Sir Mix-a-Lot has finally weighed in on the drama over Blake Lively's recent Instagram post where she captioned a photo of herself from Cannes with one of the more famous line from his hit, "Baby Got Back."

"For her to look at her butt and that little waist and to say, ‘L.A. face with an Oakland booty' doesn't that mean that the norm has changed, that the beautiful people have accepted our idea of beautiful? That's the way I took it," he shared with Pret-a-Reporter.

"Now let me do this, as far as the critics are concerned: I don't want to come off like, ‘Oh, he's an Uncle Tom,' because I'm not. If what Blake Lively meant by that comment was, ‘Oh my goodness, I've gained weight, I look horrible,' if that's what she meant—and I doubt that she did—then I'm with the critics. But no one in the world is gonna tell me that a woman that wears that dress is thinking that she's fat. No, I'm sorry, it just doesn't happen. It sounds like to me like she was giving the line props."

The rapper continued, "I think it's almost a nod of approval, and that was what I wanted. I wanted our idea of beautiful to be accepted. I think now not only is it accepted, but it's expected."

The ball's in your court, Blake!
