Kim Kardashian Defends Her Reality Star Fame: “Acting and Singing Aren’t the Only Ways to Be Talented”
Kim Kardashian is a reality star through and through — and she’s proud of it!
In a recent interview with British newspaper The Guardian, journalist Emma Brockes repeatedly probed Kim about her status as a reality television star and asked if she had any discernible talents. Fighting back, the curvy starlet claimed that she’s just as talented as anyone else in the public eye.
"When I hear people say [what are you famous for?], I want to say, what are you talking about?" Kim said. "I have a hit TV show. We've shot more episodes than I Love Lucy! We've been on the air longer than The Andy Griffith Show! I mean, these are iconic shows, so it blows my mind when people say that."
In response to claims that Kim is famous for doing nothing, the reality starlet brought up her famously busy schedule.
“I work really hard – I have seven appointments tomorrow before 10am. I'm constantly on the go. I have a successful clothing line. A fragrance,” Kim said. “I mean, acting and singing aren't the only ways to be talented. It's a skill to get people to really like you for you, instead of a character written for you by somebody else."
"What is my talent?” she added. "Well, a bear can juggle and stand on a ball and he's talented, but he's not famous. Do you know what I mean?"
