Jasmine and I were just reading negative comments that were made about Kim Kardashian being on this months issue of Allure Magazine. We are big fans of Allure! But I have to say, we kind of agree with some of these comments. In my own personal opinion, Kim Kardashian is a beautiful woman, but honestly she is not someone I would look up to or even aspire to be. Making a sex tape is no way to make yourself famous. The sad part is that Kim isn't the one making herself famous, it is US making her famous by sharing the video, by talking about her, by fueling the controversies she finds herself in. This is true for many other celebrities as well.
So our conversation continued and Jasmine mentioned Kony 2012. I had no idea who or what this was about! But after visiting the site Kony 2012. Invisible Children and watching the video (i cried the whole way through, by the way) I was so filled with outrage.
I know this blog is about fashion and beauty but we felt so strongly about this issue we had to write about it. I feel like we live in a box and we rarely look outside because we are afraid of knowing what is going out in the world. With this being said, I find it unnerving how people like you and me have the power to make a sex-tape go viral in minutes and make those people famous but we think we are powerless against someone who commits crimes against humanity!
If you have watched the video and you believe you can do something please copy these picture. Use your voice as a blogger to make Kony famous.
