Kim Kardashian was the guest of the Commonwealth Club at the famed Castro Theater in San Francisco Tuesday night and revealed her outspoken side. Not that anything intellectually stimulating emerged from her ramblings, but it is entertaining to watch her try:
A guest with the celebrity stature of hers is not a common occurrence for the club, which, in its 100-year history, has hosted discussions with political and civic leaders and is the oldest public affairs forum in the country.
But there Kardashian was, sitting down with retired Judge LaDoris Cordell — the first African-American woman judge in Northern California who is now an Independent Police Auditor in San Jose — for an hour-long interview to promote her new book, “Selfish,” and her wildly popular gaming app.
“[We have a] generation of girls that are beautiful but don’t have a strong work ethic,” Kardashian said, cautioning people against believing that her life is as vapid as it is sometimes portrayed on the long-running reality series, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” She goes to meetings — lots of meetings. And she credits her famous husband, Kanye West, with keeping her relevant.
In reference to her app, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, the 34-year-old reality star revealed that “Kanye made me do this game.” Kanye is also credited with suggesting the concept for “Selfish” as well as giving the book its title. When she wasn’t praising her husband, Kardashian also spoke of her famous family.
Judge Cordell asked about Kardashian’s role as a woman.
Does she consider herself a feminist? Despite what people might think of her, she doesn’t believe in using labels. Do selfies objectify women? Yes! And she is proud of objectifying herself!
Judge Cordell also challenged Kardashian on several political topics, including same-sex marriage and presidential race. What does she think of the Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage? “It was about time,” she said. “I’m proud of Obama for getting that done.”
As for whether she thinks Hillary Clinton should be the country’s first female president, Kardashian said, “I hope so!”
Yuck, yuck yuck. Kim is one of those ‘role models’ you really wish didn’t exist. I mean, really, who wouldn’t want their daughter acting just like this vapid airhead? I know I am totally sad my daughter gets good grades and relies on her talents and not her butt breaking the internet, know what I mean?
In all seriousness, why do we put such weight on her opinions? She is just another Hollywood star that spouts off about whatever with no real education about it, and her ignorant following tweets and retweets her nonsense, propagating her image of importance further. As for myself, I choose to ignore her and her lunatic family. I am not about the drama. Kim needs to realize what she is good at – selfies and spending money, and stick to that. Thanks.
