Jennifer Lopez and P. Diddy Bonded Over J.Lo's Butt

Though really, who wouldn't?

Jennifer Lopez and P. Diddy's romantic spark may have extinguished in the '90s, but Diddy's admiration of her "work of art" butt fittingly launched a serious friend love fest between the two in interviews this week. Awww.

In an interview with Access Hollywood (opens in new tab) Tuesday, Diddy started the dialogue by putting the obvious out there: that Lopez's booty "is great. It's a work of art. It's something that will go down in history."

Like any true admirer, he dismissed J.Lo's competitor, Kim Kardashian's derriere immediately when asked. "No disrespect, Kanye and Kim, but that thing right there is something special," he said, watching Lopez shake her rear in her epic "Booty" video (opens in new tab).

Lopez, in turn, acknowledged his comments enthusiastically when asked about them during an interview with E! (opens in new tab) on Wednesday. "It's awesome," she said. "Here's the thing about me and Puff, and I'll always call him Puff, we always root for each other, we support each other."

"We try to do things that uplift, we try to do things through our art and our music, which is our love and our acting and everything that inspires people," she continued. "And to see him do all that he's done, to me, you know, makes me proud."

Despite the flurry of compliments, the two were quick to dismiss any romantic reconciliation. They're just good friends. "We shared a moment in our lives and that never goes away, you know," Lopez said. "There's nothing but love and respect and always somebody over here cheering for you." It was a cute moment that begs for more—namely, a J.Lo-P. Diddy "Booty 2" duet, we hope.
