@PiersMorgan - In Defence of Kim K And Her Nude Photos #BreakTheInternet

Posted in: , ,

@PiersMorgan has just made a shocking confession. He admits, "I like and admire Kim Kardashian-West." Coming a day after the reality TV star tried to break the internet with nude photos shot for a Paper Magazine cover and spread, he's among the few who support Kim at this time.

But Piers says his admiration didn't start with ogling her ass. He's just written a piece for the UK Daily Mail where he reveals that he first met and liked Kim from years ago, after a CNN interview. He also slams her haters as "lazy, snide, snobbish, patronising and hypocritical critics", and said they "can go kiss Kim’s while she'll be laughing all the way to the bank.

Piers post was not well received as you might imagine, with many thinking he's just playing devil's advocate or metaphorically kissing Kim's ass himself. His tweet about the post was barely retweeted a hundred times, compared to some of his other tweets that get thousands of RTs

So how can one defend Kim Kardashian? In my opinion, Piers made very good points, that has made me even look at Kim with new eyes.

On the unnecessary hate that Kim gets on a regular basis since her sex tape days, and her ability to get over it;

Predictably, the abuse and ridicule began to pour in as fast as the gasps of shock, awe and admiration.
Ms Kardashian-West was apparently a ‘slut’, a ‘terrible mom’, a ‘disgrace to the human race,’ ‘a dumb, trashy b***h’ etc.

Of course, she’s heard it all before, ever since that sex tape was leaked and propelled her into the kind of instant, gigantic cyberspace notoriety that can either crush a woman or make her so strong and impervious to criticism that she builds a $1 billion brand.

Kim’s in the latter category and people hate her for it. They resent her global fame, her immense wealth, her marriage to one of the world’s most brilliant music icons. Above all, they loathe her resolute refusal to bow to all the bitter venom that spews its way in her direction.

On his perception of Kim's personality, her humility and self-awareness;

I interviewed her soon after I joined CNN and found her to be a warm, unpretentious, honest and rather charming young lady.
When I mockingly asked her to name a single talent she possessed, she smiled knowingly and made no attempt to cite one.

But then she thought about it more and said: ‘Actually, I think being an entrepreneur is a skill, marketing is a skill, and so is fashion designing. My sisters and I are smart enough to understand that having a successful reality TV show is just a platform for people to get to know us on a personal level.

‘But for us, we’ve always been about the business – selling our fragrances, shoe lines, clothes. And we’ve always been about hard work.’

On Kim accepting herself as a role model and giving to charity;

As for her roundly condemned status as a role model, she told me with calm conviction: ‘I think I promote a healthy, natural body image.’

She admitted to using Botox, Spanx and the odd piece of masking tape to aid the daunting red carpet process. But she insisted she’d never had plastic surgery, and was happy and confident with how she looks.

I have studied her face close up and seen nothing to contradict this; Kim’s a natural beauty. She also revealed she gives away 10% of her income to charity. That, as you can imagine, is a lot of money.

On the seeming gap between how Kim is regarded compared to other female stars;

When Keira Knightley stripped topless recently, she explained it was strictly to make a protest against air-brushing. Hmmm.

When Rihanna, Madonna or Beyonce gyrate their booties on stage, it’s done in the name of ‘art’.
When all the supermodels got their kit off for PETA, it was excused under the banner of ‘helping the animals’ .

When Demi Moore posed naked and pregnant, it was applauded, not castigated, because she’s a great actress and the photo appeared on the cover of prestigious Hollywood bible, Vanity Fair.

When Chelsea Handler does it, which seems to be every day at the moment to diminishing laws of aesthetic return, it’s heralded as ‘comedy genius’.

But when Kim Kardashian-West does it, in a photo session conducted by highly acclaimed French photographer Jean-Paul Goude, she is lambasted.

On the often overlooked good points of Kim Kardashian

... she survives and thrives because millions of young people around the world find her both real and someone they can relate to. They appreciate that she’s got a very smart eye for business, fashion, television and social media. And an even smarter eye for self-publicity and nurturing her brand.

Kim doesn’t take drugs, get drunk, fall out of clubs, cheat on her man, or do any of the other insanely louche things that stars with far greater ‘talent’ often do.

She works ridiculously hard, is good to her fans, and is by all accounts a good, loving daughter, sister, wife and now mom herself.

On how Kanye's love for Kim may be more important than we know;

She was also, lest we forget, pursued, wooed, and won by a genius who professes (and I believe him) to love Kim for her mind as much as her coveted body.

Kanye West’s reaction to this wife’s latest controversial cover photo was to simply tweet this: #ALLDAY. We knew what he meant.

On how Kim can make fun of herself;

As she herself tweeted: ‘And they say I don’t have talent – try balancing a champagne glass on your ass! LOL.’

I laughed out loud at that comment, just as I did when I first saw these new photos. She’s a cheeky little minx at the top of her game.
