Well, then. While Kim Kardashian dropping her clothes and baring her naked body (full frontal!) nearly broke the Internet on Wednesday, Nov. 12, her interview in Paper magazine was also published, providing a behind-the-scenes, beyond-the-body look at the reality star.
“You just have to not care,” Kardashian, 34, told the mag in its Winter 2014 issue. “You just have to say, ‘This is our life, and it is what it is.'”
The star’s comments came after Kardashian recalled taking her 16-month-old daughter North West to a pumpkin patch earlier that day with Kanye West. “I couldn’t really pick out our pumpkins, and [North] couldn’t really enjoy it,” the world-famous mother of one said of being swarmed by paparazzi.
She mused: “All my friends tell me the world could be coming to an end, and I’m always so calm.”
Indeed, a source close to Kardashian told Us Weekly that the star was unfazed by Naya Rivera‘s scathing “but… you’re someone’s mother” comment, after her first butt-baring naked shot dropped Tuesday, Nov. 11. “Kim doesn’t care, she just thinks it’s funny,” the insider told Us.
This persona was something Kardashian mastered after her 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, which she also addressed with Paper. “It’s just one of those life lessons that you have to learn,” she reflected, “and it’s okay.”
Life lessons like Humphries, after all, most likely remain etched in Kardashian’s mind, since she claimed during the interview that she has a visual memory. While talking about her upcoming book, Selfish (a compilation of selfies to be released in spring 2015), the star complained about the publishing company’s editorial process.
“The book company edited them, and I was like, ‘Wait a minute! There are like 300 here that you’re not adding!'” she recalled. It was then noted to Kardashian that it was surprising that she could differentiate the “near-identical” images of herself.
The reality star’s response was simple: “I know what I wore, what accessories I wore, where I was, who I was with,” she told Paper. “I remember everything.”
