Kardashian Question

Pro Kardashian: by ava johnson

I own three of Kylie Jenner’s lip kits. Bible. I have seen all 176 episodes of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Bible.

This family is like royalty, with endless amounts of flawless selfies and Fendi-filled wardrobes. I worship them for their perfect eyebrows and million-dollar lifestyles of constant entertainment.

People accuse them of being “dumb” and “talentless” yet they all manage constant fame and careers at the same time. Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Robert, Kylie and Kendall are all talented in different ways. Are Victoria Secret models talentless? No. Is creating a mobile app that is constantly at the top of app store charts talentless? Not at all.

They’ve faced obstacles, like the OJ Simpson case and Kim’s sex tape, but they’ve spun these negatives into something positive: fame and fortune. Some people choose to hate them for this, but I see it as success.

People watching reality TV want to see drama and humor, and the Kardashians know just the right way to give it to them. If they weren’t successful at it, then they wouldn’t be preparing for their 12th season of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

I’ve been “Keeping up with the Kardashians” for all 12 seasons. I sit on my leather couch dying of laughter over their dramatic fights about who is more famous while they lay in the sun in Bora Bora. During commercial breaks I online shop in envy of their perfect attire.

They are all always dressed to perfection wearing their trademark nudes and blacks. I’d give up wearing bright colors for their million dollar closets. The Kardashians are the best dressed in any room they enter and I love them for it.

When I’m not in the mood to online shop, I can grab one of my Vogue magazines to look through. Of course, first thing I see is flawless model Kendall Jenner on the cover. She is a Kardashian through marriage but it counts all the same. Kardashians are everywhere and for good reason; they exemplify a strong sense of style and created their own business life.

The people who choose to look at the Kardashian’s past need to get over it and focus on the present. They have make-up lines, top rated apps and modeling careers. I wouldn’t go so far to say that these women are talentless or undeserving.  

Anti Kardashian: by annie jones

The Kardashians are rich and talentless. Koko, the sign language-fluent gorilla, deserves more money than them.

Their fame and wealth sprouted from Kim’s leaked sex tape in 2007 and ever since then the media revolves around them. The Kardashian family is at the top of the leaderboard with the most scandals, affairs and one 72-day marriage. From magazine covers, makeup and fashion lines – the 21st century household name is everywhere.

Kim published a book last year. A book filled cover to cover with 352 pages of selfies, two of which are topless. Yes, Kim is good at taking pictures of herself, posing nude for a camera and turning on the waterworks for some good television, but these are not the kind of people who should be worth the most in our society.

I hate to admit that I find myself following the family members’ social media, but I’m never genuinely interested in their immoral lives. Why would I want to sit through hour-long snapchat stories of Kylie’s liquid-lip-swatched wrist and the newest Bentleys in her garage. And when Kim posts another nude photo on Instagram, I find myself pitying North – probably feeling like her mom pays more attention to her social media accounts than to her.

As if “Entertainment Tonight” didn’t already cover enough about them, the Kardashians had to make a TV show to expose more about themselves. There is absolutely nothing real about their reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” It reflects the faux lives of a very small percent of our population – celebrities. If people want real, why not bring a camera crew to my house and watch my dad sit alone on the couch for two hours while watching the Golf Channel. Hopefully people would get the hint that real life isn’t spent in the Hamptons every weekend.

This August Kylie Jenner finally released her Ramen Noodle recipe. Yes, her Ramen Noodle recipe. The anticipation killed me, eating Ramen the same way Kylie Jenner does was just something I couldn’t wait for. What made this recipe so revolutionary – butter, egg and garlic powder.

Why in the world is Kylie Jenner’s instant noodle recipe big enough news for 52,000 Google search results when Asians have been adding garlic to their noodles for centuries? Her big release got more coverage than the Rio Olympics.

I guess this is our society today – a person can become a billionaire based on whether they’re attractive or not and true wealth and praise seems to be reached when you don’t truly deserve it.

Ultimately the Kardashians are glorified “pretty people” who saw their own worth and decided to run with it, making millions every year and doing whatever they want with it. I give them major props though – the Kardashians are the best marketing team there is. They are the most influential family in the world and we have no one to blame but ourselves for fueling their fame by simply keeping up with them.
