Kim Kardashian's Butt: Paper Magazine Cover 'Is All Really Her,' But Was 'Airbrushed on Some Level'

Since Kim Kardashian West‘s infamous Paper magazine cover came out yesterday, many have wondered if it underwent any major photoshopping – and we have the answers!

Mickey “Mr. Mickey” Boardman spoke with Us Weekly and gave some very specific answers about the 34-year-old reality star’s booty shot.

“Every cover of every magazine is airbrushed on some level,” Mickey said. “But what I will say, is that is her butt. It is not padded. It is not augmented. That is all really her. But, yes, there was retouching to clean things up and make things look amazing,” he admitted. “That’s what retouching is. It’s not building an ass that isn’t there or taking 50 pounds off the waist.”

And yes, Kim was “oiled up” by makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic, who had the honor of “rubbing the oil all over her.”

Plans also changed when Kim got to the studio. “There was some ass-related thing that was proposed but we weren’t sure what was going to happen/ We were really just planning on recreating the [famous] champagne shot…but she came in and was like, ‘Let’s, you know, let’s just go there!’… She’s not shy about taking her clothes off, and the next thing [we knew], magic was happening.”

    People always comment on her waist, but they also shrunk down her head and elongated her arms and torso. She’s not a particularly tall woman to have those proportions.

  • Jess

    Bull. They obviously took a lot off her waist. Her waist to hip ratio is ridiculous and incredibly unrealistic.

  • jo

    Yup, her arms are not nearly that skinny. In the picture, they look almost as skinny as the teeny Victoria Secret models’ arms.

  • ponderingpath

    What B.S.- the ass may be hers but that WAIST AIN’T; that waist has obviously been shaved a couple of inches on both sides. Stop playing the public for stupid. What kind of woman (or rather WHAT KIND OF MAN) WOULD want that type of trash for a wife?

  • ponderingpath

    Thank you Jess: I guess magazine editors don’t figure that most of us DO know something about the human anatomy. Her photo makes here look like a disfigured freak.

  • Claire

    You should delete this photo, it’s really disgusting!

  • FerCat

    And that thing around her neck and gloves make it a lot easier to resize her head, extend the neck and arms.

  • Deanne

    Wow, do these people really think we’re that stupid? Kim posts pictures of herself, the paps release tons of pictures of her, etc. all the time. We know what she looks like. We know that is not her real back or arms or waist. We also know that they had to do some major airbrushing to hide the cellulite on her rear end.
    I swear that this family lives in their own little bubble of delusion and actually believes the press they put out about themselves.
    God, I can’t wait until they go away.

    Mickey should put his money where his mouth is and release the un-retouched photos of Kim so that we can see if he’s telling the truth or not.

  • Gotitbutsmh

    Keep it real, the pic is photoshopped on every level.

  • jo

    Oh my, that’s a really good point. Makes me wonder exactly how much photoshopping they did. It probably cost more than any other part of the shoot (makeup, hair, jewelry, etc).

  • Danielle

    I love how he say’s “She’s not shy about taking her clothes off.” Umm no sh*t!!
