@KimKardashian is used to being underestimated. If the media mogul/beauty entrepreneur/soon-to-be mother of four’s next act—studying law—seems unlikely, perhaps it shouldn’t. "This is the daughter of an accomplished attorney and the mother of three black kids who is using her full power to make a difference on a tough issue and is shockingly good at it," says @CNN commentator and activist @vanjones68. Jones brings up the Elle Woods character from @legallyblondemovies as perhaps the only archetype we have in the culture through which to understand such an unlikely turn of events. “But she’s so much deeper than that,” he says, “because the gravity of the issues she’s taking on is so tragic and all-pervasive. I think she’s going to be a singular person in American life.” In many demonstrable ways—for better or worse—@KimKardashian already is. But if she were to pass the bar, it would be the most surprising rebranding since @Barbie got woke, a case to be studied at @harvardhbs for years to come. (Indeed, she has been invited to speak at Harvard later this year “on branding and media.”) “I love to be put in a situation where I can have a conversation with someone who might not be inclined to think much of me, because I can guarantee they will have a different opinion and understand what’s important to me after they’ve met me,” @KimKardashian says.

I have a lot of crap in my house. As much as I want to be a more minimalist person, I just end up accumulating so much STUFF. Magazines, books, shoes, clothes, furniture, the tchotchkes of life, man. And I’m a single woman with a cat! I can’t even imagine how much sh-t would be in my house if I had kids. The toys, the child paraphernalia, the kid-made gifts, the drawings I couldn’t throw out, and on and on. So how is that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s home is so…minimalist and stark? I know that HIS style, but they have three kids! Where are the toys? Where are the strollers and tchotchkes and magazines and books?

After once claiming that they would never put photos of their forever-home into the public sphere, Kim and Kanye allowed Vogue’s cameras into their abode. I imagine it was one of several prerequisites for putting Kim (solo) on the cover of the May issue of Vogue: she had to give Vogue a big exclusive (the law school breaking news) and she had to allow Vogue to photograph inside the West-Kardashian home. I’ll admit it – I enjoyed this video just for the chance to creep on their interior design and layout (which is nonsensical). Behold, Kim’s “73 Questions With” video:

Kim’s bragged about how her kids are super-quiet and well-behaved in previous interviews, but in this video, you get to see the kids behaving like… typical kids. Adorable, annoying, sweet, needing attention from their parents. I also think that the kids would probably be quieter or better behaved if they were allowed some kind of intellectual stimuli? Where are their toys? Chicago rather desperately wants to get down and crawl and play and do her own thing but Kanye keeps holding her back. Saint is clearly his mom’s doll – they seem very attached to each other. And I wish North was in school, damn.

Going back to the interior design… I expected all of the white and beige and, I mean, it’s a look. I don’t think I expected everything to look SO blank and basic though. Sure, it’s sort of blandly beautiful, but I would love to see some pops of color, something, I don’t know.
