It seems like every mother’s mission in life is to forever embarass her kid — Hi mom! I love you! — but Kim Kardashian has taken that mandate one step further. The reality star, who has made a career out of simply being famous, and her baby daddy, Kanye West, decided it was a fantastic idea to pose nude, faux-mid-coitus, on a French magazine cover. And said magazine thought it was a fantastic idea to actually let them! And so, the horrendous nightmare above was allowed to come to fruition. Congratulations, L’Officiel Hommes, you have just fed the ever-growing fire that is Kimye.
As soon as you’re finished vomiting out of disgust (go ahead, we’ll wait…), let’s all take a moment of silence for the dignity of both Kardashian, West, and their unborn fetus. I mean, seriously? Who thought this was a good idea? True, Kardashian did get her “career” started via a sex tape (and maybe that’s all she’s good at?), but this is just all kinds of wrong.
Naked pregnant women portraits are classy in the eyes of some, tacky in the eyes of others, but this is a whole new level of terrible. There’s no ambiguity here — Kardashian and West are simulating having sex, and that’s some declasse stuff right there. Were they going for a, “Hey [insert son or daughter’s name here], this is how you were made!” kind of statement? That’s like telling someone to imagine their grandparents going at it. You just. Don’t. Do. That.
You could rant on and on about how this is just Kardashian’s latest ploy at getting attention (because, duh, it is), but that’s what the entirety of her career is based on. Haven’t we spent enough time debating why on Earth she’s famous and why she’s able to make insane amounts of money for doing pretty much nothing? It’s not like anything will change. She’ll just keep doing stunts like the above photo, and we’ll just keep writing about them. The cycle never ends.
Let’s just hope for her unborn baby’s sake that he or she never learns how to use Google. Poor thing.
