Kim Kardashian: Professional Celebrity

Kim Kardashian can be thought of as a “professional celebrity”.  C. Wright Mills explains “one type of celebrity, is a professional of it, earning sizeable income not only from working in, but virtually living on, the mass media of communication and distraction” (p74).  On her show Keeping up with the Kardasians, Kim is always ranting about certain things the media says and trying to prove them wrong.  For example, on one episode, Kim was determined to prove to the public that her butt was real so she got an x-ray.  She is completely consumed in this “celebrity” life full of gossip.
