*The editor of Paper Magazine has confirmed that Kim Kardashian’s naked photos were indeed retouched…however, her butt was left alone.
“Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level, but what I will say, is that is her butt. It is not padded. It is not augmented. That is all really her,” the magazine’s editor, Mickey Boardman, told Us Weekly. “But, yes, there was retouching to clean things up and make things look amazing. That’s what retouching is. It’s not building an a– that isn’t there or taking 50 pounds off the waist.”
Kardashian’s naked butt and full frontal photos made a huge splash online Wednesday in an attempt by the magazine to “break the internet.” Fans immediately began to make their own memes of Kim K.’s booty pic, as well as speculate about whether the pictures were photoshopped.
