Why Kim Kardashian Posed for Playboy

by at . Comments

There's only one thing Kim Kardashian has done more often than pose nude: talk about posing nude.

Through the years, the realty star has blamed her mother for forcing her to bare it all in Playboy in 2007, and also claimed she regrets the shoot because it made her feel uncomfortable.

Now, in the February issue of Glamour, Kardashian takes on a different view. She tells the magazine:

Kim for Glamour

“It was an independence thing for me. I was always by the book, such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter. I felt like this was one decision that only I could make. And I think it looks great. I’ll have those pictures forever.”

Hmmm... so why did Kim make such a stink when a previously-unreleased photo from her shoot was released?

Below, we've included other excerpts from Kim's interview with the magazine, including her take on her own sexuality:

On her success: I’d be foolish not to take some of these opportunities that are coming my way. We all know this can go away at any moment.

On her siblings: We work really hard, and we fight like normal sisters fight, and we make up. We’re so supportive of each other. We always stick together. Having lots of siblings is like having built-in best friends.

On her status as a sex symbol: It’s definitely powerful. I don’t find myself as sexy as everyone thinks. I’m a lot more insecure than people would assume, but with little stupid things. When I get dressed, I’m always so indecisive.

On advice for other women: It’s a process. You have to learn to accept it. You have to learn to like what you see in the mirror. There are definitely times when I don’t feel like myself, but you have to fake it until you make it.

On life at 30: If you had asked me five years ago what I would be doing at 30, I would have said, ‘Married with a kid or two.’ Not in a million years did I dream that I would be doing all the things that I’m doing.

This fame whore has 5 different stories for every nude shoot she does. i was totally in fucking love with kim when i first started visiting these sites......but holy fuck. can you say over exposed?????? as for brett..........shut the fuck up lol. You go to the gym and have to look your best cuz your a "model" and thats so hard???? give me a fucking break. every normal person exercises regularly and i highly doubt its hard doing what you do. Although.....left foot, right foot, left foot. yeah.....i can see how that gets confusing for your little mind.

She is just answering what was asked. U losers read much? I HAVE tHE ACTUAL GLAMOUR ISSUE....... IDIOTS. If u guys have so much hatred against her then go elsewhere HELLo!!?? G.A.L. I am a model & it is hard work to always look ur best, stay in shape, & make sure that THE WHOLE DAMN WORLD HAS A POSITIVE VIEW on U... So what if she's all over the place? Wouldn't u if u had an ounce of fame that she does? $$$$$ she's not stupid, she knows her time could be up soon, (hense the music single) so she accepts any offer that pays good $$. If someone offered u 10,000 to strip to ur tighty whiteys, with ur fat & cellulite hangin' out....... I guaran-f*cken-tee that u would. Give me a break people!!!!!!


she already has everything anyone could possibly ever have but begs for so much more she makes me soooo sick spoiled ass rotten


You know, I wonder if she is going to talk about this for the rest of her pointless life to stay relevant in the media cuz nothing else better is going to happen to her. It's not like she was forced so no one cares about her opinion! I could give a flying fuck why she did or didn't do things. She's just like Kate G. and wants to whine about everything that they caused in there own lives. Do you want some cheese with your whine LOSER


Use to like her, now I think the whole family is as lame as Chris Jenner has been since he left the Olympic. Whine, whine, whine! pfffttt
