Is it any surprise that Diddy is a derriere connoisseur?
The rapper recently raved about the rump of his bootylicious ex, Jennifer Lopez. During an interview with Access Hollywood, Diddy watched a clip of J.Lo’s “Booty” music video. The artist formerly known as Puff Daddy dated Jennifer Lopez back in 1999, and apparently he harbors no bitter feelings toward his ex. Diddy completely ignored poor Iggy Azalea while freaking out over his ex’s most famous asset.
“Oh my God, oh my God! I am so lucky to have that great woman in my history. She is one of the greatest I’ve ever seen… [Her booty] is great. It’s a work of art. It’s something that will go down in history. Also her talent, her drive, her determination. She will never give up. She’s a great friend of mine… that thing is just incredible.”
Access Hollywood just couldn’t resist asking Diddy to compare Jennifer Lopez’s booty to Kim Kardashian’s moneymaker, and the rapper didn’t try to be very diplomatic when he was asked if Kim K’s backside is just as worthy of praise as J.Lo’s junk in the trunk.
“No way!” he emphatically responded. He then tried to avoid becoming the subject of Kanye West’s next rant by adding, “No disrespect, Kanye and Kim, but that thing right there is something special.”
Unfortunately for Diddy, that comment will probably push Kanye’s unnecessary outrage button, so he better get ready to hear a lengthy diatribe about just how wrong he is. Yeezus will probably claim that Kim Kardashian’s derriere is hotter than Helen of Troy’s face or a finer work of art than the Venus de Milo.
Kanye hasn’t responded to Diddy’s comments yet, but Jennifer Lopez did have something to say about them. Access Hollywood showed Diddy’s flattering comments to J.Lo so that she could issue a response to his praise. She would only say “Thank you” to Diddy when asked specifically about the comparison to Kim Kardashian, but she couldn’t help gushing about her former lover after seeing him get all worked up over her “Booty” video.
“We spent three years of our lives together, you know almost every single day… as much as he roots for me and as proud as he is of me and of the time we had together, I am just as proud to see what he’s done… He gave me so many cues and taught me so many things. always be grateful to him for that and I love that he can be so supportive of me so many years later and that there’s still so much mutual respect, admiration and love there.”
It might sound like these two should try hooking up again, but Diddy made it very clear that they work better as friends.
Do you agree with Diddy that Kim Kardashian’s famous booty is still being overshadowed by Jennifer Lopez’s backside? Maybe Access Hollywood should ask Sir-Mix-a-Lot about his nasty thoughts on the matter. However, he might be partial toward “Anaconda” singer Nicki Minaj.
