“You can say a lot of things about me, but you can’t say I don’t work hard” – Kim blasts critics
She’s one of the world’s most famous women, with the power to influence millions, thanks to her huge social media following.
And while many might bemoan her wealth and A-List lifestyle, given she’s best known for her E! reality series, and far humbler beginnings, Kim Kardashian has defied anyone to call her work shy.
Posing for a vividly retro shoot with Interview magazine, the 36-year-old influencer and reality Queen challenged anyone to doubt her work ethic and call her “lazy” in a candid chat, though she readily admits she’s not got any traditional talents.
Speaking to Janet Mock, Kim addresses one of the charges often fired at her family – a lack of talent. Speaking frankly she admits her short-comings, but also says no one can doubt her work effort as she taked a defiant swipe at her critics.
“You can say a lot of things about me, but you cannot say I don’t work hard. I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I don’t act. But I am not lazy,” Kim states.
“I used to say, ‘I love being underestimated’. But now when I hear, ‘They’re so not talented,’ – ten years into it – I’m kind of like, ‘Okay, give a girl a little respect.’
If I’m so not talented, if I do nothing, then how is my career my reality? And I poke fun at it, like when I was on the cover of Forbes I posted the hashtag #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent.
I don’t mind being underestimated because it does fuel me.” She snarkily adds: “But after a while, I do feel like, ‘C’mon, you can recognize a little bit.'”
