Kim Kardashian West baffled by naked pictures outrage

Kim Kardashian West is "baffled" by outrage over her naked pictures.

The35-year-old singer - who often shares racy images on her Instagram page - could not believe the uproar one shot, which saw her pose completely naked with two black bars protecting her modesty, caused earlier this year.

She said: "I truly was baffled when people still cared. They have seen me naked 500 times. The censor bar literally was probably more covered than a bikini. I could not grasp how people were so outraged."

And Kim - who has daughter North, two and six-month-old son Saint with husband Kanye West - encouraged people to avoid her posts if they don't like them.

Speaking to Kara Swisher on Recode Decode, she said: "My personality has never been, 'I'm such a feminist and follow me and be naked!' If you are conservative and that's how you are comfortable, more power to you. I respect you. You don't have to look at what I do.

"If I like the photo, and I'm into it, I'll post it...I just think it looks good. I'm really not trying to cause a reaction.

"I have such a thick skin. I've been in the business for a longtime, and there's always been a lot of haters in the work that I do. People used to always say, 'Don't read the magazines. Don't pay attention,' and it was so hard. I used to say I didn't but I really still cared. I'm at a point where I really don't care so it doesn't affect me."

Despite making her name on a reality TV show, Kim insisted she is much more private these days.

She said: "Pre-marriage, pre-babies, the answer would have been everything was shareable. After, I would say I keep a good 30 percent to myself."
