Fat-bottomed girls rejoice!

Not only do fat-bottomed girls make the rockin' world go round, they also tend to be better able to fight off heart disease and diabetes than their apple-shaped sisters and brothers, according to a new study out of the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolism.

So in the words of Sir Mix-a-Lot, shake that healthy butt! Baby got back!

Fat needs definition.

If we are talking J-Lo and the like then I hardly think "fat" applies and
she would look rather fine... bent over (ahem).

Pert derrieres preferred...but curves are always best !

Just to clarify, a few extra pounds in the tuchus does not mean "fat." The study had more to do with a person's shape. People who are pear shaped,i.e., are plumper or curvier south of their equator, apparently do better than their apple-shaped brethren (i.e., those who carry extra pounds in their middle) when it comes to avoiding heart disease and diabetes.
