11 Genuinely Interesting Things We Learned About Kim Kardashian From Her Latest Interview

Her thoughts on everything from feminism to Donald Trump.

Posted on

Kim Kardashian is on the cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia this month, channelling her ultimate fashion icon, fellow Armenian powerhouse Cher. And the interview is full of very interesting details.

1. She refuses to apologise for being a mom AND being sexy.

She said: "More power to the moms that look really good, work really hard, do what they can so that they still feel sexy, still feel good about themselves. I don’t think for a second that because you become a mom you can’t be sexy any more.”

2. She has a lot of thoughts on Donald Trump.

When asked who she thinks should be in the White House, she quipped: "Not the President now. Anyone can run the US better. My daughter would be better."

She went on to say she feels Trump is driving the country backwards: "We've worked so hard to get to where we were and to have so many things that we were so proud of in our country, to just literally revert backwards is the most frustrating thing.

"Every single day when you can't really believe what's going on, the next day it's something else even more crazy and tragic. It’s really scary, the world that we’re living in now. And when you did feel safe at home, now with Trump in presidency you just don’t feel safe any more.”

3. She also refuses to follow him on Twitter.

But she does still follow Obama.


4. She wishes social media wasn't so negative.


Kim said she's already "worried" for the time when her children want to start using social media, because it "doesn't seem like the safest space". She went on to say that "no matter what you do, you're so judged on social media."

5. Kim also thinks social media isn't reflective of people's real lives.


She said social media is a way for people to "make their lives look so amazing" when it's all a façade. She went on to say that Instagram should be about "whatever makes you happy" and not an attempt to compete with other people.

7. Kim believes that she's finally found her trademark style, saying streetwear "makes her feel good".

8. She works hard to instil a strong work ethic in her kids.

She said if she were to retire now, she'd become a stay-at-home mother, but she wants her kids to have a "really strong work ethic" by seeing how "motivated" both their parents are.

9. She's looking for ways to impart her business knowledge to other women.

Kim's currently in talks with her hairstylist Jen Atkin and Dubai-based beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan to host a "girl boss cruise or retreat to give advice to girls looking to start their own businesses".

11. And, finally, she feels "in her soul" that she's a feminist.

A year ago, Kim revealed that she doesn't consider herself a feminist because she "doesn't like labels". However, she's revised her position slightly now.

She said: "I said once before that I'm not really a feminist. But I feel I do a lot more than people that claim they're feminist. To clarify what I said before: I feel in my soul I'm a feminist. I just don't need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside."
