Diddy absolutely loves Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty” music video — maybe a little more than the average fan. "Oh my God! Oh my God!” was his first reaction to watching a small clip of the video during an Access Hollywood Live interview this week.
Lopez and Diddy were one of the more infamous celebrity couples back in the day. Their admittedly tumultuous relationship only lasted two years but it’s clear that nearly 15 years later the Sean John mogul has fond memories of their time together.
“I am so lucky to have that great woman in my history. She is one of the greatest I've ever seen. Go girl! Go girl!” he continued, clapping at the Hype Williams-directed visual for Lopez’s latest single.
As for the butt, it’s a “work of art,” says Diddy. "It's something that will go down in history. For real, it will. Also, her talent, her drive, her determination. She will never give up. She's a great friend of mine, always will be my friend, and I mean that thing is just incredible."
Lopez, 45, became famous for her curves long before a plump backside became a hot accessory. If there was such a title, the Bronx-born bombshell could easily be considered a pioneer of the butt movement, and in comparison to Kim Kardashian, Lopez has the better rump, according to Diddy. “Noooo waaaay!” he said when asked if Kardashian’s butt was even in the same “conversation” as that of Lopez. “No disrespect Kanye, Kim, but that thang right there? That thang right there is something special.”
Diddy, who is currently dating Cassie, said that he doesn’t want to get back with the now single Lopez, they’re just great friends. She shared a similar reaction when responding to his video critique.
“Here's the thing about me and Puff — and I'm sorry, I'll always call him Puff — we always root for each other. We always support each other,” the mother of twins told E! News. “It's great after all these years to know and watch him do all that he's done ... We shared a moment in our lives and that never goes away. There's nothing but love and respect and always somebody over here cheering for you."
