Nicole “Coco” Austin before and after butt implants surgery.
Reality star Coco may have broken this year’s biggest story by claiming Young Money’s Nicki Minaj is not as real as fans may think.
Speaking to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Coco spoke on Minaj’s biggest asset.
“Well, I read that it wasn’t,” Coco said when asked if she thought Minaj’s backside was real. “Yeah, I thought she came out with it. I heard it from her. Yeah. OK, I’ve known — I don’t know. We’re not even going to go there anymore. Scandal? Right? [laughs] And you know, I say about a lot of stylists, that work with me, and a lot of hair and makeup, they work with me. They touch my body, they’re doing stuff all day long. So they’re doing that same thing to Nicki Minaj. And they’re saying it’s a little bit different.” (Perez Hilton)
Earlier this month, Coco shared her opinion on butt implants.
“I’m not against plastic surgery but me going through surgery, I know what it feels like. And I’m kind of against the fact that you should get butt implants because one thing that you’re missing out here, is that when you have boobs, you’re not sitting on you boobs 24-7, when you get butt implants, you’re sitting on your butt for most of the day. You have to think about that. I’m so worried about how I move my boobs here and there. I have to wear a sports bra when I go to the gym. You can’t jiggle all the time, you might jiggle them out of place. Think about that as far as the butt thing goes because they may jiggle out of place and you might not be able to fix it. I hear some really horror stories about the booty thing and I know I might sound hypocritical to do your boobs and not your butt. But, it’s so unnatural. I mean you’re not touching the chest area all that much, you’re not walking all on the chest area all that much. You do a lot with the butt.” (VIBE)
Minaj recently discussed fans’ infatuations with her booty.
“I don’t mind the question, I don’t mind the fascination. It’s all good,” she said. “I’ve said this before. It doesn’t define me, so I try my best not to focus my energy on it. Like if you guys focus energy on it, I don’t mind it. if people are sitting in a barbershop talking about my butt, it’s conversational. That’s what people are going to do. As long as they’re talking about Nicki Minaj, it’s good.” (“Full Throttle”)
Last year, Minaj denied speculation claiming she used butt pads.
Nicki Minaj doesn’t have much time for her detractors, including those who recently set the Web ablaze with speculation about whether her assets had been enhanced with “butt pads.” Did it bother her? “Absolutely not!” the Queens-bred rapper and Lil Wayne protégé says with a laugh. “People will pick anything to talk about, and that happens to be the thing at the moment. I love being a conversation piece.” (New York Post)
