Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Models,

Kate UptonKate Upton was told she was "too American" to be a model.

The curvy beauty - who is now one of the most recognizable pin-ups in the world - was outraged when she was initially rejected from a major agency who assumed she would be too ''lazy'' because of her nationality.

"I'm not going to name names, but one agency told me, 'You're too American, and everybody knows American women are lazy.' I was so offended! I've never been so offended! I was like, 'You know that you're in America, right?' And it wasn't 'American models - it was 'American women are lazy,' period! I feel like a lot of women would disagree with that. A lot!" she revealed.

Kate, 21, headed straight to International Management Group - which is home to supermodels Kate Moss, Gisele Bundchen and Karlie Kloss - after the shocking rejection, and was signed on the spot.

Chris Brown Revokes Retirement?

Chris BrownChris Brown appears to have revoked his intention to retire.

The "Beautiful People" singer said he was quitting music last month claiming people were too caught up with his private life to pay attention to his tracks, but the lure of the studio seems to have proved too great to keep him away for long. "One thing you can't do is make more songs than me. I'ma robot in da booth. Limiting your self is the worst thing u can do. #BEGREAT" he wrote on Twitter. "The party don't ever stop so the show must continue!"

Chris, 24, then retweeted a link to a new single he features on, "Show Me" by Los Angeles rapper Kid Ink.

The positive outlook comes a month after Chris said he was "tired of being famous" and wants to stop after his upcoming album X because he's fed up of still hitting the headlines for the domestic violence altercation he had with ex-girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.
