Body confidence is short in demand in this day and age. Young girls are growing up wanting to have that amazing body and women are going under the knife and other extremes to create that illusion. Once I saw this post on IG I had to think twice. I believe Kim K is an amazing marketing tool and because she promotes something it will most likely sell. She has a great body. But she is not an idol, I don’t care how you got somewhere but it does matter how you maintain your position. She continously “sells” her body to keep her status because that is all she has. I don’t mind but when I see her name attached to something that she doesn’t represent, it irritates me. In my opinion, I don’t believe she has self – belief, she doesn’t use her power to help girls/women find their own confidence, to find themselves. Honestly, she seems to not have it herself, she is a puppet in the entertainment industry. She complains about her body constantly on KUWTK, so why are you trying to promote body confidence? Her “style” is initiated by Kanye. She didn’t dress like that before. Use Zoe Saldana, Khloe/Kourtney K, Beyoncé, Fergie, Miley Cyrus. . . . . These women constantly express how society warps our mind with what we should look like but they also express this is how they look and there is nothing wrong with that. Confidence and Empowerment goes hand in hand and I don’t believe Kim K should promote something she clearly states she doesn’t have. My friend is always promoting Lauren Hill, Aaliyah because they were always enforcing the improvement of self. But now we have to filter our minds to ensure we don’t fall prey to such idiocracies.
*this is not to knock any one down but simply my thoughts on an issue that I constantly see. To each it’s own.
