I'm not sure if Kim "broke the internet" last night... but she caused a stir with her latest, provocative cover with PAPER magazine. There's been points made, criticizing Kim for her booty baring because she's a mother and a wife now but are those valid? Because someone becomes a mother and a wife does that mean they should all of a sudden turn conservative and trade in their sex appeal? Absolutely not. In defense of Mrs. Kim Kardashian West, this is who she has always been, the beat face, the Kardashian Kollections, the Hermes bags, the selfies, and the vixen-esque half nude photo shoots, that's her life. She's a business, a brand, a mogul even? Kim is pretty much a vixen with a unbeatable business plan. An intellectual force... not so much.
I'm wondering if some of us expect something else from her because she is specifically Kanye West's wife? For those who have followed his career from the beginning, he has be known to be thought provoking and intensely opinionated, ranting his face off over his dilemmas with society. Meanwhile, here's Kim just snapping selfies and shoving her Hollywood video game down your throat. The compatibility of their matrimony has left some of us puzzled.
When I originally saw the cover my initial thoughts were: Grrr this is boring! How many more times will we see this girl's pumpkin booty. What else does she have to offer?! I think the image of her ass is practically branded into my brain.
But, we are talking about the spawn of reality TV fame here, this is all she has offered from the beginning of her career which commenced after a sex tape, a playboy spread and a show on E!. It would be nice if powerful content came with booty shots but it's not who she is. It would be nice if with all the power that she has to #breaktheinternet she shared something more compelling but it's not who she is and we should allow that.
HOWEVER... I, personally, am not interested or intrigued. I love a good beat face, some Balmain and a juicy booty but I'm good on that. There is enough of this being served on Instagram and almost every other social network. There's an over-saturation of booty in the market! "booty booty booty booty rockin' everywhere, literally. As much as I commend Kim for being herself, with more declaration, I pray that we can even the scale of representation when it comes to my voluptuous ladies. Please let there be more women with curvaceous bodies in the spotlight whose sex appeal is just as captivating as their expressions and the words coming out of their mouths. Variety is always nice.
Nevertheless, I'm proclaiming today that my interest in the Kardashian family has dwindled down to 0 as simultaneously Khloe Kardashian is showing her ass on Instagram.
Wake me up when there's something innovative happening.
