With all the attention the naked photos are getting, it's easy to forget that there was another photo from Kim Kardashian's Paper magazine shoot, which was actually pretty cool.
In the shot, the 34-year-old reality star balances a champagne glass on her backside as she recreates an iconic photo the same photographer shot back in 1976, entitled "The Champagne Incident."
While it's pretty safe to assume that the champagne is Photoshopped, Kim proved that she really was balancing that glass on her butt, which is a pretty impressive task in and of itself - not that we tried, but...all right, fine, we tried and it's hard!
"My back hurt for about a week after that shoot. He [the photographer] has an art of posing you and it was definitely not comfortable...and things were falling all over the place," she joked, during her appearance on Australia's The Project on Tuesday night.
She also said that the controversial photos actually made her feel good about herself. "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," she explained.
"I'm never one to preach," she continues. "But I felt really positive and really good about myself. I like the photos, I did it for me, I hope other people like them."
Love 'em or hate 'em, they certainly got people talking!
