8 Things Nobody Knows About Kim Kardashian
Lately, Kim Kardashian has been everywhere. You can’t turn on the TV or open a magazine without her popping up. Whether it’s about the latest scandal and drama related to her family or glorifying her style, people simply can’t shut up about her. The truth is, whether we like it or not, Kim K is one of the biggest stars today. But even though she is a reality star and her life is pretty much out in the open, there are some things kept under the radar that not many people know.
1. She used to hang out with MJ’s family.
Kim used to date one of Michael Jackson’s nephews when she was a teenager. This earned her the privilege to celebrate her sweet 14 at the Neverland Ranch. While normal teenagers have to wait for their big birthday bash until they turn 16, Kim was lucky to party at “the most magical place on earth” two years earlier and she was overwhelmed. She said that the Ranch was one of the best memories of her childhood. Way to go Kim, making useful connections so early in life.
2. She collects vintage fashion magazines.
Now it all starts to make sense. Kim K draws inspiration for her style from vintage fashion magazines she collects. As it turns out, Kim is just obsessed with Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. So much so, that her hobby is collecting old issues of these magazines. We knew Kim was crazy about fashion, but we didn’t know she was such a religious fan. However, Kim’s most favorite issue is probably the one featuring her.
3. She makes $10,000 per tweet.
While the rest of us mortals have to earn our money the old-fashioned way, you know, actually working, Kim just types a tweet and she’s already earned $10,000. That’s, like, two Louis Vuitton handbags. Unlike us, however, Kim gets paid for mentioning a product. So whenever a company wants Kim to promote their products, they pay a lot of money to her to mention it on Twitter. Not bad for only a few seconds of her time.
4. She was the most googled celebrity in 2008 and 2011.
Kim is not only shoved in our face by the media, we are asking for it, literally. The fact is that people want to know more about Kim and her extravagant family and that’s why the media puts so much emphasis on them. And the proof – the numbers from 2008 and 2011 when Kim topped everybody else as the most googled celebrity out there. Last year, she was beaten by Jennifer Lawrence but we’ll see what happens this year.
5. She worked as a “closet organizer”.
Do you know that feeling when your enormous walk-through closet gets all crammed and messy? Yeah, us neither, but there are numerous rich ladies in Hollywood who really hate it when this happens. Well, Kim used to be a closet-organizing specialist. She started from her godmother’s closet and then the word of her skills got out. After that, stars like Serena Williams and Cindy Crawford sought her services. Lindsay Lohan even went a step further and hired Kim to be her personal stylist.
6. She has been married three times.
Everyone knows about Kris Humphries and Kanye West because these marriages were much publicized. But Kim had actually been married once before. When she was just 19, Kim got married to music producer Damon Thomas. They split up three years later. Kim later admitted that she suffered extreme physical and mental violence from Thomas. He demanded to know where she was at all times and didn’t let her hang out with friends. Luckily, Kim escaped that hell and is much better off without him.
7. She has a special hair routine.
Since the paparazzi are following Kim every day and wherever she goes, she wants to make sure she looks flawless and fresh all the time. That’s why she has a routine when it comes to her hairstyle. In order to look different, Kim follows a four-day pattern which she constantly repeats. On the first day she does a regular blowout. On the second day she adds dry shampoo for texture. The third day is reserved for straightening and the fourth day for a sleek look with a ponytail or bun.
8. Her favorite movie is The Notebook.
In a way, Kim K is all of us. Girls, at least. Her favorite movies are Clueless and The Notebook which basically tops every girl’s favorite movie list. We just love to be reminded that celebrities are just like us and like the same things, even the glamorous Kim. We bet she drools over Ryan Gosling as well. At least she did before she was happily married to Kanye.
