Kim Kardashian is clearly a woman with a beautify body — but is she a good human being? Does she deserve our rapt attention and careful imitation? Or has she only, repeatedly, earned our pity? Kim first stung our national eye red while starring in a graphic sex videotape — and, since that embarrassment, she’s feature danced in a sad reality television show that demonstrates her inbred lack of social mores and a vacancy of proper cultural values; she posed nude for Playboy and later regretted her bad taste in exposing her flesh — and this week she appears butt-naked-but-painted-in-silver on the cover of W magazine: The badonkadonk doth protest too much, wethinks.
Kim must believe her current W magazine exposure is “art” while she now thinks her Playboy stunt was beneath her aesthetic morality — even though she took off her clothes and posed for money.
Is Ms. Kardashian just another middling flesh opportunist, or is she instead a substantial, but clever, thinker whose moral motives and artistic inspirations the rest of the world have yet to understand, let alone, comprehend?
Are we attracted to Kim’s body or are we drawn to what her mind has to offer the greater resonances of the world?
Will we still hunger for the hussiness of Kim Kardashian’s nakedness 50 years from now — or will she willfully remove herself from the public panopticon to preserve our fleshy memory of her flouncy body in the prime of her life?
