Kris didn't address the most controversial image of all from the "artistic" Interview shoot - that being the able-bodied Kylie sitting in a wheelchair; she instead focussed on the photo showcasing her youngest's bared behind.
Speaking on SiriusXM’s Conversations with Maria Menounos, the 60-year-old said: "It's almost like she's doll-like. And she's wild, and this is how she expresses herself. So I think it's great... I think she could have covered her bum a little bit more right there. But I saw the way the hair and the latex and the all that…it's just so cool... The pictures are insane. This is so Kylie, by the way. Steven Klein shot this, he is so iconic and amazing. And I love that my girls get to work with the most fantastic photographers in the world. It's such a great experience and it's truly remarkable," Kris continued. "But I think that when they're doing this, it's just such a private photo shoot. And she really gets to work with him and express herself. And this is what she loves. I think it's great. I think they're beautiful and artistic."

Interview have since responded to the backlash in this statement via E! News: "At Interview, we are proud of our tradition of working with great artists and empowering them to realise their distinct and often bold visions. The Kylie Jenner cover by Steven Klein, which references the British artist Allen Jones, is a part of this tradition, placing Kylie in a variety of positions of power and control and exploring her image as an object of vast media scrutiny. Throughout the Art Issue, we celebrate a variety of women who are both the creators and subjects of their artistic work, and the Kylie feature aims to unpack Kylie's status as both engineer of her image and object of attention"
Do you agree with any of the above statements?
