society.
That's quite a change from the 1980's and 1990's where sports star Michael Jordan for example didn't stand a position concerning the elections. Thank you, Em!
