What We Learnt From Kim Kardashian’s First Cover Interview

Let’s all think back to a time when we’d never heard of Kim Kardashian. It’s hard to remember, isn’t it?

But back in early 2007, she was just a 26-year-old Hollywood socialite with a handful of famous friends (Paris Hilton was her BFF) and a job as a closet organiser.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians had yet to air and she was years away from settling down with husband Kanye West.

Now Kim’s first ever cover interview has emerged from the depths of the internet – and it’s really quite enlightening.

The shoot was with Complex magazine, and here’s what we learnt…

1) She referred to herself as ‘Princess Kim

> Kim Kardashian has changed quite a bit since 2007



The opening paragraph of the feature reads: ‘Despite what people may assume of Paris Hilton’s childhood BFF, Princess Kim (as she likes to call herself) is no trust-fund hussy.

‘Kim owns a high-end LA boutique, Dash, reorganizes closets professionally (she’s doing Lindsay’s next week!), styles celebs, and slangs closet accessories on infomercials.’

2) She name dropped quite a bit…

> Kim Kardashian was once best pals with Paris Hilton



Example one: ‘The other night Paris went to Area, and next to us was Britney’s table and I was walking around and I saw Justin and I was like: “Ah! We have to wait and see if there’s a dance-off!” I wanted to go home, but I’m not gonna lie, I stayed a little bit longer. There wasn’t a dance-off.’

Example two: ‘I remember, I used to tell one of my really good friends, Brandy – the singer Brandy – you know she has every purse and shoe and every outfit. I’d be like: “Let’s not buy a $5,000 bag for once and let’s go on vacation.”’

Example three: ‘[The] Game and I have been friends for years. He came to Paris’s album release party and we all took a picture together – me, Paris, and him – and yet he and I are “dating.”’

3) She had A LOT of confidence

> Kim Kardashian used to love a statement earring



When asked how she’d rate herself in bed, she answered: ‘Twenty, on a scale of one to ten… I’m really passionate and sensitive.’
