Ever wondered how Kim K’s famous and/or what she does to be such a house hold name? Well Kim recently opened up about her reality tv show fame and defended it, even comparing it to rap. Click below to read the interview she did with V Magazine.
Kim K’s rise to fame has set a new standard when it comes to Reality TV stars. The public’s interest in her star studded personal life and her family has skyrocketed her to international super stardom and has made her one of the highest paid faces on television.
In a recent interview with V Magazine, when asked for her thoughts on people who believe she’s just famous for being famous, Kim defended reality show TV while comparing it to the rise of rap music:
I’m not naïve to the fact that I’m not a singer or an actress or anything like that. I’ve never claimed to be anything that I’m not. I think [reality] is still a new form of entertainment that was kind of an unexpected thing.
“It reminds me of rap music. When rap music first came out, people were like, We don’t understand this, what is this, it’s just a fad. But rap music is definitely here to stay, and I think reality shows have proven they are as well. But when something is newer, people don’t really understand it.
Reality TV vs Rap must be a common table topic for Kimye.
In the same interview, she expressed her desire to be on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after there was some big controversy last year surrounding whether or not reality stars should be able to obtain one.
I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold.
If Reality TV remains prominent on television for the next 10 years, The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce may very well start handing out stars to the Kardashians and other prominent reality tv stars. Meanwhile, legendary actresses like Lucille Ball will be turning in their graves…
