It may just be a bare butt. We all have one, but admittedly (with the possible exception of Jennifer Lopez) no one has one quite like Kim Kardashian, as evidenced by her latest racy Paper magazine cover. Even though the 34 year-old reality star's plan to "break the Internet" didn't quite come off, she got tongues wagging—as she always does. All it took was a good bottle of olive oil and a shot of her mooning for the cameras.
Some Instragrammers were concerned about kids accessing the image. And fellow celeb, Glee actress, Naya Rivera's distaste for the cover was palpable.
"I normally don't. But...you're someone's mother..." said 27-year-old Rivera. Yes, she is someone's mother. That's kind of the point.
I happen to be pretty conservative, but even I can see the folly in Rivera's statement. What, so now that you're a mom you have to retire your hot and sexy title and start wearing aprons? What ever happened to "If you've got the post-baby bod, flaunt it?"
And though I'm no fan of Kim Kardashian, I've got to give the woman her due for working the PR machine. For someone who got her start from a sex tape, she's gone on to make a lucrative "career" from it. I may not agree with the means, but clearly the Kardashians can be credited with having some serious business savvy. Any public move she makes is carefully orchestrated and executed, and not one single "peek at her cheeks" escapes prior planning. ANd look! Here we are now talking about it.
Well played, Kim. Well played.
Like J-Lo before her, Kardashian is making hay while the sun shines (on her posterior, mainly). I'm no fan by any stretch, but I'll never blame or judge her for it.
