Kim Kardashian's Bottom

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 



I’m not a fan of reality star Kim Kardashian but the photograph featuring her behind got me really interested.
 
The photoshoot with Jean-Paul Goude for indie mag Paper and which appeared last month had been described by MailOnline's US Editor at Large Piers Morgan as one that will be “forever etched in the memory”.
 
I am not at all surprised that it got a lot of other people interested too.
 
After the photo’s publication, social media users created mock-ups of the image, from centaurs to peaches and doughnuts to docking stations.
 



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
There’s a lesson here for us. Print may be traditional but it can still make us sit up and pay attention. This is in spite of the overwhelming influence of the digital revolution.
 
“That Kim Kardashian can ‘break the internet’ with a print magazine cover (as opposed to, say, an Instagram) is perhaps the biggest coup of all,” wrote Time.
 
“A magazine is relevant again because the internet is talking about it – how ironic is that?” wrote Lauren Tuck, on Yahoo Style.
 
Anyway, I love her bottom. Honest, I really do!
 
Liverpool earned a wee bit of respite. The team who were bloodied in the Champions League and heartrendingly humiliated in the EPL top flight managed to give us some hope when they set up a League Cup semi-final meeting with Chelsea.
 
The Reds had beaten Bournemouth 3-1 on Wednesday. Our goals came from Raheem Sterling (20, 51) and Lazar Markovic (27) and the opponents replied through Dan Gosling in the fifty-seventh minute.
