Playing Kim Kardashian Defends Her Nude Selfie at Webby Awards With Five Epic Words

Kim Kardashian only needed five words to defend her selfie game.

The 35-year-old reality star accepted the Break the Internet prize at Monday night's Webby Awards in New York City, and chose her words wisely when addressing the audience. The Webbys only allowed five words for each award winner's acceptance speech, and Kim used her time onstage to defend the nude selfie she posted in March. "Nude selfies 'til I die," she declared.

When you're like I have nothing to wear LOL

Kim's husband, Kanye West, received the Webby for Artist of the Year award, and pre-taped his acceptance speech. "I can't stand short speeches," he proclaimed.

Prior to the Webbys, Kim admitted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she was struggling with what to say, given the word limit. "I've been texting all my funny friends like Chrissy Teigen, everyone I think is so funny, asking what my speech should be," she told Ellen. "Any ideas?"

The talk show host suggested, "Um... I thank Ellen Lee DeGeneres?"

Kim -- who announced last week that she reached her pre-baby weight -- flaunted her figure on the red carpet in a curve-hugging Vivenne Westwood black dress, and didn't even change out of her outfit when she hopped a private plane to Cannes, France.

While Kim did get some flack from several celebrities after posting her nude selfie, Raven-Symoné spoke to ET in defense of the mother-of-two. "She understands what her worth is, she understands what she brings to our society, and she [capitalizes] on it,” The View co-host touted. "We can’t live without the Kim Kardashian. She’s actually very empowering for the woman, because she knows how to brand herself."
