In MC Solaar's (really great) song, La Belle et le Bad Boy, he raps about the life of an outlaw.
Risqué pour les pommettes, les mecs sortent des Baumettes
In english, people will use the word "butt" or "ass" to refer to a person in general. Like "Thanks for saving my ass."
In french, is "pommettes" (="cheekbones") commonly used in the same way?
Or is Solaar simply using pommettes because it rhymes with Baumettes?
