Say anything you will about them, but deep down, you just have to admit you can’t stop watching them. If Keeping Up With The Kardashians is your guilty pleasure, you don’t have to be embarrassed about it, because you’re not alone!
There’s a whole family empire of ladies whose names start with K, and it’s something we’ve all heard before. Let’s take a moment to congratulate Kim for that, by the way. Try searching “Kardashian” on Google, and all of her social media accounts show up in the results right after the KUWTK show. Dubbed “the tabloid queen,” and deservedly so, she’s the one who started it all and made her family name well-known across the universe.
No matter how much people diss them, there’s no doubt that their lives are to die for! Who wouldn’t want to go to trips to Miami, have their own retail store, pose for brands, and get to own the latest (and most expensive) things in the market? They’re definitely living the dream! You’re not delusional. We all wish for something even remotely close to that. And if you want to so badly, then you’re in for a treat:
• ATTRACT ATTENTION TO YOURSELF
In this digital day and age, making yourself popular is just a matter of choosing the right platform and social media tactic. You don’t have to go overdramatic. Don’t tell me you’ve forgotten about YouTube, Instagram, or even blogging? A lot of famous people got discovered by being put into the spotlight by the news—hello, Kim K—and if you gain enough head turners, you’re well on your way!
• TELEVISION IS STILL IN
X Factor, The Voice, and even Big Brother: these shows are all about exposure! (May we mention One Direction while we’re at it?) If you’ve got what it takes to be on the other side of the big screen, then go for it. The Kardashians are certainly getting a kick out of KUWTK. Social media may be powerful, but so is TV. Lights, camera, action!
• CALL FOR BACKUP
It’s a small world, after all. Your friend could know someone in the biz and hook you up. Sometimes, you have to get the ball rolling for you if a high profile is what you want. Just like Kendall, who for sure worked her way up the model ring, she had to have pulled some magic because of her magic name. But it’s nothing to be ashamed of! So have the courage and be bold—who knows, you might just be the next mega pop singer, supermodel, or TV personality everyone’s going to obsess about next.
No matter which route you choose or the degree of popularity you want to achieve, you can do it as long as you have the guts to take the first step. Just look at these sisters who each have their own personality to set them apart, but a common star quality (or last name) to bring attention.
