Nicki Minaj’s Butt Exposed - Are Fake Butts The New Fake Boobs?

Pictures have surfaced from Nicki Minaj's recent concert in Dublin, in which the songstress exposes her curvaceous rear end in a barely there, see-through outfit. No issues with her outfits, people can wear whatever the hell they like. No issues with Nicki as performer - she's clearly very talented. In fact we don't take issue with anything about Nicki personally. Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 12.49.09 PM We get fake boobs. Many of the fitness trainers on BodyRock have chosen to have breast augmentation for various reasons, many of which have been openly shared and debated with our community. Not everyone has to agree or even support cosmetic surgery - its a highly personal choice - just as any body modification procedure is. Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 12.43.19 PM   That doesn't mean that there shouldn't be discussions around it. Because like it or not, when a women at the level of Nicki decides to inflate her backside, legions of fan-girls pay attention, and it does have an impact on what the larger culture deems attractive. When the trend goes farther to include multiple Kardashians and other performers and celebrities at that level it starts to have real gravity. People are influenced - like the women in Miami who are going to back alley clinics to have their butt cheeks filled with tire sealant and cement in an attempt to get this look. Don't scoff - it may be idiotic, but it's what happens when surgically enhanced butts reach this level of exposure and glorification in the media. Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 12.46.16 PM We are not here to sit in judgement of anyone. People can change their bodies all they like (hopefully more through diet and exercise than the scalpel - but again, no judgement). If this butt enhancement thing is going to be a thing - which clearly it is, then our hope is that one of these women so many look up to will own it. Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 1.11.54 PM It would just take one person to admit that "yes I had my ass enlarged" to demystify the trend and make it something that people can begin to understand. Because it's not attainable by diet and exercise. It's not natural. You can't squat your way there in the gym and people - especially young women need to understand the difference.
