Kardashians in the Media

Recommended Posts


Kim posted videos on her Instagram from Thailand. Soft core strangeness.

http://www.celebitchy.com/358569/kim_kardashian_posts_some_ridiculous_ig_videos_in_thailand_what_is_she_up_to/

I heard a snippet of an interview with a former paparazzi photog that's written a book. I was driving & didn't catch the name of the woman who wrote the book, but she was discussing how certain celebs called the paps. She said that some celebs even get a percentage of the photos. She specifically mentioned Kim Kardashian getting 60%. Color me not surprised.

Well that explains how they afford their lifestyle.   60% of those photos adds up.

But you know who is more in the media right now?   The Cambridges.   Prince George had his first public engagement -- a playdate.  Sure the cameras were there, but it was just a little baby crawling around and playing with toys and annoying other kids, while being annoyed by them.   There were lots of pics of Kate holding him.   Not once did he have a "who the hell is this woman?" look on his face.  Yes he has a nanny.  BUt you can tell he spends time with his parents and is quite comfortable with them.  He was even pulling Kate's hair.  All I could think on seeing that is "Wow, if Kompass did that to Kim she would pitch a fit -- Kim not the baby."

I read the article and saw the pictures about the little Prince and his playdate.   The first thing that popped into my head was the different interaction between Kate and her child and Kim and her child.  It was like night and day.  I know exactly what you're talking about merylinkid. 

You can see the love jumping out at you when you see pictures of Kate and her baby.  When I see pictures of Kim and her baby, I do not see love.  I'm not saying Kim don't love her child, I 'm saying I don't see love between the two.

Prince George has on regular clothes and they are cute.  No onesies in sight.  He's crawling, he's playing with other little toddlers, crying, laughing and having a ball.  The picture of him pulling on Kate's hair......priceless. 

Prince George was born in July of 2013 and Kim's child was born in June of 2013...... judging from the pictures I have seen of both, Prince George seems like he is more advanced than Kim's child and he's a month younger than Nori. 

Maybe boys mature faster or maybe it's because Kim never show pictures  of her child unless they are staged, but IMO, Prince George seems like he is more active.

Vogue creative director talks about Kim's cover. She's quoted as saying she's fascinated by Kim the way she's fascinated by people on the subway. I don't think Kanye sees his sink queen as a simple subway rider.

describing Kim as “very professional,” and baby North as “very well-behaved. We did millions of pictures and she did not cry once...

Millions? Literally? No wonder she's fascinated by Kim. They speak the same language.

I see Kim made it to the Met Gala.   At least she wasn't wearing a couch this time.   ANd considering some of the other "celebs" who were there, she might not have been the tackiest.

In the vid at the link you can hear the cameras so, benefit of the doubt, perhaps Nori is distracted by the noise from the cameras. But, still, she's not cuddling against her mother while checking out the photogs and Kim is not cuddling her child close to her either. It looks like Nori is forearm-checking her mother. It seems very awkward, like neither of them is into it. I would be surprised to see anything similar with Kate (or William, for that matter) and young George.

The pics of North and Kim are exactly what you would expect to see if a stranger were holding a baby and the baby was struggling to be given back to it's Mom.  That child has no idea why this woman is grabbing onto her.

I don't think she's distracted by the papps either.  If she were, I too would imagine a more normal reaction would be for a baby to put it's face into it's Mother's neck.

Most moms of kids that age straddle the child on their hip, Kourtney is expert at it. Kim holds North as if she were a bag of stinky trash. Or afraid she'll get her top wrinkled or a piss stain on her tittie. Kim is practically shoving her at the paparazzi, no effort to shield her if an errant camera came at them. IMO, it shows how unfamiliar Kim is with holding her.

So it looks like Kimye did the deed. No not the sink again, they actually got married. Congratulations to NorthWest's parents & any future directional siblings.

ETA: More wedding info. Because I know we're all so jealous for every detail. Like I wonder if Kanye wore a hoodie during the ceremony...

I saw a picture of Kanye actually smiling after the wedding, but Kimmode looked pouty ans vaguely unhappy as usual. Funny, she smiled a lot during her last wedding.

Kanye is just as self-absorbed. So they can just go about their business ignoring each other while being "married."

 

BTW, they aren't legally married yet.   Italy has rules too about marriages.   I will only believe they are truly married when a legal ceremony takes place.

Do you blame him? Letting yourself be associated with that show will pretty much kill anybody's credibility. What I find interesting is that it says he waited until they were done filming, does that mean the show get priority over the stars? Oh, Paris Hilton also refused to be filmed, LOL

Yeah, she said it backwards, but you have to excuse it considering that she's making it up as she goes.

And yet another unfortunate comparison between Kimye and the Cambridges.   There is a picture in the Daily Mail of Compass sound asleep with about a foot of space between her and Kanye, with Kim gushing what a great dad he is.  There are also pictures of the Duke and Duchess out with baby George.  Kate is holding him, helping him walk, playing with him.   William is seen looking at him and giving him a sip of his water.   It is the most natural looking family in the world.   No matter how hard Kim tries to make herself out as American "royalty" and the equivalent of Kate, pictures like this will show the lie.

If its the picture of North and Kanye sleeping that Kim posted yesterday after celebrating Father's Day and North's birthday, North is sleeping in the crook of his arm.  No foot of space there.  Can't stand Kim or Kanye, but it is a cute picture.

I just saw the picture of North & Kanye & it looks set up to me. I think the baby fell asleep & Kanye laid down & pretended to be asleep & Kim stuck North next to him. It doesn't look real to me.

So, according to Kanye,  Annie Leibovitz backed out of taking their wedding pictures 1 day before the wedding. Don't know if I believe him. but if she did, she probably was sick of his controlling bullshit. He also revealed that he worked for 4 days of his honeymoon perfecting that insta gram pic of him and Kim kissing in front of the wall of flowers.  He couldn't  get the "color" right. What an idiot. 4 fucking days on that picture? And  the flowers still looked like crap. That must have been some honeymoon.

 

I was reading his comments from the Cannes Lions and he really sounds like a moron. Just trying to decipher his comments is a chore. I can only imagine the conversations he has with Kim. She who never heard the word "undulate" and he who loves the sound of his own voice regardless of the idiotic nonsense that comes out of it.

Far be it from me to defend Kimye, but this "controversy" over North getting her ears pierced strikes me as American ignorance. I can't speak to Armenian practice, but Kanye is African-American and it's not uncommon for us to have our ears pierced at an early age. It's no big deal, IMO. All this pearl clutching is near offensive.

I don't even think it's an African-American thing.  I'm mixed, & my white mom had my ears (& my sisters' ears) pierced at a young age (2-ish) so she could more easily take care of them during the two weeks of healing (knowing that 7 year old me might not clean my ears properly to prevent infection).

Agreed. I thought "there's a controversy over North having pierced ears?" I was 3 months old when I had my ears pierced and when my daughter was around 6 months the pediatrician said its perfectly fine getting them pierced as long as she had all her shots.  I had to laugh at the comments in that CNN article especially the one that said NOTHING is worse than a baby with pierced ears! I mean, its even worse than the child being sick!

Eh, every time a celebrities' baby gets its ears pierced people get all upset. North is just the next in line.

Is there any hidden camera footage of Kim & Kanye being affectionate or just enjoying each others company? I just can't imagine it! I feel like they spend their days giving one another compliments, trying on clothes and taking pictures. What the hell do they talk about?!

Last I saw, Kim was jetting into a place, just as Kanye was leaving.   The perfect marriage -- they are never around each other.   But Kris was right there to support Kanye at Cannes Lions (whatever the hell that is).   She so wants to be the one married to him instead of her brain dead daughter.

I didn't know there was a controversy over North having pierced ears, but I don't think it's a big deal, I've seen lots of babies with pierced ears. I don't really understand why people do it though, it seems like you would always have to worry about the baby ripping their ears.

Why do humans do anything we do? When I went to a South American country recently to volunteer, the native children were fascinated by the fact that I wore earrings period. "Why do you have those in your ears?" I had no other answer than it's seen as attractive in my culture.

Beauty is all relative, but some Americans seem to think they alone dictate culturally acceptable behaviors based on their limited viewpoints.

  I don't have pierced ears and wouldn't pierce my child's, but its a personal choice, don't care what others do in that regard. I do think if those are truly expensive diamond earrings it's kind of ridiculous but par for a Kardashian/West.

I don't have a problem with North having her ears pierced either.  Honestly, I'm surprised the famewhore waited a year to do it.  I just hope they aren't $75k earrings that North can lose in the ocean

TMZ is reporting North disembarking a plane with nannies, assistants, a nurse and bodyguard. But no parent or relative. So sad. Probably will be Nori's normal.

Ironic that Kris can fly on a moments notice to crawl up Kanye's ass in France, or NY, or anywhere he tells her to, but she can't find the time to escort her 1 yr old grandchild on a plane ride. Unless one of the members of the entourage is a relative of Kanye, I really am shocked that the kid is flying alone. Private plane or not.

Personally I don't believe in piercing a baby's ears, but to each their own. I agree it certainly isn't scandal worthy.

I think North spends about 90% of her life with nannies and assistants. Even for celebrity parents, Kim and Kanye are really detached and neglectful.

Right?! Our oldest didnt fly to Sacramento or DC for school trips because we couldn't be with her. I can't imagine something happening on a plane and not being there to comfort my child.

It's no surprise that Kanye is detached from his daughter. Kanye seems to be very unstable. So I'm sure he has not found much common ground with his daughter since he sees himself as some genius who needs to save the world. I think Kim is a detached mother because she is missing the days when she was touted as some sex symbol. She seems to long for the days where she was free to do what she pleased without having to be a mother or be seen as a mother.

 

 

I'm sure Kim loves her daughter but I think she loves fame much more at this point of time. I think Kim needs to embrace motherhood and accept that she can't turn back the clock. I also think that Kim and Kanye were wrong for letting North fly to LA without them. I think Kim or Kanye or Kris or one of the sisters should have accompanied North to LA. Nannies, assistants and security can't make up for real family being around.

  Re recent news, while I agree that a girl's getting her ears pierced when she's a year old isn't a bad thing, sending her on a flight with staff and without family is. Thank Heaven nothing went wrong because North had almost no relatives in general (except for Kanye's aunt on the trip back) or parents in particular there to protect her. Were I in Kim's place and had to go on an overnight business trip, I would either take the kid(s)with me or let their father, family and/or friends watch them because there's no way in Hell I would leave them with strangers for a second, let alone overnight if I didn't have to, whether they're employees or not.

 

  Kudos to Annie Leibowitz and Leonardo di Caprio for not being at Kanye's beck and call. Annie Leibowitz is arguably the best photographer in the world. She's got way more important things to do and way more important people to do them for than Kimye. Chances are if Anna Wintour hadn't hired Leibowitz to do that Vogue Cover Story, she wouldn't have given Kimye the time of day in the first place, separately or together. Wasting 4 days on an Instagram photo? Seriously? I would ask if Kanye's crazy, but we already know the answer to that.  As for Leo, he's an A-list superstar with way more street cred than Kanye these days, who doesn't want to risk it on the likes of Kimye and I not only don't blame him, I commend him. Leo has a career and a rep to protect and his refusal to publically squander it for the Kardashian's sake is just pure common sense. Leo may be a serial modelizer and he certainly could've found a Kardashian-free party at Cannes, but he seems to know one thing that Kanye doesn't: that glorified porn stars, which is basically what Kim is, aren't marriage material. Just "hit it & quit it"; don't marry it. Re Kanye's dissing President Obama, that's probably sour grapes about the Obamas not coming to the wedding. About Kanye's claim that "[he's] on a mission from God," if that was true, then he wouldn't have gone anywhere near Kim in the first place. But my favorite story is from this week's Entertainment Weekly's "Bulls-Eye" section about Kanye's getting booed at Bonaroo.  Kanye's rep was in trouble before he hooked up with Kim, but now he might at well change his last name to "Kardashian" too.

 

 

"Mission from God"  The asshole stole that line from Jake and Elroy.

 

  While I agree that Kanye's an asshole, the correct name is Elwood.
