This is my open journal. I will write about things that arouse my curiosity, things that anger me, things that delight me and above all, things that inspire me. I am a singer first & foremost and everything else I do is merely a momentary distraction. I love music, art, fashion, books, the news and utterly insane things are what make me laugh.
I'm sure everyone who has access to a computer or a television is well aware of the recent demise of Kim Kardashian's extremely brief marriage.
The vast majority are pointing the finger at Kim, saying that it was merely a publicity stunt or a money making venture. Look, I totally get that she is notorious for being famous for nothing (other than that sex tape that I'm sure most of us have seen) and uses every opportunity to make an appearance, but could she have really gone this far?
Regardless of whether this marriage was real or not I really feel sorry for her. If it is a publicity stunt, I am heartbroken that such a mockery was made of something that was once a deceleration of love and eternity. Something that is sometimes seen these days as just another big party with a fabulous new dress, that can easily be taken care of if things go south. If it was genuine, its extremely tragic that it didn't even last a year and that she has to face media scrutiny in a time of such devastation.
I think that this marriage (and many others) is really indicative of modern times. Women don't need to get married for financial stability anymore, nor is it frowned upon to be a single mother like it was when my grandmother was growing up. Couples are jumping into 'forever' in a matter of months and jumping back out again less than a decade later. As a child of divorce I completely understand the pressures of making a relationship work are way greater than what we read in story books as children. I cant help but wonder, is marriage necessary these days? In a time of uncertainty, temptation, relaxed morals, 1 in 3 marriages ending in divorce and when where we wont even stay loyal to a job for more than a few years, can it really work forever? I still really want to walk down the isle one day, but if I do, I hope I only do it once.
One thing is for sure, journalists will be falling over each other to get interviews from her and (as usual) Kim will be all over magazines for a long time to come.
I really hope her friends and family are sticking by her side for this one.
