Kim Kardashian: Reality TV "Reminds Me of Rap Music”

Kim Kardashian's romance with Kanye West has led to roller coaster photos, a new wardrobe courtesy of Kanye and the rapper's latest track "Perfect Bitch." As the duo spend more time together, West's influence seems to be pervading every aspect of Kardashian's life. After presumably listening to Boogie Down Productions' Criminal Minded and studying Krush Groove frame-by-frame, Kim is now qualified to speak on the comparisons between reality TV and hip hop.

In a recent interview with V Magazine (via Hip-Hop Wired), the reality star said, "It’s always funny to me when people say that I’m famous for being famous. I think it’s fascinating, because it’s still entertainment, you know?...I’m not naïve to the fact that I’m not a singer or an actress or anything like that. I’ve never claimed to be anything that I’m not. I think [reality] is still a new form of entertainment that was kind of an unexpected thing. It reminds me of rap music.”

Go on, Kim.

"When rap music first came out, people were like, We don’t understand this, what is this, it’s just a fad. But rap music is definitely here to stay, and I think reality shows have proven they are as well. But when something is newer, people don’t really understand it.”

How far are we from Kim hopping on a Kanye track spitting a West-written verse? It's when, not if.
