Kim Kardashian West is the queen of being real. With over 100 million followers on Instagram, an award-winning reality TV show and daily paparazzi shots splashing her life across the tabloids, you probably think you know everything there is to know about Bazaar’s cover star, right? Wrong! There’s more to Kimmy K than her unfiltered social media posts. Here, a few of our favourite things we learned from her while on the set of our September shoot.
1. She thinks her four-year old daughter North West would make a better president of the United States than Donald Trump.
“Anyone can run the US better. My daughter would be better. It’s really scary, the world that we’re living in now. With Trump in presidency, you just don’t feel safe any more.”
2. She’s in a group chat with Huda Kattan.
“[We’re] discussing a girl boss cruise or a retreat to give advice to girls looking to start their own businesses.”
3. She said she’s not a feminist (but really she is).
“I said once before that I’m not really a feminist, but I feel I do a lot more than people that claim that they’re feminist. To clarify what I said before: I feel in my soul I’m a feminist. I just don’t need labels to make me feel or know what I am inside.”
4. She’s terrified of the day her kids want their own social media accounts.
“I’m going to be so worried for the time my kids want to get on social media. It doesn’t seem like the safest place. I have a pretty thick skin. But I feel bad for anyone that gets hate on social media. There’s so much cyber-bullying and negativity in comments to everyone. I think it’s so wrong. No matter what you do, you’re so judged and criticised on social media. I hope it changes. I hope people stop being so negative. We can only go further if everyone uplifts each other and supports one another.”
5. She is launching her first fragrance exclusive to the Middle East.
And it’s out next month!
