When the now-famous Kim Kardashian nude Paper magazine photos first hit the web, public opinion was decidedly split.

While the Sir Mix-A-Lots of the world found no cause for complaint, other, more reserved types stated their belief that Kim was setting a bad example for young girls, her own daughter included.

Glee star Naya Rivera slammed Kim online, commenting, “You’re somebody’s mother,” on one of the pics.

While rumors that Kim wanted to pose nude before she gets pregnant again continue to circulate, until very recently, Mrs. Kardashian-West had not spoken out about the relationship between her roles as nude icon and married mom.

Yesterday, Kim was asked in an Australian radio interview how she would feel if her 1-year-old daughter, North West, decided to pose nude in 20 years. Her response is sure to piss off plenty of Kardashian kritics:


“I would support anything she wants to do,” Kim said. “But I don’t do anything to promote anyone else doing it – that’s not even what I’m trying to do.”

Kim went on to say that the pics made her feel “empowered,” after she “gained 500 pounds and looked like a huge slob” when she was pregnant.

Given her famous ego, we never thought we’d have to say this, but damn, go easy on yourself, Kim!

As for her comments about supporting “anything” North wants to do, well, Kim should know that statements like that often backfire. 

Kids have a way of finding the one thing you won’t support and doing it. In North’s case that would probably mean getting her PhD and taking a low-profile job as a research assistant, or something.
