“I had a hard time writing that essay for a bunch of different reasons.”
In the leaked excerpt, which was first revealed by The Sunday Times, Emily wrote about an alleged incident the place Robin returned drunk to the “Blurred Lines” set and groped her “out of nowhere.”
The passage seems in a wider chapter of My Body referred to as “Blurred Lines.”
As My Body is now accessible to preorder, Emily hosted a Q&A on Instagram yesterday that addressed her followers early inquiries concerning the e-book.
Responding to 1 individual’s query, asking why she selected to call a chapter after Robin’s music, she defined that the title and its content material signify an “evolution of [her] beliefs and politics.”
“I had a hard time writing that essay for a bunch of different reasons,” Emily defined. “But ultimately I decided to include it in the book because my experience on the BL set and how I talked about it says so much about the evolution of my beliefs and politics.”
“Most of my jobs at that point kinda sucked — I was either shooting e-commerce for online stores where I felt like nothing more than a mannequin or I’d be in lingerie while some middle-aged male photographers told me pout,” she stated, including, “BL was different.”
“I was surrounded by women I liked and trusted,” Emily continued. “I had fun on set, being a sexy girl in a music video made me feel hot and cool and powerful. I told the world that the experience was empowering. In many ways it was.”
