Want to see a new low in tabloid ‘journalism’?
Take a look at the latest cover of NW magazine:
Kim Kardashian is apparently having a “body breakdown” because her “butt’s out of control.” Add that to the despicable cover line “Cellulite, stretch marks, sagging – oh my!” and it’s one of the crassest stories in the dubious history of tabloid magazines.
The magazine has also unintentionally demonstrated just how far removed mag land is from our our real lives. While the magazine was, presumably, going to press, Kim Kardashian released a statement calling out the tabloid press who openly body-shame her in order to ‘sell’ magazines. I say ‘sell’ because I don’t know anyone who’s buying into this Mean Girl magazine rubbish.
“Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you,” Kim Kardashian said in the statement. “I’m not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry!”
There’s a quote from editor of NW, Corrine Barraclough on the publisher’s website that reads: “The juiciest celeb gossip guaranteed to make you giggle. The best breaking news, the hottest celeb pics and star style on a budget. NW reveals the buzz on planet celeb – it’s Hollywood in your handbag!”
Point out perfectly normal parts of a woman’s appearance and body-shaming a celebrity who’s recently had a baby isn’t giggle-worthy it’s disgraceful.
