Kim Kardashian says she wishes people would stop focusing on her butt all the time
On Thursday, Vogue published a 73-question video interview with Kim Kardashian, which was definitely not painfully planned to the point of unintentional comedy. In the footage, Kim welcomes the reporter into her massive home in Hidden Hills, California. She describes the decor as "minimal monastery," which is a fancy way of saying, "white with like nothing inside."
The video features cameos from Kim's mom-ager Kris Jenner, her three adorable children North, Saint and Chicago, plus husband, Kanye West, whose Make America Great Again hat must have been in the wash. When asked what she's taught Yeezy, Kim says, "I've given him, like, really good financial advice on saving." To which he replies, "You've given me some advice but I don't listen it." Oh, you too!
Then, when asked how he knew Kim was 'the one,' Yeezy said, "When I saw her in a paparazzi photo with Paris Hilton." Ah, so romantic!
Anyway, this interview isn't about Kanye. It's about Kim, and she answers some very deep, philosophical questions like, "Is free will real or just an illusion?" "Without religion would people become more, less, or be equally morally corrupt?" And: "If someone you loved was killed in front of you, but someone created a copy of them that was perfect right down to the atomic level, would they be the same person and would you love them just as much?"
Nah, just kidding! The journalist asked slightly easier questions, but nonetheless fascinating. Kim said the most rewarding thing about being a mom is "When the kids tell you they love you." She said the most overused phrase right now is "it's lit," which happens to Kylie Jenner's boyfriend Travis Scott's trademark adlib. (SHOTS FIRED?!) And, when asked what she wished people would focus on, Kim said, "I wish people would not focus on my ass all the time."
That's an interesting answer, since Kim became famous in pop culture for her curvaceous figure. She hasn't been shy about showing off her applebottom on social media, fueling gossip about whether her butt is "real" or enhanced with cosmetic surgery. Most notably, she showed off her posterior in Paper Magazine's 2014 "break the internet" spread, which included a photo of her balancing a glass of champagne on her ass. Impressive!
But there's much more to Kim than her butt. In Vogue's May cover story, she revealed that she is studying to become a lawyer and plans to take the bar exam in 2022. The 38-year-old said she felt inspired after visiting the White House to request a pardon for free Alice Marie Johnson, a 63-year-old great-grandmother serving a life sentence for a first-time, non-violent drug offense.
"The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, sh*t. I need to know more," she said.
