Bass Gets New Booty

In this week's "What's Your Problem?" I spoke with performance artist Holly Bass, who challenges media stereotypes of black women by incorporating a humongous detachable butt into her routines. In order to mock-up this bigger booty, Bass invented what she calls "booty balls," a pair of basketballs that she straps on top of her own derrière. So, what's the problem? I don't want to give away the ending, but let's just say it involved some tightening up of some loose, err … okay, okay, some loose basketballs. Below: the evolution of Bass's booty.
