When you think of Kim Kardashian you mainly think of her gravity defying derrière which has subsequently become a hot news topic this week. When I woke up on Tuesday I did my routine check of  social media sites and was shocked to see Kim K’s pert bum covered what can only described as excessive baby oil (she must have raided North’s stash) or Krispy Kreme doughnut icing. My first reaction was ‘huh I remember in 2011 on Kourtney and Kim Take New York you hysterically said would never do a nude photo shoot again “I’m never taking my clothes off again, even if it’s for Vogue”  and here we are four years later with you bum all up on my Instragram for the New York magazine Paper’.

Annoying as the photos are it is more the content of the interview that baffled me.  Paper described her as ‘feminist-entrepreneur-pop-culture-icon’ I am not sure becoming famous through releasing a sex tape would fall under the feminist category nor would The Suffragettes be nodding their heads in approval I am sure. Moreover their sickly sweet way of describing her looks made me want to grab a sick bucket ‘does anyone else have eyelashes that resemble miniature feather dusters?’I don’t understand where this idolisation for Kim K has come from. Like most reality stars she contributes very little to society other than countless self obsessed pictures and absurd story lines.

In the same week as scientific advances were made by a robot probe making a historic landing on a comet, Barack Obama and Aung San Suu Kyi worked on getting peace in Burma, Berlin celebrated the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and we remember those who have lost lives in war, Kim Kardashian’s bum seems to be the biggest news story.

Well done Kim K you did #BreakTheInternet. But every cloud has a silver lining because your shoot has produced many hilarious memes. Here are some of my favourites…
