W Magazine Responds to Kontrived Krying of Kim Kardashian

by at . Comments

On this week's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, Kim Kardashian pretended to be upset by last year's naked pictorial in W Magazine.

It was a virtuoso performance, capped by Kim crying that she was misled because the photos were "full-on porn" and then stating: "I'm never taking my clothes off again, even if it's for Vogue." We have three responses:

  1. That sucks for Kris Humphries.
  2. This is an example of Kim Kardashian at her best/most nauseating: posing naked, playing a victim and still managing to shill for a company.
  3. We wonder how many takes it took for Kim to make her tears look believable.

W, meanwhile, had a response of its own. The publication released a statement today that reads as ridiculously as Kim sounds:

"In keeping in line with the theme of W Magazine's November Art Issue, Kim Kardashian's cover was conceived as an artistic collaboration with well-known artist Barbara Kruger, and was a meditation on the influence that reality TV has on contemporary culture.

"The inside portfolio documented the career and power of Kim Kardashian as a work of art, using the language of artists like Jeff Koons ... and Gilbert & George."

An artistic collaboration?!? A meditation on reality TV?!? You photographed Kim Kardashian nude because it would bring a lot of attention to your magazine. Man up. Admit it. Move on.
