Kim Kardashian Says Her 'Talent' is Maintaining Her Brand

Kim Kardashian Says Her 'Talent' is Maintaining Her Brand

Kim Kardashian opened up about the pros and cons of living a public life on social media for an interview with 60 Minutes, which was conducted before her robbery in Paris earlier this month.

The 35-year-old reality star has not posted to social media or given an interview since the horrific incident, but the pre-taped interview aired during the CBS show on Sunday night (October 23).

In the interview, Kim admitted that she doesn’t think she would have the same career today without social media. “Not in this way. I totally attribute my career to social media,” she said. She also said, “I do believe that the pros in my situation and my lifestyle have been more beneficial than the negative things.”

When asked what her “talent” is, Kim said it is maintaining her brand and turning it into a $100 million business.

“It is a talent to have a brand that’s really successful off of getting people to like you for you,” she said. “I would think that has to involve some kind of talent, you know?”

    Nice shade from the JustJared team by writing “Talent” like that. You wouldn’t do that for another celebrity. There will be a lot of comments saying she doesn’t have any talent and make jokes about it, but then they don’t have an alleged 100 million dollar brand, or even the balls to make that statement as Kim does wether it’s true or not. It takes some sort of “talent” to get to where she is, a place where anybody who comments in a negative way here will never get to. And if you want to discuss what her “talent” is, let’s use JustJared as an example. This is a business, a brand, a successful brand, but I’m sure Jared and his readers/followers will say he made it this far because of his “talent”. But like people ask of Kim, what kind of “talent” do you need to buy photos, post them and write a very basic comment around them? This is not journalism, it’s not a newspaper, it’s a gossip blog. This is the exact reaction to Kim’s “talent”, and yet here JustJared is after all this time, being a succesful brand with something as stupid and useless as a sex video or an instagram post. Everybody has some sort of “talent”, the fact that many can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Her video, her pictures are one thing, but maintaining her fame and her “brand”, like this gossip site, it takes a lot of…yes…”talent”. Otherwise she would’ve faded after half a season of her show 10 years ago.

    The Kardashians are pathetic. Sickens me the fame one gets for an amateur home video of her on back. The attention whore who knows no talent.

    Has 60 minutes jump the shark? Why is 60 minutes interviewing her. They would not interview a porn star or prostitute who uses her body (talent) to turn her brand into a 100 million dollar business.

  • rocknmovie

    Her “talent”: her huge butt…

  • Will

    Her brand is *hore and I have to admit she has maintained her “brand”.

  • Truvey Taylor

    God, I feel bad for saying it but her face is silly putty. But I also feel bad for having to see it so much.

  • Michele V

    She has a team who does that for her. So effectively she does nothing.

  • bbm

    and that’s a surgeon’s talent

  • bbm

    she’s just lucky there’s people n this world as dumb as she is that follow her

  • Douglas from Brazil

    I find it funny people criticizing the Kardashians. If a “talent” made her 100 millions dollars so imagine if a talent could make. Whether or you like her or not, they’re still wealthy and don’t care what people think of her.

  • Loather

    This is the joke of the year.

  • Kim Smith

    Not posting anything is just building her case that she was robbed and is now terrified. I think this is a part of her insurance claim. I don’t believe the jewelry is missing, I think it’s an insurance came and then she can have the money for it and the jewels. This is how rich people roll at a certain point they stop paying for anything, ask Donald. Keep it up Kim. This is your best acting yet.
