Despite all the improbable conspiracy theories that the Internet cooked up, Kim Kardashian's reason for posing nude in our "Break the Internet" issue is simple: "I did it for me," she told Australia's The Project. She continues:

"I looked back at a clip of Keeping Up with the Kardashians last season and I was really heavily pregnant, I was about eight months pregnant, and I looked at my sisters and said, 'You guys, when I feel like I have my body back, I'm doing a nude shoot.'"

"For me, when I got the opportunity to work with the photographer Jean-Paul Goude, I was so honored and excited to work with him and for me that was something I knew I wanted to do make myself feel confident. As a role model I'm not saying anyone else should do that, but for me it was an art project and it taught me to do what you want to do." she said.

She then goes on to teach one of the hosts of the Australian talk show how to balance a glass on his butt and he quickly learns that Kim Kardashian's preternatural champagne pouring skills aren't an easy thing to master. Take notes! Watch the rest of the clip, here.
