Kim Kardashian Admits She Wouldn't Be Famous If It Wasn't For the Internet
Kim Kardashian is one of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood right now and, let's face it, it has nothing to do with her talents. It's all about her constant appearance on the World Wide Web — and even she admits it!
"I think that the Internet has brought on a different kind of celebrity. We are very well aware of who we are, and what our place is," the reality star and businesswoman tells PaperMag.com. "We are so active on Twitter, on our Facebook pages — we are writing back, we are connecting. We enjoy it."
Like fellow Tweeter Ashton Kutcher, Kim believes connecting with her fans and friends over social media sites allows her to obtain that much more exposure — sometimes good and sometimes bad.
She's all about Tweeting, Instagramming and blogging, but when it comes to reading about herself on Google, Kim is not interested.
"I got rid of my old e-mail address, and they were on there," Kim says of the Google Alerts for her name. "It was the big question in my mind: Do I add my Google alert to my new e-mail? I haven't, and I just feel I have peace of mind now," she adds. "I would look at it all day long. It doesn't consume me. I hardly look on the Internet like I used to."
Nowadays, the only bad press she reads is the harsh comments from her haters on Twitter or Facebook, but reality TV's biggest star has a new way to deal with the negative feedback.
"I love writing them back. People will write me, 'My phone battery lasts longer than Kim Kardashian's marriage,' and I'll write back, 'Oh, which phone is that?'" Kim explains.
"When people are so stupid, you just have to have fun with it. Someone [without a profile photo] will say I'm fat, or a hairy Armenian, and I'll write back, 'Oh, that egg picture of yours is so gorgeous.'"
