LAST WEEK, when there were no more New Jersey Nets to divorce, no more sex tapes to leak, and no more rappers to marry, Kim Kardashian did what any self-respecting reality star would do.
She got naked.
And this wasn’t ordinary nakedness. No, this was the kind of naked that requires a misspelling of the word in order to grasp the full extent of it. That’s right. She was nekked with two Ks and an E.
She was so nekked in fact, that Paper magazine, the publication that put Kardasian’s ample bare bottom on its cover, emblazoned the photograph with the words, “Break the Internet.”
The pictures, which also included full frontal nudity, didn’t quite break the Net. But in the words of one of my colleagues, they sure put a big crack in it.
I’m not surprised, though. Kardashian’s been showing her butt for years. We’ve all seen it in various stages of undress, and this nude photo shoot was really just the next step in the progression.
That leads me to the obvious question: If all of us could see this coming, why couldn’t Kanye West? I mean, you know, I can understand him liking the chick, and all. I can even respect his decision to marry her.
