December 31, 2012... in the wee hours of the morning, the news broke onstage in Jersey and across the world on Twitter... Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would be having a baby.
I didn't learn until a few hours later... but the information caused an immediate twist in my stomach, and a roll of my eyes. You see... the whole Kim/Kanye relationship... actually, the whole Kardashian fame, concerns me. Not for them... but for our society.
Let's take it back to the beginning. In 2007, no one knew who Kim Kardashian was... nor did anyone care. At the time, she was just a celebrity stylist who became friends with another "famous for being famous" girl by the name of Paris Hilton. Then, an "intimate" tape of Kim K. and a mildly famous rapper named Ray J was "leaked." That girl in the video, the one with the larger than life derriere, became a top headline. So, is it a coincidence that Kim and Paris both became household names in the same fashion? I digress...
Not long after... the E! Network decided to give this "sex tape girl" her own reality series, with her family... and the group was launched into stardom. Does anyone else see something VERY WRONG with this picture? Does anyone else see the twisted message this is sending young girls all over the world?
But, I can't blame the Kardashian clan for this... I can only blame our society. We are the ones watching this family's reality show... buying Kim's products in stores. If anything, I COMMEND this family for making a boatload on their 5 minutes of fame. My question to all of you though... is, WHY???
