Are you shocked? Because I certainly am. When one thinks of adjectives to describe Kim Kardashian, I’m pretty sure “respectable” isn’t one that comes up too terribly often. I think when the thing that launches your career is performing oral sex on a man who is famous because he has a sister who is famous for doing the best duet in the history of pop music, then, in general, respect isn’t really something that comes into the picture too easily. No, if I had to pick adjectives to describe Kim, I would probably pick conceited, vain, and self-important. Oh wait, those are synonyms, aren’t they? Ok, I’ll add selfish. Does that work?
But you guys! This isn’t about Kim’s faults! This is about how she did something that I think is pretty cool, something that I can really get behind. She made fun of herself! Can you believe it?!
A couple of days ago, Kim posted a blog entry titled “OK, I Do Not Look Cute Crying.” Which, of course, is one of the truest truths. Sadly, the text was a little short: “Ok, I have to admit I do not look cute crying! LOL! And I do cry a lot. These pics are so ugly I just had to share.” But she supplemented it with a gallery of photos of herself in tears, which you can see below, and she even linked to “more gorgeous crying pics” from Bossip. After the link, she even did a “LOL,” isn’t that wonderful?
In the past, I think little Kimmy would have cried over all the giggles we’ve been having over her sadface. I think she might have even tried to get some of the photos taken down. But she’s not! She’s laughing at herself, and I think that’s just such a great sign that she can do that. Do you think … could she have actually grown from everything? Is that possible?
Speaking of possible, I suppose it’s entirely possible that she’s trying to put on a brave face, and that really this little blog was put together while she was crying and licking up some melted ice cream off her laptop. She probably has a number of people telling her what to do to get people to like her again, and self-deprecating humor would be something on that list. So maybe she hasn’t grown. Maybe she’s just fooling me.
What do you guys think? Does this make you like Kim Kardashian just a teensy tiny little bit more, or are you going to just hate her forever? Either way, I totally understand.
