Every now and then, Kim Kardashian West posts a selfie that comes close to breaking the Internet. Last year, it was her infamous black censor bar moment. And it was the caption that sparked a thousand memes: “When you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL.”
The 36-year-old star joined the ladies on The View Tuesday, where she braved the hot seat and was very candid about her personal life, especially when asked about her famous nude photo. And she took the time to explain the real reason behind it.
“I was actually pregnant in that photo,” she revealed. “I just found out I was pregnant and so I had to dye my hair back. I thought, ‘You know what this is my one last shot of a good photo before my body is done,’ so I took a pic.”
At the time Kim said that she was, “truly was baffled when people still cared. They have seen me naked 500 times,” but the star maintains that she is unapologetic when it comes to showing off her form.
While on The View, whe also spilled on her new makeup line, KKW Beauty, launching Wednesday June 21 with a collection of Kontour Kits, explaining that she’s super excited to be done with licensing deals as the owner of her own company.
“I’m so excited about it,” she shared. “I’ve worked so hard in the factories getting the formulas and the packaging. I’m the boss now.”
And in case you’re wondering where that leaves momager Kris Jenner, Kim explains, “Don’t worry she still gets her 10 percent.”


Embattled CEO Travis Kalanick officially resigned as Uber’s chief executive on Tuesday.
The news was first reported by The New York Times, which also indicated Kalanick’s decision to step down stemmed from a letter delivered to Kalanick from five of Uber’s major investors. According to the report, one of those investors included venture capital firm Benchmark, which has a seat on Uber’s board.
“I love Uber more than anything in the world and at this difficult moment in my personal life I have accepted the investors’ request to step aside so that Uber can go back to building rather than be distracted with another fight,” Kalanick said in a statement.
Although Kalanick stepped down as chief executive, he will remain on Uber’s board of directors.
Kalanick’s resignation is yet another dramatic development in a string of recent woes for Uber, which include workplace sexual harassment allegations by a former engineer this February, an investigation led by board member Arianna Huffington, and the departure of multiple executives. Uber’s problems escalated further last week when Kalanick then announced he would take a leave of absence. Day’s later, board member David Bonderman resigned over a sexist remark made during an all-hands meeting, which was first reported by Yahoo Finance.
For now, Uber will continue to be run by a 14-person committee that includes Liane Hornsey, the Chief Human Resources Officer who spoke at Uber’s all-hands meeting on Tuesday and newly-installed SVP of Business David Richter.
At this point, who runs Uber in the longer-term may be anyone’s guess. However the onus could fall on a chief operating officer, which the company has searched for since March and includes candidates such as former Walt Disney Co. COO Thomas Staags.


Prodigy, one half of the iconic rap duo Mobb Deep, has passed away at age 42.
The rapper's publicist released a statement on his death, citing complications stemming from his lifelong battle with sickle cell anemia.
It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep. Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family's privacy at this time.
Several prominent members of the Queens hip-hop community took to social media to share the news—and their condolences—on Tuesday afternoon, with Nas and his younger brother Jungle sharing posts on Instagram within minutes of one another.
Best known by the average fan as one half of the group responsible for the classic rap record, "Shook Ones Pt. II," Prodigy was part of countless New York posse cuts and a key figure in the "golden age" of rap in the mid-90s. 
Prodigy's battle with sickle cell anemia became public knowledge after it was brought up by 2Pac in their war of words in the mid-90's.
