What is so fascinating about Kim Kardashian that she has an 84.3 Million following on Instagram? Is it her fifty-one million dollars net worth that everyone wants to see what she spends her money on? Or, is it her shameless attitude to basically showcase her glorified, naked body to the public? It is clear here Kim is showing a clear sense of insecurity and a need for validation from random strangers. Kim Kardashian is a prime example of why teenage girls are posting revealing photos of themselves just to get likes or more so, get attention.
It is clear that Kim Kardashian posts very little photos that leave anything up to the imagination. Is this true beauty? Is this what our world is attracted too? Is this what gets her 84.3 million followers?
Seven months ago, you can see above that the notoriously known celebrity Kim Kardashian posted a photo on the mobile sharing application Instagram with the caption “when you’re like I have nothing to wear LOL”.
This is a means of capitalistic production and certainly illustrates a negative light on what is appropriate and what is not appropriate to post on Instagram.
It is here that Kim Kardashian identifies her true intentions and desires. Her LOL suggests the many threads of irony required to weave an outfit of black-rectangled censors.
Her LOL is a wink, rendered as an acronym. Kim Kardashian is one of the reasons why girls like Essena O’Neill feel self-conscious, feel isolated and feel almost ostracised from the online community.
How can this Instagram world change to a more friendly and welcoming photo-sharing application? Start by showcasing the natural you, the one that hopefully has clothes on!
