The question ‘Does my bum look big in this?’ used to set fear into the heart of many women, but in today’s society a bigger bottom is celebrated – thanks to the rise in a rounder derriere amongst the A-list.
From Kim Kardashian’s beautiful booty to Amber Rose’s rounder rump – they’re all at it, and you don’t need to be a former lover of Kanye West to jump on the band wagon.
But the celebrity with the biggest bottom of them all is The Other Woman star Nicki Minaj, 31, with a whopping 19 inch difference between her reported 45 inch hips and her waist - a minuscule 26 inches.
Speaking about her famous behind on MTV back in 2011, the star said: ‘I don’t mind the questions, I don’t mind the fascination. It’s all good.'
She added: 'I mean…but I’ve said this before, it doesn’t define me. So, I try my best not to focus my energy on it.
‘You know, people are sitting in the barbershop talking about my butt, it’s conversational. That’s what people are gonna do.’
But it’s not just Nicki hitting the headlines with her perfectly plump rump; Kim Kardashian’s bottom is the subject of much talk – mainly surrounding if it’s natural or not.
The 33-year-old star, who once had an X-ray on live TV to prove she hadn’t had implants (op: lol), took to Twitter earlier this year to rant about the conversation.
She said: ‘I'm seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose.’
While Kim’s is celebrated by her fiancé Kanye West, whose latest rap with Future called I Won talks about ‘dipping that ass in gold’, Bootylicious singer Beyoncé is so proud of her bottom she sings about it.
The 32-year-old, refers to her behind as ‘fatty’ in her hit single Drunk In Love, and back in 2009 she told MTV she runs up and down the stairs to keep her bottom in shape.
She said: ‘I guess my butt is natural. But I go through stages like every woman. I like being curvy but sometimes I get curvy in the wrong places.
‘After New Year I do stairs - they are the best thing for butt cheeks. Every January I'll start working out. I'll do that for three months and then stop again!’
But it might surprise you to hear neither Beyoncé nor Kim have the second biggest celebrity rear – after Nicki Minaj who holds the title of Queen of the Bottoms.
Rapper Ice T’s wife Coco Austin is reported to have 23 inch hips and 40 inch hips giving her a 17 inch difference.
Also in the top ten was Australian Iggy Azalea with a 14 inch difference and the original Jenny From The Block, Jennifer Lopez, with a reported 13 inch difference.
Iggy, 23, was recently bigged up by her 'baller' boyfriend, Los Angeles Lakers star Nick Young, who proclaimed his love for her bottom as they walked down the street in LA.
The excited 28-year-old said, according to TMZ: 'You see all of this, you see all this? This is what I'm on, man - I'm the star - you see what I'm going into this car with? What I'm gonna do with this a** shouldn't be legal.'
Kim Kardashian’s friend Blac Chyna, who is engaged to rapper Tyga, also has a rather bumptious bottom with a huge 14 inch difference in her reported hip to waist ratio.
Umbrella star Rihanna, 26, is often seen pinching her own rear in music videos, and the curvy singer has a tiny 24 inch waist and rounded 35 inch hips.
And catching up from the rear, Pancake Middleton - Kate's younger sister - shot to worldwide fame after many found themselves admiring her
The 30-year-old has impressive stats, with a super tiny 23 inch waist with 34 inch hips giving her a near-perfect hourglass figure.
Coming in at the bottom of the list, British model and curve-ambassador Kelly Brook, 34, racked up a reported 10 inch difference between her hips and waist – along with Hollywood icon Jessica Biel and Girls Aloud star Kimberley Walsh.
