Let it be known that the wrath of Kanye West is not a force to be reckoned with. After Jimmy Kimmel targeted the artist in a skit featuring two kids spoofing Kanye's interview with Zane Lowe of the BBC in "Kimmel Kid (re)Kreation," the late-night prankster found himself in a Twitter feud with the genius behind Yeezus. Kimmel joked, "Finally, I'm in a rap feud." No games, bruh.
The two have since made up, and one of the more interesting moments to come out of the air-clearing conversation came when Kanye defended Kim Kardashian's right to a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. (She was recently denied a spot). It would certainly be controversial, but we're with Kanye on this one. Kim Kardashian is a thoroughly modern star, the biggest name in her field, reality television.
Kim went from being Paris Hilton's BFF and a sex tape star to the queen of her own empire. Her popularity turned the spotlight on her family, which spawned Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami. It's because of her that Khloe, Kris, Kourtney, and everyone else in the Kardashian klan are even a thing. It's because of her that you quote Scott Disick. And admit it, you can binge watch all these shows like crazy.
But her power isn't confined to reality TV. She spun her success into film and TV roles—namely a starring role in Disaster Movie—and into a pop single that made it onto U.S. Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. And don't even get us started on the amount of products her name sells.
With over 18 million Twitter followers, Kim Kardashian is the definition of a modern celebrity, and that should be recognized. Here are the Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Who Are Less Deserving Than Kim Kardashian.
