Kim Kardashian West says her husband Kanye West taught her that life is more important than reputation.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has confessed she used to endorse whatever she could, as long as she got paid for it, but now she only accepts deals on things that is actually who she is.
She said: “I do respect the fact that he’s always himself, no matter if it’s popular.’
Kim continued: ‘I look back at all the products that I would endorse, the cupcakes and the shoes that I would never wear, and all this stuff that wasn’t me, and I would do it for the check.’
‘I’m not like that anymore because of him. Because he has really shown me … to do what I believe in.
“Kim no longer worries about what people think of her and wasn’t bothered about her ‘reputation’ when she decided to visit US President Donald Trump to help 63-year-old Alice Johnson get released on Clemency after she was sentenced to life without parole for a first time non-violent drug offence.
Speaking in an interview at the Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles, as aired on a new episode of the family’s E! reality show, she said: “I did consider that I would get a lot of backlash if I went to the White House.’
‘But for me, if it’s a life versus my reputation, like, people talk s**t about me all day long, like, I didn’t really care.’
Adding: ‘And from meeting all of the people that I have met behind bars, I guarantee you – they don’t care who signs that clemency paper.”
At the Criminal Justice Reform summit she was interviewed by attorney Van Jones, a CNN host.
‘Real talk,’ Kim confided in him before the event. ‘This law school s***? There is so much reading to do. I am like, dying here.’
‘Law school is more of a socialization process than an educational process anyway,’ Jones said. ‘It’s more learning to think like a lawyer than all the actual stuff.’
He praised her doggedness and rigorousness in pursuit of the truth.
All that stuff, you can’t teach,’ he told her.
As she prepared to go before an audience, Kim and her colleagues learned the First Step Act had passed with bipartisan support.
‘This whole motion would not have been possible had it not been for Kim Kardashian,’ Jones told the crowd.
‘Your husband… you guys have different politics,’ Jones pressed.
‘I feel like he is very misunderstood and just is the worst communicator,’ said Kim, to laughs.
‘But when we talk about it, we have very similar politics. I think what my husband fights for is the right to like what he wants to like, even if it’s different from what you like. He’s just fighting for free thought, but I just know his heart, so I never stress too much.’
The episode took place amid the backdrop of the massive Woolsey Fire last November that killed three, destroyed 1,643 structures and burned 96,949 acres.
‘Holy crap—it looks like Armageddon,’ said Khloé Kardashian, 34, while watching reports on TV.
She and the rest of the Kardashian family got the scare of their lives as the wildfire encroached on their Los Angeles-area homes.
