Karrueche Talks Being Body Shamed For Not Having A Big Booty


Published July 19, 2018

Ever since Karrueche stepped onto the scene as Chris Brown’s girlfriend, she’s repped hard for little booties and bobbies everywhere. In an all-new interview and spread with Paper Magazine, she admits to her insecurities about her body before becoming team #LittleBootiesMatterToo and #IttyBittyTittyCommittee, going as far as almost getting plastic surgery.
"I used to think I had to be thick and have big boobs," she explained. "I thought about getting my boobs done, but I was like, one: I don't know how my body's going to react to that, and two: why am I changing who I am because of other peoples' comments? I can represent other girls out there and make them feel confident, which is hard in this world where everyone just wants to be thicc."

The model and Claws actress said she hopes she can be a positive influence on other girls who are shaped like her.  
“We as a people need to understand society's thought process of what beauty is: a slim waist, a fat booty, thick thighs, big boobs," she told the mag. "Not everyone has that. That's not average at all, most of the girls who look like that are buying it. It's wrong for these young girls who grow up with this message and think they have to look a certain way."
