Really? Ugh.

Just popping by to share a link from the LA Times - The Kardashian phenomenon. Click for a lengthy article about how the Kardashians became idols for the cult of celebrity without having any skills or talents whatsoever.

Depressing quote:
"There's an aspirational quality to somebody who has become a celebrity for -- and I don't say this in an offensive way -- but for not doing anything celebrity-worthy," said Matt Delzell, an executive at Davie Brown Entertainment, a company that helps corporations choose celebrity endorsers. The young women to whom the Kardashians appeal, he said, "tend to think that's pretty cool. That's something I might be able to achieve."
Is it just me, or is this guys saying that Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney are role models? Shoot me in the face.
