American Idol advisor/Interscope Records boss Jimmy Iovineand photographer Raphael Mazzucco are teaming up to publish a book that pays homage to full-figured women — specifically, their butts.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pair will releaseCulo, which draws its title from the Italian word for the posterior. The photography book will be devoted to capturing "the new trend in art, fashion and pop culture in which the female bottom is the core of sexuality, desire and empowerment."

"Interscope Records has always been a heat-seeking missile when it comes to shifts in popular culture, whether inciting them or reacting to them swiftly. The impetus for this book is a little of both," Iovine writes in Culo's foreword.
Adds Mazzucco: "I have enjoyed every single moment I've spent in the company of these breathtaking women, of having the air sucked out of the room and feeling my heart race from the sheer joy of seeing my vision come to life."
Artwork from Culo was featured on Sunday's episode of Entourage. Mazzucco guest-starred on the episode and photographed Vince (Adrian Grenier).
