August 5, Monday — During a visit to Amazon’s warehouses, Pres. Obama emphasized issues on American culture and reality TV influence. The US president openly criticized new parents Kanye West and Kim Kardashian over ‘influencing’ young Americans to create a mindset obsessed with wealth and a grandiose life.
The leader of the free nation said that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian may be ‘bad influences’. He said, “[Before] kids weren’t monitoring every day what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success.”
The reality TV star and her rapper beau, with the Kardashian family have a strong influence on viewers with their reality TV show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashian’. It is because of this that the President of the United States and his wife are trying to keep their family values by “constantly reminding daughters, Mila and Sasha of the slightly unreal environment that they’re in, and that that’s not the norm.”
The Kardashian family have a more than $40 M contract deal with E! Network. The contract states the reality series will be aired until 2015. The family will evenly distribute salary among their parents Kris and Bruce Jenner, with elder sisters Kourtney and Khloe. Younger siblings Kendall, Kylie and Rob will also be equally paid in lesser amounts.
Other casts of the show also have separate contracts including Kourtney’s boyfriend, Scott Disick and Khloe’s husband, Lamar Odom. Kourtney and Scott’s son, Mayson will also have an allotted pay for appearing on the TV series.
The couple and new parents live in their Bel Air mansion in California. Kanye moved out from his New York apartment to be with Kim and North.
