Really, it’s hard to understand Kim Kardashian. I mean, who compares her former relationship with cancer? That’s exactly what Kim K did in an interview with the UK Guardian last weekend.
She was the cover star for the weekend edition of the Guardian and in the corresponding article titled, “Kim Kardashian: my life as a brand,” Kanye’s first lady opens up about everything from why she is famous, to how her post-marriage situation can be likened to that of a young girl who is suffering from cancer.
See excerpts below:
On why she is famous:
“When I hear people say [what are you famous for?], I want to say, what are you talking about?” 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.”
Kim’s breakdown of rap music:
When rap music first started, rappers were not respected and people thought it was just a fad. And people thought reality shows were going to come and go. They have taken over the soap operas. So it’s a modern version of a soap opera.”
On how her marriage to Kris likens to that of a cancer patient:
“We decided to film for the wedding,” she says. “And that was a decision that [Kris Humphries] and I made together. But I think that, with any decisions in life [brace yourselves], like, I spoke to a girl today who had cancer and we were talking about how this is such a hard thing for her, but it taught her a big lesson on who her friends are and so much about life. She’s 18. And I was like, that’s how I feel.
