Who needed to be filled in on this one? Nothing on social media is authentic. You could try to be as real as possible and show everything, warts and all. But you’d still end up applying a filter to your colonoscopy. Even so, the Drag queen antagonist Keke Palmer finds herself irritated by girls like fake-ass Kylie Jenner with her engorged lips and her 96.2 MILLION Instagram followers. (Oh, big whoop. I’m sure Jonas Salk would have had that many if he was still alive.)
In an interview with Yahoo Beauty (via Huffington Post), Keke pointed out Kylie’s situation as an example of young girls torturing themselves to look perfect. Scream Queens just got cancelled, so Keke might have been in a mood.
Specifically in the situation with Kylie, where you’ve had a young girl people have seen on television since she was a kid and they literally told her she was so ugly … the ugly person in the family. She went and did apparently everything the world deems as beautiful. The even crazier part is that everybody loves her for it.
Was there a Very Special “Kylie, you so ugly” Episode of KUWTK? Hell, even I would have watched that one. Keke went on to note that the entire family engages in these practices.
In the sense of the Kardashians, it’s like I’m going to show you so much perfect and be everything a woman should be or everything a man would like or love. And I’m going to be exactly that so you can’t bully me anymore.
Keke feels that, ultimately, Kylie is showing the young girls that “you can be profitable for not being who you truly are.”
Well, yeah, we’re a desperate, vapid society terrified of poverty and obscurity and willing to emulate anyone lucky(?) enough to be born into the right circumstances (and have an insane money succubus for a mom) to get a leg up and profit from it. That family’s success hinged on a sex tape. A SEX TAPE. A pre-ass Kim listlessly effed a dude on camera and now she’s orbiting Oprah money. I guess we’re lucky that the young girls are trying to take after Kylie and “the model” one, and not the former urinal.
