Tim Gunn Hates The “Kardashian Aura Of Yuck”
In case you hadn’t heard already, Tim Gunn hates the Kardashians. A lot. His latest screed against them arrived in a conversation with HuffPost Live this week. He started off by calling Kanye’s fashion line “a bunch of dumb clothes” (in his signature snarky tone, of course), but the really burn arrived when he was asked what he thought about Kendall Jenner:
“I think absolutely nothing [of her], to be honest.”
Clearly, he’s learned from the best: the ultimate way to infuriate someone who wants you to like them isn’t with rage, but with utter ambivalence. (Though I suppose I can’t assume Kendall is desperate for Tim’s approval.)
“…I’m assuming there’s a huge, perhaps million-dollars-a-month publicity wagon that is pulling these girls along and creating these lives for them. I’m distrustful of it, and I find it all distasteful…She may be a perfectly lovely young woman. I just feel that she’s tainted by the Kardashian aura of yuck!”
He went on to use the word “vulgar” to describe the family’s pop culture power, and shrugged off any potential backlash by insisting, in so many words, that the Kardashians already hate him anyway so who gives a damn what they think at this point? Having recently referred to himself as Michelangelo (because obviously), Kanye will probably not be particularly fond of Tim’s comments. I’m so over Ye’s unchecked rage when it comes to public feuds, but a tiny part of me hopes these disses start a minor rumble. Does that make me a pop culture rubbernecker? Probably. BRB, grabbing popcorn.
