Big butts have become widely accepted in the mainstream media in recent years, so it is no surprise that having bigger assets is popular. Stars like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian have been praised for their curves and items like the booty pop have been making millions on the market. Big butts have always been popular in my neighborhood, but the girls that didn't have them weren't devastated by the absence of a big booty. Lately it seems black women are dissing what their mama's gave them and seeking ways to enlarge their derierre. Most recently the rapper we love to hate, Nicki Minaj has been accused of having butt injections and the "Bootylicious" singer herself, Beyonce has been accused of wearing butt pads.
To me, Nicki's butt looks faker than a three dollar bill. Everything about her shape screams unnatural. On the other hand, Beyonce has always had a nice size backside and curves to boot. It wasn't until this picture emerged a few weeks ago that my eyebrow raised:
Bey, what's up with that unsightly bulge in your shorts? Are black women going the extra mile to put a lil' junk in their trunks? Would you rock a butt pad or get injections? Sound off in the poll on the upper right.
