Pippa Middleton doesn't understand the American fascination with butts, so we'd love to hear what she thinks about Kim Kardashian raving about her much-admired British buttocks.

"I love her," the E! star raved to me exclusively last night about Kate Middleton's sister. "She has an amazing booty. She's beautiful."

The reason I asked is because Pippa referenced Kim's tush in a column she recently wrote for The Spectator's Christmas Special.

"No year is complete without a bottom story, and the 'Rear of 2014' award undoubtedly goes to Kim Kardashian, after her posterior exploded all over the internet last month," she writes. "I must say that mine—though it has enjoyed fleeting fame—is not comparable."

She also writes, "But the Kim butt story did make me pause. What is it with this American booty culture? It seems to me to be a form of obsession. Kim's aim, apparently, was to break the Internet, but I'm not sure she's going the right way about it."

Perhaps Kim and Pippa could have a booty-off—that would certainly break the Internet!

Kim defended her Paper magazine shoot by photographer Jean-Paul Goude in the name of art.

"I was so honored and excited to work with [Goude] because he is a legend, and for me that was something I wanted to do to make myself feel confident," she said during an appearance on the Australian TV show The Project. "As a role model I'm not saying anyone else should do that, but for me it was an art project and it taught me to do what you want to do."

She also said, "I'm never one to preach, but I felt really positive and really good about myself. I love the photos, I did it for me. I hope other people like them."

Kim's booty wasn't on display too much last night at Rihanna's Diamond Ball. She wore a black Balenciaga gown but her rear was covered up by a long black evening coat.
