Why Kim Kardashian is Famous?
Kim Kardashian West (born Kimberly Noel Kardashian, October 21, 1980) is an American reality television personality, socialite, businesswoman and model. Kardashian first gained media attention as a friend and stylist of Paris Hilton.
Love her or hate her, Kim Kardashian is never far from the headlines, all the while building a whole media empire on the back of her backside. Yes, detractors allege that she’s only famous because of the infamous leaked sex tape. But rather than let it ruin her life, she embraced the notoriety, turned up her ambition to 11, and maneuvered her way to being one of the world’s most famous and influential women. She may not have cured cancer, but who in Hollywood has? She breaks the internet every time she posts a selfie; her TV show is now in its 12th season, and her recent Kimojiemoji extension proved that Kim Kardashian: Hollywood wasn’t the end of her app-store reign.
FACT: Before becoming famous, Kim Kardashian ran a business revamping the closets of celebrities.
Time Magazine included Kardashian on their list of 2015’s 100 most influential people, while Vogue described her in 2016 as a “pop culture phenomenon.”
