Sir Mix-A-Lot “Baby Got Back” Inspired By J. Lo
Sir Mix-A-Lot wrote his anthem to the female backside “Baby Got Back” in 1992, but he recently revealed that he wrote the song after seeing Lopez in an episode of In Living Color, on which J. Lo appeared as a Fly Girl. Sir Mix-A-Lot revealed Lopez was his original inspiration for the infamous track in November after Kim Kardashian showed off her butt on the cover of Paper Magazine.
While promoting her new film The Boy Next Door, Lopez was asked about her reaction to Sir Mix-A-Lot’s declaration by Seth Meyers.
“This is very exciting news, in November, Sir Mix-A-Lot–“ Meyers began, causing Lopez to burst into laughter.
“I never thought of Sir-Mix-A-Lot [as being] inspired by a muse,” joked Meyers.
“Okay,” Lopez said with a shrug. “I don’t know. It was flattering, I guess,” added the singer.
Lopez is known for many things, not least among them her killer body and booty. In fact, Lopez is so proud of her backside she released her own song about it, appropriately titled “Booty.”
Still, Lopez said she doesn’t want to compare her figure to the famous booties of 2014, such as Kardashian or Nikki Minaj. “I mean, mine is relatively small when compared to [Kim Kardashian, Nikki Minaj]…Years ago, when I started acting, it was like everybody was a size one or two at the time, so me being a size six was like ‘wow.’… And that was like I had the hugest butt in the world to people. But now, it’s like small potatoes compared to this,” Lopez said on Watch What Happens Live.
