Kim Kardashian took her "talents" Down Under on Tuesday, where she helped a TV host balance a champagne glass on his butt. It did not go so well, but it made for some very amusing evening television.
The reality star, who is in Australia to promote her new perfume, appeared on "The Project," a nightly TV show, where she was, of course, asked about her outrageous nude photo shoot for PAPER magazine. The Winter 2014 issue features two different covers, one with Kardashian’s bare bottom on display, and another in which she balances a champagne glass on her booty. The pictures inside the magazine feature Kardashian completely naked, and she opened up on the chatfest about stripping down for famed photographer Jean-Paul Goude.
Pointing out that Goude is often known for nude shoots, Kardashian said, "I was so honored and excited to work with him because he is a legend, and for me, that was something I knew I wanted to do to make myself feel confident." She noted she wasn't trying to be a "role model," or that others should do it, too, "but for me, I looked at it as this was an art project for me, this was something that was going to make me feel confident and make me feel good, and it taught me to do what you want to do." She went on, "Everyone should do what they're comfortable with. 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."
Co-host Rove McManus unabashedly admitted he did indeed like the provocative pictures, and asked, "Can you actually balance a champagne glass on your derriere? Is it all Photoshopped?" Kardashian replied, "My back hurt for about a week after that shoot. I used muscles… [Goude] has an art of posing you and it was definitely not comfortable, and things were falling all over the place."
McManus then produced a few champagne glasses, and asked if Kardashian could re-create the pose, or at least show him how to do it. She, not surprisingly, opted for the latter, which led to the hilarious sight of Rover bending over and sticking out his behind as Kardashian tried to make the glass stay upright on his butt. "It's gonna break," exclaimed Kardashian, "because you don’t have as big a butt as I do!"
