Blake Lively finally addressed that ‘Oakland Booty’ comment from a few weeks ago that caused quite a stir on social media. Blake stopped by Sway In the Morning and explained what happened. “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. 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 continued, “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. 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. It’s fun to dress up and look good on the red carpet but it’s not representative [of every day].”
