Thick girls winnin

In 2014, Drake compared "thick" women lớn BBWs (Big Beautiful Women) in a rap verse for Nicki Minaj"s single "Only:"
She says I"m obsessed with thick women và I agree. That"s right, I lượt thích my girls BBW. The type that wanmãng cầu suông xã you dry và then eat some lunch with you. Yeah, so thick that everytoàn thân else in the room is so uncomfortable. Ass on Houston, Texas, but the face look just lượt thích Claire Huxtable.

This reignited an old debate about whether or not "thick" and "fat" are the same thing, and whether or not that even matters. Most people weighing in agreed that the definition depends on context. Diana Vega at Clutch said it best: "We really know that BBW or thiông xã, or whatever you want to điện thoại tư vấn it –- when Drake says it, when hip hop says it, it’s thiông xã in the right places. Big boobs, small waist, fat butt, thick thighs. The usual. Will you ever see Drake with a real BBW? A real woman with curves and maybe a little jiggle? Doubtful. That would be considered blasphemous and a true violation I’m sure."

8. "Thiông xã khổng lồ me means substantially curvy, but I see people use it to describe everything from a woman simply with a thiông chồng butt và thighs, khổng lồ a woman who is very overweight. To each their own!"
9. "I love the word thiông chồng. Love sầu it. Love sầu it. Love sầu it. I write romance novels và used thiông xã khổng lồ describe a heroine"s thighs.
