If there’s one thing you can say about most of our current social media sweethearts and paparazzi pleasers, they tend to have something really big in common. Like, really big. We’re talking about their booties, and you may have noticed that there is a definite swell going on with our favorite celebrities.
Whether they are a Kardashian, a singer/rapper, or even an adult entertainer, lots of ladies these days seem to be packing a lot of junk in their trunk. Ever since Jennifer Lopez first wowed us with those Latina curves, more and more people are getting famous with a butt that more or less requires its own parking space. But is it all just a big coincidence, or are our ladies getting a little bit of help in that department?
Of course, we wouldn’t blame them if they did – it takes a lot of squats to build up something like that, and these girls have busy schedules. It’s tough to keep up with the Kardashians! When it looks like a big derriere is the only way to make sure the cameras are all on you, it’s only to be expected that those derrieres are going to get bigger and bigger. It’s not so much a question of shaking what your mama gave you, but making something bigger to shake! So the question is, which of our favorite starlets have a natural talent – and which of them are relying on their surgeon friends for a bit of a boost?
13 Kylie Jenner
Kylie came under suspicion recently after posting a selfie wearing Spanx on Snapchat. The immediate response from fans was that there was something a little suspicious about the shot – namely, the line of the curve around her booty, which is suggestive of butt pads. She strongly denied that she was wearing any, claiming it was just the natural effect of the Spanx. Still, she does look perhaps a little rounder than usual. We already know she’s had lip fillers done, and she denied those at first, too, so we can’t really trust what she has to say on the subject.
12 Blac Chyna
When your booty could be used as a shelf to hold your drinks, that’s when chins are going to wag. A lot of people are certainly talking about Blac Chyna and the possibility of augmentation, especially after she recently posted an image comparing her face at 16 and 27. The difference is so huge that a lot of people think it could only have been achieved with surgery, particularly on her nose. If that is so, it’s not a big leap to imagine procedures being done elsewhere on her body. It can’t be denied that she looks pretty suspicious right now.
11 Iggy Azalea
Iggy admitted that she had had her breasts augmented, but that only lifted the lid on more speculation. As soon as she made the statement that she’d had the work done, as well as a nose job, others were clamoring for her to come clean about her butt. Her response? She claims that the recent apparent change in her rear end is because of clever tailoring. According to her, it’s all because she has her clothes custom-made, thanks to the fact that she has a larger size for her bottom than her top. Those who refute the claim say she’s just trying to fit in to the black-dominated rap industry by enhancing her figure.
10 Kim Kardashian
The rumors about Kim’s booty were so fierce that she ended up having to get an x-ray done on Keeping Up With The Kardashians to prove it was all real. On the episode, she said, "Today I am going to have a butt x-ray to prove to the world it's real. This is a really crazy request but my sisters have dared me to get an ass x-ray because of all the rumours it's not real. If I were to have a fake ass, wouldn't it be dimple free?" A butt lift could still have been performed however, as this involves injecting fat taken from elsewhere on the body.
9 Coco Austin
Ice T’s wife apparently had enough of the rumors surrounding her backside, so she decided to try and prove it to be real on television. She had a plastic surgeon come in to Ice & Coco, to inspect her booty in front of an audience. After having a quick feel, he delivered his verdict. "Based on anatomy and the muscles — there are three muscles there, I can feel them all. There's not an implant there. I don't feel fat injected," Dr Chris Johnson said. "I can certify that this is a real, natural butt!" We’ll just have to take his word for it.
8 Heidi Montag
This one isn’t just a rumor, but actually a confirmed fact. Heidi Montag made a firm bid for the title of plastic surgery queen back in 2007, when she went under the knife for a total of 10 procedures in one day. These included a butt augmentation, as well as further breast updates on top of existing surgeries. The one-time star of The Hills was bidding for lasting fame, but it didn’t work so well. Instead, she turned herself into a punchline that no one cared about for much longer after her life-risking stunt. It was later revealed she almost died on the table thanks to an overdose of Demerol.
7 Jennifer Lopez
This is one rumor that seems to have been defeated, though when you win Rear of the Year so many times, there’s always going to be a question mark or two. J-Lo’s amazing booty had us all in awe and was really responsible for the trend towards bigger butts becoming more popular. She was hounded by rumors of having had work done, but it seems that she’s totally natural in this area. Those are some killer Latina curves that can only be created by the perfect mix of genes! J-Lo is definitely one lucky lady for having been gifted this body.
6 Nicki Minaj
Where do we start with Nicki? There have been a whole lot of rumors about her booty being fake, as well as photographs circulating of her live performances which claim to show her butt pads. It all started with the Fashion Rocks show in 2014, when a dance move involving a chair caused her to look very odd. It seemed anatomically false, and that led to reports of butt pads being used – which had allegedly shifted around while she moved. If it’s true, it would destroy a huge part of her persona, which is based all around her curvaceous body.
5 Jenna Jameson
As part of the adult industry, it’s obvious that you have to keep a perfect-looking body if you want to stay famous. Jenna Jameson clearly decided that her booty wasn’t big enough, as she underwent surgery to put a little more junk in her trunk. Absolutely no one was fooled at all by her implants, and though she at first pretended that nothing had been done, she finally admitted it a couple of years later. Her penchant for wearing bodycon dresses both before and after the augmentation meant that she really had no way to get away with the denial.
4 Lil' Kim
Lil' Kim has had her fair share of body-baring outfits, and even carried on the trend back when it wasn’t a red carpet norm. She brought the shock factor on a regular basis, often leaving very little to the imagination. That’s probably why so much attention has been paid to her butt, and it does seem as though she might have had a little bit of help – though she denies it. She even hit back at recent criticism after a photograph claiming to show her larger booty turned out to have been Photoshopped for effect, dismissing the rumors as fake.
3 Karissa Shannon
Karissa and Kristina Shannon are Playmates and twin sisters, so it was always going to be a little bit suspicious if one of them turned up with a bigger booty than the other. They have both admitted to breast augmentations and nose jobs – which were apparently botched by surgeons, leaving them no longer looking identical. It would not be a surprise to find out they had work done on their rears as well. They’re now focused on fixing their previous surgeries in order to be identical once more. It’s not been made clear whether this includes butt implants or not.
2 Khloe Kardashian
Is there any of the Kardashian/Jenner clan who hasn’t been accused of getting surgery? Khloe is really just the latest in a long line of these siblings to show up with what looks like a rounder and bigger butt. Surgeons have speculated in the press that she may have had a Brazilian Butt Lift or even some implants, though she still claims it’s just down to her punishing squats regime. She actually says she’s “always had an ass”, though it does seem to have grown somewhat lately compared to how it was a few years back. We’ll let you be the judge on this one!
1 Amber Rose
Take a look back at Amber’s booty when she was dating Kanye West, and then compare it to more recent photographs after her split from Wiz Khalifa. See a difference? Well, we certainly do! While it could be argued that the model and former stripper has beefed up in a lot of other areas as well, and has gone through the potentially body-altering changes of pregnancy, she really does seem to have a lot more junk in the trunk. Recently an appearance on RuPaul’s Good Work saw her allowing the host to cop a feel, with him declaring that it seemed real enough to him.
