Since going public with their relationship, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West continue to make their press rounds and land headlines about their budding “romance.” This has to be one of the first times a celebrity couple tries so hard to make everyone else believe they have a legitimate relationship. But can anyone be surprised? Both Kim and Kanye have proven themselves to live for attention, and generate publicity at the expense of others in the form of quickie 72 day marriages and rudely interrupted award acceptance speeches. They are the couple everyone loves to hate, but it’s hard to escape their publicity whoring clutches when they manage to make the blogs daily with their latest and very orchestrated photo opts and plugged gossip blog rumors at the hands of the very clever Kris Jenner and press savvy Kim Kardashian.
And there’s no escaping them, even in the realms of the Social Networks. These two are always on and they need you to know that.
In a series of recent tweets, most of the Twitter universe vomited in their mouths…a little:
Kanye promptly answered with a series of professionally shot “couple” photos:
No matter how many photos or tweets these two initiate regarding their “relationship,” I just can’t take them seriously. And that’s for a couple of reasons:
1. Kim is still married. And it seems like she does the same thing in all of her relationships. She takes plenty of couple photo shoots, tweets like a smitten 12 year old every time she’s in a relationship, and behaves like relationships are only meant to keep her relevant in the media.
2. Kanye is just as calculated. Who else takes a bald headed former stripper out the ghetto, dresses her like a barbie doll, and discards her like some prop on a play that went bad once the public loses interest? Why must he treat every woman he dates publicly like a toy? Doesn’t that make him childish?
Both tend to use their “relationships” for career reasons, and the proof is in all the former photo shoots they had with their last boos. It seems like genuine couples in Hollywood do the exact opposite. Expect these two stunt queens to take it a step further and get married. Either way, everything they continue to do will be completely for career reasons. How long it lasts depends on the benefits received.
