Kim Kardashian appears on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar dressed as a sultry Cleopatra, and that’s no accident. The reality star interviewed the silver screen’s original Cleopatra, Elizabeth Taylor, and gained some valuable insight into life — and love — in the process.
Kim asked Liz a lighthearted yet somewhat snotty sounding question: “You are my idol. But I’m six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?”
Instead of smacking her across the face, Liz gave a gracious answer.
“I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands. For me, life happened, just as it does for anyone else. I have been supremely lucky in my life in that I have known great love, and of course I am the temporary custodian of some incredible and beautiful things. But I have never felt more alive than when I watched my children delight in something, never more alive than when I have watched a great artist perform, and never richer than when I have scored a big check to fight AIDS. Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come.”
Is Kim Kardashian following her passion? If shopping, club appearances and reality shows could be passions, she’s definitely on the right track.
