Kim Kardashian & North West recorded a funny ‘stay at home’ PSA for Californians

Coastal states – on both coasts – have announced pacts/partnerships to ease their regions’ into the new corona-economy. There’s some evidence to suggest that many states have done enough to flatten the curve, including the states which took the coronavirus seriously early on. But it won’t be like flipping a switch – even if states begin to “reopen” their economies in May, there will likely still be widespread recommendations for masks, social distancing and work-from-home-if-you-can. On the West Coast, the governors of California, Washington and Oregon have made a pact to work with each other to reopen their economies gradually, and are using medical priorities and scientific data to inform their policies.

All of which to say, I think people should get used to the idea that we’ll still be isolating and social distancing for another month or two, if not throughout the summer. And people are going stir crazy about it. Take Kim Kardashian, who recorded a “stay at home” PSA for the California governor’s office with her daughter North West. I can feel Kim’s exasperation from here.

I’m choosing to believe that this is cute. I think it’s completely fine and realistic that so many parents are like “actually, my kids are driving me crazy, I can’t wait to go back to work.” And for what it’s worth, all of the Kardashian-Jenners were early isolators. They all went on lockdown in early/mid-March and they haven’t been pap strolling or anything. The one exception is Kanye – I’ve seen paparazzi photos of him out and about. Maybe going to his studio? I have no idea.

    No shade here. It’s an important message. And honestly, NW’s interventions are totally realistic – I have VCs all the time with my colleagues with kids and their kids are always jumping in and out of the frame, or shouting into the mic. It’s the new normal.

    Totally superficially though – the thumbnail pic? Who is that person? That face doesn’t even look real

    • Laura says:

      It looks non-human. Please, stop with the filters!! Just take regular pictures of yourselves so we can stop hating ourselves for not looking like a plastic doll. Humans shouldn’t look like that or want to look like that…

    • Mee says:

      God: “Who is this? That face is not my creation!”

  2. Ali says:

    Yikes. Why is she using so many face filters?

  3. Bibliomommy96 says:

    That was cute, we’re all feeling cooped up with our kids.

  4. Ariel says:

    Is it me, or does her face look particularly jacked here. I don’t see her in more than still pictures very often, but i assume plastic surgery, even non surgical cosmetic procedures are being discouraged. Though in california, maybe they have home visit fillers and botox.

    • kellebelle says:

      Her lips look twice the size they usually are. And yes, always more work has been done. This woman will not enjoy aging.

  5. minx says:

    yikes, her face.

  6. Suz says:

    She looks like a space alien.

  7. Jules says:

    yea we know the whole “oh surprise, my kids crashed my online work meeting, how cute and surprising'” thing has been pretty much overdone. stop using your kids as props.

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Holy f*cking shit that is NOT a real human. Wth is that?!

  9. Sarah says:

    That is not a human being.

  10. Rachel says:

    why can’t I look like that in quarentin??? She is flawless.

    Since everyone is commenting about Kim’s face, I thought I’d share my experience because those comments hurt my heart. I have body Dysmorphic disorder – it’s a mental health condition wherein what you see in the mirror is distorted or exaggerated and sufferers who look perfectly normal truly believe they are deformed. The suicide attempt rate is 30%. Plastic surgery and injectables are often sought after in an attempt to look “normal” and obviously, it’s a slippery slope. I can’t tell you if Kim or any of the Kardashians have this disorder, but I can tell you that it appears to be genetic based on research. If they’re truly happy with their procedures and do not have BDD, then great, who cares. But if this comes from a place of severe body image distress, then I feel for them. So please remember that if you see people who are “overfilled” or continuously seem to seek cosmetic procedures and perfection, it is absolutely possible they have BDD. It’s grossly understudied and under reported because suffers see it as a physical problem – not a mental one. We’re also deeply ashamed to let those around us know our physical preoccupations for fear we’ll be seen as shallow or vain. And in any case, comments like “yikes her face” don’t exactly HELP anyone.

      Thanks for sharing Cassie. I hope you have a strong network of support. Sending you some virtually now! We can choose to lift each other up, now more than ever.
      There are so many things to knock on KKW. Her business, her relationships, her constant cultural appropriation.
      But it hurts to read the vitriol that is written about someone’s physical appearance. I’ve written and deleted this a few times. I’m sure it will be sh1t on. Comments that are directed at KKW and her family are read by people who may be struggling with a whole host of issues. It doesn’t take much to internalize a comment about someone else & wonder if you look as 👽 as you all mention. Today I’m choosing kindness.

    • Haapa says:

      If she has a legitimate disorder, she should be using her money for professional mental health help, not cosmetic procedures which perpetuate unrealistic body standards.

    • L says:

      I have sympathy for her if she has BDD. I have sympathy for everyone who has BDD, including you.

      I think it’s really important that people are aware of what Kim is doing though.. the overuse of filters is actually really destructive to viewers who aren’t aware that she is using them. She’s beautiful, but the images you are seeing are largely fake.

  12. ME says:

    I honestly wonder if she has her maids, chefs, and nannies living in her home during the quarantine. Are we really supposed to believe she and Kanye are doing the laundry, cleaning, cooking, taking care of kids, etc? Yeah she’s saying “stay at home” now, but she was just in Paris last month wasn’t she? At that time, the outbreak was in full force, especially in France.

  13. LindaS says:

    She looks like a Barbie doll.

  14. Lily says:

    Holy crap. A whole new face! She looks like the dude that spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on plastic surgery to look like HER.
