Say what you want about Kim Kardashian, but you can’t deny the woman who’s “famous for being famous” has built an ever expanding empire. The reality star recently spoke to V magazine and shared her thoughts on reality tv, comparing it to the rise of rap music in the early 90s.
“I think it’s fascinating, because it’s still entertainment, you know? It’s fun to see the progression of that idea. I don’t take offense to it at all. 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,” she told the magazine, adding that it’s not unlike the progression and acceptance of rap music.
“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,” she theorized for the magazine.
“I think reality shows are taking over that genre, but I think the draw to our show is that we are relatable … I think it’s just a new world with social media. The interaction I have with my fans and the access is so much fun to me. I love that connection,” she explained.
While she’s not a traditional ‘actress’, Kim Kardashian definitely wants to be remembered. She’s even determined to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
“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,” she said.
You go, Kim!
