In a year-old episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, a pregnant Kim Kardashian revealed plans for her controversial Paper Magazine photoshoot

There are plenty of opinions going round the internet about Kim Kardashian‘s naked body right now. You probably have one, we certainly have one, but there’s no getting around the fact that we all want to have a look.

*Pauses to have another look*

The reality star posed for the cover of a magazine called Paper (is that clever? We can’t work it out), with only her breasts, bum and some champagne as accessories.

She’s naked. That’s what we mean.

And as new pictures flooded the web on Thursday, showing Kim doing a full-frontal nude shot plus showing off her breasts and mini-Kim (OK, what would you call it?), we discovered she’s been planning this naked shoot for over a year.

Back in September 2013, in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, a still-pregnant-with-North-West Kim told her family, ‘As soon as I pop this thing out, I want to do Playboy or some nude shoot.’

And she most certainly has.

You might not think it’s appropriate or whatever, but you have to admit she looks sensational. Kanye West is a lucky dude. It’s weird he doesn’t smile more.

And now the magazine’s editorial director, Mickey Boardman has spoken out about the massive amount of attention the pics have received. He says not only was the nudity all Kim‘s idea, but the 34-year-old did the shoot for FREEEEEEEE.

He says, ‘Kim‘s attitude was “If we’re gonna do it, let’s really go there.” And it was her idea to take off her clothes and show more than her butt. But we didn’t say, “Let’s do a cover with your butt hanging out.” She said she was willing to take her clothes off and one thing lead to another.’

That last line came off as a bit creepy.

He also addressed all those ‘Is it Photoshopped? How is that butt even possible?’ speculation, saying, ‘[There was] much less [retouching] than people think. That’s really what she looks like. That’s her. I would say it’s the normal amount of retouching that’s on a normal cover.”

And if you’re wondering who got the job of oiling up that glossy bum, Mickey says it was Kim‘s regular make-up artist, who she ‘works with a lot’.

Work hard kids, and one day maybe you too could end up greasing a reality star’s bum.
