Emily Ratajkowski has shared her anguish over her decision to accuse Robin Thicke of groping her in her new book, saying her 'beliefs and politics evolved' to the point where she couldn't remain silent any longer. 

Ratajkowski was 21 years old when she danced topless in the video for the song, a massive hit that spent 12 weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100.

Earlier this month, the model accused singer Robin Thicke, 44, of 'groping' her bare breasts as they shot the suggestive clip in 2013.

On Thursday, she took to Instagram to offer a further explanation of why she made the claim. 

She said she included an essay about her experiences on set in her new book, My Body, because 'it says so much about the evolution of my beliefs and politics.' 

'I had a hard time writing that essay for a bunch of different reasons,' Emily began in a lengthy post shared during an Instagram Q&A on Thursday

'I had a hard time writing that essay for a bunch of different reasons,' Emily began in a lengthy post shared during an Instagram Q&A on Thursday.

Ratajkowski, 30, said that before the video, 'most of my jobs at that point kind of 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 photographer's [sic] told me to pout,' she recalled in the essay, aptly titled after the hit song.   

In the music video, Ratjkowski and fellow models Elle Evans and Jessi M'Bengue famously danced topless with Thicke and collaborators Pharrell and rapper TI. 

The women paraded in front of a balloon sign reading: 'Robin Thicke has a big d***.'

At one point in the video, Thicke whispers in Ratajkowski's ear: 'I know you want it,' a line that critics say perpetuates rape culture and got the song banned from multiple universities. 

Ratajkowski thought '[Blurred Lines] was different' because she 'was surrounded by women I liked and trusted' and she actually 'had fun on set,' she writes.

She continued: '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.'

To close out her post, Ratajkowski told her followers that they'd 'have to read the essay to fully understand the other sides to my experience.'

On a lighter note, one of Emily's fans informed her during the Q&A that they had 'cited one of [her] essays for my MFA thesis.' 

The fan then thanked Emily and expressed their excitement over getting their hands on the book, which hits shelves on November 9, according to Amazon.

The $18.29 book has gotten rave reviews from critics.
