A photo of Canadian figure skater Kaetlyn Osmond on the Globe and Mail's front page sparked outrage on March 18, but the 17-year-old doesn't see what all the fuss is about.

The photo, which showed the teen lifting her leg in a revealing crotch shot position, prompted Globe and Mail public editor Sylvia Stead to blast the paper on Twitter.

"Photo on #globeandmail front today is not acceptable in my view & readers," she wrote.

But Osmond told Maurie Sherman of the Roz & Mocha Show on KiSS 92.5 Toronto that she didn't consider the photo to be inappropriate. In fact, she considered it an honour.

"When I first saw the picture I was thinking 'oh cool, it's the first time I've ever gotten on the cover of a newspaper' and I was just really excited about it," said Osmond.

Listen to the full interview below:

Osmond also revealed: "Our skirts go flying all the time so we're used to it so we don't find it that offensive."
