JULY 4 2012 : US Independence Day
Kate Upton in a AMERICAN FLAG BIKINI sucking on a red white and blue ice pop nearly "crashed the internet" according to GQ magazine's twitter feed, which promoted July's covergirl with twee-ful glee. Love it or hate it, and people did both, the cover drew national attention.
Because section eight of the U.S. Flag code states "the flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery," the image courts not only ogling but enough controversy to eek out a little extra attention.
