Kim Kardashian Explaining Why She’s Famous to North West is Seriously Hilarious

Ah, the innocence of a child.

There are full grown adults who have been keeping up with Kardashians and their antics since the beginning. But even some of these super fans have to pause a minute before answering the age-old question: Why exactly are the Kardashians so famous?

The answer is a bit murky and lies somewhere within the realm of curvaceous bodies and scandalous sex tapes. Of course, Kim K had to know that one day her own child would ask this very question and that she’d have to think of a quick, honest reply without necessarily explaining the birds and the bees to someone so young.

Her response to her 5-year-old daughter North West is seriously epic. Read on to see what she said.

Kim Kardashian managed to be honest without revealing too much

The new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians may include a heavy dose of Khloe/Tristan Thompson/Jordyn Woods cheating drama, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in lighter moments, too. Like the time North is shown on camera asking her mom about the paparazzi following their car.

The scene shows Kim and North in the car being chased by a horde of photographers anxious to snap a shot of them. North West turns to her mom and says, “Why are there lots of people every day taking pictures of us?”

And Kim quickly answers, “Well, to get very technical — my name is Kim Kardashian. And daddy is Kanye West. And daddy is a singer. Performer. Artiste.”

She goes on: “And mommy has so many talents I can’t even begin to name them.”

This isn’t the first time North West wondered about fame

Growing up as the firstborn daughter of a performer artiste and a reality show star, it’s logical to assume North is used to the attention by now. But North is reaching an age where she’s probably starting to notice the differences between her life experience and other people’s.

On a radio interview, Kim said North posed this exact question before, though that time she got a slightly different answer in response.

As Kim explained, “She was like, ‘Mom, why are you famous?’ And I was like, ‘Oh. OK. I’m going to have to explain this.’ And I’m like, ‘We have a TV show.’ And she was like, ‘Oh…OK.'”

North West has a sense of humor about it

Rather than be frightened or embarrassed by the attention (presumably that will come during teenage years), North has started turning it into a type of joke. Kim said during a different interview that her sassy firstborn was literally taunting photographers at one point.

Kim said: “The other day I took North to a wedding and she was rolling down the window and going: ‘Kim Kardashian’s in here!’ like, screaming to all the drivers, saying: ‘Hi! I’m North West! Kanye West is my dad!’ And I was just, like, ‘Oh my gosh,’ rolling up the window and putting on the child-lock.”

Sounds like North West is perfectly cut out for living that fame life.
