(Newser) Paper has a message on its Winter 2014 cover: "Break the Internet, Kim Kardashian." And the magazine basically accomplished its mission, as the Internet is all aflutter over the accompanying photo, which featured Kim balancing a glass of champagne on her famous rear end. (It's a re-creation of a French photographer's iconic shot.) There's also a picture of her bare behind, which definitely got people talking: Bossip refers to her "gargantuan greased-up glutes," while the Daily Beast calls her butt "shiny" and "bounteous." Click to see the champagne pic.

Why did Kim do it? Source tell TMZ that she's telling friends and family she wanted to show off her body ... because she and Kanye West are about to start trying for Baby No. 2 (South West?). Us rounds up the best memes and reactions to the pictures, including one picture comparing Kim's shiny butt to a glazed doughnut. But not everyone was amused by the photo of her bare behind: Glee star Naya Rivera apparently commented on Kim's Instagrammed version of it, "I normally don't. But...you're someone's mother..." Rivera hasn't actually confirmed the comment is from her, Gawker reports. Click to see the picture she seemingly took issue with.
