'W' Magazine Responds to Kim Kardashian's Photo Shoot Criticism
Kim Kardashian had a negative reaction when she saw the final product of her W Magazine photo shoot that was caught on tape by her show Kourtney and Kim Take New York. And now W Magazine is responding to Kim's criticism of the shoot.
“I’m more naked here than I was in my Playboy,” Kim said on the show while crying to Kourtney Kardashian and Khloé Kardashian Odom. “I feel so taken advantage of. I’ve definitely learned my lesson. I’m never taking my clothes off again, even if it’s for Vogue.”
In an e-mail statement to New York Magazine's The Cut, a W magazine spokesperson explains how the photo shoot was art.
"In keeping in line with the theme of W Magazine’s November Art Issue, Kim Kardashian’s cover was conceived as an artistic collaboration with well-known artist Barbara Kruger, and was a meditation on the influence that reality TV has on contemporary culture," the statement reads.
"The inside portfolio documented the career and power of Kim Kardashian as a work of art, using the language of artists like Jeff Koons (see Rabbit) and Gilbert & George (see The Singing Sculpture)."
Well then, that explains that.
