I’ll give you that Kim Kardashian is not the worst thing to look at. I’ll give you that she gets down with Reggie Bush, so at least we know she is on the right side of the USC/UCLA debate. That being said, I am pretty sure she is the fourth horseman of the apocalypse. Recently I got linked to her Twitter feed and was totally shocked. Well, not shocked, but maybe a little disturbed. Part of me always roots for society, hoping there is a chance we can move in the right direction. Then I read her tweets and confirmed what I already knew: celebrity now can come from the simple formula of wealth + stupidity + sex tape.
You can see from her posts, advertisers are paying top dollar for her to make sponsored tweets. Literally, that means she is an influencer. God help us. What will this generation of kids be like that grew up watching this stuff? I mean, for people our age and up, it is entertainment. It’s a funny inside joke between smart people and producers. Producers film these people, smart viewers are amused by their stupidity, the “celebs” are thrilled to become reality tv “celebs”, which in society is one step above dart board, only they have no idea that is what it is about.
Anyway, check these tweets out. I’ll annotate them for your Monday enjoyment.
