Kim Kardashian has stolen my Halloween costume idea, leopard. What can I say, the girl has good taste. The difference between me and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is that noone gives a shit about my Halloween costume choices. Actually I’m second guessing it because someone is going to say “did you dress up like a leopard because of Kim Kardashian?”. Because clearly, the world revolves around her, she’s headline news.
Kim’s pending Halloween costume decision was on the front page of the Huffington Post (view story here). The reaction, a slew of “she’s so needy for attention, I feel sorry for her”, but the most common class of comments “is this really news?” It’s newsworthiness may be in question, but it’s popularity is not because more people commented on Kim’s Sexy Halloween Costume story than they did the Koch Brothers Sending Pro-Romney Mailing to Employees story.
Huffington Post‘s front page is made up of the top stories of the day. Kim Kardashian is a very public figure and her Halloween costume selection is popular therefore making it a top story. We live in a society where people like to be entertained as much as they like to be informed. Kim Kardashian is famous for being famous and the more people hate her for it, the more she benefits. Talk about irony. As the saying going, it doesn’t matter what they’re saying, just as long as they’re talking about you.
