The Irony of Kim Kardashian’s ’60 Minutes’ Interview Is Not Lost

It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian was born to be famous. At a young age growing up in Los Angeles among the rich and famous, KKW was prepared to do whatever she had to for the spotlight. So she cast Ray J. And with the help of momager Kris Jenner and a well-timed released, the real first family of the United States was born.

Coming up on a decade in the spotlight, Kim Kardashian sat down with Bill Whitaker of 60 Minutes to talk about her experience in becoming one of the most famous people ever. KKW’s answers are in no way surprising, if you have spent the required hours of analysis delving into her lifestyle choices, but the morbid irony is not lost for how the answers may have changed since her October 2nd robbery.

The reality television star and mogul was clear about the necessity for social media in her lane for career growth:

I totally attribute my career to social media.

But it’s been three weeks since we’ve seen or heard anything from her. I saw her forehead in a Joyce Bonelli snap from KKW’s birthday and I’d be lying if I had to admit it didn’t give me a dopamine rush. Whitaker, being the skilled journalist that he is, spun the thought that the Kardashians are famous for nothing. He led with:

You monetized the act of living.

We want to absorb this woman in her daily life. She’s fascinating. So detached from our daily lives yet somehow pervasive in every layer of pop culture. That’s no accident and she won’t be told it didn’t take ingenuity to cultivate her brand:

It is a talent to have a brand that’s really successful off of getting people to like you for you.

And we do. And we want to be just like her so maybe we could like ourselves too. And in the most painful jab of the interview, Kim admits to loving her public life.

I do believe that the pros in my situation and my lifestyle have been more beneficial than the negative things.

That’s certainly changed since her famous face is what lead to her most recent trauma.
