Jennifer Lopez's Butt: Star's Behind Takes A Backseat (PHOTOS)

At one point it was nearly impossible to mention Jennifer Lopez without talking about her butt.

The actress and dancer arguably made larger behinds sexy again after years of waif-thin heroin-chic models and actresses ruling the pages of magazines in the early and mid-'90s. Lopez was so known for her derrière that she was rumored to have had it insured for $27 million to a whopping $1 billion -- though she's always brushed those reports off as ridiculous.

These days, however, Lopez's butt has taken a backseat to other behinds that have eclipsed her in their media prominence.

Today, reality star Kim Kardashian holds the title for most-discussed bottom. The star's asset -- and its authenticity -- has proved to be such a hot topic that Kardashian went so far as to have her butt x-rayed to prove she's just shaking what her mama gave her.

And while Kim is the queen of the booty, there's no denying that Beyonce gives the reality star a run for the title. The "Bootylicious" star has a bum so respected that in 2012, a newly discovered horse fly with a golden-haired bum was named after the star.

Another contender for the crown is none other than Nicki Minaj. It's widely rumored she had butt implants in order to achieve such a large behind -- but so what? The singer is more than happy to show off what she paid for, if her bottom isn't courtesy of mother nature:
