Jon Hamm VS Kim K: No One’s Really A Winner In This Situation

14 03 2012

I’m not sure someone who has had a sex tape “leak,” been married and divorced inside a 90-day period, and has been accused of plagiarizing designs on more than one occasion, should really be taking offense to someone else calling her an idiot.

No matter how much money is in her bank account, no one is accusing Kim Kardashian of good judgement.

I’m also not sure why this is making such a splash online and beyond. It is the sort of fare you would commonly hear in three cycles on E!, but definitely not what you tune in to HLN for.

Nonetheless it is being reported across the globe that in the April issue of (UK) Elle magazine, the “Mad Men” star discusses the frighteningly low IQ of today’s popular culture trends.  Hamm has been quoted as saying “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated. Being a fucking idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.”

This is not a new trend or issue, arguably the “dumb blonde” and “woe is me” routine by female celebs has existed for decades. Lest we not forget the last time this debate reared it’s airhead:  a 2003 episode of MTV’s Newlyweds in which former pop-star Jessica Simpson (seriously) asks her husband, boybander Nick Lachey, whether the tuna she is eating was actually fish. Or chicken? …Or fish?
