In a new post on her website, the businesswoman explained her intention behind the costume. She also apologized if it hurt anyone’s feelings.
“Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend,” Kim wrote to her fans. “I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone. When I was creating the costume, I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire.”
She continued, “I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists. For me, it’s always about love and respect. I loved that Kourtney was Michael Jackson or one of her costumes, and that my son was Axl Rose. We don’t see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect— it’s that simple!”
Kim’s costume was inspired by what Aaliyah wore in her “Try Again” music video.
