Kim (36) posted the image to Instagram on Monday with just two black bars protecting her modesty and came under fire from several high profile celebs for doing so.

Bette Midler tweeted, "Kim Kardashian tweeted a nude selfie today. If Kim wants us to see a part of her we’ve never seen, she’s gonna have to swallow the camera.” Also Piers Morgan and Chloe Grace Moretz voiced their disapproval.

Popstar Pink also wrote a lengthy Instagram post which did not directly mention Kim but praised women who use " their brains, their strength, their work ethic, their talent, the "magic" that they were born with" in life rather than their bodies.

In the furore, Kim's husband Kanye West's former flame Amber Rose came out in support of Kim.

She posted to Instagram, "Damn Pink we were all born naked society sexualizes our breast and bodies. If a grown mother of 2 is comfortable with her body and wants to show it off that's none of ur business or anyone else's.

"Now, if u wanna talk to kids and be a mentor to young teens, tell them to go to school and to not use their bodies to get ahead?! I'm all for it! But please as a grown woman let another grown woman live as she wishes. That's our problem! We're so quick to down each other instead of uplifting!"

In an interview with ABC's Nightline, Rose (29) explained why she defended Kim.

“I thought she looked beautiful,” she said. “I think she’s a great mom and I’m gonna stick up for Kim. People think Kim and I are archenemies, and we’re really not. We literally text each other all the time. We’re very positive toward each other.”

Both women have young children.  Rose is mum to three year old Sebastian while Kim has a daughter North (2) and son Saint (3 months).

“I know how hard it is to work out and try to get your body back but at the same time embracing the fact that your body does change as soon as you have a baby,” she said.

She went on to point out the double standard when it comes to men and women being naked.

“If any sexy guy posted a nude picture with a little black strip over his private area, everybody would be like, ‘Damn, he’s hot, he’s sexy, look at that body.  Oh, he’s a dad too?’” she said.

“I know what I’m talking about.  I know what I’m passionate about. But if I want to post a naked picture, or if I want to post a provocative picture, that’s exactly what I’m going to do, because I don’t have to make you happy. I make myself happy.”
