Elton John Trashes Kim Kardashian, Reality Television

Pop icon Elton John has gone on a tirade trashing reality star Kim Kardashian and indirectly reality television for “killing talent.” John, who has always been outspoken, saved his harshest criticism for English performers like Cheryl Cole , The Saturdays and pop music in general.

But he reached across the Atlantic to single out Kardashian, who with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, have become the reigning queens of reality television, stacking up myriad endorsements and multi-million dollar incomes.

As far as John, 63, is concerned, the Kardashians are crap. “Who the f*ck is Kim Kardashian?” he told UK magazine The Word. ‘Some stupid old tart from somewhere. Reality has killed talent.”

Kardashian has had a midas touch for parlaying little or no talent into a lucrative career that began with a sex tape. Since then, she has built a legion of loyal fans through her show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”

Kim is currently in a new reality show, “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” which premiered Jan. 30.

As far as comtemporary pop musicians, “Frankly, they all sound the same,” he said. “It’s hard to tell Girls Aloud from The Saturdays. And then there’s Cheryl Cole… it’s all c**p.”

“British pop music like that is the worst, it’s just awful, it could have been made by anybody,” John said.

‘The records I love are all about musicianship,” he added. “When you put a bunch of musicians in a room together there’s human soul, there’s magic in there. That’s not happening now.”

    He’s right. A real talent like Elton John is entitled to bash people like Kim Kardashian.

  • Lalita

    Elton John has more talent in his pinky than the whole Whoredashian family. He has earned the right to speak out as a “real celebrity” against these wannabe’s. Whoredashians admitted to Barbara Walters they have no talent.

    It’s BS, your 15 minutes are over.

    Who the fuck is Elton John?? He is a sad old fart who’s just jealous.. Who does he think he is talking crap about someone else. It because of people like him the world is such a ugly place. Leave everybody else alone. Everyone deserves a bit of happiness. Some more than others, that’s just the way it is. All you can do is try to create your own luck. But if stupid assholes like Elton criticizes everybody where will all dreams go??

    So Elton, if your sad because you don’t have your own reality TV show, don’t be. Do something about it man..

    Peace..

    Thank you, Elton. The attraction to the Kardashian family is a huge mystery. When I see Kim showing up at award events (Oscars, etc.), I have to wonder why the industry does that to itself.
