    Kim Kardashian - paid $500,000 to make 45 secs appearance on stage in Nigeria

    http://www.article.com.ng/news/so-ki...ge-in-nigeria/

    Despite staying less than a day in the city of Lagos, she was paid a reported $500,000 for her fleeting visit, angering some commentators in the African country.

    [...]

    Guardian blogger Jeremy Weate described how Kim’s visit was an example of the country’s economic elite ‘blowing its money on bling puffery while most of the country suffers’.

    He wrote: ‘Ms Kardashian appeared, said, “Hey Naija” and vamoosed. The rumour was that she’d been paid 500,000 Benjamins for the honour of mixing with the petro-class.’

    Commentators in the country made reference to Kim’s infamous sex tape as they queried why a woman of dubious ‘moral rating’ should be in the country at all.

    This Day newspaper’s Eddy Odivwri wrote: ‘Many families are not exactly comfortable with her lifestyle, as she hardly cuts the image of a role model to a generation in need of a moral dress up.’

    So, basicly, a porn star (and I'm kinda' using an euphemism here, she's a whore), 'celebrity' wannabe gets payed an obscene sum of money for basically nothing, while people are starving in the "streets".
    What the f*** is wrong with our world? Are there any morals left?
    Discuss.

    Two things.

    It's Africa. It's pretty much beyond saving at this point.

    And second, it's the Kardashians who whore out for money

    Have a think about this. 45 minutes of Kim Kardashian's time is worth half a million dollars. In a free market, something is worth what people are willing to pay for it. Whoever it was that paid her was willing to shell out that much money for 45 minutes of her time. How much would people pay for 45 minutes of your time, Mr Angry Judgemental Internet Person? Nothing. So for all the furious nasty insults you throw at her, she's worth a lot more than you are. A LOT.

    That's society's honest assessment of what she's worth. Moan all you like, she's clearly worth it. It's not like this is the only immense endorsement she's received. If you think you're so much better than she is, why don't you go out there and create a media image that's worth millions of dollars? It's easy right?

    All it would take is making a porn video with a rapper that few people remember.

    500k for 45 seconds. Not minutes.

    Doesn't mean the people that pay her are right in the head. Or the drones that follow her every move on TV. Think about the average person. Half of the world is dumber than that.
    I'm not saying I am, but how is she exactly contributing to society? Please enlighten me.
    I'm waiting for the day when professor Hawking or professor Kaku will be payed 1/10 of this amount for a speech. Of any length. Or even a donation for their research.

    The article clearly states she stayed at the event for 45 minutes and made a 45 second statement with a microphone. I get you and others are just looking for a target to bash but you could at least get the facts correct. She also isn't a porn star or anything close to one. And she's done nothing worse then all the other people that were at the same event she was at.

    The article is nothing but a slander piece bashing her and apparently American morality.

    So what we can learn from this is that a free market is a terrible system?

    I didn't, you did by bringing up an article that brings those very things into question. Also calling her simply a porn star and a whore already shows that you went there. Why are you unwilling to discuss the things you've brought up?

    Shes made money off a pornographic tape. There isnt a huge line differentiating the two.

    Yet, these are facts.
    I've tried to avoid associating her with USA, cause people will go apeshit on "why are you bashing our beloved country". Like you are. And then, the mods will swoop in and close the topic.
    It doesn't matter that she's an american 'star'. That's the luck of the draw.

    That tape is the only reason why she became famous.

    So? That doesn't make her a porn star or a whore. Video taping yourself having sex isn't the same as being a porn star. Nor does that make you a whore for making money off of it. She didn't sell it herself but she made money off of it after she sued those that were selling it against her will.

    She isn't a porn star. One sex tape that was stolen/sold against her will isn't the same thing is doing pornography. Nor does that make her a whore anymore then any other person in the world that has had sex. You are throwing around insults and setting the tone for this discussion. You further set that tone by using an article that specifically uses her as an example of how American morality is bad.

    I never said you were bashing America, I said the article is. There is again a huge difference.

    Actually, you can check around... her mother's signature is on the tape contract. The whole 'suing' was thrown in public to gather even more attention.
    It doesn't matter. She gained status and money.

    Right because when you have no legal ground a company will just settle a lawsuit by handing you 5 million dollars. Do you equally think your girlfriend is a whore when you take her out on a date and then sleep with her? Status and money being gained still doesn't make her a porn star or a whore.
