The Kardashian Empire

“In the world of celebrity, the hierarchy of publicity has replaced the hierarchy of decent and even of great wealth.” -C. Wright Mills (73)

Think publicity and more than likely you will think Kardashians. The Kardashians, yes every single one of them, have had more publicity than probably any other public figure in the last two years. They are everywhere-gracing the covers of magazines, staring in popular reality television shows, putting out clothing lines, and scents, you name it! They are an empire that just keeps growing. Kourtney has recently confirmed the news of another baby, just as the news of Kim’s divorce to basketball star dies down. They are full of publicity stunts, and you better believe that this is just the beginning. Younger step-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner are making their way into the limelight and I’m sure it won’t be long until they fall right into the footsteps of their older sisters, Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim! Their publicity is causing them to become the epitome of the word celebrity.

Tebow Says He Needs To Get Better

Despite having a 4-1 record, Tim Tebow says he needs to get better. In a radio interview earlier this week, Vice President of football operations for the Broncos, John Elway, said he still doesn’t know if the Broncos have their franchise quarterback on their roster. Elway said this is because of the Broncos lack of success on third downs and passing despite the wins. Tebow agreed with this and says he must improve and get better.
