I never thought I would write about a celebrity on my blog, lesson learned, never say never. In America the focus of interest for some is our celebrities, what are they doing, wearing, partying, smoking, weighing, dating, divorcing…..the list goes on and on. It’s a want to know movement and the media is on board to dish the good, bad and the ugly. Of course the more dirt there is the longer it stays in the headlines, how unfortunate people feed on the choices of another.
How many celebrities do we know stay on the straight and narrow road for the onlookers, the waiting vultures, who are anxious to see them fall? Quite recently America’s sweetheart was caught on camera mouthing off to the police. Who would have thought an America’s sweetheart could react in such a way but guess what she’s human. If it was a non-celebrity we would have never seen it but because she is who she is there was no stoppage of media flow, it had to appear over and over again. Of course she appeared on camera apologizing for her behavior blah blah blah, your human. Who cares was my response everyone makes mistakes, whose interested in a celebrity getting verbal, well the media, her fans and every Tom, Dick and Harry who wanted to blab on it.
I am not into the reality shows but I do catch a few when I am in the mood for reality entertainment. I have watched Hollywood Ex’s, Married to Medicine, Black Ink Crew, Basketball Wives, Housewives of Atlanta (in very rare occasions) and last but not least Keeping up with the Kardashians. My DVR is not set to record any of these shows nor do I rush home or stop all activities to watch it. If nothing else is on and I pass by there’s a possibility I may linger and stay around to catch the show. I see nothing wrong with my choice of TV entertainment, if it doesn’t interest me then I move on.
My reason for this particular post is because of Kim Kardashian and her haters if I can call them that. Not that I am singling her out, there is a list of other celebrities who have their share of haters or judgmental followers I guess would be another word for them. There is no shortage of celebrities who don’t get their share of hateful, unnecessary comments. If you don’t like an individual for whatever reasons then why would one pay attention to that person? If the person disgust you and all you have is nothing but distasteful things to say, why would you take the time to comment? Move on. I don’t understand a person taking the time to sit and think about me enough to comment on how much they hate me, what I do, what I wear, how much I weigh or who I date, if I turn you off so much why would you waste time on me?
Kim K was on Jay Leno Tonight Show last night, showing off her figure in a see-through dress and loving her moment because that’s how the chic rolls, it’s how she makes her money. Isn’t that how we were introduced to her many years ago? What’s changed, not a darn thing! She has blown up since then, now a reality star and so much more. I personally like the Kardashians, to me they are down to earth people, they don’t pretend to be anything else but who they are.
Not because I am behind closed doors makes me any different from the one on the reality show. What make me different, well I’m a non-celebrity where as, well you know they are known everywhere. Kim K posted as they say a “racy bathing suit” picture last week of herself on Instagram and boy did she get hit with all sorts of comments smh. I take pictures of myself all the time in bathing suits and post it, what’s the problem if I do it? I have three kids and a very flat stomach should I not be proud of that? I would be extremely happy if I lose 50 pounds of baby weight and want to show it off, what’s the problem? It may not be something you want to do but if Kim K wants to post her picture, its her prerogative. Now if I was a celebrity I may think twice of posting certain pictures but I’m not, however if I was in the spotlight I still think it would be my option to live my life the way I wanted to. Remember its her life not yours.
I decided to take a look at her Instagram page, cheese and peas the amount of people who visit her page to post ugly comments is crazy. If you don’t like the chic why are you even going to her page and wasting your time to post a derogative comment? Kim K doesn’t have anybody to answer to but her God. If you’re not impressed, if you don’t agree, your turned off, turn the page, choose another article, close your eyes and seek what’s interest you. Stop wasting time on things that in no way concern, interest or add nothing to your life.
You have an opinion; we all have our own opinions, its our’s and not to be pushed down someone else’s throat, let it be. She posted a pic, she appeared in a dress she did something in your opinion not becoming, guess what, there is a simple solution to that, move on! I like the Kardashians, as far as I can see they are no different from me other than their pay grade and they live in the spotlight. I would have posted the same picture after having a baby and losing 50 pounds, I would have been proud. I post a pic maybe 250 people see it, Kim K post …..well you now have millions viewing. It’s her life, she can do and is doing what makes her happy. Who is anyone to judge, what does the Bible say “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”
Celebrities are no different from you and I, they cut and bleed the same. The only difference is that they are in the spotlight and of course their bank account. They have the perks of being in the spotlight and of course they pay in other ways to be there. It comes with the job and the media is there to report it. It’s a two-way street that goes hand in hand, they need each other to continue making it big. People take a chill pill, no one is telling you how to live your life so why pick on her’s?
