If you encounter Emily Ratajkowski at a party or out shopping, whatever you do, don't mention how much you loved her in "Blurred Lines." In the latest issue of InStyle UK, the ridiculously gorgeous LA talent reveals her annoyance with the controversial 2013 Robin Thicke music video:

I wasn’t into the idea at all at first. I think I came off as a bit annoyed in the video. Now, it’s the bane of my existence. When anyone comes up to me about "Blurred Lines", I’m like, are we seriously talking about a video from three years ago?

In other words, you're going to have to think of a different icebreaker if you want to get on her good side. To help spark creativity, here are a few alternative questions that may pique her interest:

1. What's your favorite emoji?

2. What's your favorite Italian dish?

3. What's your gorgeous mom's best beauty secret?

4. Where do you score all your awesome art?

5. What's your all-time favorite cheesy wedding song? This one?
