Kim Kardashian has jokingly suggested that she would be happy to “eat poop every single day” if it meant she could maintain her youthful appearance. The 41-year-old reality star made the comment in an interview with the New York Times to promote her new nine-step skincare brand SKKN.
- Kardashian would “try anything” to look young. While it’s clear the entire Kardashian clan has had plenty of work done on their appearance, Kim isn’t above going outside the cosmetic surgery route for help. “If you told me that I literally had to eat poop every single day and I would look younger, I might. I just might,” she joked.
- People couldn’t believe she said this. As soon as the article was published, people took to Twitter to express their shock and disgust at Kardashian’s joke. “I guess it doesn’t surprise me that Kim Kardashian said she would eat poop to stay young because I assume she has already done SOooooo much worse,” one user commented. Lest we forget the 2013 “vampire facial,” for starters.
- Kardashian is potentially feeling insecure because of her relationship with Pete Davidson. While she claims that he’s a wonderfully caring and supportive partner, he is 13 years her junior, and dating someone who’s 28 when you’re 41 can cause paranoia and insecurity. However, given Kardashian’s decades-long obsession with her appearance, the issues likely go deeper.
- Why can’t women see aging as a privilege? “In all seriousness, this is so unfortunate,” one Twitter user commented. “Let’s normalize not being afraid to age and grow old. The only reason you would want to be young forever is if you’re not satisfied with life, and that’s coming from someone so rich smh [sic]. money [does not equal] happiness.” It’s true that our culture glorifies youthfulness, but getting older is something all of us should be so lucky to experience. Why not do it gracefully?
