There are many things I’ll never have in common with Kim Kardashian West.
For starters, she drives a Ferrari, while I catch the bus. She has her own iconic reality television show, while I have Instagram Stories. She has millions of dollars in the bank and I have a bowl of spare coins at my front door. She has a love of nude selfies, whereas I spend large periods of my days dreaming of how great living a life in a slightly more chic version of a nun’s habit would be.
But, in a turn I didn’t expect this week, it just so happens that we have one major thing in common other than a love of Kanye West, and it’s cellulite.
Or, more specifically, bum cellulite.
Released around the world on Tuesday were images of the 36-year-old on holiday in Mexico with her older sister Kourtney Kardashian, and in them, we see Kardashian West loudly and proudly displaying her “flawed” behind (Piers Morgan’s description of her assets, not mine), wearing a g-string bikini bottom and smiling gleefully towards the cameras.
(Mamamia does not publish paparazzi images. As such, those wishing to look can find the photos here.)
And while it’s not known if Kardashian West staged the paparazzi photos, it’s clear she knew about the photographer’s presence and that she was more than okay with it because in some images she can be seen looking directly into the lens and smiling.
And for someone who has built an empire on her flawlessness and unattainable beauty, this is a big deal. It marks a new era in the public entity that is Kim Kardashian West.
Listen: Of all the Kardashian shows out there, The Binge has a big problem with this one. Post continues…
Since being released, countless media outlets have attached shameful headlines to the pictures and many a social commentator has had their say on what we should think.
