We always knew the internet would win in the end… Kim Kardashian’s sultry Paper magazine cover has just become the centre of a train of hilarious memes.
Our jaws have not dropped to the floor that fast since those Nick Jonas crotch-grabbing photos made their rounds on the internet.
Kim Kardashian, admittedly, never fails to keep us entertained, recently appearing in a sexy and incredibly oily photo shoot for Paper magazine, gracing one of the covers with her bare bum. Hey, it’s one of the world’s most famous bottoms — she has a right to show it off.
In an attempt to “break the Internet,” Paper mag decided to tell a story through Kardashian of a posh lady who had a talent for pouring champagne over her shoulder into a glass on her derriere and whose gown accidentally slipped right off — thereby exposing an enviable behind — since it turned out she was covered in baby oil from head to toe… A tragic tale. We’re kidding, but that does seem like the storyline in this photo shoot. The real inspiration behind the shoot was slightly different.
“For our winter issue, we gave ourselves one assignment: Break The Internet. There is no other person that we can think of who is up to the task than one Kim Kardashian West. A pop culture fascination able to generate headlines just by leaving her house, Kim is what makes the web tick,” Paper magazine wrote on its website.
“We tapped legendary French photographer Jean-Paul Goude to recreate his iconic ‘Champagne Incident’ shot and all we can say about the images inside, which we’ll be releasing on Thursday, is…holy f**king sh*t. This issue has got so much more in store so be sure to check back next week.”
Boom! We have to admit the cover is pretty darn sexy. It’s a fact. Whatever you may think of Kardashian, you cannot deny the woman knows how to work the camera and her curves. Don’t hate, people. Appreciate.
We must admit, though, our favourite part about this cover is the vast array of memes it has inspired. Paper magazine may not have been able to break the internet, but it sure has successfully spurred it on to make fun of Kim. Some of these have us rolling on the floor with laughter. The great wide Web is a magical place.
Kim Kardashian looks so much like a centaur in Paper Magazine, I figured I'd take it one step further. pic.twitter.com/Sh70yV43gE
