Beyonce Is Bootylicious

March 15th, 2006 // 13 Comments

Beyonce is looking fierce. Her booty is looking fierce as well, and it should be. The term she coined for her hit “Bootylicious” is going to be included in the dictionary, and Beyonce is not happy about it.

Bootylicious, the term coined by the former Destiny’s Child star for her own dangerous curves – and made famous by the hit single of the same name – will reportedly be added to the dictionary.

But the Naughty Girl singer is not too impressed by her newfound status as a wordsmith.

“I’m not very proud of that. It’s in the dictionary – it’s crazy,” she said to Britain’s TV Hits magazine.

    I agree with Beyonce .. bootylicious should not be in the dictionary. I want to know what dictionary thou … if its gonna be in the slang dictionary then fine thats cool. Otherwise it should not step foot in a dictionary. Anywho she is lookin mad sexy in them pics. You go Beyonce !!

    From what I remember, there are guidelines for when something makes it into the dictionary. It must be in the common lexicon. It must be used five times or more, in print, and in context; for example not “bootylicious might be in the dictionary” but rather “Beyonce is bootylicious!” They have to be respected print sources too – The New Yorker as opposed to Hustler, for example.

    (Can you imagine the New Yorker printing the words “Beyonce is bootylicious!” in earnest?! Hehehe)

    Beyonce is such a bombshell. Just as talented as she is beautiful. I love that she has this great perspective on this dictionary thing. It is kinda bizarre. I don’t even think people say it that much if not referring to her or the song. Anyway, she should be in there under perfection. holla!

    She looks great but how much of these pic’s haven’t been airbrused up the ass? I mean I think it’s so pathetic to elevate these PEOPLE to these perfect ideals that they themselves can not reach. How can we really trust what we are shown in Magazines?

    I don’t see why she would get mad anyways. She wasn’t the 1st artist to use the word “bootylicious”. Snoop Dogg used it back in 1992 on “F*** Wit Dre Day” Off of Dr. Dre’s Chronic CD. The lyrics go:
    Your bark was loud, but your bite wasn’t vicious. And them rhymes you were kickin were quite bootylicious.

    Destiny’s Child song didn’t come out till 2001.

    Give credit where credit is due!! lol

    to glamourpuss…

    while I agree that most of the “posed” pics you see are airbrushed, Beyonce is one person who doesn’t need much airbrushing/photoshopping, if she even needs ANY. (check out for some before and after pics…it’ll blow your mind!)

    I’ve seen pics of her that are “candids” or paparazzi pics, and she looks great in those, too. I’m with you Kelsey…can I look like that for just ONE day?!

    and to Brihan…THANK YOU! it reminds me of the kids who say “Paul McCartney was in a band before WINGS?”

    I think that beyonce rocks and i think that bootyliscous was put in the dictionary and deserves to stay in there. Beyonce if you are looking at this I love you so much. Write me!! love ya so much!!

    Too late! The word bootylicious has already been added to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Beyoncé Knowles has said that her definition of the word is “beautiful, bountiful and bounceable.”
    And yeah, once a word or phrase becomes widely used and employed and becomes part of the cultural lexicon, it becomes legit. Soon, every word of hip hop origin will be in the dictionary. What will become of the Queen’s English then??….

    Beyonce didnt make that word up. I heard Snoop say it first. Maybe to white people she made it up, because you know they are behind time anyways. But being that white people love the overrated singer they will give her credit for stuff she didnt even do. And her body is garbage. Did ya’ll know that she got liposuction and her butt done. She doesnt have the biggest ass Buffie the Body does, now she is bootylicious. Beyonce is fake, she is pretty but fake.
