Melbourne: Kim Kardashian’s current biography on IMDb reads like an attack on the culture of modern celebrities.
The bio, reportedly drafted by IMDB contributor Jon C Hopwood, features a slew of negative quotes and provides a scathing and fairly accurate assessment of the reality TV star’s entertainment “career” as an asinine publicity sponge.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Kim Kardashian is emblematic of the shallowness of American culture in the first two decades of the new millennium. While some cultural critics call her the prime avatar of the “famous for being famous” faux celebrity crowd, she along with Paris Hilton is a new breed of cat whose celebrity comes from the release of a sex tape and the canny exploitation of the resulting publicity. Like her good friend Miss Hilton (their relationship predates Kim`s “celebrity”, Kardashian is possessed of photogenic good looks but is short of any other discernible talents outside of the bedroom. Both expanded their celebrity by becoming reality TV “stars”.”
The bio goes onto detail the backlash against Kim K, highlighting Daniel Craig`s recent expletive-ridden attack on her in GQ, News.com.au reported.
“You see that and you think, ‘What, you mean all I have to do is behave like a f***ing idiot on television and then you`ll pay me millions?” - and Mad Men star Jon Hamm’s recent expletive-ridden attack on her in Elle – “Being a f***ing idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture. You’re rewarded significantly.”
The bio goes on to say:
“That the women’s fame rests on the February 2007 “leaking” of a four-year-old home sex tape (for which she ultimately received 5 million dollars from Vivid Entertainment) is an apt metaphor for socio-economic-cultural malaise in Washington and the country beyond, where everything seems to be run by amoral prostitutes in bed with each other and merely out for a buck.”
