Kim Kardashian is breaking her silence after her Fulani braids, also called cornrows, started a controversy. Some went to the extent of saying she was adhering to culture appropriation.

The 37-year-old is finally addressing the backlash her hairstyle for the recent MTV Movie & TV Awards earned. In an interview with Bustle during the opening of her KKW Beauty pop-up shop in Los Angeles, Kardashian set the record straight with her chosen 'do for the event.

"I actually did that look because North said she wanted braids and asked if I would do them with her. So we braided her hair and then we braided my hair," she explained.
