Though she has the unconditioned love and support of millions of fans from all over, Kim Kardashian is yet to prove herself to the world as an “artist.” Her biggest problem is, obviously, that she’s a reality star but that shouldn’t stop her from getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Or so she believes.
In a new interview with V Magazine, cited by The Huffington Post
, Kim talks a bit about the downsides of being a reality star and how one of them is not being acknowledged on the prestigious Walk of Fame with a star.
Never mind that, Kim says. Even though reality stars don’t get one, she plans to be the exception to the rule.
“I think there was a quote where somebody said that reality stars will never get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Kim says for the publication.
She also knows that reality stars are not considered for this honor because they have no real talent to speak of: they don’t sing, compose or write music, and they don’t act, direct or write film.
“So, of course I’m so competitive that I think that it would be a huge achievement and a goal that anyone would want. I would love to break that mold,” she adds.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s response to this is hilarious (via Gawker
): get real, Kim.
“She has not been nominated. She is a reality star. We don't do reality stars. She needs to get a real acting job then come to us,” the HCC says.
In the same V Magazine interview, Kim also compares reality television to rap music in its earlier stages, arguing that people generally hate what they don’t understand and is new.
“I’m not naïve to the fact that I’m not a singer or an actress or anything like that. I’ve never claimed to be anything that I’m not. I think [reality] is still a new form of entertainment that was kind of an unexpected thing. It reminds me of rap music,” she says.
“When rap music first came out, people were like, We don’t understand this, what is this, it’s just a fad. But rap music is definitely here to stay, and I think reality shows have proven they are as well. But when something is newer, people don’t really understand it,” Kim argues.
