Kim Kardashian opened up about the reasons she decided to bare all in her now infamous Paper magazine photo shoot while appearing on Australian TV show The Project — and she even taught show host Rove McManus how to balance a champagne glass on his butt!
The reality TV show star was guest of honor on the popular Aussie show on Tuesday, Nov. 18, and reacted to critics who suggested that stripping off in a magazine isn’t a great example for her young fans.
“I was so honored and excited to work with [photographer Jean-Paule Goude] because he is a legend, and for me that was something I wanted to do to make myself feel confident,” she explained. “As a role model I’m not saying anyone else should do that, but for me it was an art project and it taught me to do what you want to do,” she continued.
“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,” she said.
Show host McManus admitted to enjoying the photographs himself, but had one question that kept worrying him.
“Can you actually balance a champagne glass on your derriere, or was it all photoshopped?” he asked his guest, who was dressed in a black jumpsuit with plunging neckline.
