Nude selfies till I die.
That's Kim Kardashian's promise (or threat?) at the Webby Awards in New York on May 16, as she accepted the "Break the Internet" award. Acceptance speeches at the Webbys are limited to five words, and the reality star - married to equally shy rapper Kanye West - really got the most out of hers.
Unless you've been living under a rock (or purposely shielding your eyes for the sake of sanity; if that's the case, we don't blame you) Kardashian, 35, was embroiled in a controversy in March due to a naked Instagram selfie. "When you're like, I have nothing to wear LOL," she captioned the pic.
Though it was not a current image of the mother-of-two (it was actually taken a year ago before the birth of her son Saint), the picture drew disdain from a handful of famous personalities.
Chloe Grace Moretz took to Twitter, criticising Kardashian over the message she may be sending to young female followers.
"@KimKardashian I truly hope you realise how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than (their bodies)," the young actress wrote.
British TV personality Piers Morgan referenced West's financial debt, tweeting, "I know the old man's US$50 million in debt, Kim - but this is absurd. Want me to buy you some clothes?"
Of all the celebrities' reactions, my favourite jab came from Bette Midler.
"Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we've never seen, she's gonna have to swallow the camera," tweeted the 70-year-old comedienne.
Anyway, it's obvious that Kardashian remains undaunted despite her haters, as she vows to never stop with provocative photos, regardless of her age. Just imagine Kardashian on her deathbed, at the ripe old age of 90, requesting for her bejewelled smartphone so she could take one last nude selfie.
