Kim Kardashian and 49 Million Twitter Followers
The media circus always sticks to Kim Kardashian with juicy stories. The 36 year old mega star known as an American diva, socialite, businesswoman and model appears to be the center of the pubic and paparazzi wherever she heads to. Under the view of social media, the criticism against Kim Kardashian likely catches public attention as many people have unceremoniously condemned her scandals as well as her personal life. However, there is one question about the number 49 million followers on Kim’s Twitter that the answers can totally change our perspectives about “the Queen of oversharing”.
Kim Kardashian first gained the eyes of social media as one of Paris Hilton’s tight-knit friends, but widely known after the sex tape scandal in 2003 with her boyfriend Ray – J. Years later, a range of personal issues and scandals about Kim was surfaced and spread throughout the community, notably “Kim Kardashian Robbery” or “ the Queen of Narcissism”. Described by many online newspapers, Kadarshian was supposed to be the magnet for scandals. According to Pepper Schwartz, professor of sociology at the University of Washington and the author of several well-known books like “ The Normal Bar”, when she said “Kim”, people would know the last name.
Despite of these, the number of Kim’s followers on Twitter is surprisingly huge with 49 million which pushes her on top of famous Tweets at the moment. Perhaps, some can say that is because of the public curiosity as people often have the tendency to be seduced by the indecent and shocking information, but it can be explained by much further eligible reasons that we may not expect or notice.
First and foremost, the reputation of Kim Kardashian is not apparently built up by the scandals in favor of her talent and capacity. Starting with the reality television in 2007, she first appeared in the successful reality TV series called “ Keep Up with the Kardashians” and until now, the series has been released in several seasons with millions of views on Youtube channel. In 2008, she starred in the spoof film “ Disaster Movie”, then announced to take part in the dance show, “ Dancing with the Stars” and finished at the third place with her partner Mark Ballas. The following year was marked by her participation in a host of shows like the guest star of the episode, “ Benefits” of the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”, the guest host of “WrestleMania XXIV” or the guest judge in one of the most popular America shows, “American’s Next Top Model”. Not to be outdone, Kim first built up her own perfume brand called “ Kim Kardashian” with a delicious and wonderful scent in 2009. Together with two sisters, she has entered the business world with the boutique shop D-A-S-H at the outset, and followed by an online shoes and accessories website which has attracted around 3 million buyers so far.
Furthermore, the prestigious Kim Kardashian West brand can also be proved in business and retail ventures. She is the founder of the company, Kimsaprincess Productions LLC which produces the DVDs for workout. Especially, she released the games for iPhone and Android called “Kim Kardashian : Hollywood” and gained US $1.6 million in the first five days. The game was a testament of the star capacity which was recorded the fifth highest earning game in Apple Store. Later on, the “Kimoji” app that we use today is also Kim’s design. It was reported that there were more than 9,000 downloads per second after the app was launched. By having a look at what the 36 year old star has done, many of us can raise the question about if there is anything else she can do.
Secondly, the friendliness, generosity and sympathy of Kim Kardashian can be explicitly seen from her good deeds. Apart from many Hollywood stars, the diva appears with the smile on her face and the willingness to take photo or selfies with fans at any time. In a footage uploaded on youtube, the star did not really care the raining weather but enjoyed the moment with her fans. On the trip back to her father’s homeland, Armenia, two old ladies waited several hours in front of the hotel in hope of seeing Kim. Finally, they were all satisfied with the moment Kim embraced them in happiness. Have you ever witnessed the famous singers or actors allow the strangers to get into their car for taking a photo only?. When it comes to Kardashian, it is strictly true. In another trip to Nice ( France ), an avid fan unexpectedly ran into the car where Kim was sitting asking for a photo. Without hesitation, the diva agreed without even thinking about her safety. In addition, she was also one of the first celebrities welcomed the move of LGBT community in America. Posted on her blog, Kim showed how enthusiastic she was with the lines : “This is such a huge step forward in our country’s fight for civil rights and I hope that today this will give hope to so many young people across the country. We’ve never had a president so supportive of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community and today I am proud to be an American!! I’m so happy that our country is making history and moving forward." As a participant in NOH8 campaign, along with a host of noted people she took pictures in support of LGBT movement. Her distribution to the genocide education in Armenia is regarded as one the most meaningful deeds as she wrote in Time. In a status on Instagram, the star could not conceal her emotion : “Today marks the 100 year anniversary of Armenian Genocide! I am proud to now say I have been to Armenia. I have seen the memorials and the people who survived and I am so proud of how strong the Armenian people are! I am saddened that still 100 years later not everyone has recognized that 1.5 million people were murdered. But proud of the fact that I see change and am happy many people have started to recognize this genocide! We won't give up, we will be recognized by all soon! #NeverForget#ProudArmenian”. Meanwhile, her charitable deeds can somehow help us to deconstruct more about who she is. Over the past few years, Kim has surprisingly been a hospital volunteer at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. During the holidays, she always comes to visit the sick children, plays with them, lets kids take selfies with her or even paints all kinds of color on their nails. The star never forgets the moral from her father that the moment she sleeps on the soft mattress is also the time millions of needy and poor people are grappling with hunger and poverty. Therefore, she always donates an immense amount of money for malnourished people in Africa or the victims of typhoon in Philippines and many other charitable programs.
It is true that individuals keep their own stance with their own views about someone or something. But somehow many of us still forget that singers, actors, actresses or leaders are humans which are endowed with imperfections. Every now and then, we confidently claim that we comprehend what kind of characteristics of one person is but it turns out we know nothing about them. Viewed from different angels, we will soon realize how great they are like Kim Kardashian once said: “ Get to know me and see who I am “.
