It should come as no surprise that Jennifer Lopez, with all her curves, has managed to help many women on their journeys to loving their bodies. This even includes Khloe Kardashian!
In an interview with ELLE, the Kardashian sister opened up about women who served as a body-positive role model for her growing up. Specifically, the person who was able to make her feel like it was okay to have a larger-than-average (or rather larger than most were used to) type of booty. "It's so interesting because when I was growing up heroin chic was the really cool thing. And there was Kate Moss. And she was gorgeous, but I was like, 'I don't identify with that body.' I always, weirdly enough, was attracted to the Victoria's Secret models of the world because they were more voluptuous. It wasn't even because they were in bras and panties. It was like, 'Okay, I finally see bodies that are a little more like mine.' And they're not even bigger girls. They just have bigger breasts and a little curve," she told the magazine.
"When Jennifer Lopez did Selena I was like, 'Oh my God.' It was so relatable for me and my sisters. But at the time it was really only her. I don't remember a lot of other really strong women at the head of pop culture at that time. And now looking back at J. Lo there were so many girls with way bigger butts, but that was what we had. It's important to me, no matter what size I am or weight I am, to feel beautiful. Even at my biggest I was rocking body con dresses and you couldn't tell me twice. That's what I think Good American is. It's about women of individuality and diversity, but also about being comfortable in yourself. That's what we're trying to promote. It's not about fitting into a size two and that's what makes you beautiful. I just want people to be healthy and love who they are and be in control of your life. But that doesn't mean you have to be a size six."
The blonde reality TV personality isn't the only one who has credited J.Lo for helping her love her body. Demi Lovato also noted in the past that she was able to embrace her curves thanks to Ms. Lopez.
"I really credit women like Beyonce and Kim Kardashian… [they] completely revolutionized what our generation's view and perception of what beautiful is and I really think that they had a huge impact on that,” Lovato said on Access Hollywood. "Look at J.Lo, look at Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, Beyonce — who I don't really consider human, she is more like a goddess — they have amazing figures. It's more realistic and achievable."
And when it comes to the Kardashians, Jenny from the Block agrees she definitely helped pave the way. "I feel like I paved the way for them," she said on Watch What Happens Live. "There is plenty of room for all of the ass."
