Why Kim Kardashian Is The Marilyn Monroe Of Our Generation

Say what you want but Kim Kardashian is by far the most well known woman in the world right now. (Ok, maybe the Queen is up there too.)

Fame is something she’s just really good at, and we can’t blame her for it.

Her exotic beauty, risky style choices, well connected family and extremely successful husband doesn’t even begin to explain why she seems to always make it on the headlines of every news publication.

She’s simply iconic in every way, she knows exactly what people want to see and how to keep herself relevant even after all these years.

Her name seems to never disappear from the tabloids and it’s because she knows how to do fame the right way.

She is the “sex symbol” of our generation just as Marilyn Monroe was in the 1950s.

Pretty much everything she does from taking selfies to designing new kimoji merchandise has always been one of the first things you see when you open Twitter or Facebook.

She slays in almost every aspect, and this is why people love to hear what’s new in her life.

Her life is interesting to say the least, she’s always traveling, hanging out with the most elite celebrities, going to the fanciest restaurants and clubs the list goes on.

Sometimes we live vicariously through Kim Kardashian because who wouldn’t want to be her?
