Blake Lively Defends Her Use of 'Oakland Booty' Comment
Blake Lively shows off her baby bump in a form-fitting red dress while stepping out on Tuesday afternoon (June 21) in New York City.
“It’s something I was proud of. I never meant to offend anyone. But Sir Mix-A-Lot, he actually said a very nice thing, he was very defensive and kind, because it’s just about celebrating women’s bodies, and that’s what I was doing,” Blake said. “I would never want to hurt anyone’s feelings or upset anyone. I was celebrating my body… It’s nice to have a nice curve and not look like you’re starving to death.”
Blake also talked about the way woman feel they have to look these days due to the media.
“It’s also unfair what you see in the media so much. What I look like on a red carpet is not what I look like in real life. Even in that dress, I’m wearing a great, tiny corset that like someone has synched me in within an inch of my life and it’s the most favorable version,” Blake said.
“So when you look at yourself in the mirror at home and you don’t look like that, you think ‘well why do those people look like that’ but when I go home and take off that dress and look in the mirror, I don’t look like that either,” she continued. “It’s fun to dress up and look good on the red carpet but it’s not representative [of every day].”
FYI: Blake is wearing an Oscar de la Renta dress.
