I never thought I’d say this, but: I’ve had enough of the butts. It all started with this:
And now everybody’s doing it. (Though hardly anyone can with the same finesse as Lady and her posse of, well, ladies.)
A recent development has been Major Lazer’s booty anthem “Bubble Butt” (below), which makes me question which butts are real and which ones are just CGI. I don’t know about you, but I prefer not to have an existential crisis with my music videos.
