OK, to the untrained eye, it may appear that all we need do is put up a post about, oh, I don't know... baked beans, every now and then, and our followers will lap it up, maintaining our status as internet superstars.

If you haven't been keeping up with the Kardashians/living under a rock, here's a business update from their head office: the youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, is setting the cosmetic industry alight.

Is Reality Television A Legitimate Art Form?

Whether you love it or hate it, there's no denying that reality television has a firm grasp over modern culture, perhaps more so than any other art form. In fact, it wouldn't be an overstatement to say it has changed the world... surely that makes it legitimate?

Body Shaming Vs Censorship: The Problem With Protein World's Khloe Kardashian Advert

Anna Tippett | Posted 17.02.2017 | UK Lifestyle
Anna Tippett

However, should we as a society be concerned about the implications of this? Do such adverts really contribute to a culture of body shaming which places unrealistic expectations on young women and girls? And, if such adverts are to be removed or censored, where do we draw the line?

The Kardashians Vs The Queen - What Is An Icon?

Rachel Fernie | Posted 17.01.2017 | UK Entertainment
Rachel Fernie

Being an icon is about breaking boundaries and changing mass perceptions through actions and achievements. Surely it is insulting to scientists and medical pioneers to call Kim Kardashian an icon, when they are inventing, developing and saving lives on a daily basis.

Iceland Isn't In Space But It's The Closest You'll Ever Come To Walking On The Moon

Upon landing, I was met with acres and acres of sprawling desolate land. It was cragged, fractured - but solid in it's base. It looked to the naked eye like it had won a long, hard fought duel with nature's unpredictability.

You Really Aren't As Unattractive As You Think You Are

I know I'm guilty of it, my 13 year old is guilty of it, heck I know my mother is guilty of it, we can't help it. This is something that we HAVE to work on, the TV isn't going to disappear, we can't avoid all of the glossy magazines

The Kardashians Can Help Your New Year's Resolutions

If your guilty pleasure is watching The Kardashians, then forbid yourself to watch it unless you're on a treadmill. The same goes for dieting: tell yourself you can only watch Judge Rinder if you've had a salad, and new associations will take shape in your brain.

I Believe I Am Blameless For My Vanity

Leah Anya Gavron

Deciding to believe I am beautiful, and maxing out my student overdraft on clothes in order to fulfill this perception of myself, was an act of vanity, but I am tired of being ashamed of it. Being born with all the inevitable baggage that comes with being a girl is not a crime.

Kim Kardashian Is Suing A Gossip Website Over Claims She Faked Her Robbery

Taylor S and Kim K

Lily Lovett | Posted 23.07.2017 | UK Entertainment
Lily Lovett

Swift reminds me of a Queen Bee in secondary school. The head of the cool group that holds the power to approve or deny entry to the posse. Say what you want about Kim and Kanye but they are brutally open and honest, often to the point where it's shocking and socially frowned upon... I rate that raw (and sometimes embarrassing and socially awkward) honesty more than people being fake or lying. At least you know where you stand.

In Defence of the Kardashians

Emma Kelly | Posted 02.05.2017 | UK Entertainment
Emma Kelly

No, Kylie Jenner taking a selfie is not endangering the future of humanity. Neither is her big sister Kim taking a naked picture, or posing with a champagne glass balanced on her backside. I reckon politicians banning 3,000 refugee children from the country, or taking away free healthcare, is more likely to endanger humanity, but that's just me... Get off your high horses, and stop blaming teens and celeb culture for the way the world is. Just because someone is taking a pouty selfie filtered to the gods, doesn't mean they're not smart and can't make a difference.

Tennis, Tea and Trying to Keep Up With the Kardashians

If you asked me what I loved most about my job, I would say the variety; no day is ever the same. Since London Fashion Week, work has taken me to play tennis at Wimbledon, discover the Kardashian's beauty secrets from one of their makeup artists, and even watch a chocolate themed orchestra, so I thought I'd tell you all about it.

How Do You Solve a Problem Like the Kim Kardashian Paradox?

We need a society that can praise all these different women, with their many different ways of empowering themselves. Some may get naked to feel confident and empowered, but others may emphasise their career success, their financial gain or their academic achievements. Or they may do all of the above; after all, women are not one-dimensional beings, just like men.

I Am More Than My Instagram Profile

Don't get me wrong, I love instagram as much as the next coffee-drinking selfie-obsessed girl. But sadly, there comes a point where I have to admit my amaro-tinted glasses need to be removed, for the good of everyone.

Being a Labour Councillor Is Just Like Being a Kardashian, Isn't It?

Leon Spence | Posted 07.01.2017 | UK Politics
Leon Spence

Labour has become something far removed from the party I joined. It's not necessarily worse than my Labour, though my inclination is that it is, but it's different enough for me to feel that it I don't know it anymore.

Why Kim Kardashian Is Good For Feminism

Natasha Barrett | Posted 12.08.2016 | UK Universities & Education

Considering that Kim is the most followed woman on Instagram and she and her family have monopolised the media so enormously, shouldn't we be glad that of all the people to achieve this, these are the messages young people are receiving from the Kardashians?
