Posing nude for Playboy‘s December issue has definitely meant a big fat paycheck for Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian, but the 27-year-old socialite claims she decided to appear on the magazine for reasons other than money.
Apparently, Kardashian signed on to do the naked photo shoot because she wants the young women of today to see what a normal body looks like.
“I did it because I’m not one of those stick-skinny girls you see. I felt like girls today need to see a normal body,” she told the New York Daily News at the Morgan 4 Ever Launch at Underbar.
On the magazine, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star can be seen baring her entire backside and a part of her chest, although sheets and jewelry are strategically placed over her body to make the photos less revealing.
Kim Kardashian also told the New York Daily News that is was her mother, Kris Kardashian, who strongly encouraged her to do the shoot for Playboy.
“My mom actually pushed me to do it! I think she’s living vicariously through me a little bit,” she said.
Stepdad Bruce Jenner, who also appears on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, was present during Kardashian’s Playboy photo shoot. The 58-year-old former Olympian said that he was against the shoot in the beginning, but changed his mind when he saw that it was being done in a “tasteful” manner.
“I went and watched Kim do her shoot for the magazine cover,” Jenner told FOX News’ Pop Tarts recently. “I voted against her doing it. But we got through it and it turned out to be very tasteful. It’s a huge honor for Kim and she is a very beautiful woman. But, of course, as a father it is very strange and disturbing to see your daughter doing something like that.”
Fans can see more of Kim Kardashian and her family by tuning to Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which was recently renewed for a second season.
