There may have been a point where reality starlet, Kim Kardashian appearing naked or half naked even on a magazine cover may have tempted curious voyeurs to stare and wonder. But those days it seems are long over. Such were the reactions and over reaching sentiments with the release ( I have been told leaked, but that’s pr bunk) of Kim Kardashian’s naked pictorial for LOVE magazine as photographed by Steven Klein as modeled for Prada.
The leaked images (again let me stress, overtly pushed images from LOVE, Prada and Kim’s publicity handlers) feature the doyen of marketing genius and self promotion straddling naked in a 30 page spread. The suggestion given the explicit nature of the images and very shiny oil spread all over Kim and even the hanging cigarette is that we’re supposed to be shocked and implored. Unfortunately it seems for Kim and Love magazine, social media commentators have found the whole thing derogatory, trifling, and quite the let down.
Some commentators have wondered if Kim is beyond her used by expiration date, how the reality starlet has remained in the news, over exposed, especially given the fact that she does not produce or create anything except live a gilded existence and pursue make believe treatises which the media can’t help but trip over itself to cover.
Yes, Kim Kardashian does sell, but not necessarily for the reasons she may be hoping, but money and fame is money and fame last time I looked, even if in Kim’s case it questionably remains a superficial production. Then again that too may be the overarching statement of our society: how superficial and supercilious it has all become?
And then there were these reactions on twitter that caught my eye:
Kanye West doesn’t want Kim Kardashian to be on reality TV because it “cheapens the brand”. But he’s happy that she’s done more naked shoots
at what point is Kim Kardashian going to realise that the entire world has seen her sex tape, these naked photoshoots aren’t so shocking?
All Kim Kardashian is good for is bein
Why does Kim Kardashian keep getting naked #youastupidhoe
I can’t with Kim Kardashian and the full frontal nude magazines. I adore her but NOW, this trend is starting to become… humdrum.
