It's totally normal for people to look back fondly on their younger years, but tonight on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim showed that she's completely stuck in the past. Right off the bat she admits she's obsessed with her younger sister Kylie Jenner and wants to dress just like her. Well, that's a little bit creepy.
During a clothing design meeting with Khloe and Kourtney, Kim spends the entire time talking about how cool Kylie is, and it's obvious that her sisters are weirded out by her eagerness to mimic their baby sister's style. She's basically been stalking Kylie's tumblr, and says that she wants to be featured on it because Kylie is, like, totally "the real deal." With a deadpan stare, Khloe responds by saying, "She's 15." EXACTLY, Khloe. Kylie is only 15. Why is Kim trying to be like a 15-year-old girl?
At first, I completely related to Kim wanting be cool like her younger sister. My little sister has a great sense of style, and I always look to her for inspiration. But the problem with Kim's fascination with Kylie's "coolness" is that it's verging on being an unhealthy obsession.
It's as if she thinks that everyone is going to forget about her if she can't keep up with the times. She says a bunch of things that show how obsessed she is with being cool.
I just want to see what the young crowd is about.
I want Kylie to remember that I have cool style and cool taste.
I just want to be cool again.
Ummmm, hello, does the way Kim's acting sound familiar to anyone? She's totally jumping on the Kris Jenner train and trying to act way younger than she is. Like mother, like daughter, amiright?
At one point, Kim walks into a room wearing a beanie and a chambray button-up, which 15-year-old Kylie can pull off, but a very pregnant Kim cannot. Kris sees her and immediately calls her out for trying to look like Kylie. Kris says, "You made fun of me for being the 'fourth sister' and for not acting my age, and you come in here looking like the 'third younger sister.'" Snap, Kris. You tell her who's boss.
There's nothing wrong with trying to stay in style, but it's concerning that Kim's desire to be cool is taking over her life. She should own who she is and not try and dress like a teenager. Hopefully Kim can learn to love herself for who she is and accept her age in a graceful way.
What do you think of Kim's obsession with her younger sister?
