Kim Kardashian bares butt to "Break the Internet"

Well, if you want to try and "break the Internet," this would be the way to do it.

Paper magazine released two cover photos Tuesday with Kim Kardashian (and her famous backside) front and center for its winter issue.

In one image, the reality TV star has her back to the camera and her bare butt on full, oiled-up display. In the other, which you can see below, she's clad in a black dress and recreating French photographer Jean-Paul Goude's "Champagne Incident" image.

Kardashian shared both covers with her fans on social media and joked about the "talent" she displayed in the shoot.

Paper, for its part, explained it put Kardashian on the cover with a very specific goal in mind.

"For our winter issue, we gave ourselves one assignment: Break The Internet," the magazine said. There is no other person that we can think of who is up to the task than one Kim Kardashian West. A pop culture fascination able to generate headlines just by leaving her house, Kim is what makes the web tick."

At least one fellow star wasn't on board with the racy photos. Per Us Weekly, Naya Rivera left a comment on Kardashian's Instagram page that said, "I normally don't.'re someone's mother..."

Paper magazine's winter issue will be released Thursday.
