Kim Kardashian of Keeping Up With the Kardashians may be a household name – and a star in her own right – but she won’t be getting her own star on the infamous Hollywood Walk of Fame anytime soon. And, in a turn of events that should surprise no one, boyfriend and baby daddy Kanye West is not too happy about it.
Here’s the official comment from Ana Martinez, a spokesperson for the Walk and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce: “We don’t have reality stars on the Walk of Fame. We don’t have a category for it. We’re happy to consider reality stars once they get nominated for, or win, an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar. We’ll consider them when they’re legitimate actors or singers.”
To any normal person with even a modicum of common sense, this would be perfectly understandable. Kanye West, however, does not understand. Of course he’s not exactly a normal person either – he is the biggest rock star on the planet, remember? And his common sense is probably debatable too, as displayed by his recent attack on a paparazzo and his hilarious feud with Jimmy Kimmel.
Regardless, the guy is not happy that his leading lady isn’t getting the leading lady treatment from the folks at the Walk, and he opened up about it to none other than Jimmy Kimmel during his October 9th appearance on the show. In his interview with the late night host, Kanye said the people in charge of the Walk of Fame were “so so dated and not modern” for not letting his Keeping Up with the Kardashians girlfriend have a star. Ooh, he called them dated. That’s right, hit them where it hurts, ‘Ye.
The spokesperson from the Walk concluded her explanation of why Kim Kardashian doesn’t qualify for a star by saying, “I hate to say it, but a lot of people just don’t like her. No one has ever nominated her.”
I think that settles it.
