Blake Lively Still “Proud” of Her Oakland Booty After Backlash
Blake Lively knows she is one baby who’s got back and you can’t change her mind.
The Gossip Girl blonde came under fire last month for captioning a photo of her famous front and back, “L.A. face with an Oakland booty.” Now she’s defending her right to quote Sir Mix-A-Lot.
“It’s something I was proud of,” the 28-year-old told radio host Sway Calloway about her perky booty during a Cannes Film Festival red carpet.
“I never meant to offend anyone,” the pregnant celeb continued. “I was celebrating my body… It’s nice to have a nice curve and not look like you’re starving to death.”
She even gave Sir Mix-A-Lot — whose hit “Baby Got Back” she was cribbing from on the ‘Gram — a shout-out, saying, “He actually said a really nice thing, he was very defensive and kind, because it's just about celebrating women's bodies, and that's what I was doing.”
The rapper, 52, did tell the New York Daily News, “I’m glad she embraced the look, because that’s what I wanted [with the song].”
But Serena Van Der Woodsen’s alter ego isn’t just talking about her butt. She’s also talking about what goes on it — namely a certain pair of traveling pants.
“There is a strong chance there might be a third,” she said of a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants threequel to SiriusXM’s Entertainment Weekly Radio. “The four of us are still best friends and to be able to create something together again has always been a dream of ours.”
But don’t expect any teeny-bopper flavor for the reunion movie.
“We wouldn’t be making a movie for 16-year-olds again,” the actress explained. “We would be making a movie trusting that our audience grew up with us.”
If the eponymous jeans can grow as much as they do, why can’t the fans?
