    Did you really have to ruin everyone's end of 2012 with this "news" ? To quote Nancy Kerrigan, "WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY??????" :p

    So, does this mean she will want her divorce to go through now?

    Where did we get to this place in life where people who have no personal talent or attributes attain the same level of recogntion by the press as seasoned actors, musicians, comedians, etc.

    Makes me wanna cry ...

    I knew she'd do someone/something before the end of the year. She didn't have enough publicity in 2012. ;)

    Well, Kim probably doesn't want Kate Middleton to grab all those pregnancy headlines. Afterall, wasn't Kim's weddings supposed to bigger than Will and Kate's?

    Sick to death of anything starting with a K myself - and in fact in some corners she actually gets more press that the others you mention - my FB page is filled with every breathless detail today thanks to the magazines I follow :rolleyes: - but it's worth noting that this is nothing new.

    People of no talent or attributes have been making the news for centuries - debutantes, society types, people with minor/obscure titles, heirs/heiresses, hostesses etc. The only difference now is that instead of being confined to the society and fashion pages of newspapers and magazines like Hello and Town & Country and supermarket tabloids - all easy to avoid - we now have 24/7 news channels and websites that are desperate (apparently very much so) for content, plus FB, Twitter and all the other social media and celebrity-driven blogs.

    Really? And you think Kim Kardashian's the one without class and who's hungry for attention? This is one of the most classless posts I've seen on this forum in a while, and that's saying a lot.

    Then why are you wasting your time posting about her? Obviously, you're not that sick of her. Is it a look at me, look at how smart I am because I don't like the Kardashians, because if you really didn't care at all, surely you and every other poster in this thread who could "care less" about Kim would let it sink to the bottom of the fourth page of this forum.


    Congrats to Kim on her pregnancy.

    Since you've directed this rather bitchy comment to me, I must correct you. I wasn't posting about Kim Kardashian; I was commenting on the concept of celebrity in history, and media's role in creating celebrity. I opened this thread specifically because that is the topic that interests me, and I was curious to see how FSUers were reacting to the news.

    I hope no one pays attention to her pregnancy except for her doctor and maybe her mother.

    Give us credit for a little brains. "Sick to death of anything starting with a K myself -." is commenting on the concept of celebrity in history, and media's role in creating celebrity? Sure.

    I guess I'm the only one who thinks it'll be interesting to see what kind of father Kanye is. :shuffle: And how it'll affect his music.

    Taylor Swift can write a song called "You're a Father Now" and make it about Kanye.

    I'm sure a small army of nannies will do the actual work, but I actually think these two will be good parents. Kim becoming a parent doesn't strike fear in me the way news of Paris Hilton becoming mother would.

    I dunno. Someone who treats her wedding as an opportunity for TV and as a $$$$ grab, and then when the relationship ends treats that as an opportunity for $$$ interviews about her "heartbreak", doesn't strike me as the most mature and balanced parent-to-be on the planet.

    I just hope that everyone who wants to give her a baby gift remembers what happens with the wedding gifts she decided not to keep, i.e. she sent the givers a letter saying that she was giving the present to charity, and then kept the tax receipts for the donations for herself.

    Imagine the :argue: that's going to go on with Kim Kardashian's PR people and Jessica Simpson's PR people, trying to outdo each other in $elling pregnancy stories.....

    I think the most interesting thing about this news is the behind the scenes drama it must have caused because of the way it was announced. I got the feeling the Kardashians don't announce ANYTHING without a magazine exclusive $$$$$ to break the news and if I understand it correctly Kanye just blurted it out at a concert. He might not want to play his life and child the way the Kardashian family does and for that reason alone I don't think it's great news these two are procreating.

    Then who else were you referring to with the "K"? King Kong? Katherine Hepburn? Genghis Khan?

    That was meant to be context - that even if you are not seeking the info, it's there, it's everywhere, and before Kim Kardashian it was someone else, and when she's long forgotten it will be someone else again.

    Well I feel bad for Khloe - wasnt she trying desperately to get pregnant with her husband? And now Kim, with all the looks, also gets effortlessly preggers!

    Sorry I can't get excited about Kim's pregnancy, more concerned about my co-worker who is 14 weeks pregnant, unmarried, on food stamps and thinks a baby is going to magically change her life for the better even after her mom said she can't live at home with the baby.

    You know, you say that all the time about celebrities you say you aren't interested in. But I never see info about most of these celebrities except when you (and others) start threads on FSU. I didn't even know Kim was dating anyone, for example, let alone who. I probably would have figured out she was pregnant without coming to FSU but the rags like the National Enquirer have been saying she is pregnant for years now so it might have taken me a while to figure out this time it was real.

    Bottom line: I think you do seek out celebrity news. And then bitch about how you can't escape it. If you really didn't care, then you wouldn't be following whomever you follow on Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo!, etc. That's what people who REALLY don't care about celebrity gossip do.

    And, if you don't seek it out, then it's not "everywhere". It hardly anywhere, in fact.

    And then Kanye can issue a statement that "Taylor Swift doesn't care about black people."
