Kim Kardashian West responds to Aaliyah costume racism criticism

Kim Kardashian West

Kim Kardashian West spent most of her Halloween week dressing up as some of the biggest names in music, from being the Cher to BFF Jonathan Cheban’s Sonny, to channelling singer Selena Quintanilla in her iconic purple jumpsuit.

But the costume that caused the biggest stir on social media was Kim’s decision to dress up as the late R&B singer Aaliyah, using the outfit the singer wore in her ‘Try Again’ video as her inspiration.

Reaction to the costume was pretty much split directly into ‘Kim Kardashian can’t dress up as Aaliyah, she’s an icon’ and ‘At least Kim brought attention to Aaliyah again’, but when a few labelled the costume as racist and offensive, Kim defended her decision in an update on her website.

“When I was deciding what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I narrowed down to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah,” she wrote (via Billboard).

“Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend. I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone.

“When I was creating the costume, I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire. I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists.”

Kim also then pointed out that she loved her joint costume with sister Kourtney this year too, where the duo dressed as Michael Jackson and Madonna at the 1991 Academy Awards.

“We don’t see [colour] in my home,” she continued. “We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect— it’s that simple!”

Aaliyah was best known as a singer and actress before she tragically died in 2001 along with eight others in a plane crash in the Bahamas.

The song behind Kim’s inspiration,’Try Again’, was recorded in 2000 for the Romeo Must Die soundtrack, and you can watch the original video right here:

Kim Kardashian’s FULL INTERVIEW on Jimmy Kimmel with guest host Jennifer Lawrence



With Jimmy out this week, his pal Jennifer stepped in to host for the night.
Jennifer Lawrence’s Kardashian dream has come true! The Oscar winner and Kardashian superfan guest-hosted “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and fangirled guest Kim Kardashian while asking her about everything including Kanye, Blac Chyna, her famous family and more. But Kim’s the one who broke the ice on JLaw and Kris Jenner’s, um, close friendship!

Kim Kardashian Apologizes For Offensive Aaliyah Costume

Kim Kardashian’s apologizing for her most controversial Halloween costume.

This year, Kardashian outdid herself, earning the title of Queen of Halloween with the many extravagant costumes she wore. Over the span of five days, the star stepped out in four costumes inspired by her favorite music icons of all time — legends Cher, Madonna, Selena Quintanilla and Aaliyah. But the Internet was not pleased to see Kardashian channeling the late ’90s R&B singer, accusing her of being insensitive or offensive with her choice of costume. “Legend or not Aaliyah is a black woman and you’re not,” wrote one Twitter user.

Though the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star didn’t respond at the time about her decision to wear the crystal choker, bejeweled bra and black pants the R&B legend wore in her “Try Again” video, today Kardashian opened up on her app – and apologized to those who were hurt by it.

“When I was deciding what I wanted to be for Halloween this year, I had a lot of ideas that I narrowed down to musical icons and my second costume was Aaliyah,” Kardashian wrote on her website. “The look was inspired by what she wore in her ‘Try Again’ music video. I wore a custom bra top and J Brand leather pants. Ariel Tejada did my makeup and Chris Appleton did my hair.

“Aaliyah was such an amazing singer and she will forever be a music legend. I saw online that some people thought my costume was in poor taste and I am truly sorry if that offended anyone,” the star said. 

“When I was creating the costume, I wasn’t dressing up as a race or culture but rather as a woman whom I will always admire. I play every kind of genre of music in my home and I like for my kids to be exposed to many different artists,” she continued.

Kardashian compared dressing up as Aaliyah to her older sister Kourtney Kardashian, who dressed as African American pop legend Michael Jackson, and her son Saint, who channeled Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose this year.

“For me, it’s always about love and respect. I loved that Kourtney was Michael Jackson for one of her costumes, and that my son was Axl Rose,” she said. “We don’t see color in my home. We were paying homage to people and artists we love and respect— it’s that simple!”

Jennifer Lawrence Grills Idol Kim Kardashian on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

Jennifer Lawrence relished her role as guest host on Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night, deep-diving into an interview with her “utter obsession, our Lord Jesus God,” Kim Kardashian.

The self-professed Kardashian super fan kicked off the night with a punchy monologue that tackled everything from the Hollywood wage gap (“It was an honor to be asked to fill in for Jimmy tonight. I was so excited to do this; I even told the producers, ‘I don’t even want any money for this.’ And they said, ‘No, Jennifer, we insist on paying you … 29 percent less than the male guest hosts.'”) to fans’ utter unfamiliarity with her work (a Billy on the Street-esque game, “Name Five of Jennifer Lawrence’s Movies,” fell flat with strangers on Hollywood Boulevard.)

And when it came time for Lawrence to chat with Kardashian, she kept the funny cranked up to high as she tackled some pretty wild topics with much aplomb.

“Do you think it’s a coincidence that Reggie Bush’s wife looks just like you?” Lawrence began the interview, referring to one of Kardashian’s famous exes, NFL player Reggie Bush. “I don’t.” (To be fair, Bush’s wife Lilit Avagyan is a dead ringer for Kardashian.)

Kardashian laughed off the comment, but didn’t shy away from Lawrence’s other probing questions.

“So do you and Kanye fart in front of each other?” Lawrence asked at one point. “Do you talk about farts? Like, do you fart in front of him?”

The reality star responded with a coy smile, “I don’t fart. What are you talking about?”

At another point in the chat, Lawrence asked Kardashian whether she thought she might be able to save the world with her amateur hacking skills. (Kardashian confessed to hacking into her friends’ boyfriends’ voicemails back in the day to dig up any incriminating dirt).

“So do you think that you could, like, hack a president’s Twitter and maybe, like, start a war?” Lawrence asked. “Like, you could save the world?” Instead of directly answering the question, Kardashian took a slight detour and remembered a game that her family had played at mom Kris Jenner’s house, asking each other who they would rather sleep with of the world’s leaders, Donald Trump or Kim Jun Un.

“I think we were just laughing so hard we didn’t choose,” Kardashian said.

But perhaps the highlight of the interview was when Kardashian and Lawrence recalled a recent dinner party at Jenner’s home, during which guest Lawrence proceeded to get sloshed and wound up naked in a closet.

“I’ve never seen my mom more drunk in our lives,” Kardashian said of seeing Jenner and Lawrence dancing arm in arm after many margaritas. “It was so funny.”

Lawrence confessed that she just wanted to get a makeover from Kardashian and West. Kardashian admitted to remembering the request – but slightly differently.

“You said, ‘I’m not joking. I really want Kanye to style me, and so I said, ‘OK,'” Kardashian said. “I come back in and you’re fully butt naked. I said, ‘Umm, I’m going to intercom down and tell [Kanye] not to come up.'”

Taylor Swift New Song & Relationship Details, Jennifer Lawrence Interviews Kim Kardashian | PeopleTV

All the Things We Learned from Jennifer Lawrence’s Interview with Kim Kardashian

Jennifer Lawrence had the opportunity any superfan would only dream of – interviewing their favorite celebrity about anything—and no topic was hands-off.

The actress, 27, filled in as guest host on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, and had a wide-ranging conversation with her favorite reality star Kim Kardashian West, whom she has been watching on Keeping Up with the Kardashians since its inception.

From her thoughts on Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber‘s rekindled friendship to her favorite KarJenner sibling and what’s husband Kanye West‘s weirdest habit, Kardashian West, 37, held nothing back to answer all of the Oscar winner’s “deeply personal” inquiries. (Even revealing that one hilarious time Lawrence and momager Kris Jenner got drunk together recently.)

Here is everything we learnt during the interview.

http://people.com/

Lawrence and Kardashian West First Met at the Greenwich Hotel in New York.

“We were at a hotel in New York and we were going up to see this Axel Vervoordt suite at the Greenwich and I’m getting in the elevator with Kanye and the doors are about to close. I hear Jennifer screaming ‘I love your show’ like so loud across the whole lobby,” the mother of two recalled.

The Reality Star Has Put Her Amateur Spy Days Behind Her.

“I’m fully retired but I used to be the go-to spy that everyone would call and try to get info on their boyfriends or husbands,” Kardashian West said. (Remember when she got into sister Khloé Kardashian‘s ex Rashad McCants’ voicemail in season 4?)

“I just probably was in an insecure, untrusting relationship and had to form my skills,” she told Lawrence. “We’re screwed now that’s there’s texting because no one leaves voicemails anymore but I got some major dirt back in the day.”

Who Would Kim and J. Law Rather?

“Do you think you could hack a president’s Twitter and maybe stop a war? You could save the world in theory,” the actress asked before Kardashian West remembered a specific question she was prompted during the pair’s recent dinner together.

“If you could save the world who would you rather sleep with: Donald Trump or Kim Jong-Un? I think we were just laughing so hard we didn’t choose,” the KUWTK star said. 

“Oh that’s impossible, I probably made you choose. I get very aggressive when I’m drunk,” Lawrence responded.

The stars then burst into laughter and forgot to answer the question that made them giggle in the first place.

Kim Has a Favorite Sibling (for Now)

As for if she were ever to get stranded on a desert island with her family, she would kill Khloé last. “It might be Khloé because I feel like she’ll kill me,” Kardashian West said.

“We all go through periods, and her and I are really vibing right now,” she said about her pregnant sister, who is expecting her first child with NBA boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

The KarJenner Christmas Card Tradition Will Continue!

“It’s making its return! You are welcome to attend,” Kim told J. Law.

Thoughts on sister Kourtney Kardashian‘s one-time rumored fling Bieber getting back together with Gomez?

“I think it’s so cute,” Kardashian West admitted.

Who of All Her Sisters Lost Their Virginity First?

“Probably me. But I was in a serious relationship. It wasn’t Kourtney,” Kim said.

Has She Ever Been Cheated On? If So, How Did She Find Out?

“I got into the voicemail thing and I was at dinner with all of my best friends. I put it on speaker wondering where my boyfriend was. He was flying in town to meet another girl on my birthday and lied to me that he was in a different city,” the KKW Beauty creator remembered to which Lawrence responded: “Oh my god, that’s like a Taylor Swift song.”

No snake emojis here.

One Ex-Boyfriend’s Number Is Still in Her Phone.

“He’s super friendly, he lives right across the street from Kourtney. We never really talk but the nicest family. I went to his wedding,” Kardashian West revealed.

Most Incorrect Rumor She’s Ever Heard of Herself?

“I don’t know I start to believe them all, there’s so many,” she confessed.

What’s the Weirdest Thing Kanye Does?

“He falls asleep anywhere. We’ll be at a meeting or he’ll introduce me to people I’ve never met before, we’ll be at a restaurant and he’ll be snoring at the table,” the rapper’s wife of over three years said.

Kimye Leads a Low-Key Private Life

“We are super normal. We watch Family Feud every night before we fall asleep,” Kardashian West confessed. 

Has She Spoken to O.J. Simpson Since He Was Released from Prison in October?

“I haven’t. I haven’t talked to him in years. I think I saw him at a club in Miami like a decade ago,” the daughter of the late Robert Kardashian Sr. said.

In fact, she doesn’t particularly discuss O.J. at all.

“I have so much respect for his children. I feel like my mom and Caitlyn [Jenner] both say a lot about it and they’re really vocal. And I just feel like, you know, his kids. It must be like really hard. I just try to stay away from it,” she said.

Kanye’s Special Song

“There’s one he hasn’t released but he sang it at the Met called ‘Awesome.’ Before we got together he had played it for me when he was recording Watch the Throne,” she said. “And when I was pregnant at my first Met Ball he performed it to me.”

KUWTK viewers got a first listen of the song during the Kim’s Journey to the Altar special in August 2014.

Kim’s Next Surrogate Could Be J. Law!

“How did you pick your surrogate and why didn’t you ask me?” Lawrence asked Kardashian West, who responded: “I’ll know if I do it again.”

Thoughts on Blac Chyna?

“I always said when someone is going to ask me: Dream is going to see this one day and so it’s just super respectful not to say anything about my niece’s mom,” Kim said.

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights (11:35 p.m. ET).

The cards have often featured all of the family members. But they don’t always return.

Lamar Odom was in at one point as was Scott Disick.  

Bruce Jenner was also a staple. But Bruce, who is now Caitlyn, won’t be back.

According to InTouch Weekly, Cait has fallen out so badly with the family over the comments made in her book that she is not only out of the Christmas card but she also is not a part of the new $150m Keeping Up With The Kardashians deal with E!
