Kim Kardashian Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' March 2011
Here’s what the 30-year-old reality star, who also interviewed Elizabeth Taylor for the mag, had to share:
On having a head for business: “I would absolutely characterize myself as ambitious,” she says. She credits her late father, lawyer Robert Kardashian, with instilling a work ethic in her. “I put myself on a budget. My parents raised us saying that at 18, we’d be cut off,” she explains.
On filming her new show in NYC: “I worked out once. I gained like 10 pounds. All the papers were like, Kim’s pregnant! I ate the nuts on the street corner, the hot dogs, the street meat. It was not a joke.”
On filming her first music video with Kanye West: “I can carry a tune, yeah. I have a cute little voice. I talked to people in the business, and they said, ‘This is what we do for fun. You go to the movies, you go shopping, why don’t you try what we do?’” And with no less than West as a collaborator, Kim might yet be a hit. Has Kanye ever come courting? “We are good friends.”
