WEEKLY RANT: The Kardashians

MTV; YOU PAID $40 MILLION FOR THIS?!

If you like the Kardashians then navigate away from this post, and indeed my blog, and never return here again.

Ahh the Kardashians, the family which seems to have completely reaped every shred of benefit which they could off a sex tape, whilst also losing every shred of self-respect along the way. This, teamed with many publicity stunts which never keeps them out of the news means that it is very awkward when an older relative asks you how they became famous.

Now the ‘main’ Kardashian is Kim. The one that’s in the sex tape. Now, I’ve got to hand it to her, she is a great businesswoman. She seems to have knack for making money from no talent whatsoever. She is the leader of this new breed of celebrity who are famous, just for fame’s sake. And this really annoys me. She and her stupid family have no discernible talent at all, yet they’ve just signed a deal for a new series of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” worth $40 million. This is mind-boggling. Firstly, this means that people actually watch that rubbish. REALLY?! This kind of thing really makes me wish for some sort of apocalypse. I no longer have faith in the human race. And secondly, it pains me that there’s some actually talented people out there who aren’t getting their shot at fame and fortune because of an idiotic family who want to make a quick buck.

These people anthropomorphise everything which is wrong with the world today; they’re superficial, shallow, self-centred and stupid. And I just want to give some credit to the guy that hacked into Kim Kardashian’s IMDB page and changed her bio to something much, much more accurate.

“Kim Kardashian is emblematic of the shallowness of American culture in the first two decades of the new millennium. While some cultural critics call her the prime avatar of the “famous for being famous” faux celebrity crowd.”

He or she then went on to say:

” That the women’s fame rests on the February 2007 “leaking” of a four-year-old home sex (for which she ultimately received $5 million from Vivid Entertainment) is an apt metaphor for socio-economic-cultural malaise in Washington and the country beyond, where everything seems to be run by amoral prostitutes in bed with each other and merely out for a buck.”

I could not have put that better myself. I just want to say thank you to whoever wrote that, as it has restored my faith in the human race.

Now I’d like to get onto the whole Kanye West/Kim Kardashian saga (No, not ‘Kimye’ – what are you 5 years old?). KANYE WEST, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! Now President Barack Obama described Kanye West as “A jackass, a talented jackass, but still a jackass.” I completely agree with him. Yes he can be funny, and yes he’s a great rapper, but really? Dating a Kardashian? And not only that but thinking of marrying her?! She just ended a marriage after 72 days. Come on, I bet Kanye has had longer concerts. *Now I ain’t sayin’ she a gold digger*

I don’t think I’d hate these “god damn hoes” (as Mr West would put it) if they just did their own thing and stayed out of my conciousness. But no, they continue to attention seek and everywhere I look, whether it be Twitter or flicking through television channels, they’re always there! I don’t know whether or not I’ve made this clear, BUT I DON’T CARE ABOUT YOUR STUPID LIVES. I could not care less whether Kim just got divorced or whether that mother who is supposed to be responsible for them has had a lip job! Can I just say, that ‘K’ isn’t even a very good letter, and I certainly wouldn’t name most of my children beginning with it.

The Kardashians add nothing to society and I’m glad that people like Jonah Hill and Jon Hamm are coming out and saying that people like this are just stupid, and this glorification of idiocy is precisely what is wrong with the western world today. How can people complain about the education system in America when the Kardashians are role models for so many teenage girls? These girls see these uneducated, stupid, selfish people who are rich, and therefore they ask the question “Why should I educate myself?” Now I don’t want to go too deep into the problem here, but this family is not only really pissing me off, but destroying the very moral fibre of our society.
