claims she popularized “the derriere phenomenon
” in a bizarre social media rant on Sunday. The former model posted a throwback picture to Instagram along with a lengthy caption where she proceeded to credit herself for “paving the way for thick girls.”
“I would like to shed light to almost 21 years of modeling ..I don't post much about it & new followers don't even know I had a career in modeling they just see a wife, mother and someone that was on reality tv but just like every actor, singer, rapper, entertainer I'm proud of what I've done,” the post began.
“I feel people should know it wasn't easy..I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful..this was back before social media when magazines were popping, back before Kim K, Nicki Minaj..( I mention them because young people see pop culture as the history makers but they need to know it started somewhere before them, this was also back before the plastic surgery craze.”
“During my time it was pretty much Jlo that was making waves with the derriere phenomenon and Cindy Margolos was a popular bikini model and Buffie the Body was a popluar urban model and of course I need to give props to Anna Nicole Smith for also seeing this vision..To have booty it was considered to be fat in the modeling world.. But I helped changed the minds of what booty was,” Ice-T’s wife continued.
“Today it’s a normal thing to see all different shapes and sizes, no one even thinks about it anymore. I helped history..I don't want to toss it aside like it was nothing...I'd like to think some of my modeling was meaningful... After tons of calendars, DVD's over 100 magazine covers and editorials I'm still standing..Thank you for all years of support. Power to the booty and strong healthy women!”
Social media users were left confused by the post and left comments like “she did what?” and “Soooo… Is she claiming to not have plastic surgery or…”
