Damn, Dame.

Dame Helen Mirren seems to think that women like Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian are who have made it more acceptable to have big butts and thighs.



In an interview with The Telegraph, Mirren praised the Kardashians and J. Lo for their ample assets and for helping women embrace their God-given and store-bought derrieres.

“I’m not into the Kardashians, it’s a phenomenon I just don’t find interesting, but—and this is the big word: B-U-T-T—it’s wonderful that you’re allowed to have a butt nowadays,” she said. “Thanks to Madame Kardashian, and before her, J.Lo. We’re also allowed to have thighs now, which is great, too. It’s very positive.”

Maybe someone should inform Mirren that before J.Lo, and definitely before any Kardashian discovered butt injections, there were plenty of black women proudly shaking what their mama gave them. But it’d probably be too much to ask to have a white woman credit a black woman for anything.
