JWoww Calls NYE Photo Of Her Butt ‘Disgusting,’ Makes Video To ‘Prove’ Otherwise (NSFW)

Jenni

As many of you know, a photo of The Jersey Shore star Jennifer “JWoww” Farley began circulating around the Internet in the past couple of days. And, as Ashley pointed out yesterday, it seems like the majority of coverage regarding the photo was not actually about the wardrobe malfunction itself — FFS, if we made a big deal about every time somebody from Jersey Shore lifted up his or her shirt/skirt, we’d never report anything else — but instead, people were just making fun of her cellulite.

As a result, JWoww seemed to find it necessary to make an entire video ”proving” to people that her ass is not “pretty vile, pretty disgusting,” as she deems the picture. While wearing underwear in what she titles “#myass part 1!!!! My real booty lol make fun of mine not a fake one lol,” she turns sideways in front of the camera and shows her tattoo, explaining that if the photo were “real,” you’d be able to see it (although I don’t understand how that’s true given the angle, but okay). She then gives this view so everybody will, um, be shown the truth:

JWoww

She also says, “You can’t Photoshop a video.” For the record, folks, you absolutely can do that. I dated a digital effects artist and the stuff he used to fix? My goodness, it’s pretty amazing. I mean, it’s not Photoshop anymore, technically, but if you couldn’t edit video, how on earth would films be created? But I digress; we are all aware that The Jersey Shore folks aren’t exactly known for their precision.

In Part 2 of the video set, she states:

“‘FYI, I did not pull a Britney Spears and not wear underwear. I forever wear underwear. So, for whoever photoshopped that on me, at least you could have put some drawers on me, at least you could have put my tattoo… I know this is not Victoria’s Secret, but it is mine, and it took a lot of doughnuts and cheeseburgers to get this! So F-you photographer and all the outlets that actually think that that’s my ass.”

Thanks, JWoww, now I want a doughnut.

Anyway, I am so disappointed that people were that ridiculously snarky about the photos. EOnline called them “pretty unflattering photos.” Buzzfeed warned its readers that they would “never unsee” the photos. In general, it seemed like the media wanted to insult the fact that she has an ass that isn’t carved like a Greek god’s and actually has cellulite — which, in the event that you didn’t know, most people have. In fact, even the most athletic women (and men) I know have at least a bit.

But regardless of whether or not a person is athletic or works out or eats doughnuts and cheeseburgers or has never seen the inside of a gym, his or her cellulite is nobody’s goddamn business and certainly doesn’t deserve to be snarked. While I think the video itself is just plain silly, I also find it strikingly sad; nobody should feel like they’re required to “prove” anybody wrong regarding their own bodies.

    I don’t know why people freak out so much about cellulite. Almost every woman has or will have it in their lifetime, it’s perfectly natural and normal, and it isn’t a horrible thing! Also you can’t make it go away so don’t buy the stupid creams.

    I’m kind of disappointed she made a video ‘disproving’ the photo. First of all, that is totally her ass. The video was useless. When you bend over, almost all of your cellulite smooths out anyway, so that video does not prove anything. Second of all, the photo of her ‘vile cellulite’ IS NOT EVEN BAD! If I had fluorescent lighting on my butt, my cellulite would look 10x worse! You’d think by now we’d be over this cellulite phase. Every female, celeb and non celeb says they have cellulite. Sooooo why is this still a thing the media reports on?

      I am a little disappointed (though mostly saddened), too. And considering the photo came from a source that’s widely recognized to be reliable, it’s kind of difficult to prove that it’s “not her ass.” I know my own ass sometimes looks smooth and sometimes looks like water that somebody’s been skipping stones on because our bodies’ appearances change depending on what we ate that day, how hydrated we are, which products we use, what lighting we’re in, and so on.

      I think certain members of the media still reports on celebrities having cellulite because they know that readers want to see famous people looking “normal” and whatnot, which would be significantly less common if airbrushing wasn’t so widely used. =(

      I definitely agree. I just thought her of all people would be like, ‘screw all of you, yea I have cellulite,’ but instead went on to call it vile and disgusting haha. Oh jwoww.
