Butts, butts, butts. They’re everywhere! Last week, J.Lo and Iggy Izalea released an appropriately gluteal teaser for their upcoming music video for “Booty.” Just a week before, Sofia Vergara stood on a spinning pedestal at the Emmy’s, playfully patting her shapely rear. The day before, Beyoncé performed at the MTV Video Music Awards alongside a bunch of gilded, bethonged backsides doing the splits. Hold on, there’s more.
Marvel introduced a cover for “Spider-Woman” featuring the heroine in a beyond-skin-tight suit and her round booty in the air. The same day, Nicki Minaj premiered the video for “Anaconda,” which featured a bunch of women shaking their butts in the jungle and causing earthquakes. There’s Meghan Trainor’s hit “All About That Bass,” which was catapulted up the Billboard Hot 100 last month and boasts of having “all the right junk in all the right places.” The song includes the lines, “Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size/She says, ‘Boys like a little more booty to hold at night.’” And, of course, Taylor Swift controversially crawled under a bunch of black women shaking their butts in her video for “Shake It Off.”
