Kardashians Manipulate the Media

The minute I saw this article, I was interested. Not just because I love the Kardashians, but because we just read an essay in our patterns book about "fame-iness." Even though I do like the Kardashians, I can honestly say that I don't believe they have any real talent. They use the media and tabloids to attract attention and receive publicity. (I kinda felt deja-vu when I was reading this article because it was just like the Fame-iness essay...) This particular article is about Kanye West's ex-girlfriend, Amber Rose, bad-mouthing Kim Kardashian. Kanye supposedly cheated on Amber with Kim Kardashian. Amber said that the Kardashians "manipulate the media" into believing what they want them to believe.

The author of this article seems to be on Amber Rose's side. The author writes that Amber explained her relationship with Kanye West as a "wild ride" and uses the example of the 2009 MTV Music Awards when Kanye rudely interrupted Taylor Swift. I think it was a good idea for the author to include this event in the article because everyone know's about it. Everyone heard what had happened and everyone was against Kanye. I feel like this article was aimed at music fans and people who pay attention to entertainment news. This is because the author does not include a lot of detail about who Amber Rose is, and she is not a normal household name. I feel bad for Amber, and I feel bad that she had to deal with Kanye West. Kanye does not have a reputation of being a nice guy, and this was proved to the world at the music awards in 2009. 


  1. What he did at the music awards was terrible! I don't follow the Kardashians, but I've never heard of any talent they have. Nice job.

  2. I agree that the Kardashians have no talent.. at all. I don't think they deserve the fame and especially not the money. They're kind of like Paris Hilton. Famous for being famous. Nice post!
