The shoot, which was titled Break The Internet, drew a barrage of criticism, but Kardashian is adamant the project was not based around gratuitous nudity.
During her appearance on Australian TV show ‘The Project’, she said, “I was so honoured and excited to work with (Goude) because he is a legend, and for me that was something I wanted to do to 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… I’m never one to preach, but I felt really positive and really good about myself. I love the photos, I did it for me, I hope other people like them.”
