Trump. The art of the media.

Donald-Trump-Body-Shame-Kim-Kardashian

 

I don’t know if you’ve asked the children in your life what they want to be lately, but maybe you should. When you ask about their aspirations compared to the usual responses of cowboys, superheroes and the fastest driver in the world, you are now much more likely to get answers such as Social media influencer, makeup guru and youtube sensation.

The world nowadays is a social media maze where businesses, supermarkets and presidents alike all take part In this never ending internet feud we’ve bizarrely come to live with. If you own a Tv and have some sort of social media account there is no doubt you will have heard the notorious name that is the Kardashians. Social media power couple Kim and Kanye West have a certain talent when it comes to attracting just about every media platform there is, Kanye gave us controversial tweets about how to run America to Kims Prison reform ideas, this celebrity couple are definitely biting off more than they can chew when it comes to American Politics.
Talking of American Politics, Tv show boss and businessman Donald Trump is by far the most interesting President to see the insides of the White House and here is why.

The celebrity Apprentice boss went from starting up a business with his father’s money, owning hotels and casinos, jetting round the world marrying European models, starring in a show about starting up businesses, to somehow being the leader and possibly the most powerful man in the free world, with little to no political experience Mr Donald Trump is a prime example of the sheer powers social media can have over not just a country but the world.

In the 21st Century you’d imagine someone dynamic, inspirational and eager for change sat in the Oval Office however due to social media the man sat in the office currently is someone who has been charged for multiple harassment, misogynistic views, racist comments and just about every homophobic insult there is in the book, but really I’m not here to complain and nor should anyone be, Donald trump has followed through on almost every promise he made in his election campaign, socially acceptable or not and that is a rarity, but if I take you back a few years you definitely wouldn’t be used to seeing celebrities In meetings with Mr President about how to run the country.

In the recent years Celebrities have used every platform they could to voice their social, ethical and political views from Oscar speeches to social media outcries, celebrities around the globe are giving their input. A study found that more than half of teens are more likely to smoke, drink or do drugs if they see a Celebrity influence doing it. Trends in clothes, make up, music and every aspect of society can change based on one song, one item of clothing or one makeup product worn by a certain celebrity so what’s to say they can’t influence something bigger like the running of the country.

Since Donald Trump got into power there have been huge marches on Washington containing some of the biggest influences of all, Anti-Gun marches, pride Marches, who controls America marches and even get rid of the president marches but despite all this, the power social media can have can often be irreversible. My point is that celebrities have so much more power than people realise, people take sides and base their decisions on those of celebrities without even realising, within the most recent presidential campaign Hillary Clinton had all the boxes ticked from Katy Perry to Lebron James and from Beyonce to Tyler Oakley she had them all posting and tweeting and singing and even despite this Donald Trump’s election was more powerful, backed by the National Rifle Association the President was still able to get the majority and thats whats scary. According to Pew Research Centre reports “ social media users say they are worn out by the politics they see on their feed”. This means that not only are people opinions being swayed by celebrity views online but they are also getting smothered with information and opinions by some of the biggest names at the moment and conforming to what they read without even having a balanced view.

Recently we’ve seen Donald Trump have meetings with various celebrities, commenting on their tweets and posing for pictures online, Trump had Kim Kardashian, the make up, reality tv, social media star in the White House talking about a woman who was in prison at the time and how they could change her punishment and one could argue is Trump using social media stars to gain a stronger following and wider reach? Honestly who knows, we can’t possibly know the whys and hows behind what happens and what’s happening in the White House, we can only assume and maybe thats a good thing. The media, the celebrities and the politicians can do what they want but as long as the public stays united and you stick to your views and your ideas and your opinions we won’t get lost in this social media maze, were stronger than that, we have to be.

KKW Beauty gossip update!

We previously got a look at Kim Kardashian‘s teaser of the upcoming KKW Beauty products, and now the star has finally revealed the release date – and it is sooner than you think.

In an Instagram post, Kardashian announced that the “Ultralight Beams” highlighter and lipgloss will be available on the KKW website starting December 1. There’s no official price or information available yet, but make sure to check back for more updates. Meanwhile, don’t miss Kim’s post below and the KKW Beauty teaser.

Kim Kardashian is saturating her influence faster than you can say money.

Kim shared out on her socials a tag to a new account @kkwfragrance confirming that the rumours are true, shes now making perfume. Can we be supprised? she has made everything from fidget spinners, coffee table books, clothes and cosmetics, to USB sticks, ash trays and lighters. 

As much as we love Kim, how much more items can she relase. As the novelty slowly wears off, it makes us wonder if Kim is slowly saturating her fame to make as much money as quickly as she can, money is great, but maintaing a brand is also imporatant. 

In recent years she has promoted so many products, apps and items that we really just dont give a shit anymore. 

She has multiple cosmetics, childrens wear, hair prodcusts, lifestyle apps, gaming apps, books and now lets just add multiple fragrances into the mix. 

Kim … We are bored!

How the Kardashians turned a Sex Tape into a Billion-Dollar Brand.

VIA HIGHSNOBEITY: http://www.highsnobiety.com/2017/08/16/kardashian-sex-tape-billion-dollar-brand/

Since starting in 2007, the American reality television series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians has since turned into a global empire, as it now airs in 167 countries, featured nine spinoffs and ranks as one of the nation’s top-rated TV series since 2010 — not to mention, the notorious sex tape that was made public between Kim and her ex, Ray J in 2007 that also helped catapult the show’s popularity.

Additionally, the family has spanned into the world of fashion and lifestyle with one boutique in the Valley, a combined social media reach of 700 million-plus, five profitable apps and receiving millions of dollars from a variety of endorsement deals, products and appearances.

The Hollywood Reporter delves into how all of this came about, as they speak to the stars and producers of the mega franchise in a recent interview.

Here are a few takeaways that we learned from the conversation.

…how their lives were like before the show, and how the idea began. 

Kris Jenner (star, executive producer) “Before the show, I was managing Bruce’s speaking career and personal appearances.”

Kim Kardashian (star, executive producer) “I was going to [Pierce College], and after school I would go work the cash register at our store, Dash. This all happened when I was 27 …”

Kendall Jenner (star) “That’s so crazy because I’m not even 27. We’ve lived the same amount of time of the same thing, but I’m not even the age you were when you started.”

Ryan Seacrest (executive producer) “Everyone was talking about The Osbournes, and I said to my development executive Eliot [Goldberg], “Let’s try to find something in this world and take it to E!””

Kourtney Kardashian (star, executive producer) “We had talked to producers about doing a show about the three of us running the store, Dash, where Khloe and I would do the day-to-day, and Kim would come in as a stylist. It didn’t go anywhere.”

Ted Harbert (then-CEO of E! Networks) “Just like anybody else, I knew of the family through [O.J. Simpson attorney] Robert Kardashian. There was a bit of the stuff with Kim hanging around Paris Hilton and, of course, the fun with Ray J [who made a sex tape with Kim]. That was sort of world news.”

Damla Dogan (senior vp development & programming, E!) “They were just crossing over into pop culture territory, especially Kim. She had a look that wasn’t on TV at the time. She wasn’t stick thin, and that was relatable.”

…on launching nine spinoffs.

Seacrest “We had a successful mother ship and we thought, “Let’s try a spinoff.” They were opening a Dash store in Miami, so that gave us a premise [Kourtney & Kim Take Miami]. I got a call from Jeff Shell, who was under Steve Burke at Comcast, which owned E! before the NBC merger. He said, “Should we be investing in spinoffs?” I told him, “I’ll take the risk.””

Harbert “A couple of years in, I said, “Wait until Kylie and Kendall are 18 years old, then there’s a whole new generation of shows that can supply the schedule for years.” (Life of Kylie premiered Aug. 6 to solid ratings.)

Kylie Jenner (star) “I feel like I’ve been hiding myself and my personal life for a really long time, so I thought it was time to do this show and hopefully be a little more understood.”

Khloe “I never wanted to do Khloe & Lamar [which ran for two seasons in 2011 and 2012]; my ex-husband did. He sold it to E!, and I let it happen because I wanted him to be happy. I was the one who canceled it. It was way too much.” (Odom was hospitalized in 2015 after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel. The couple divorced in 2016.)

…on Bruce Jenner announcing that he would begin living as a woman.

Kim “The most difficult thing [to film] was probably Caitlyn’s transition and just seeing my mom and Khloe having such a hard time. We never really edited content before, but we did edit a bit of Khloe’s reaction just because she was so upset.”

Khloe “If I act a certain way, I act a certain way, but I just knew in my head this needed to be a four-hour episode. This is so real, and I want to ask every question I have, but also I want honest answers.”

Kylie “At the time, I didn’t think, “Oh, this is going to make pop culture history.” I had different things on my mind, because this was my reality, and this is my dad.”
