You may love Kim Kardashian, or you may hate her, but you can’t deny that she’s heavily influenced pop culture in many ways.
Sex tapes - Kim was not the first to have a sex tape leak, but she was the first to capitalize on it the way she did. That tape led to her hit show and the Kardashian/Jenner/West empire.
Reality Television Gold - There were reality shows before Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but very few have been as mainstream and successful.
Being A Celebrity - At the beginning of her career, Kim was famous for just being famous. She took that and ran with it and is now one of the most prominent influencers on the planet. She also paved the way for "influencer" to become a thing.
Selfie - Yes, Kim didn't invent the selfie, but she made that way of taking photos the norm.
Love Your Curves - Curves have always been a thing, but Kim and her sisters took embracing them to a whole new level.
Breaking The Internet - The popular term wasn't new, but it exploded after Kim posed with her bum out on Paper magazine.
