In this, the Year of the Butt, it's hard to say who came out on top. 2014 was when we, as a culture, decided that all butts were awesome, but big ones were especially rad. Even fashion got in on the act: Models (hilariously) learned the "Anaconda" dance backstage at Alexander Wang and Vogue, of all publications, deemed it the "Dawn of the Big Butt."
Truthfully, we're all winners here. I mean, who doesn't love butts? But (hah!) for the sake of giving 2014's Year in Butts the sendoff it deserves, we're ranking the top five ladies who truly owned this movement. Read on.
5. Jennifer Lopez
God damn, that we should all look so amazing in our mid-40s. J.Lo holds her own against Iggy Azalea, one of this year's breakout stars, in her video for "Booty." For providing us with an anthem for the Year of the Butt, and for being the og celebrity mascot for ample rears, she makes our number five slot.
4. Jen Selter
The bona fide Instagram celebrity (she currently has 5 million followers) is almost single-handedly responsible for bringing the word "belfie" (butt selfie, duh) into the popular vernacular, and 2014 was the year she capitalized on the movement. The 21 year old even landed a multi-year deal with a fitness company.
3. Iggy Azalea
To quote Alyssa, "She brought that thing everywhere!" If you didn't see Iggy Azalea's rear end in 2014, you weren't paying attention.
2. Kim Kardashian
That's sweet — you thought this British GQ shoot was going to be the most you saw of Kimmy K's bod this year, didn't you?
WRONG, Y'ALL. The reality TV star teamed up with Paper magazine to #BreaktheInternet by baring the entirety of her super-oiled up body — including DAT ASS.
1. Nicki Minaj
Come on, like this was even a fair fight. From the first few bars of her single "Anaconda," sampling Sir Mix-a-Lot's "Baby Got Back," we all knew this was destined to be the Year of Nicki's Buns, hun.
