Emily Ratajkowski was pretty much an unknown until her appearance in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video in 2013.
The song was one of the year's inescapable hits, and the video – notably featuring a topless Ratajkowski – has been viewed more than 257 million times.
Such a reaction has led many to speculate that Sports Illustrated would be featuring Ratajkowski in its 50th anniversary swimsuit issue, which hits newsstands Feb. 11.

The song of the summer – Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" – was a no-brainer for a record of the year nod when the 2014 Grammy nominations were announced Friday night during a live concert at the Nokia Theater in L.A.
But Miley Cyrus, whose headline-making songs "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball" were eligible, was shut out of the major categories.
Jay-Z leads the pack with nine nominations, Justin Timberlake, Kendrick Lamar and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis scored seven apiece while newcomer Lorde received four.

The ambitious project, which Kim says took 180 hours, seamlessly blends "Blurred Lines," "Get Lucky," "We Can't Stop," "Royals" and seemingly every other chart-topper from this year ... including two from Taylor Swift, who was omitted from Kim's 2012 medley.

It's not every awards show where the ratio of cowboy hats per head outnumbers, well, everything else. Throw in a lot of boots and big hair and songs referencing various types of automobiles, and we reckon your Honky Tonk Badonkadonk's definitely at the CMA Awards.

It wouldn't be a music awards show – even a country one – without giving a nod to the year's biggest hit.
"Blurred Lines" got some love during Wednesday night's CMA Awards in Nashville, Tenn., when hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley kicked off the night with a parody of Robin Thicke's party anthem. The new version "Duck Lines" was a nod to the cast of A&E's Duck Dynasty.
The reality family joined the hosts on stage for the silly song, which replaced "I know you want it," with "I know you hunt it," and used "You're a country girl," instead of "You're a good girl." The words "Quack, quack, quack" replaced "Hey, hey, hey."

Robin Thicke's loved-up lyrics came to life this weekend when he stepped out with wife Paula Patton in Chicago.
After the "Blurred Lines" singer's performance at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, he joined the Baggage Claim actress for a romantic dinner at Chicago Cut Steakhouse on Saturday.
"They were kissing throughout dinner," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "At one point, they even stepped outside to stand over the river and hold hands."
Thicke opted for salad and dover sole, while Patton enjoyed salad and crab legs.
"They looked very much in love," the source adds.

Like father like son? It sure seems that way to Paula Patton.
The 2 Guns star tells PEOPLE that little Julian Fuego, her 3-year-old son with Robin Thicke, is following in the singer's footsteps.
"He's an extrovert and he wants to be just like Daddy," she says. "He sings and makes up his own songs. He's got a song called 'Pop Song.' It's all choruses. He certainly got the gift from Daddy."

"Blurred Lines" is the song of the summer, and Robin Thicke's sexy video has been parodied by everyone from Jimmy Kimmel to a pack of dogs. Thursday, the singer took his hit in a new direction when he teamed with Jimmy Fallon and the Roots on Late Night.
They performed it using classroom instruments – and it was awesome. With new dad Fallon, 38, on a wooden block and Casio keyboard and Thicke, 36, on spoons, the group rocked it out. The Roots accompanied the pair on kids' noisemakers including a kazoo, xylophone, recorder, maracas, ukulele and cowbell.

Alan Thicke has plenty of reasons to be channeling his inner Jason Seaver. As the proud father of crooner Robin Thicke whose latest single, "Blurred Lines", has established itself as the song of the summer, the 66-year-old actor is reveling in his son's success.
"I've related to it, and understood it, and was able to feel it, up until only the last couple of weeks," the elder Thicke tells PEOPLE while attending the 15th Annual DesignCare event benefiting The HollyRod Foundation.
"He has now projected himself into a stratosphere, into another level, having raised the bar, the family brand, to unimaginable heights."
