Here recently, Kim Kardashian did an interview all about Twitter and being a presence on the internet. Seriously, that’s what the whole thing is about. And to be fair, Khloe was a big part of the interview as well, but, being the best Kardashian, the things she said were actually understandable (“I’ve never had a Google alert; I think they are so toxic”). Kim’s quotes, however, just made me laugh and laugh. Let’s check some of those quotes out, all right?
On Google alerts: I used to [have one], and I got rid of my old e-mail address, and they were on there. It was the big question in my mind: Do I add my Google alert to my new e-mail? I haven’t, and I just feel I have peace of mind now. I would look at it all day long. It doesn’t consume me. I hardly look on the Internet like I used to.
The internet helped Kim be famous: I think a lot of our fanbase, and a lot of our connection with people is Internet-based. I think that the Internet has brought on a different kind of celebrity. We are very well aware of who we are, and what our place is. We are so active on Twitter, on our Facebook pages, we are writing back, we are connecting. We enjoy it.
Why she got a Twitter account: Ryan Seacrest was like, “You’ve got to get on Twitter. Just try it. Please.” So I went to Mexico, and got the craziest sunburn. I tweeted a picture of it, and within an hour it was on CNN in Mexico. I was like, “I don’t understand this,” but I’ve been addicted ever since.
But has she ever deleted a tweet? One time I wrote, “F-ck yeah!” and all my younger fans were like, “What are you turning into?” So I deleted it.
On Instagram: I wrote an e-mail about my profile, saying, “Be warned, I’ll probably be posting some slutty pictures.” But I haven’t yet. I think Instagram is more artsy. Twitpics are all about glitz and glam.
On Twitter haters: I love writing them back. People will write me, “My phone battery lasts longer than Kim Kardashian’s marriage,” and I’ll write back, “Oh, which phone is that?” When people are so stupid, you just have to have fun with it. Someone [without a profile photo] will say I’m fat, or a hairy Armenian, and I’ll write back, “Oh, that egg picture of yours is so gorgeous.”
I guess it just blows my mind that Kim has this much to say about herself. I know it shouldn’t, but it does. And sure, it’s an interview, and she was being asked these kinds of questions, but she actually said “it was the big question in my mind: do I add my Google alert to my new e-mail?” At one point in time, a serious issue in Kim Kardashian’s life was a Google alert. And she’s actually spent time considering how “Instagram is more artsy” while “Twitpics are all about glitz and glam.” I mean, honestly.
And here’s a bit of bonus news for all you fans of the Kardashian family music videos: there’s a new one on the way! It’s a video of the classic “Hypnotize” by the Notorious B.I.G. Can’t wait!
