Coco Austin Roasted After Claiming She Created “The Derriere Phenomenon”

coco austin

“To have booty, it was considered to be fat in the modeling world. But I helped changed the minds of what booty was.”

This comes from curvaceous model Coco Austin, who was recently lambasted for claiming to have opened the door for thick women to be seen as desirable.

In a lengthy Instagram post, the mother and wife of actor Ice-T shared a photo of herself from her early modeling days, rocking a barely-there swimsuit while explaining she started “the derriere phenomenon” years “before Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj” were on the scene.

She also credited Jennifer Lopez and the late Anna Nicole Smith with popularizing bigger butts.

“During my time it was pretty much J.Lo that was making waves with the derriere phenomenon. Of course, I need to give props to Anna Nicole Smith for also seeing this vision,’ added the former reality star.

“I helped history. I don’t want to toss it aside like it was nothing.”

She went on, “I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful…This was also back before the plastic surgery craze.”

Check out the full post below.

I would like to shed light to almost 21 years of modeling ..I don’t post much about it & new followers don’t even know I had a career in modeling they just see a wife,mother and someone that was on reality tv but just like every actor, singer, rapper, entertainer I’m proud of what I’ve done. I feel people should know it wasn’t easy..I helped pave the way for thick girls during the skinny genre (during the Kate Moss days what they call the waif era) to be noticed as beautiful..this was back before social media when magazines were popping, back before KimK, Nicki Minaj..( I mention them because young people see pop culture as the history makers but they need to know it started somewhere before them, this was also back before the plastic surgery craze. During my time it was pretty much Jlo that was making waves with the derriere phenomenon and Cindy Margolos was a popular bikini model and Buffie the Body was a popluar urban model and of course I need to give props to Anna Nicole Smith for also seeing this vision..To have booty it was considered to be fat in the modeling world.But I helped changed the minds of what booty was.Today its a normal thing to see all different shapes & sizes, no one even thinks about it anymore. I helped history in someway.I don’t want to toss it aside like it was nothing.I’d like to think some of my modeling was meaningful.After tons of calendars,DVD’s over 100 magazine covers and editorials I’m still standing.Thank you for all years of support .Power to the booty and strong healthy women! (This pic is from one of my motorcylce calendars) Update to post!!! This was posted yesterday & ALL comments were positive until race was brought up today.Let me remind you 20 years ago there were not a lot of white girls w/ thick bodies in the modeling game.They didn’t consider my body type as the standard therefore It was harder to work in the industry.I was one of the 1st white models to break the mold & go mainstream with my body type and to let people know its OK to be curvy in the modeling world.Today curvy is the norm but when I first started out it wasn’t. Yesterday I felt I explained this thoroughly but I see some of you needed more details

A post shared by Coco (@coco) on

Plenty of social media followers called out the curvy celeb, saying there’s no way a White woman could have “paved the way” for thick women in any regard. See some of the best reactions below.

Coco Rocha told her friends about pregnancy on social media

OHMYGOSSIP — Coco Rocha revealed her pregnancy to her friends for the first time on social media.
The 29-year-old model announced she was expecting her second child with her artist husband James Conran on Instagram last week to the delight of her fans and she has now revealed she even told some of her nearest and dearest the same way.
She told the New York Post’s Page Six column: “It is easier announcing my pregnancy on social media instead of calling people – but on the other hand some friends and family members want to make sure you call them and get that respect of being called first. There are haters out there, so you either shut them down or remove them from out of your life.”
Coco announced her pregnancy by posting a video on Instagram of herself standing in a nursery wearing a full-length, fitted, black evening dress and holding her stomach and standing next to her daughter Ioni Conran.
Two-year-old Ioni then jumps out from behind her and shouts: “Surprise! There’s a baby in mummy’s tummy!”
Coco captioned the video: “Your attention please! @ioniconran has a very important announcement to make!! #babyconran2. (sic)”
Coco had recently admitted she is a lot more selective about the modelling jobs she takes on now she is a mother.
She said: “Now that I’m a mom, when it comes to campaigns and editorials, I look at the bigger story. I ask if that’s a good fit for the Coco brand, should I work with every editorial that comes my way, every brand. It’s about pinpointing what’s good … I didn’t want to be consumed by my career. Now we have a baby girl and that’s what grounds me. I travel as much as I can with my family. My hair and make-up team are people that I absolutely love, who make me laugh. We’re not curing cancer. We’re going to do our jobs, doing it well, and realise we can have fun.”

I’m a survivor of the “Frozen” short that played before “Coco”

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

I have been to hell and back, and still I live to tell the tale.

And by that, I mean I successfully made it through 45 minutes of previews, advertisements, and a never-ending Frozen short when I took my 3-year-old son to see Coco.

Seriously, that Frozen short, called Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, pushed the boundaries of the definition of “short.” By the time we left the theater, my son was graduating high school and had a prom date. That’s how long the Frozen short was.

A still from Olaf's Frozen Adventure, depicting two cartoon ladies, a cartoon guy and a ridiculous snowman

 

Originally we thought we were there to see Coco, as did most other people in the movie theater. Boy, were we in for a surprise.

After several previews — including an exhilarating-for-me, terrifying-for-children preview of A Wrinkle in Time — my husband, son, and I settled in for the legendary Pixar short. We are longtime Pixar short lovers, with Lava, Piper, and Sanjay’s Super Team among our favorites, and we love how much innovative storytelling can be compressed into a brief amount of time.

This time it was Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, which … okay. We are not Frozen people. We haven’t seen the original film, we don’t know any of the characters or the storyline, but we buckled in and were willing to go for the ride.

About 7 minutes in, I thought, “Certainly this will be over soon, right? This has to end. They can’t possibly sing another song.” Instead, they sang another song. Then 10 minutes came and went. At 15 minutes, I began humming the Rocky theme and telling myself, “Self. You can do this. You have to fight through the bad to earn the good.” At 16 minutes, all the kids seated around me squirmed, sobbed and begged for Coco to start. At 18 minutes, I left the theater to make sure I was in the correct place. Finally, a whopping 21 minutes later, our nightmare was over.

It was just so long. Have I mentioned that it was long?

A still from Olaf's Frozen Adventure, showing a snowman in front of a fireplace, which just seems silly

 

When children are crying and begging for the film to begin, your short is too long.

When people wonder if they are in the right theater, your short is too long.

When I develop 17 new wrinkles, qualify for an AARP card, and have my first grandchild while still captive in the audience, your short is too long.

A still from Olaf's Frozen Adventure, which shows a cartoon snowman on a front porch

 

I’m sure part of my frustration stemmed from my utter lack of Frozen knowledge. I spent a long time trying to piece together the story and characters. So one of the ladies was cursed? Is she magic? Are they both magic? Why was one of them shut inside a room? Who is the guy making phlegm soup? Why is the snowman talking? Why does he only have one tooth?

More importantly, why is this showing in front of Coco?

I don’t have a good answer for you, at least for that last question. All I know is that Olaf’s Frozen Adventure was originally intended to be an ABC television special, which explains the 21-minute length, but one year later it was announced that the featurette would precede Coco instead. (Although the decision to place a short film about stealing neighbors’ traditions directly before a film about Mexican traditions remains questionable.)

Apparently I’m not the only one. A lot of people hated the Frozen short too. Maybe you are one of them. (If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s a helpful article on how to avoid it.)

On a good note: Coco was phenomenal. Definitely see it.

Have you survived the Frozen short too?

Creating the Soundtrack for 'Coco'

“Never underestimate the power of music.” – Ernesto de la Cruz, Pixar’s Coco

 

The soundtrack to Pixar’s hit film Coco is far more than the usual collection of catchy pop singles that fill most movies these days, animated or otherwise, but rather a lifeline, upon which the audience sways, their emotions tightly tethered. In Coco, the music is a character in its own right, a hero in six strings steeped in the varied influences of Mexican culture. The music not…

Box Office: ‘Coco’ Beats ‘Justice League’ Over Holiday Weekend

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – Disney-Pixar’s “Coco” handily won the Thanksgiving holiday box office over the second weekend of Warner Bros.-DC Entertainment’s “Justice League,” with $ 71.2 million at 3,987 North American sites during the Wednesday-Sunday period.

Pixar’s Coco Tops Justice League at Thanksgiving Weekend Box Office

(NEW YORK) — Pixar’s “Coco” sang its way to the fourth best Thanksgiving weekend ever with an estimated $ 71.2 million over the five-day weekend, a total that easily toppled Warner Bros.’ “Justice League.”

“Coco” rode strong reviews and an A-plus CinemaScore from audiences to the top spot at the domestic box office. According to studio estimates Sunday, it grossed $ 49 million from Friday to Sunday. Centered on the Mexican holiday Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), “Coco” has already set box office records in Mexico, where it has made $ 53.4 million in three weeks.

After a disappointing debut last weekend, the much-maligned DC Comics superhero team-up film “Justice League” slid to second with $ 40.7 million. In the five-day holiday frame, it earned about $ 60 million. “Justice League” is faring better overseas, where it has made more than $ 300 million.

The two top spots told a familiar tale: Quality is trumping mediocrity at the box office, where Rotten Tomato ratings bear considerable weight and where word-of-mouth spreads lightning quick. “Coco” is Pixar’s sixth release to land an A-plus CinemaScore from audiences. The film’s Rotten Tomatoes rating, 96 percent fresh, is more than double that of “Justice League” (41 percent).

“In a world where moviegoing and quality seem to be connected, having a brand that has as consistently as Pixar has delivered on very high expectations definitely makes our work a little easier,” said Dave Hollis, distribution chief for the Walt Disney Co., which owns Pixar. “Consumers have really come to expect high quality. This is once again Pixar doing what they do best.”

The success of “Coco” came just as reports of sexual misconduct were published regarding Pixar co-founder and Disney Animation Chief Creative Officer John Lasseter. On Tuesday, Lasseter announced that he was taking “a six-month sabbatical.” He acknowledged “missteps” and “unwanted hugs” with employees. Disney has said it supports Lasseter’s leave of absence.

Lasseter has been foundational to the rise of Pixar and the revitalization of Disney Animation. “Coco” is the latest in a long line of hits he’s overseen.

After some early blunders (Disney tried to trademark “Dia de Los Muertos,” sparking a backlash), the studio strove to capture Mexican culture authentically in “Coco,” enlisting cultural consultants for their feedback. The film, directed by Lee Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina, is one of the largest U.S. productions ever to feature a largely all-Latino cast.

That makes “Coco” an anomaly in the Pixar canon but also in Hollywood. Hispanics made up 23 percent of frequent moviegoers last year, but they’re seldom catered to. Disney didn’t share ethnic demographics for “Coco” ticket buyers but said signs pointed to a high turnout among Latinos.

“Telling great stories that represent the audience is a part of what makes a film successful, especially when you get it right,” said Hollis.

Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for comScore, called the film’s result a positive story in “a week that was pretty challenging for Pixar.”

“The future may lie in content like this, where you’re telling stories about real human beings and about diversity,” said Dergarabedian. “The Hispanic audience is key to the success of any given box office year, given the frequency and passion for moviegoing.”

Still, the most profitable movie currently at the box office might be the Lionsgate family release “Wonder,” directed by Stephen Chbosky. Starring Jacob Tremblay and Julia Roberts, the film — which carries a production budget of $ 20 million — has made $ 69.4 million. It slid just 19 percent in its second week, with $ 22.3 million in ticket sales.

A number of specialty releases with Oscar ambitions also hit theaters over the weekend. Of them, Sony Pictures Classics’ “Call Me By Your Name” came out with the best per-screen average: $ 101,219 in four theaters. Not since “La La Land” has a film so packed theaters in specialty release. The movie, starring Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer, is about a young man’s coming of age in 1980s Northern Italy.

“Darkest Hour,” with Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill, debuted with $ 176,000 on four screens. The expanding releases of Greta Gerwig’s “Lady Bird” ($ 4 million on 791 screens) and Martin McDonaugh’s “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” ($ 4.4 million on 614 screens) also drew crowded theaters.

Less successful was the national rollout of “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” with Denzel Washington. Though it bested the other releases with $ 4.5 million on 1,665 screens, it’s an atypical downturn for one of the movies’ most consistently bankable stars. Not since Washington’s 2002 directorial debut, “Antwone Fisher,” has a film starring Washington performed as weakly nationwide.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

1. “Coco,” $ 49 million ($ 30.7 million international).

2. “Justice League,” $ 40.7 million ($ 72.2 million international).

3. “Wonder,” $ 22.3 million.

4. “Thor: Ragnarok,” $ 16.8 million.

5. “Daddy’s Home 2,” $ 13.3 million.

6. “Murder on the Orient Express,” $ 13 million.

7. “The Star,” $ 6.9 million.

8. “Bad Moms Christmas,” $ 5 million.

9. “Roman J. Israel, Esq.” $ 4.5 million.

10. “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” $ 4.4 million.

Coco: A must-see movie with heart, humor, and “aha” moments

by

Melissa Willets

posted in Life

It was a frantic Tuesday night. I’d just fought traffic for two hours to get to New York City for a screening of Coco, the new Disney Pixar film I’d been invited to attend, lucky me, on behalf of BabyCenter. The kids were whining and exhausted after a full day at school, and I was feeling frazzled.

I wrangled small, resistant bodies into coats and hats to fend off the freezing wind chill on the city streets. We made it to the theater (we had to run!), took our seats, and took a deep breath. We were in for a treat of a film. Coco both entertained, and managed to snuggle deep inside our hearts with its touching story and messages. Bottom line: This movie was totally worth the effort it took to get to the theater, and I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Coco is a new Disney Pixar film

In case you haven’t yet seen a preview for the movie, here’s a little bit about Coco’s premise. Basically, the story centers around the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.

An ofrenda from Coco

The main character is a little boy named Miguel, who dreams of becoming a famous musician like his great-great grandfather, Ernesto de la Cruz (who is voiced by Benjamin Bratt). The problem is that his family doesn’t approve, vehemently.

Through a series of magical events, Miguel is soon thrust into the world of the dead, where he meets his family members who have passed on.

Miguel goes to the world of the dead in Coco

His journey takes unexpected twists and turns, but ultimately, Miguel will learn some disturbing family secrets, and be forced to make a choice between his dream to become a musician, and the people he loves most.

You’ll have to watch Coco, when it comes out in theaters on November 22, to find out how Miguel’s destiny unfolds.

But here are a few hints about what happens in this colorful, musically-enchanting movie. First, a goofy, troublemaking character named Héctor (voice of Gael García Bernal), may not be who we think he is at first.

Miguel makes an unlikely friend in Coco

Second, parents should beware that there are a few scary sequences that made my kids cover their eyes, especially those featuring a spirit animal who starts off on the wrong foot with Miguel.

Coco's spirit animal is a little scary

Finally, be prepared to tear up during some scenes when Miguel learns about secret connections among his family members, and how much love truly matters. A song called “Remember Me,” which was written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez of Frozen fame, is sure to make you think about your loved ones who have passed on, and perhaps even rethink their roles in your life now that they are gone.

Coco and Miguel

Ultimately, Coco is a movie about how we are connected to family members alive and dead. It’s about how nothing is more important than love. It’s about not judging a book by its cover, so to speak. It’s about believing in yourself, and following your dreams.

The film definitely contains more than a few important messages for viewers of all ages. But if deep thinking isn’t your thing, Coco will make you laugh (skeleton humor abounds), awe you with its vibrant landscape, and catchy musical numbers, and shock you with plot twists you can’t possibly predict.

But if you let it, this film will stay with you long after its closing credits scroll off the screen.

Coco Ho Claims QS6,000 at the 2017 Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro

WSL PRESS RELEASE

PLAYA DE PANTIN, Galicia – Spain (Saturday, September 2, 2017) – The Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro culminated today with the victory of Coco Ho (HAW), 26, over Caroline Marks (USA), 15, in two-to-three foot surf.
Despite a near-disappearing act from the waves, the women’s final day was full of surprises and crowned the 2017 Champion in front of huge crowds enjoying the show from the iconic Pantin headland.

In the final, Caroline Marks was quick to take action and post a decent 6.17 in the opening minutes of the bout. Coco Ho had a slower start but after a few exchanges, found herself with priority when the first real wave of the final approached.

Starting on her backhand, the Hawaiian locked in two excellent turns right in the lip for an 8.83 and the lead. While Marks had a hard time keeping her composure under pressure, Coco continued to exploit the right sections and posted a 7.67 to put her opponent in a combination situation, and eventually take out the 2017 Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro. After the Pro Anglet last week, Coco Ho continued on her roll and signed back-to-back wins, adding an important 6,000 points to her 2017 QS tally.

“It’s been amazing to be back in Pantin, I can never believe how beautiful this place is,” Ho stated. “The waves have been really fun this week, and I’m stoked it’s my third time back and I finally got a good result! From the water it was insane to see so many people, so thank’s everyone for coming to support us.”

At only 15 years old, Caroline Marks claims a career-best runner-up at this level of competition, but it comes as no surprise as her season attests of the talent the Floridian-born surfer has shown. With another couple of big results under her belt, she has one foot anchored in the QS Top 6 and a potential seat on the 2018 Championship Tour roster.

“It’s been such an incredible week, I’m so blessed and grateful of my whole support crew,” Marks said. “I wasn’t really thinking about points, I’m really just trying to have fun surfing, but it’s really exciting. I’m simply just going to try my hardest in the next QS event and whatever happens, happens. I have a few trips between now and the Sally event so I’m going to keep on living the dream right now.”

In a wave-starved opening semifinal, Bronte Macaulay (AUS), 23, tried to keep busy and surfed three average waves to build a low-scoring heat total of 9.60. It seemed like the right option considering her opponent did not have a score on the board halfway through the heat, but Marks came back in the heat with a solid 7 point ride. The american only needed a minor score which she easily got in the dying moments of the heat, forcing Macaulay out in equal third place in Pantin.

“It was a tricky heat with not many waves and Caroline got the one set that came through,” Macaulay said. “It was one of those heats you wish you’d done differently, but I’m super happy to have a heat against her, she’s such an awesome person and has been ripping all event!”

The second semifinal unfortunately suffered the same swell-plague as Ho and Silvana Lima (BRA), 32, battled for the second spot in the final. This time, the patient approach of Lima did not pay off and it was Ho’s average scoreboard that was enough for the win. The Brazilian, who posted an incredible 18.66 total in the quarters did not get an opportunity to showcase her radical brand of surfing and bowed out in equal third place.

“I always have good results here in Pantin and I love coming back!” she said. “This result is great for the points, I feel a lot more comfortable now to re-qualify for next year. ”

The next call in Pantin will convene the men at 9 a.m Sunday for the finals.

The Pull&Bear Pantin Classic Galicia Pro is scheduled from August 29 – September 3, 2017 at playa de Pantin, Galicia / Spain. For all results, photos, video highlights and press releases, log on to worldsurfleague.com.
