Does Kim Kardashian Have the Best Outlook on Cellulite?

Does Kim Kardashian Have the Best Outlook on Cellulite? - TheBlackPurple
She’s famous for two things. One, for being part of a famous family and social circle. Two, for her butt. Considering that’s all she’s had to work with, Kim Kardashian has done very well. It’s estimated that she made $52.5 million in 2015. She has tens of millions of followers on social media. “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”, in which she’s a regular, is now in its 10th year on television. Her name appears on a wide range of products, including a mobile game. And Time magazine named her one of 2015’s 100 most influential people. Typically, with their livelihood on the line, celebrities like to protect the God-given talents that have brought them fame and fortune. Singers will rest vocal chords before performances so that every note is pitch-perfect. Actors will continue to train to keep in peak form long after they become famous. With that in mind, you’d think that, with so much resting on her posterior, Kardashian would make sure it’s always presented in the best way possible. And she usually does. You’d be hard pressed to find someone who hasn’t seen images that highlight Kardashian’s butt. Shape magazine recently posted an article about paparazzi images of Kim in a bikini. It’s a subject that’s hardly newsworthy, even for celebrity news. But ‘Kim’s butt in a bikini’ was not the real news this time. Instead, the photograph itself was the thing – at least the fact that it didn’t appear to be posed, hand-picked over hundreds of others for portraying the subject in the perfect light, or even photoshopped. It’s a seemingly candid shot and there’s - *gasp* - cellulite on her bum and thighs! Kardashian herself has posted similar images recently on her Instagram account. But, as admirable as it is for Kardashian present herself in such an unfiltered way, knowing she’d suffer the onslaught of insults and body shaming, it is her attitude towards cellulite that may be most refreshing and helpful to anyone who feels shame about it. According to the Shape article, Kardashian is quoted in a 2010 interview as saying "I have cellulite, just like almost every other woman on the planet. And just because I feel secure with my body doesn't mean I think cellulite is cute! It will always be an issue for me. So let's just say it's a work in progress!" By simply saying that cellulite is an issue for her, Kardashian suddenly makes it less of an issue for so many others who compare themselves to the ‘perfect’ body images they see in the media every day. Yes, your cellulite isn’t cute, and, like Kim Kardashian, it’s an issue for you. But, like every issue, you can tackle it and make it better.
