Reality TV star Kim Kardashian opened up about the reasons behind the now-infamous nude photo shoot while appearing on Australian TV show The Project.
Kardashian said the pics were an art project for her and that she wanted to do them because they helped boost her confidence and self-esteem.
“I was so honored and excited to work with [photographer Jean-Paul Goude] because he is a legend, and for me that was something I wanted to do to make myself feel confident. 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. 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.”
Show host Rove McManus admitted to enjoying the photographs and wanted to know whether she could actually balance a champagne glass on her derriere or was it all photoshopped.
“My back hurt for about a week after that shoot…I used muscles..[Goude] has an art of posing you and it was definitely not comfortable.”
