Kim Kardashian has a lot more to say than most people think. However, the reality star’s interview with NPR is leaving a bad taste in some listeners mouths. Kim Kardashian talked about all of the pregnancy rumors that have been surrounding her. She was also grilled on the more important issues that have been affecting the rest of the world.
After Kim Kardashian, 34, confirmed on the Season 10 midseason finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she was expecting her second child, fans have been wondering if she will name her child South West. Kardashian was the surprise guest for Saturday’s installment of “Not My Job” during the Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me! show. This segment usually quizzes celebrities and other successful people to see if they’re knowledgeable on a certain topic. During her Saturday interview with NPR, Kardashian revealed that she hates the name “South West.”
“I don’t like South West, though, because that’s like, you know, North will always, you know, be better and more … she has a better direction. So I wouldn’t do that. I don’t think we’ll go with another direction. I mean, everyone keeps on saying South and I think it’s so stupid. Stupidest thing ever and just ridiculous.”
As previously reported via the Inquisitr, Kim also stuck to topics that had meaning for her, like wearing Spanx and flat shoes during her pregnancy, and the reason why she released a book of selfies. Kardashian also quashed those reports that claimed she already knew the sex of the baby. She told the news station that she is not having twins and she does not know the sex of her and Kanye West’s baby.
“We actually haven’t told anyone the sex. So I heard that we’re having a boy. I heard that we’re having twins. I heard that I’m not even carrying my own baby. I’ve heard so many things and most of that information is not true.”
Kim Kardashian even got slammed by listeners when she got quizzed about Kim Jong Un. The game called “Keeping Up With Kim Jong Kardashian” was about Kim Jong II’s infamous nicknames and slogans, and about world laws. Kardashian had to guess one of the three choices correctly in each of the three rounds. Unfortunately for her, she only got one round correct and got a hint to actually win — and that was one of the easier questions!
Most of the NPR listeners were turned off by the silly segment, as reported via the Gossip Cop. Having Kardashian on the show talking about mindless topics and not knowing about world issues left a bad taste in their mouths. There were almost two dozen comments on the “Wait Wait” official website slamming the news station for having Kardashian as a guest on the show.
One person wrote, “I love this show and listen to it every week, but I was disappointed in them for putting her on the radio.”
It sounds like NPR listeners don’t need Kim Kardashian’s celebrity to care about the important issues. They already do. That’s not stopping other news sites from making Kim Kardashian’s booty as big as world news. According to Newsweek, The Big A** News website was created June 7, 2015. It’s a news aggregator site that features world news headlines and Kim Kardashian’s famous butt. It also features Kardashian’s butt with the headlines.
The news site, created by Carl Larsson and Jennifer Garcia, is used as a “cultural wake-up call an immensely accurate grasp of the attention span of America.”
Larsson added that The Big A** News isn’t associated with the Kardashian family. He explained why he wanted to use the star’s infamous behind.
“The idea is simple: Kim Kardashian’s ass gets more attention than important world issues. So we wanted to use that ‘huge platform’ that Kim Kardashian has in the media to spread awareness for news we should pay attention to as a global community.”
