…EV­ERY­ONE WANTED A BIG BOOTY

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - REPORTAGE - By SI­BONGILE MAFU, colum­nist / News24.com

THE BOOTY. The badonkadonk. The der­rière. For some rea­son a mag­ni­fy­ing glass was placed on booties this year. Whether it was in mu­sic videos, on In­sta­gram, in mag­a­zines or on mu­sic tours, if it didn’t fea­ture a round rear, we weren’t in­ter­ested. Kim Kar­dashian West stepped up her hot­ness quota with her provoca­tive Pa­per mag­a­zine cover, Boity Thulo trended with the pho­to­graph of her bum in

MC’s 2014 Naked is­sue and Mu­vhango’s Buhle Sa­muels set Twit­ter ablaze after her shapely across our TVs. Even those who’ve been left want­ing in the der­rière area – like dear Mi­ley Cyrus and Tay­lor Swift – joined the booty train. Mi­ley wore a fake pos­te­rior (mock­ing Nicki Mi­naj) on stage dur­ing her Bangerz tour. The joke was on her, though, as the fake tush made her fall over. Tay­lor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off ’ video saw her at­tempt to twerk, but it just looked like she was jerk­ing her waist from side to side. Both painful and de­light­ful to watch.

There are no signs of booty-fa­tigue just yet, so ex­pect to see gym-loads of women do­ing squats like their lives de­pended on it.
