Kim Kardashian West has the internet shaking after revealing her bare buttocks for the winter 2014 cover of Paper Magazine. In the Image, a naked Kim K shows off her ASSet while being covered in oil — the caption reads: “Break the Internet.”
"And they say I didn't have a talent…try balancing a champagne glass on your ass LOL #BreakTheInternet," Kim tweeted about the second cover, which sees her in a black beaded evening gown recreating photographer Jean-Paul Goude's famous "Champagne Incident" portrait, in which a naked model, posing from the side, balances a glass on her butt and sends a stream of champagne flying over her head and into the glass from the uncorked bottle in her hands.
The female body has always been viewed as an object of beauty, and in the last decade, women have been taking full advantage of their voluptuous figures to gain commercial success. Media outlets, like fashion magazines and television, used to control what beautiful should look like, but with the power of social media today, people are slowly changing this uniformed way of thinking. For many years, thin women have been considered beautiful, but with Hip Hop culture taking root in the media, we are diversifying what beauty really is. In this case, we are showing our appreciation for the beauty of the big butt aka booty, badonkadonk, wagon…whatever you want to call it!
Trailing Kim Kardashian, here are seven women whom also have amazing “assets”. Remember, we are celebrating the beauty of this feature of the body and are not objectifying the person’s value based on a body part. It just so happens to be the focus to show what was once viewed as unattractive in mainstream media is now celebrated.
Join us in celebrating the voluptuous women!

She has an attitude and buns of steel. She knows she looks good and doesn’t take no sh*t from anyone, not even "Stebie."
Tracee Ellis Ross
Tracee Ellis Ross has curves for days for those that did not know. The beautiful and funny actress does a great job hiding her amazing body, but once in a while she lets the booty out for air.

Kandi may be the silent killer out of the group, but trust us when we say she's working with badonkadonk. Her booty, which she rarely shows off, gets overshadowed by all her career accomplishments from TV to Music to her entrepreneurial endeavors.
Tahiry has modeled and started a career as a singer. She is now stepping out of the shadow of Joe Budden. However, there is something that always seems to get in the way of everything and that is her voluptuous Dominican backside, which has been wonderfully crafted by nature.
“I think that everyone can get a big booty nowadays… it’s unfair,” Tahiry told Singersroom. “I am all the way natural. I feel like b*tches need to stop cheating sometimes. I loved my body since I realized my body was too thick for a tutu.”
“My anaconda don't / My anaconda don't / My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hun.”
Nicki Minaj is not only a talented emcee, she also has the beauty to go with it. The Young Money rapper has a wonderland figure and it all starts with her booty. She takes pride in her ASSet and she has been passing that energy on to other voluptuous women, especially via her “Anaconda" song and video.
"I went overboard with the video to show that I'm not going to hide. And those big-booty dancers I have, they're not going to hide. Black girls should feel sexy, powerful and important too."
We ain’t mad at you Nicki!
We all know K. Michelle has talent as an entertainer, but it’s physically hard to not think about her junk in the trunk. K’s buttocks was engineered just right for her petite figure — She admits to getting a butt lift, but swears she doesn't get injections.
