The answer appears to be yes, since she’s social climbed and slept her way to the top of the reality pile, earning money for fashions stolen from real designers. And here she is on the cover. In the profile itself, all seven pages, there’s little interview and mostly reams and reams of NY Mag excoriating the 31-year-old’s lack of credibility.
On fashion and working with boyfriend Kanye West: “If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went. It’s cool, cause you can definitely get more in-depth with someone who actually knows what you’re talking about…When this whole life is done, and it’s just the two of us sitting somewhere when we’re 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common. I think that’s something maybe I didn’t value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone.”
On what she wants for the future: “I don’t really have goals as far as, I want to be on a cover or something like that. I think my goals are more just expanding my line, and having my line be really successful. That’s the ultimate goal, I think, for me. I don’t say, ‘Oh, I want to be on this magazine or I want to do this.’ It’s all fun. And I love, definitely, turning into a different character. I think each shoot has a different personality.” - via New York Magazine.
In related Kardashian news, Bourne’s Jeremy Renner has criticized the family’s shows as vapid and worthless. Asked by The Guardian newspaper about the Kardashians, Renner replied: “Oh, all those ridiculous people with zero talent who spend their lives making sure everyone knows their name. Those stupid, stupid people.”
Renner explains, his resentment is because he worked his way up: “One minute I’m homeless. The next I’m still homeless, but I’m in a tuxedo, on my way to the Oscars, stopping at a coffee shop to brush my teeth because I don’t have running water. The next minute Jack Nicholson, someone I’ve admired my entire life, is right in front of me saying my name. Then he’s saying the names of two movies I did and I’m like, ‘Jesus, all I wanted to do was be in a movie that would play in a big enough theater that my family would get to see it. And now this.’ What can I say? It’s weird. I know it’s a cliche but I never wanted to be famous. I don’t believe anybody wants to be famous.”
