Blake Lively thinks she has an ‘LA face and an Oakland booty’: really?!

L.A. face with an Oakland booty

A photo posted by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on

Blake Lively posted this Instagram yesterday, declaring that she has an “L.A. face with an Oakland booty.” This is a line from the much-beloved Sir Mix-a-Lot song, “Baby Got Back,” which is funny because I always thought that Blake was a total Becky.

This whole thing led me down a weird rabbit hole – Jezebel questioned whether Blake was being “passively racist” with this IG. Without the context of “Baby Got Back,” I think “LA face with an Oakland booty” is problematic. But my issue is more like… her butt doesn’t even look that big? She’s pregnant, so she’s a bit fuller and curvier everywhere, but are we even comfortable calling this an “Oakland booty”??? Maybe my perception has been warped by staring into too many Pinocchio Butts though.

I agree with her about the LA face though. She definitely has an LA Face. And Barbie style. And an “Allure of Antebellum” soul.

    1) what does that even mean? I get that it was in the song, but what does it mean in the song?
    2) when did she get this delusional?

    • Goldie says:

      She’s almost become a caricature at this point. I used to think she seemed normal.

      • Lolad says:

        Leave it to a true-blue Becky to quote the becky-ist rap song in existence! That song is lame.

    • OrigialTessa says:

      Basically, white in the front, black in the back. And if she had posted those exact words instead of a lyric, yeah, it’s pretty racist, Blake.

      • Naya says:

        And by white she means “glamorous beauty” or as some here declared her …”goddess”

        And by black she means big ass. (Except she is confusing wide flabby ass held up by constructed underwear for the average black butt which tends to be naturally apple shaped even on a tiny frame like Lupitas or Kerry Washingtons)

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        Let’s also not forget that when she says LA in the front she’s nkt of course referring to the real LA which has a high population of Latinos, NOPE, she’s talking about glamorous Hollywood who nipped and snipped her face into being a star.

      • V4Real says:

        More like a butterface with an LA booty.

        And yeah LA Face with an Oakland booty pretty much means a pretty face with a big or Black girl’s ass.

        Or some people say the face of a Hollywood actress with the but of a girl in a rap video.

      • HH says:

        Yes. The nice trend of being white and black in the “right” places. The trend of cherry picking which parts of blackness people now want/celebrate. And there’s a gazillion extra points if it’s not attached to a black body.

      • Esmom says:

        Naya, lol.

        And even thought it’s a lyric, I still find it racist, in a pandering sort of way. Same tone deafness as her antebellum crap.

        HH, ugh.

      • WTW says:

        Well, I’m just going to rep my city and say white is definitely not the LA face (even if the song implied it). L.A. is overwhelmingly Latino, and an L.A. face to me would have mestizo features, closer to the indigenous peoples who inhabited this area years ago. Not trying to sound out of left field, but the Hollywood crowd literally makes up a sliver of L.A. and is mostly concentrated in certain parts of town (primarily the West Side). Most rank-and-file Angelenos don’t even encounter the Hollywood folks. If you spend any time in L.A., the common thread running through all of the city is Latinos. Just writing this because I really think outsiders have no idea what the real L.A. is like.
        Oh yeah and Oakland isn’t really black any more, since many of the black folks have been run out by tech world gentrifiers. The black population in the Bay drops every year.

      • JenniferJustice says:

        It kills me that any of these celebs dare to humble brag about their ‘beauty’ when the fact is they had a ton of sh!t done to have their current face. For example, this is Blake before she got involved with Tinsel Town:
        crooked teeth, potato nose, bags under the eyes, thinner hair.
        Here’s another:
        Big nose, bags under the eyes, severe overbite, and thinner hair. She got her teeth fixed by then.

        So, no Blake. You do not have an LA face unless your definition of LA face is mucho surgery.

      • KiddVicious says:

        I never thought of LA face as meaning white face, just over botoxed and “done”. I’m assuming Sir Mix actually meant Hollywood face but LA probably had an easier flow. And Hollywood face means too much plastic surgery, not white.

      • D says:

        @JenniferJustice , She looks really different, I didn’t know she had that much work done.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        It’s always fascinating to me when people make major transformations through plastic surgery.

        Is it weird not recognizing yourself in the mirror or do you just feel like you did your own ugly ducking to beautiful swan transformation? Girlfriend did a lot to get her L.A. face…so in that sense I guess it is a true L.A. face, curtesy of some plastic surgeon’s office.

      • colleen says:

        @Eternal: I think they DO forget, and I think they forget on purpose. That’s the only explanation I can possibly think of for the constant denials we hear from these Hollywood-types. They seem to completely buy into their own lies… Maybe they’re better actors and actresses than we give them credit for! :)

      • V4Real says:

        “I never thought of LA face as meaning white face, just over botoxed and “done”. I’m assuming Sir Mix actually meant Hollywood face but LA probably had an easier flow.”

        Some interpret it as Hollywood face but Sir Mix-A-Lot could have meant LA face. Let’s not forget this song came out in 1992 before LA became nothing but plastic make-overs. Plastic surgery was popular but it was no where near as popular as it has become over the years. This song is 24 years old.

    • WhatAmIDoingHere? says:

      It means she has a pretty face and an ass like ghetto black woman. LA = hot people. Oakland especially back then ghetto + black people

      • Wren says:

        Yes. This is exactly what it means. I grew up in the bay area and the Chris Rock line about “ohhhhh, Oakland is where San Francisco keeps all the black people!” isn’t all that exaggerated.

        Can’t you just see Blake listening to the song and going “tee hee! omg my butt is, like, totally huge and this song, like, is totally about me!”

      • Esmom says:

        Yup. Horrible.

      • Dingding says:

        Well, perhaps calling her derriere after those places where white poor unsporty people live is more appropriate.
        So she has a (boring, surgically enhanced) LA face and a white trailer traxx booty?
        I am not okay with that. I don’t like to associate “ugly” body parts with ethnic groups or with pariah groups like paupers.
        Can’t she be a bit more elaborate and call her derriere “gorgeous”, “voluptuous”, “well-formed” or simply “my booty is making a statement about femininty”.

    • Thunderthighs says:

      Nobody knows…but it’s provocative. *Smirk*

    • Jade says:

      Khloe kardashian and Katie perry have both used this saying on their Instagram . Not sure why Blake is being singled out here . It’s a song … Not everything is racist !

  2. OriginallyBlue says:

    I saw the headline and said what the f*ck is that supposed to mean? The context helps, but it’s still stupid. She needs to stop saying/typing words.

    • Original T.C. says:


      Seems like she herself doesn’t understand the song: Gorgeous face with a nice round and tight booty. IMO she lacks both. Her plastic surgery made her face pretty but the groove lines make her older than her age and exhausted looking.

      Her booty is just wide and flat. The spread is natural from pregnancy and the flat arse her usual. I feel second-hand embarrassment for her.

      • pinetree13 says:

        Aw that’s a little overly mean, there’s nothing wrong with her natural butt. Lots of women have that butt type.


        I think it’s pretty crass to make a post essentially bragging about how “goodlooking you are”. Geez, get some humility. Just one more facet to her more and more horrible seeming personality.

        On a happier note, can’t believe anyone would wear my go-to work look (aka ponytail) with such a fancy dress. I always feel like such a slob when i just do a pony-tail….good to know some strangely consider it red carpet worthy! LOL

    • Denisemich says:

      Bless her Southern Baptist heart.

      I don’t think her post was intentionally racist.

      There are a lot of rap songs that sound wrong when referenced by a white person. Is that person racist for repeating it or referencing it Or was the song racist to begin with. Just because a black man sang it doesn’t mean the song wasn’t WRONG on a lot of levels.

    • Intuitive says:

      Exactly! Shut up and stop spouting nonsense!! I never had a particular opinion about her but after this and the woody allen quote, I can’t bear her.

      She has had plastic surgery but I don’t think she looks that great and she isn’t a great actor either. Wasn’t she supposed to be one of ‘Harvey’s girls ‘?! I shall say no more.

  3. qwerty says:

    She’s pretty straight up and down except for implants imo.

  4. Easypeasy123 says:

    Idk her ass looks pretty enormous to me

    • Naya says:

      Its large but not round. If you look carefully at the the back and side pics you can see the underwear sculpting lifting that thing. This is just your average everyday butt not a booty, she needs to have a seat.

    • mme says:

      You mint have seen many asses. Enormous/ Oakland booty would be Serena, Blac Chyna ( yes her ass is 100% real), Draya, Beyoncé, JLo. Rihanna got a bigger ass than Blake even and rihanna’s is not one to be called big in the first place. Her ass is wide probably cos her hips spread due to pregnancy but it’s not even big in anyway.
      so much ado about ass

      • Gabriella says:

        I’m sorry but I don’t believe Blac Chyna’s ass is real.
        I live in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, we practically invented the whole big booty trend (lol). I see naturally big asses in teeny tiny bikinis all the time on the beach and, let me tell you, they do not look like that. Even black girls. Usually, when a butt is that big, it is proportional to the size of the thighs and is a bit flaccid because it’s mostly adipose tissue, muscles can’t grow that big.

      • MCraw says:

        Blac Chyna’s ass is not real at all. It’s obvious and a botched job.

      • qwerty says:

        lmao Chyna’s ass is so obviously fake

      • V4Real says:

        “I live in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro, we practically invented the whole big booty trend”

        I’m sure there are plenty of Black people that will disagree with that. :)

        Even Sir Mix- a- Lot whose song Blake was referencing.

        @mme You can even say her husband’s ex, Scarlett Johansson has a bigger ass compared to Blake.

      • Pepper says:

        Blac Chyna’s ass is not real. It’s not even a good fake ass. Years ago when she was a bit thinner, often you could literally see the implants. Either she got implants on top of the muscle, or she got implants too big to be fully put under/inside the muscle, because when she bent down or took big steps you could see the ridges.

      • Gabriella says:

        It was a joke :) But I said that because Brazilian girls are quite internationally known for their derrieres (hence “Brazilian” butt augmentation), and while American media was still worshipping stick thin women with massive boobs, we were already all about that booty. In spite of that song, the booty phenomenon is quite recent in America.

    • isabelle says:

      Its wide but it isn’t round. She has a flat butt with flat cheeks. Just has wide hips.

  5. HK9 says:

    I thought we agreed she wouldn’t speak anymore.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      She’s like a beauty pagaent contestant who was doing so well in the swimsuit portion and is now butchering it during the question and answer.

      Stay in the swimsuit section Blake, you’re capable of doing that.

    • M.A.F. says:

      She apparently didn’t get the memo.

    • Sunsetsnow says:

      We did! Apparently she doesn’t want to take our free advice to keep her trap shut.

      • Dingding says:

        Girl know what to say to get noticed. Pity she can’t phrase it in a more interesting and less degrading way.

    • skylar says:

      Word. lol Blake should be on timeout.
      First stupidity surrounding defending woody’s antics and now girl oakland booty.
      Honestly i don’t find her comment as offensive as she’s proven to be dense, and becky’s shouldn’t mock themselves. lol
      Stay in your lane Becky.

  6. CidySmiley says:

    1. Her butt is wide, but not round

    2. “L.A. face and an Oakland booty” is basically saying she’s got the face of a rich white woman and the booty of a mexican/ black woman from oakland.

    • Myrna says:

      Yup, I agree – wide butt, not round.
      And, a white face- a given.

      But am I the only one who doesn’t get her appeal?
      She’s pushing it and seems completely delusional if she thinks she has an L.A. Face, unless she means plastic, but I don’t even get that from her.

      L.A. Girls from where I stand have notoriously been known to be blond and gorgeous.
      Blake is not gorgeous.
      She always looks like she just got up from a nap – worn and washed out – IMHO.

      • minx says:

        I don’t get her appeal at all. She helped herself with rhinoplasty and a boob job but is still very average looking, IMO, and a below average actress.

      • Myrna says:

        Good to know I’m not the only one minx!

      • qwerty says:

        She also had her teeth done, and upper eyelids.

      • V4Real says:

        In the words of Michael Jackson:
        “You are not alone”
        “I am here with you”

        I don’t get her appeal at all. She’s one of those not so talented, not so attractive celebrities that Hollywood (media included) tries to sell to the public as beautiful and talented.

      • lisa says:

        lol i will come sit with you all

        very bland face even with all that work. she’s lucky her whole family is in show business. otherwise, she’s be scooping ice cream somewhere.

  7. jeanpierre says:

    The only reason I’m not totally hating her right now is That upcoming shark movie. I’ll bootleg it and be done with her.

  8. Jean Grey says:

    Lmao. No Blake. Just NO. She’s more like bland , Williamsburg Hipster face with a basic booty. Girl, bye.
    SN Racist? Oh please. Far from it She’s just always trying to be down.

    • Jegede says:

      Pretty much.

      I don’t see the racism here either.
      We ALL used to quote and dance to this song like crazy in my Uni days. Verbatim. All races and creeds.

      But I’m not American, so maybe I’m missing something.

    • MCraw says:

      Yeah, I agree. Not racist. Quoting a song? Hell naw, to the naw naw nawww

    • Sophie says:

      Yes, just quoting a song. Don’t see any racism there.

    • Amide says:

      I’m Nigerian and in my multi racial secondary school we all used to bang down to this tune. At a time the line was referenced everyday in every way . Not seeing anything sinister here AT ALL but OK.
      Gotta say the attacks on every facet of Lively’s body & shape up in here is making me like her all the more.

    • Francesca says:

      I think things are going backwards when we make it wrong for people of one color to quote songs written/performed by people of another color. All this appropriation talk just creates dovides and separation. And to what end?

    • Illyra says:

      Agreed. She seems harmless to me, people get offended too damned easily… it’s pathetic.

    • Breakfast Margaritas says:

      African American and I don’t see an issue with her saying this. It’s instantly recognizable as a line from sir mixalot famous song and I’m sure she is amazed at the change in her body from naturally thin to pear shaped and curvy with this second pregnancy. I remember tons of press where she said she doesn’t diet or exercise to maintain her slim figure and loves to cook. Unless she plans on retiring I’d say those days are BEHIND her. She does look curvy in these pics. She looks great. Love the blue dress on her.

  9. Nancy says:

    I never had a high opinion of her to begin with, then she sealed the deal by rallying around WA. Yeah Blake you have a cute little LA nose, ever since you had the majority of cut off to achieve the look. Leave a good old song alone….Sir Mix A lot told me to tell you that..xoxo

  10. mme says:

    Where is the booty tho? I’m tired of this chick. I dunno for others but in the black community, that is like size zero ass. It’s also funny when white people ooh and ahh about Scarlett johansson’s booty or shape generally. Probably cos it’s commonplace where I was raised. And again a white girl gets attention for an average-sized booty. A black woman with that booty size and shape is who? maybe Regina hall or megan good but don’t even think about it cos it’s common here. They’re not universal sex symbols.
    Blake needs to give it a rest. That ain’t no Oakland booty. Isn’t this how we ended up with Kim Kardashian

    • Annie says:

      I think it’s really stupid to be obsessed with asses, of all things, or what community has women with better asses. Like, seriously? You see women with lovely figures in every country, and really busted women too.
      And especially these days when everyone gets stuff done, I wouldn’t trust anyone immediately who claims their body is real, when even the brokest girl gets stuff done. In This industry especially everyone has had work done. Look at everyone’s before and after pics. Nicki Minaj’s real body: no ass, no boobs. Rihanna’s old nose, Kim’s entire face and body. Blake’s old face. Arguing who has a better body, who has a nicer butt, who’s real, joke’s on us. These women got a ton of help. Women of color included. Everyone is getting that stupid Brazilian butt lift. A woman with real beautiful attributes is rare. They exist but it’s not like everyone looks like that.

      • mme says:

        Maybe it got lost on you but lemme clarify. This is exactly how we ended up with Kim Kardashian, a white woman who modified herself to look black while still white. Hence the booty augmentation to be seen as desirable because she has black features but is still white. How much longer before Blake starts her own augmentation to look like that because that’s obviously what gets the attention these days. Why is Scarlett a sex symbol in the media, because she has a booty/curves while still white. I went ahead to state black women who look just like her but got the short end of the stick because they’re not white and thereby not noteworthy. It’s not pointless to point out that she might start profiting off it especially since the black community she referenced by using that song is still mocked for the exact same thing

      • qwerty says:

        Rihannas still has her nose though?

      • M.A.F. says:

        Didn’t realize Armenian’s were white.

        If anything, Kim Kardashian went the other way, she tried to get rid of her Armenia features to make herself look more white.

      • Kitten says:

        I agree with Annie but nme is also right.
        People act like white women like Jolie invented large lips and Kim invented the large booty.

      • Cee says:

        @mme – I am a white woman and I still have a “booty”. I inherited it from my mum’s side of the family, unfortunately. Even if some men and ethnicities find they love my “booty”, I effing hate it.

        And no, I did not buy it from a surgeon nor do I have anything but white AF ancestors cursing me with their lack of melanin.

      • V4Real says:

        I can’t speak on if Rihanna had a nose job but Beyoncé would have been a good example since she had a nose job and breast implants.

        @Cee Darn girl, tell me how you really feel about your ancestors. LOL

        But I don’t think @mme is saying that all White women don’t have large asses. I used to tease some of the Russian and Czech girls I used to hang out with. I was like damn, what are they putting in the milk in your country because these girls came with naturally round tight booties, some the size of Jessica Biel, another White girl with a real, not fake, ass.
        One of my closest friends who is White, has a big ass and it’s real. And this has nothing to do with race, just preference, I would take a White girl with an ass like Jessica Biel’s ass everyday of the week and on Sunday too.

      • Starkiller says:

        MAF–you must either be trolling or American. Of course Armenians are white, what else would they be?

      • Wren says:

        I, a white woman, have been told (much to my embarrassment) on multiple occasions by several different men of different races that I have a “ghetto booty”. Leaving aside the issue of unwanted comments on my figure, it was very strange that this certain feature of mine seemed to be so celebrated, especially by black men, simply because I was white. It made me very uncomfortable.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Armenians are white.

        Are these things ( big lips, big booty) considered desirable in white women because they’re not that common? They’re much more common in black women so maybe they’re not considered as noteworthy?
        Are there any features that are rare among black women so they would be considered desirable which are common among white women so they’re not considered a big deal? I’m not that familiar with black beauty standards because there are virtually no black people in my country. Or any people that are not white.

      • delorb says:

        All one has to do is look at the caricatures and cartoons of black people from back in the day. Our lips and body types (thighs, butts) were exaggerated and not because they thought it something to emulate. But as it usually happens, whenever someone white does it, they’ve discovered it or started the trend. Bo Derek and her braids. Paula Abdul teaching Janet Jackson how to dance (that lie was particularly egregious). Hell, even twerking is over 20 years old. But it doesn’t become a thing until white people do it.

    • MP says:

      YES, i was wondering the same, isnt K.Kardashian armenian???? are they also considered “white”? She and her other sister (kourtney?) look more like latinas than white girls, honest question btw.

      • Lynnie says:

        I read somewhere that Rob Kardashian Sr. was 3rd generation Armenian and Kris is as white as they come so

      • Cee says:

        Do you mean Mexicans and Puerto Ricans? Because nobody in my country looks like the Kardashians unless they are part or full Armenian.

        People seem to forget Kris Jenner is not armenian, but german and scot (or something like that), making her Kardashian children only half-Armenian. That’s why Khloe looks different.

      • mme says:

        Oh Kitten, no one understands me like you do. I know I’m reaching a little but yes that’s a thing. Kim is credited for making young girls feel more confident in their curvier bodies whole someone like Beyoncé who actually had a song called BOOTYLICIOUS is booted to the corner and that’s a woman that’s been proud of said curves longer than Kim has been relevant and since Kim was still known as Kimberly. And this is not even Kim’s real body, her surgeon gave her this. And there was a time Beyoncé was accused if copying Kylie Jenner’s lip thing. I was furious. Here was a 34 year old black woman accused of plumping her lips and ut bring Kylie’s influence years after she was accused of reducing them to look whiter. Don’t get me started on the Jolie lips thing too.
        That’s essentially why it bothers me because Blake might soon start profiting off this like Kim

      • Locke Lamora says:

        Armenians are white.

      • WTW says:

        @MP, Armenia is in Europe, so Armenians are white. I guess they might be termed “white ethnics” because they look different from Western Europeans. Some Armenians I’ve known haven’t felt comfortable describing themselves as white, instead choosing “other.” Others I’ve known have been quite adamant that they’re white. I lived in Glendale, Calif., for years, and it has one of the largest, if not the largest, Armenian populations in the county. Armenians are distinct looking, meaning you can often tell that someone is Armenian by looking at them and certainly if they have an Armenian name. In L.A., I do think they face prejudice, so they’re in a weird category–racially white but ethnically distinct looking and subject to discrimination.

      • Fiorella says:

        You can look up race on wiki , it was invented I don’t know 2-400 years ago by some pseudo scientist to classify the way humans look. It also helped justify (not really obviously) slavery because “negroids” we’re said by the “scientists” to be less intelligent. It’s not really science or anything meaningful- but if you are interested yes Armenians are in the same group as the typical white people. I think Indian and Arab people are as well. “Caucasoid”? I’m not looking it up but you can:)

    • Fiorella says:

      Mme Blake is too proud / honourable to get ridiculous work done. She would get the kind of things done that gwyneth and Beyoncé have, in that vein. Remember , she had her wedding in Martha Stewart’s magazine and didn’t even show a pic of her in her dress. She is nothing like Kim.
      Also, if you follow her Instagram she jokes around. She is just making a joke about this one pic where her prego butt looks big. And she probably knows that LA face refers to plastic at least as much as it does pretty.

  11. SloaneY says:

    She’s one of the few people I’ve ever seen that looks better in profile than she does head on.

  12. Patricia says:

    Stop. Talking.


  13. Mia4s says:

    Of course she brings up her curves (breaking news: pregnant woman gains weight!). What else is she going to talk about? Her extraordinary acting work? Her lifestyle brand (oops). All she has to generate interest is her looks.

    Are we allowed to point out that most of that is plastic surgery or are we supposed to pretend we didn’t notice? Not saying her doctors don’t deserve kudos but…🙄

  14. Jill B says:

    In the picture she posted, she does have a big booty. She didn’t write that caption on the other pictures, so pointing out her flat butt in those makes no sense.

    • seriously says:

      Exactly!! Blake was commenting on the one specific picture of her butt – and how the photo made it appear big. She wasn’t saying she thinks her butt is big and beautiful all the time…just in that one picture.

      • Fiorella says:

        Some sense! Someone gets the context! Thank you :-) the photo makes her butt look way bigger than it is. Funny. End of story

  15. Talie says:

    If LA face means sculpted by a plastic surgeon then…

  16. Arya. says:


  17. Jegede says:

    Oh Geez. Really?

    A Sir Mix a lot song that has been referenced from zone A to Z is now a thing to bash at her?.

    Lively’s probably happy that a pregnancy bod has given her something of a booty (though not really)

    I do love the comments under this Jezebel article.

    • Fran says:

      Thanks for this, I don’t see this huge problem here.

      Yeah if it wasn’t a lyric it would be problematic, but in this context it’s just a lighthearted joke. It doesn’t matter if her booty is “wide not round” or if some people don’t think it’s big at all, I give her props for wearing something form that fitting while she’s pregnant. She probably thought she’d head off any criticism about her body with a joke before it happened.

      Incidentally, I’m no Blake apologist. I think she’s super boring.

    • V4Real says:

      “A Sir Mix a lot song that has been referenced from zone A to Z is now a thing to bash at her?.”

      Yeah it kind of is. I don’t think she has an LA face, I think she has a butterface. That’s my opinion. And I don’t think she has a big ass, maybe a wide one now that she is pregnant. But I’m glad she thinks so highly of herself to think she is beautiful.

      Don’t we bash the recipient of People’s Most Beautiful woman on here a lot? Of course some people are going to bash a woman who is claiming to be beautiful and have a big ass when she doesn’t.

      Though I don’t think it’s racist for her to use those lyrics like some are saying. Hoda performed that song on Lip Sync Battle does that make her racist for singing it? Remember it was even popular on an episodes of “Friends” when Ross and Rachel performed it for their baby to get her to stop crying. Oh, Gawd, why do I know that?

    Well, she does have a big butt for a white girl now. After seeing the likes of Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Kardashians et al. for so long we don’t even know what a naturally full butt looks like anymore.

    • Halah says:

      You’re so right! So many of these women have had a BBL like you mentioned before, it’s like we’ve forgotten what a real big butt can look like. BBL surgery is so common in the states too, just go on real self .com and be prepared for the rabbit hole of before/afters!

      • Andrea says:

        Just went on Rabbit hole…no kidding. Geez…I’m shocked with all the procedures available. I’m not sure if I’m in awe or frightened. But the before and afters are impressive.

      • Kitten says:

        BBLs are kind of amazing right? It’s just incredible to me that is a person has enough money, they can completely change the entire shape of their body.

    • Annie says:

      For a real nice butt you can look at dancers and athletes. Those butts are real, toned, proportionate, tight, earned. Everything else is so plastic and cartoonish these days. If I look for body inspiration I look for it in active women. Dancers, fit girls, volleyball players, etc. It’s natural, real, normal, reasonable everything they have. That’s why JLo’s butt is one of the last, great, real ones. Her Latina genes but also, her dancer background.

      I’m SO ready for this plastic beauty trend to be over. People used to get only nose jobs, now it’s EVERYTHING. Chins, boobs, cheek bones, lypo, butt lifts, lips, brow lifts, hairlines…

      • pinetree13 says:

        I agree Annie its extremely sad. I keep pointing this out on other posts too but now women are expected to get EVERYTHING “fixed”. Your hair isn’t long/full enough, your nose is too big, your eyebrows aren’t arched/perfect enough, your lips aren’t full enough, your breasts are too small, your waist is too big, your butt isn’t round enough, your hips aren’t shapely enough, your legs aren’t long enough, your feet are too big, your skin is either too light or too dark, your nails need to be long and painted, your hair isn’t voluminous enough,

        I could go on and on. People are applauding the new “curvy” beauty ideal. All I see is yet another female form being objectified and held above all others. A perfect hour glass shape is no easier to obtain than a super-skinny one for most of us.

  19. paolanqar says:

    I think geographically she belong to Vanil-Land and her face and booty belong respectively to Delusion-Ville ang Get-Over-Yourself-Town.

  20. BRE says:

    I’m thinking Ryan is the one that told her this. She is probably too young to even know that song.

    • tealily says:

      Ha! You’re probably right. It seems like Ryan Reynolds humor for sure.

    • V4Real says:

      She probably watched that Charlie Angel’s scene with Cameron Diaz and Googled the song.

    • MellyMel says:

      Blake was born in 1987, same as me & I know every word to that song lol. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t know the lyrics to it honestly.

  21. Annie says:

    What is people’s obsession with giant asses these days?? Newsflash: if it’s fake it looks awful. If it’s unhealthy it looks awful. If it’s disproportionate to your body it looks awful. Now suddenly everyone needs to have a huge ass. Take a seat, that’s not a noteworthy butt.

    Also, that comment was so out of line. She might as well have said “Rich white face, ghetto ass.” We’ve always known she’s lowkey racist. That was so unnecessary. All kinds of women can have nice butts. Have you not seen white volleyball players, white runners? They have amazing butts too. That whole “Oakland” thing and fetishizing the features of women of color is one messed up thing about this plastic generation. Fake beauty everywhere. If it’s not natural and shapely it looks stupid.

    • Gaby says:

      I’m loving your comments!

    • Lex says:

      What’s an unhealthy fat arse?
      Science says holding weight around the hips and thighs is fine – it’s around the waist and upper stomach that is the risk area.

  22. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    LA face, Oakland booty, Mattel brain.

    L.A. Face (surgically altered to achieve some manufactured idea of beautiful)
    ‘Oakland Booty’ girl please. Wide and flat does not equal round. You tried.
    Brain by Mattel. Printed in a store and capable of only destroying any chances of being intellectually respected.

  23. Naya says:

    She must be the female Trump in that she could burn a cross in her backyard and still have defenders. I cant imagine somebody like JLaw or even Chloe Moretz getting away with as much as this woman has over the years. Luckily she is also extremely stupid, so I can count on her to keep digging holes for herself.

    • Annie says:

      I don’t think she gets away with anything. She’s just not that important. She really isn’t. Besides Gossip Girl, what has she done since. It’s not a career worth following.

      • teacakes says:

        Her main achievements in life are having blond hair and getting dressed. Seriously that’s it.

      • Susan says:

        I agree Annie. I don’t think she gets away with anything per se, she’s just not really that famous ever, especially not now. Other than the occasional celebrity blog, I don’t see much of her. Anywhere. And that shark movie looks direct to video.

    • FingerBinger says:

      I’m not crazy about her but I don’t think she’s racist.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      JLaw could kill a person and people would think it’s cute.

      • Naya says:

        Not around here they wouldnt. That girl cant even sneeze without somebody sneering that she was just trying to seem relatable.

  24. Red32 says:

    Is she on a mission to be as offensive as possible at Cannes this year? Between this and the Woody Allen comments, she’s either trolling or completely clueless.

  25. Brit says:

    All the shade in this post is making me lol

  26. littlemissnaughty says:

    I think people are reaching here. Her Antebellum crap and WA bullsh*t was offensive, yes. We’ve been over this. She’s a cupcake obsessed rich girl who’s coasted through life on her Barbie looks and chooses to live in a Louboutin bubble.

    As for the quote, my god. It’s a famous song. I’m usually not one to use this argument because it’s usually pretty unfair but there are people starving in the world. THIS is not worth our outrage.

    • Jegede says:

      IKR? Open season I guess.

      But my girls – Kitten, Mimz, Bebe e.t.c have abandoned post (or site?) so I’m carrying the flag solo now lol.

      And funny enough this was the same kind of debate in yesterday’s JLaw post.

      They’ll both be fine anyway so can’t sweat it.

      • Amide says:

        I agree this is reaching 101. But most of the comment in the links actually defend Lively so whatevs.

        Hey you forgot me! How could you boo? But y’know the attacks on her face, figure, head, teeth, thumbs e.t.c in this post all out just makes me root for her even more.
        Hope The Shallows is good.

      • Jegede says:

        @Amide –

        LOL. I did say e.t.c doll.

        So no, didn’t mean to leave you out!

    • Kitten says:

      I think it’s just the natural climate of celeb gossip and we all do it with celebs we don’t like.

      For instance, I’m always waiting for Chris Pratt to do something dumb so I can rail because I’m the only person here who can’t stand the dude.

      LOTS of people hate Lively so the past few weeks have been like Christmas for them. That’s not shade BTW–just the way it works around here.

      But I do think the body criticisms are unnecessary. I get that she’s the one that brought up her butt, but the woman is pregnant FFS.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I don’t hate her, but I think she has been justifiably criticized for some of her comments of late. I don’t understand why people think she’s being picked on. This comment, I don’t get because I don’t know the song or the geography/ demographics of LA so I have no idea what she’s talking about and couldn’t care less about the size of her butt. But she needs to disappear for awhile.

      • FingerBinger says:

        @Kitten I don’t like Chris Pratt either. I don’t believe his I’m a regular guy act.

      • Kitten says:

        @GNAT-Oh I agree that the criticism as of late is 100% warranted. Apologies if my comment seemed to indicate otherwise. No excuses for her idiotic comments about WA. None.

        @FingerBinger-YES. It’s an act and it annoys me to no end that people buy into it.

      • teacakes says:

        Kitten, I’m no fan of Chris Pratt either, he’s my least favourite of the Marvel Chrises. I don’t know whether it’s the smarm or the hunting that puts me off, but something certainly does.

      • lisa says:

        i think chris pratt is a ragy, violent trump voter

      • delorb says:

        If the celebrity brings it up, then it becomes harder to defend them. Its not like someone railing against an actress or singer who just wore the wrong outfit. She started the ass talk, not the people here.

    • Div says:

      ITA LittleMissNaughty. Imo it is slightly offensive but I doubt she even gets the context-she probably just thinks it is a lyric. I’m old enough to remember when this song was quoted constantly tho. The Antevellum stuff was bad, this is just clueless

    • tracking says:

      Yeah, I agree. Taken in context with the unbelievably stupid, offensive antebellum stuff, I understand why people are annoyed. But on its own? She’s quoting a lyric and poking fun at her increasing size. Nbd.

  27. Miss Jupitero says:

    Wide unattractive butt, but otherwise flat.

    Honestly she looks like anyone looks when pregnant. I truly don’t know what she is talking about.

    And yeah, is she on some sort of mission to offend everyone?

  28. Darkladi says:

    I can’t hate on her. She’s so shallow & empty that I’ve got nothing to work with.

  29. Kate says:

    Ugh. Go. Away! Yes she’s got an LA Face…in that she’s passably somewhat attractive because of all of her extensive plastic surgery but no, just no. She’s so incredibly ridiculous and irrelevant that saying dumb sh-t at Cannes is the only way anyone will care about her…for the next five minutes anyway

  30. Tara says:

    She needs to get over herself. I knew she was going to show up to Cannes just posing like it’s all about her fashion show.

  31. Josefina says:

    Her PR team must adore her.

  32. LilyT says:

    Hahahaha! Um. No girl. No.

    You cute tho.

  33. Tiffany27 says:


  34. eeeeetrainnnn says:

    She’s got that LA face covered, bought and paid for. She’s a natural 4. I’m guessing the joke was appropriated from elsewhere, likely her husband. Of all her modest talents, humor is not one of them.

  35. Jezza says:

    Bitch, have a seat on that flat ass of yours.

  36. Lucky says:

    Why oh why is Deadpool married to this twit?
    She kills any sort of affection I might have for him,he becomes unattractive by association.

    • WTW says:

      @Lucky I was thinking the same thing about RR. Thought it was really cool when he dated Alanis Morissette, that it showed he wasn’t just interested in vapid, conventionally beautiful Hollywood types. Then he got with ScarJo and Blake, and I thought otherwise.

  37. Tiffany says:

    So she is picking and closing what aspects of black culture that she wants.


  38. NeoCleo says:

    Absolutely vanilla and boring. She does have an amazing body and she makes a beautiful pregnant woman.

  39. Naddie says:

    If her rear is always like in the pictures and people are saying it’s flat, I can only hope no one here ever sees mine.
    Regards to her comment, it’s the usual typical low key racists we hear everyday. I’m glad she’s being ripped off here. What an idiot.

    • Tiffany says:

      And I cannot believe her and America Ferrera are still tight. As someone who adores America and what she does for the community, I am starting to question that.

  40. Alyce says:

    It is an incredibly stupid thing to say. And I generally like her.

  41. L says:

    She’s pregnant! Your butt gets bigger when you’re pregnant!

  42. Saks says:

    The thing is, that booty is nothing to write home about… But I’m Mexican so I’m used to see big and/or rounded bootys.

    I really don’t like when everyone is called curvy, like the Hadid sisters (?!). All of the Hollywood “curvy” girls, would be considered flat out skinny here.

  43. elns says:

    Damn Celebitchy has me wanting to drop my 2cents everywhere today. Here we go. I’m not looking to Blake Lively WIFE of Justin Timetohate for any kind of racial understanding OR body awareness. Nope. So we should just all move along, ha!

  44. Jill says:

    Why the long face? And in this case, why the long ass too?

  45. LOL says:

    LA face: fake face. Oakland booty: real booty.
    This woman is so obsessed with herself.

  46. Laranaa says:

    Can we stop covering Blake and start covering Leighton Meester — She is far more talented and interesting!

    • Snowflake says:

      What’s wrong with it? Is she supposed to say it on a KK thread? Appropriate place imo

  47. hogtowngooner says:

    She’s a moron. She looks stunning in the blue dress though.

  48. Delta Juliet says:

    I’m going to completely avoid the controversy here and go on record as saying that shade of blue is absolutely gorgeous!

  49. anonymous says:

    I hope she keeps up with all these quotes. She has actually become quite entertaining…in all the wrong ways, of course:)

  50. haley1020 says:

    can she go away i was loving the break from her after gg ended

  51. haley1020 says:

    can she be like jessica alba and just quit acting period

  52. Lambda says:

    I could very well be a minority of one, but I’m quite puzzled by this racial discussion of asses. Like, really? Is it that important? And Blake, daring, regardless of the geography of your ass, silence is golden. You need lots and lots of silence.

  53. Neners says:

    I don’t feel like being the PC Police because, frankly, I don’t have the energy. But I will say this: the lyric itself was always problematic.

  54. Marianne says:

    I honestly don’t think its that bad. I mean, she’s quoting a silly song lyric cause she’s proud of her pregnancy curves.

  55. Persephone says:

    Why would you say that? There is racial connotations there. She knows what she’s saying and fully intended to say it; pregnancy has given her a ‘big, black ass’. I don’t believe it’s intended to be racist but not sure how a black woman may feel about that.

    Her face is definitely Hollywood with all the plastic surgery, she’s had at least two nose jobs.

  56. Jezz says:

    I am sick to death of this twit. You know, I really used to like her husband- I thought he was perfect as Hannibal King in that Blade movie. I have liked him in just about everything, including (of course) Deadpool. But the more his wife yammers, the less I like him for being married to that.

    That’s pretty bad.

  57. kri says:

    Jesus Christ. SHUT UP. You know I used to say “dumb, pretty, small talent”. Now all of those are way too kind. No more of her inanity.

  58. Mango says:

    I agree it’s racist and stupid. She’s really not very witty or intelligent. Stick to picking outfits and get someone to vet your social media, Blake!

  59. Jo says:


    Yes, this girl says/writes some stupid shit but do you really think it’s coming from a bad place?

    She’s either super self conscious about her growing bum and trying to make light of it before someone else makes the gag or, as I suspect, she is loving pregnancy and super self aware so enjoying the curves.

    You can’t blame her for using a pop culture reference. If it’s rascist, it was rascist when is was written more so than when she referenced it. Mum, she may be, but she’s also still in her 20s. Give Blake a break!

    • Mango says:

      I agree with your assessment about where it’s coming from (she’s trying to joke about her changing body) but her comment shows insensitivity and racist connotations. There’s that book Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates that talks about how the black man’s body is kind of a object. Blake’s comment shows her unawareness of that. As a white woman, she shouldn’t be “taking possession” of the concept of black women’s bodies. If you’re putting it out there, we’re all living with it and she’s responsible for it. Whether she intended to be racist or not doesn’t really matter.

  60. Donna Martin says:

    To me Blake is as interesting but not as talented as oatmeal. This was a wicked line though: “She definitely has an LA Face. And Barbie style. And an “Allure of Antebellum” soul.’ lol so good.

  61. isabelle says:

    She really doesn’t even have an LA face or an “oakland” butt. She has a basic becky look. Her real asset is her boobs and its why they are usually on display. Other than the boobs, she is basic Hollywood.

  62. Twinkle says:

    She’s such an annoying idiot. Can she please go away?

  63. Veronica says:

    Hmmm…I think the racial implications of this are more problematic in light of the fact that traditional black beauty is still held as an inferior standard of beauty to that of Caucasian women. Whites can enjoy utilizing the culture to celebrate their own beauty but don’t have to deal with the real life prejudice that comes with being black. So…I have mixed feelings about it, yeah? It’s innocent, but in an unintentionally privileged way.

  64. Much ado about nothing.

  65. Prince Valiant says:

    So, a big fat arse is a reflection of African-American culture. In my view, it is more a reflection of an excessive consumption of Big Macs. and it is certainly not a reflection of African culture or DNA. I have spent extended periods in Africa and, trust my word, the women I saw had normal, round arses but normal. West African women in particular are very tall, slender, regal. In one word magnificent. Built for speed, like an expensive sports car. If I had Kim Kardashian’s backside I would throw myself under a bus. What about Naomi? She might be unbearable but, my god, what a body! And her arse is not hypertrophic. You guys are aware that BL cited the lyrics of an old rap, aren’t you? Racial implications … (eye roll). She intended to pay a compliment. She definitely cannot win.

  66. Redd says:

    Goldie, she became INSANE when she let Revlon put that she is CHEROKEE in her ads for their cosmetices (Revlon was doing that shit with Byonce too until our group questioned it) These girls and their desperation for an identity *rolling my eyes*
