Before Kim Kardashian’s controversial nude Paper Magazine cover, made its rounds of the internet, she was first featured in another controversial magazine cover earlier this year. Kim’s appearance with her husband Kanye West on the April issue of VOGUE magazine has been the source of a lot of criticism both for the couple and the magazine.
During an interview with former CNN correspondent Alina Cho, she said…
I think if we just remain deeply tasteful and just put deeply tasteful people on the cover, it would be a rather boring magazine!
The first celebrity that I put on the cover of Vogue was Madonna, and that was considered completely controversial at the time, too.
She said that nobody remembers the uproar about the Madonna cover but the move generated a buzz much like Kimye on account of Madonna’s image as a controversial figure. She stated further that the magazine should reflect what is going on in present day culture because at the end of the day, what’s important is that the magazine gets talked about.
