Kim Kardashian‘s been plenty vocal about how much she loves the result of her nude Paper magazine photo shoot – and confirms it’s something she had been planning ever since her days as an expectant mom.

At Thursday night’s SVEDKA Vodka-sponsored Paper magazine Break the Internet event with DKNY during Art Basel in Miami, Kardashian, 34, cited an old Keeping Up with the Kardashians episode when she was pregnant and “felt 500 lbs.”

In the episode, Kim says she told her sisters that she couldn’t wait to get back into shape and that when she did, she planned to do a nude photo shoot. As the world now knows, Kardashian made good on her promise (threat?) and told the magazine’s team, “I’m really happy I did it with Paper.”

Kim also admitted to checking out the numerous memes of her much-publicized booty-shot.

The star told co-founders Kim Hastreiter and David Hershkovits, “I’ve seen them all – even the Kripsy Kreme one!”

Wearing a black cropped top and long, black pencil skirt, Kardashian also commented on the apropos issue title, telling Editorial Director Mickey Boardman, “The line ‘Break the Internet’ was genius.”

Kardashian was certainly not the only one pleased with the outcome of the pictures. The magazine’s creative director, Drew Elliott (who was on-hand in Paris for the photo shoot), said the response to the piece was, “far beyond what we thought it would be.”

“We knew it was going to get a lot of press attention, and we knew people would love it on the internet, but we didn’t know they would adopt it and turn it into meme culture,” he added.

He also said that Kardashian was a “total, total, total professional,” and that she had apologized profusely for being just five minutes late on the day of the shoot.
