Kim Kardashian-West is the cover girl with her daughter North for the
September 2017 issue of Interview Magazine and she addressed some of
the criticism against her, especially suggestions that she is lazy and
making money from having no talent. Dismissing this, the reality star
I used to say, “I love being underestimated.” But now when I hear,
“They’re so not talented,”—ten years into it—I’m kind of like, “Okay,
give a girl a little respect.” If I’m so not talented, if I do nothing,
then how is my career my reality? And I poke fun at it, like when I was
on the cover of Forbes I posted the hashtag #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent.
I don’t mind being underestimated because it does fuel me. But after a
while, I do feel like, “C’mon, you can recognize a little bit.”
You can say a lot of things about me, but you cannot say I don’t work
hard. I don’t sing. I don’t dance. I don’t act. But I am not lazy.
