Kim Kardashian Strips Down Playboy Decision, "I'll Have Those Pictures Forever"

Reality star Kim Kardashian opens up about her controversial decision to do a Playboy photo spread in the new issue of Glamour.

According to Kardashian, the decision was motivated by a need to satisfy her own needs.

"It was an independence thing for me. I was always by the book, such the straight arrow when it came to pleasing my parents and being a good daughter. I felt like this was one decision that only I could make. And I think it looks great. I'll have those pictures forever." (Glamour)

Earlier this week, R&B singer Toni Braxton said she was considering doing a Playboy cover spread.

"Good morning everybody and happy 2011!!!! Whew we made it to see one more year! Let's make it a sexy year. :-*," she wrote Tuesday (January 4).

"New Year, New opportunities. So I have been considering taking up Playboy's offer to feature me on their cover this year. What you think?"

"I would love to pose with Hugh Hefner though. He's the sexiest guy I know over 30 ;-)"

"Of course it will be tastefully done :-) There are NOT talking that kind of spread! No Susie!!!! Just a lil T and A. They have asked me about 3 times before." (Toni Braxton's Twitter)

Last November, R&B singer Rihanna discussed her Playboy cover offer.

RiRi revealed to Angie Martinez that she's been offered to pose for Playboy several times, but turned the magazine down. "I got a few offers to do Playboy actually. They want to pay you to be naked on the cover," she said. "If I'm gonna take my clothes off, it has to be in a classy way and my will, not a check. I wouldn't take any money to do that." But she does enjoy walking around nude when she's in the privacy of her home. (Rap-Up)

In addition to working on a music career, Kardashian has been linked to Grammy-winning rapper Kanye West.

Kim Kardashian has opened up about her rumoured romance with Kanye West - insisting she is just 'having a lot of fun'. The 30-year-old has recently been spotted out with US rapper West, 33, but while she remained coy about their romance, her sister Khloe, 26, had a lot to say about it. Speaking at the People's Choice Awards on Wednesday, Kim told US entertainment show Extra: "I think I've just been having a lot of fun." Khloe added: "That's because they're boning!" Kim replied: "That came out of Khloe's mouth, not mine!" (Music Rooms)
