What, No Ray J? Kim K. Says She Wouldn't be Famous "Without the Internet"
Give credit where due!
In an interview with Paper Magazine, Kim and Khloe Kardashian - who have already addressed the issue of having no talent - discussed their rise to fame and the help the internet played in making it happen.
With a combined Twitter following of over 21 million, and well-maintained websites that are filled with personal family photos, the two sisters' addiction may have something to do with knowing that their fans hang on to their every (scripted) word.

Paper: Do you think you guys would have become famous without the Internet?
Kim: I don't think so. I think a lot of our fanbase, and a lot of our connection with people is Internet-based. I think that the Internet has brought on a different kind of celebrity. We are very well aware of who we are, and what our place is. We are so active on Twitter, on our Facebook pages, we are writing back, we are connecting. We enjoy it.
Khloe: It took me a long time to get on Twitter. Kim was the one who got me on it during a trip to Mexico.
Kim: Ryan Seacrest was like, "You've got to get on Twitter. Just try it. Please." So I went to Mexico, and got the craziest sunburn. I tweeted a picture of it, and within an hour it was on CNN in Mexico. I was like, "I don't understand this," but I've been addicted ever since.
We don't understand it either.
