Kim's 'Paper' Paycheck
You'll never guess how much 'Paper' magazine paid Kim Kardashian.
Break the Internet
Did naked Kim Kardashian really break the internet?
When it comes to keeping things mum from her mom, Kim Kardashian is an expert.

Speaking with Australia’s 2DayFM’s Breakfast Show on Wednesday, the reality star revealed she deliberately didn’t tell Kris Jenner about her infamous Paper magazine cover, in which she posed full frontal nude in the accompanying Jean-Paul Goude-shot spread.

So, why did she hide her NSFW project from her mama?

“She does [manage me], but I’m pretty in control of my career,” Kardashian, 34, said. “Everyone thinks she’s this mastermind and tells us what to do and where to go.”

“She was actually in Paris with me and I had dinner with her right after the shoot, and I’m pretty private about the stuff that I do until it comes out,” she continued. “So I told her I did a shoot and I was like ‘Just wait until it comes out — you’ll see!'”

According to Kardashian, she stripped down for the photo spread because she hoped it would “inspire women to put their best foot forward.”

She told the Herald Sun’s Confidential, “Self confidence is so important. Women need to believe in themselves, their abilities and knowledge. When this is paired with strong drive and hard work, it can take you a long way.”
