Butt selfie-belfie: the new trend

Jennifer Lopez’s butt selfies make butt implants more marketable than ever. Is the butt the new breast?

When nude photos from over 100 celebrities, including Jennifer Lawrence, Rihanna and Kate Upton, were stolen and subsequently published online by a hacker, it became widely known that these stars love their back side.
Even a term was coined, dedicated to the favorite erogenous zone of America: "Belfie", which combines the words “butt” and “selfie”.

Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea’s new song, which is actually a tribute to this favorite body part, is accompanied by a music video with prolonged views on her impressive backside. Well, no surprise…

Few were those who did not feel some envy towards Pippa Middleton’s behind or Beyonce’s tiny body pointing up her buttocks, during her summer tour in the USA. Many fashionistas already wear a special corset under their dress to make their behind look bigger and show up their waist; and most of them worship it.

Breast and legs are still popular beauty parts on the body, yet the backside is on the rise – literally!

The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic surgery (A.S.A.P.S) says that more than 11,000 butt enlargement and lift surgeries have been performed, i.e. double the number of those done in 2010.
Even the cover of “Sports Illustrated”, the best seller swimsuit issue, had three top models showing their backside on camera.

Celebrity Belfies are common now because celebrities are proud of their buttocks.

Reality-show princess, Kim Kardashian, bases her career on her buttocks while Nicki Minaj’s latest single “Anaconda”, where her buttocks were barely covered, was viewed 19.6 million times within the first 24 hours of release.

In addition, Jennifer Lopez’s buttocks were characterized by Vanity Fair as ‘in and of themselves, a cultural icon’ as they impress people for over a decade now, but this year everything shows that they impress more.
