Selfie photographer and noted famous person Kim Kardashian, whose recent visits to the San Francisco Bay Area include the occasion of her engagement to the musician and thinker Kanye West, returns to Northern California this month to speak in Oakland, the Chronicle reports. Her subjects are to include "her famous family, the business of millennial culture, the objectification of women in media and more."
Sure, there's an irony there, but these are topics that Kardashian is more than well-equipped to discuss. And though many would argue over the degree to which Kardashian is self-aware or self-determined, any such conversation should take into consideration the ridiculous amount she has profited from basically everything in her life including a certain amount of public infamy and even disdain.
With 29 million followers on Instagram and 31 million followers on Twitter, the social media omnipresence and apple of the public eye will appear in the flesh at the Paramount Theater on June 30th. As a release for her "lecture/seminar" notes, "Her biological father famously represented OJ Simpson, and her Olympic athlete stepparent Caitlyn Jenner made headlines recently when she came out as transgender." That's not all, as "Kim is half of the #worldsmosttalkedaboutcouple, Kimye," and "she recently 'broke the internet' with her bum on the cover of Paper magazine."
Her interlocutor for the speaking engagement, which is part of the Commonwealth Club’s Inforum series, has yet to be announced. Tickets ranging in price from $40 to $300 are on sale as of today.
