Look, I really don’t believe anyone when they announce a fresh new apocalypse theory, so of course I don’t believe the world is going to end in 2012 because some convenient numbers and scientifically-baseless superstition say so (people have tried this bit almost 30 times now, and not one of them has panned out.) That being said, if Kim Kardashian can make $60,000 just to show up at a club and make duck-faces at a camera at the stroke of midnight, I wouldn’t mind all that much if some end of the world shit went down. But only a little. TMZ reports:
Kim Kardashian seems to be getting over her failed, very short marriage … at least for an evening. She closed out 2011 by hosting a New Year’s Eve party at TAO nightclub in Las Vegas last night. There are reports that Kim, who arrived in Vegas via private jet, raked in $60,000 for the gig. Kim’s mom Kris was front and center … and Mark Ballas was there in case she decided to break out and dance. Thankfully, she didn’t.
Look, I know people like to be around famous people, even if they’ve proven time and time again that they have no talent or charm or charisma (seriously: Kim’s de facto speaking voice is “ironically detached baby”) but come on, who in their right mind would give Kim $60,000 just to be her normal, uninteresting self? But I guess if anything, this does teach kids the importance of being yourself. Because one day, if you’re awful enough, a TV studio will offer you your own TV show, and you can get paid to do absolutely nothing but be you! By which we mean a modified version of you that tests well with audiences aged 25-40.
