Jennifer Lopez

: Lord of Butt

Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez is often referred to as the "Lord of Butt", or 萝霸 (luo ba), in Hong Kong and China.

Aside from the obvious reference to J. Lo's shapely behind, which she flaunted bare in her music video for Booty, the term is also somewhat of a pun, as "luo ba" sounds very similar to how "Lopez" is translated and pronounced in Chinese, "Luo pei zi".
