Social media wasn’t feeling
‘s reference to Blake Lively ‘s “Baby Got Back” on Tuesday. Sir Mix-A-Lot
pregnant actress posted a photo of her Versace-draped backside at the Cannes Film Festival, captioned “L.A. face with an Oakland booty.” While Instagram users found the reference questionable (and, according to some, racially insensitive), Sir Mix-A-Lot showed his support for the Gossip Girl.
interview, he said: New York Daily News “I don’t think she’d wear that dress if she thought that booty is horrible — and to me, it ain’t horrible.”
“I don’t get it at all,” he continued. “She’s saying she’s proud of her butt. I’m glad she embraced the look, because that’s what I wanted (with the song). All I would say to the critics is let’s better understand the context of what she said. If [what she’s] saying is, ‘I have this butt that Mix-A-Lot was talking about in ‘Baby Got Back,’’ that’s a good thing. She’s saying I’ve embraced this ideal of beautiful. However, if what she’s saying is, ‘I cannot believe I got this fat, this is horrible,’ then I agree with the critics.”
Blake has yet to respond to the backlash, but Sir Mix-A-Lot feels positively about that.
“I’m glad she didn’t pull it down,” he added. “I don’t think she should.”
The 28-year-old is currently expecting her
second child with husband Ryan Reynolds.
