Sir Mix-A-Lot gave Blake Lively the line that won her some recent online blowback — in our quick-to-reprimand PC age. Mix-A-Lot‘s “Baby Got Back,” praising the ample backsides of certain curvy women, contains the lines Lively quoted — an LA Face and an Oakland booty. But Lively, a white Hollywood star, doesn’t have a license — according to critics — to use those words (which have racial implications). Anyway, to prove there are all kinds of Oakland bodies, here are 7 of them. It takes all kinds. Maybe she meant one of these…some back, some not so much.
