Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Nude Photo Shoot

No regrets here! Kim Kardashian, naturally, faced some criticism for her naked photo shoot in Paper Magazine, but she’s made it clear she’s proud of the pictures. The reality star is currently in Australia to promote her new fragrance, and opened up for the first time about why she decided to strip down completely.

“I was so honored and excited to work with [photographer Jean-Paul Goude] because he is a legend,” she said on Australian TV show The Project. “For me, that was something that I knew I wanted to do to make myself feel confident. To each his own.”

Of course, that doesn’t mean the 33-year-old is trying to tell any of her young fans to do the same. “As a role model, I’m not saying anyone else should do that, but for me, I looked at it as an art project,” she continued. “This was something that was going to make me feel confident and make me feel good. And it taught me to do what you want to do. Everyone should do what they’re comfortable with, and I’m never one to preach, but I felt really positive and really good about myself. I love the photos, I did it for me — I hope other people like them.”

In one of the now-viral pics, Kim balances a glass of champagne on her famous backside, a move which she says wasn’t photoshopped, but “definitely uncomfortable.” “My back hurt for, like, a week after that shoot,” she laughed.
