Kim Kardashian posted an ass selfie that sent twitter a’twittering. By “ass selfie” I mean that it was a photo she took of her impressive backside. She added “#nofilter” and made it seem like it was a very casual, “Oh just postin’ a photo of my ass, NBD.” Kanye then reweeted it, adding “HEADING HOME NOW”.
Well, it turns out there was a whole plan behind (no pun intended) the ass-selfie, if sources are to believed, and I believe them because it’s the Kardashians. Everything they do is carefully timed publicity. They were the ones to release the first photo of their kid, which they did via social media. Here’s what insiders told Life & Style about Kim’s selfie, via Daily Mail:
Insiders say after weeks of working hard on her figure, the mother-of-one wanted to make sure that her perfect angles were captured and in the very best possible light.
‘She took so many pictures and deleted them before she and Kanye decided on the one she posted,’ an insider tells the publication. ‘He had the ultimate say about Kim putting up the picture and decided which one he liked best.’
The whole stunt was apparently made to appear that Kim had just merely decided to post a snap from a photo shoot.[...] ‘Kim was dying to get her picture taken in a bathing suit,’ the insider told the magazine.
I freakin’ love this. It’s as complicated as Nicolas Cage’s plan to steal the Declaration of Independence. Pathetic.
