Jon Bon Jovi says Kim Kardashian is only famous for making an adult film
These days, it's very difficult to avoid seeing celebrity news everywhere. It's always on the television, or blasted across social media, or being discussed around the water cooler at work by people who really ought to be at their desks. And the Kardashians are probably some of the worst for it. Their faces are always posted up on billboards or brandished across the sides of buses - so you can't even walk down the street without being instructed to tune in to KUWTK.
It's perhaps understandable, then, that some people occasionally get a little bit irked by seeing Kim K & co pretty much anywhere they look.
Jon Bon Jovi, however, is more than just a little bit irritated by Kim Kardashian's fame. In fact, he's downright mad.
In an interview with Access Hollywood, the frontman of the hit '80s band, Bon Jovi, tore into people who find fame through reality shows, paying particular attention to Kim Kardashian.
"I think it’s horrific that we live in that world and I can tell you I’ve never given 60 seconds of my life, ever, to one of those Housewives of Blah Blah and Kardashians," he said.
He then went on to put the reality star on blast for her past actions, saying that she only achieved the level of fame she has now thanks to the sex tape she made with her then-boyfriend, Ray-J.
"I don’t know their names, I’ve never watched 60 seconds of the show, it’s not for me. What’s gonna be in your autobiography? ‘I made a porno and guess what, I got famous.’ F**k, sorry, I’ll pass."
The 56-year-old then went on to say that there were much more respectable ways of achieving stardom.
"Go and write a book, paint a painting, act, study, sing, play write," he said. "Having a kid tell me 'I want to be famous,' and I say, 'Why?' Fame is a byproduct of writing a good song."
His words were harsh, for sure, but they are nothing that Kim hasn't heard before. Every day, KKW faces a ton of criticism from fans and fellow celebs alike - most often on social media, but occasionally via public call-outs like this one.
Back in 2016, though, Kim K acknowledged her haters in the sassiest way possible by posting a picture of herself on the cover of Forbes magazine - a privilege she earned after making $45 million from her mobile game, "Kim Kardashian Hollywood" (something else that Bon Jovi probably hates).
"I never dreamed this would happen and know my Dad would be so proud," she wrote on Instagram, adding the hashtag, "#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent."
Perhaps there is a grain of truth to Bon Jovi's claims about how Kim originally attained her fame status, but there's no way that she would have kept up her level of stardom today without some significant work on her part.
Love her or hate her, then, there's no doubt that Kim Kardashian has come a long way from where she started - and, now that she's made a name for herself, she probably doesn't care what Bon Jovi (or anyone else) thinks.
