A series of occasional musings on the week’s events…
There was Kim Kardashian West, all pouty face, peroxide hair and strangely devoid of any clothes posing in an opulent bathroom, seemingly with the sole intention of telling us all that she’s rich and likes being naked. And then there was the rest of womenkind and menfolk collectively sighing at the thought of seeing KKW’s boobs and bum. Again.
Throughout her husband Kanye West’s embarrassing public meltdown, which has played out over the past few weeks on Twitter, Kim has managed to remain quite dignified in her silence. But all that came crashing down in spectacular fashion when she posted another picture of herself in the buff – and the world retaliated by telling her to bore off and get some clothes.
It turns out KKW isn’t much of a fan of constructive criticism – even when that criticism is coming from Oscar-nominated actress Bette Midler – a woman with more talent in her little finger than Kanye’s wife possesses even in that ample internet-breaking derriere.
After a casual dig about Bette being up past her bedtime, Kim then turned her bitchy attentions to 19-year-old actress Chloe Grace Moretz – who dared to suggest women have more to offer than a perfectly-toned set of abs and pert boobs – by slating her ‘mere’ 2 million Twitter followers and choice of Nylon clothing (God forbid).
All of this after a particularly crass tweet about banking an $80m cheque. Proof, if it was ever needed, that all the money in the world doesn’t buy you class.
Sadly, this display came on the dawn of International Women’s Day – a day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of inspirational and aspirational women across the world.
Posing naked, bragging about being stinking rich and slating all who dare to criticise her publicity-seeking ways does nothing but make a mockery of the celebration of the strong women she claims to represent.
We can only hope that Kim will soon find some of that class she’s clearly misplaced under her piles of furs, put on some clothes and let us get on with talking about the women who actually deserve our attentions.
