Girls in Hoodies Podcast: Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and True Life
The behooded ones are finally all in the same room again, and just in time to go super deep on the Kimye phenomenon. What starts as a conversation about the New York Times’s fascinating interview with Kanye West and the buildup to his highly anticipated sixth album, Yeezus, can’t help but be colored by the tabloid circus surrounding him and his pregnant girlfriend, Kim Kardashian. Why can’t we separate the artist from the person? If celebrities can’t make us feel like their friends, are they doing their job sufficiently?
These big questions are dwarfed, however, by the dilemma facing the subjects of this past week’s True Life: I’m Too Beautiful (and True Life: I’m Addicted to the Internet). We attempt to unpack the rich psychological drama of these latest installments of arguably the best reality show on TV. True Life is still killin’ it, y’all.
