Kim Kardashian Talks Toning Down Her Sex Appeal, Blac Chyna’s Revenge Porn Lawsuit Against Rob Kardashian + Says #MeToo Movement ‘Goes Into The Cancel Culture Realm’

It’s been a whirlwind of a decade for Kim Kardashian West and her famous family. The reality star, fashion icon, and entrepreneur opened up about some of the biggest moments of the 2010s, and some of the more recent controversies.

While many see the last decade as the years of former President Barack Obama, who was elected in 2008 and 2012, Kim Kardashian West uses her family’s television series “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” which premiered in 2007, as a benchmark for the times.

“For some reason, at the end of this decade, [politics is] such a hot topic — I think in the pop-culture realm too. With Obama, our first black president, that was the first time that I voted. That was such an exciting time, so different. To me, though, my decade is mapped out by my TV show: What was I doing seasons one to five, five to ten?”

Now that she’s a staple in the fashion industry, she said her status as a “sex symbol” has become a little more complex as she addressed statements that she’s been toning down her sexy lately (especially after that dispute between her and Kanye West over her dress for the Met Gala in May).

Kim Kardashian West said,

“I saw this whole thing where it’s like, ‘She’s so demure, and she’s covered.’ And I was like, ‘Guys, I had a shearling coat on and a turtleneck because it’s, like, freezing.’ But I think I have a little bit. I don’t know if it’s the fact that my husband has voiced that sometimes too sexy is just overkill and he’s not comfortable with that. I listen to him and understand him. Still, at the end of the day, he always gives me the freedom to be and do what I want.”

She added that she’s had her own realization of being too sexy as a mom.

“But I have kind of had this awakening myself. I realized I could not even scroll through Instagram in front of my kids without full nudity coming up on my feed pretty much all the time.”

She also insisted that all is well between her and Kanye West, who she married in 2014.

“The one consistent thing is our relationship has never stopped being fun. And it’s okay to not understand each other. It’s okay to not have the same exact feelings all the time. It’s just about figuring out how do we grow from that? or what’s the lesson from that? And giving each other space and time to figure that out.”

She went on to speak about her role in the justice system. She’s been a major factor in helping many prisoners go free and is currently involved with trying to stop the execution of Rodney Reed, a Texas man on death row for the rape and murder of a White woman. While there was a pause on his execution earlier this month, Kim Kardashian West said things aren’t over yet, but she remains hopeful.

“I am going to go and visit him on Friday. My attorneys are in communication with his attorneys and really helping out. I can go because of my attorney-client privilege; I’m in an internship program in law school. He will be moved to the death chambers, ready for execution, which is in a different section—even separate from death row. I’ve never been to anything like that before. I’ve been to death row at San Quentin. I am still very hopeful. Usually, when they do a stay of execution, it happens right before the execution, sometimes hours before.”

She said her and Kanye West raising their four African-American children plays a major factor in her interest in criminal justice reform.

“It definitely has a lot to do with it. I want my children to have a fair life. And I do believe that race does play a huge role in the criminal-justice system, if you look at all the numbers. Statistically, one in three black men will be locked up in their lifetime. So that does weigh heavy on my heart.”

She also shared her thoughts on the current status of cancel culture.

“I think lately people are just mad a lot in general. The era of cancel culture? It’s not really a real thing. They say it, and it doesn’t happen. I’ve always believed in second chances and not canceling people. It’s really a weird time.”

While Kim Kardashian West is one of the most infamous personalities of our time, many will never forget that her claim to fame was arguably her 2003 sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J that was leaked in 2007. She was asked about the idea that nowadays, sex tapes leaking can lead to a revenge porn lawsuit, which her brother Rob Kardashian is tied up in now after posting revealing photos of the mother of his child, Blac Chyna, during a heated online dispute.

“I never even thought about that. I guess that question is a bit tricky. Not even for my situation, but because my brother did post photos of his baby mama and he’s in a revenge-porn lawsuit. Obviously, I get the difference. And I would talk about me. But I don’t know the right thing to say without making him feel like the biggest piece of s***.”

She also gave her controversial thoughts on the #MeToo movement, where women in Hollywood called out powerful men in the film and television industry for sexual assault. Kardashian West said,

“I think the Me Too culture goes into the cancel-culture realm, where maybe … Well, I don’t want to speak for people who have been sexually assaulted because I actually don’t know what that’s like. But even just finding love in the workplace … That used to be the only way, you know. So many of my parents’ friends married their secretaries, and were together for 40 years, and have children together. And now it’s like, ‘Oh, how could you?’ The head of McDonald’s getting fired for having a consensual relationship with a co-worker. That kind of threw me off a little bit, just thinking how times have changed.”
