So everyone’s seen them, and if you haven’t where have you been?! The world went CRAZY about those Kim Kardashian West pictures for Paper Magazine. Kimmy K left nothing to the imagination this time (not that there was much anyway), when she stripped off and smiled for the camera. The pictures had the tagline ‘Break the internet’, which she had a good go at doing. The photos were taken by Jean-Paul Goude and he also used Kim to recreate his iconic “Champagne Incident” shot (an image also known as Carolina Beaumont, New York for the name of the model and the location in which it was taken).
Everyone knows Kim Kardashian; she is very, very famous. She has a daughter named North, with the infamous Kanye West and has around 25 million Twitter followers. She is constantly in the spot light and the media. On Wednesday Paper Magazine released two photos of Mrs West and released two more today. Thursday’s pictures included a bit extra viewing. I personally don’t understand her reasoning for the full frontal nude photo, we already know she has a lovely, curvy figure with a rather astonishing backside. What was the need for her to show her other stuff to the entire world? Somethings are best kept away. I really didn’t enjoy waking up this morning, having my breakfast and doing my daily Facebook scroll and seeing Kim’s frontal bits. No thank you. Surely Kanye can’t be okay with this? I thought he was supposed to be some crazy control freak…But apparently he’s fully behind his wife (no pun intended). He took to twitter sharing the butt picture with #ALLDAY.
My biggest concern is what is she going to say to her daughter North when she’s old enough to understand what her mother has done? Personally, as much as I love my Mum I’d be completely shocked by seeing pictures of her naked and knowing that the world has seen them too. Poor North, I’m not saying Kim’s a bad mother, however I personally see these pictures as a bad choice as a mother and a role model to young female fans. Girls need to stop aspiring to women like Kim Kardashian, she got famous for an “accidental” sex tape, married a rude rapper and is now showing her entire naked body off for the world to see. Why do we as people take interest to people like her? I’ve clearly taken an interest as I’m currently writing this blog about her; it must be her mind blowing actions that caught my attention. In the interview with Paper Magazine discussing her social media life Kim said, “I love sharing my world with people,” to which I believe this is just another sentence for ‘I like a lot of attention’.
It’s not just Kim who got some attention this week via social media, her younger sister Khloe released a photo on instagram that caused quite a big response. Khloe shared to her followers a photo of herself, and sisters Kourtney and Kim with the words “The only KKK to ever let black men in”. Is she stupid? Some user on instagram commented this, ‘This isn’t funny at all. Why make jokes about a group that terrorised and still terroises my people. You’re a clown for this. Very disrespectful and disgusting for this. A joke.’ clearly her fans didn’t see the funny side to it.
I found that one hilarious thing came from Kim’s Paper Magazine shoot was the photo shopped pictures that people were sharing on the internet. I’ve shared some of my favourites below…
