Today’s Lady News: Diddy Publishes Photography Book About Butts

  • Diddy, Interscope’s Jimmy Iovine and photographer Rafael Mazzucco have published a new book about women’s butts called Culo by Mazzucco. (Culo is the Italian word for ass.) As an appreciator of booty, I think the books sounds like 240 pages of awesome. But some might say it “objectifies women by way of dismemberment,” as Clutch Magazine suggests.
