Kim Kardashian has once again shown how oblivious she is to real-world expectations of beauty standards and is facing backlash for her out of touch views.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star spoke with an interviewer from Allure recently, who asked her if she felt “responsible, even guilty, for setting an unrealistic, unattainable beauty standard.”
Kardashian, however, didn’t see it that way, telling the magazine, “If I’m doing it, it’s attainable.”
“There are so many different beauty standards — whether it’s Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Marilyn Monroe. When I was a teenager, [the look] was just blonde waifs,” she went on. “My mentality was never like, you see them on TV or in magazines and pick who you want to be. It was always: Be yourself, find beauty in everything.”
Later on in the interview, the beauty mogul insisted once again that she’s never had major cosmetic surgery done, beyond Botox in her face. She said she hasn’t even had eyelash extensions.
“I really, genuinely care about looking good,” Kardashian then said. “I probably care more than 90% of the people on this planet. It’s not easy when you’re a mom and you’re exhausted at the end of the day or you’re in school, and I’m all of the above. I do my beauty treatments usually late at night. After everyone’s in bed, I’m doing laser treatments.”
Kardashian also referenced her June 2022 New York Times interview where she said she would eat poop if she was told it would make her look younger.
“I was kind of joking, but now that I think about it, I would probably eat shit if someone told me, ‘If you eat this bowl of poop every single day, you’ll look younger.’”
