Once upon a time it was all about Jennifer Lopez’s booty. Then came Kylie Minogue in the gold hot-pants. And who can forget the mass hysteria surrounding Pippa Middleton’s rear at the Royal Wedding last April. But forget about them. Because undeniably the most famous bottom on planet earth right now is that of Kim Kardashian. Why, there’s even a Facebook page dedicated to it, called ‘Kim Kardashian’s gorgeous bottom.’
And in an exclusive interview with Grazia, the 31-year-old reality TV star revealed that she loves her curves and even does special ‘booty’ exercises five days a week to enhance her most famous asset. How refreshing. ‘It’s kind of weird that people are so obsessed with it, but I embrace it,’ she told Grazia. ‘It’s flattering.’
So how does Kim keep that famous rear of hers in such good shape? By working out five days a week for a couple hours a day, that’s how. ‘I do special exercises to keep it in shape. I use weight machines and do a lot of squats and lunges as well as Pilates. You have to know your body type and what bits you want to work on. I always want to do my core and butt.’
Kim even chooses her designer wardrobe around her bottom which was voted the World’s Best Bum by a men’s magazine in February and is estimated to measure 22inches high by 39inches wide. ‘I know how to dress in a way that accentuates the better parts and the bits I need to work on. It’s about knowing how to dress for your body type.’
Such a talking point has Kim’s bottom become, that last year she had a ‘butt x-ray’ in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians to prove that it was all natural following speculation that she’d had implants. At the time she said: ‘Who the hell of a normal person gets butt implants?'
Not that Kim is confident about every part of her body. ‘My least favourite part is my thighs,’ she says. ‘I’ve got a bit of cellulite and everyone needs improvement and I need a whole load of work on them. I get really upset and frustrated when I can’t work out.’
Kim was visiting the UK recently with her rapper boyfriend Kanye West, who she has been dating since April. And she says that she and Kanye are huge fans of London – and the royals. ‘I love it here. I love the fashion, the clothes, the food and Kate Middleton. She has great style.’
Considering the Duchess of Cambridge copy-catted Kimmy K's style for the Jubilee celebrations, we reckon the feeling might be mutal...
