Was Kylie's Pregnancy The Biggest Publicity Stunt In History?

The Devil works hard, but Kris Jenner works harder.

Was Kylie's Pregnancy The Biggest Publicity Stunt In History?
Kylie Jenner's Instagram

On February 5th, the world was shook. After months and months of denial and complete media avoidance, Kylie Jenner emerged. She revealed that for the past 9 months she has been carrying Travis Scott's child, and gave birth to a baby girl on February 1st, 2018. She came out to the world in an Instagram post and apologized for keeping her fans in the dark about her pregnancy, then going on to explain that she wanted to prepare for this journey out of the media's eye and without judgment. In her Instagram announcement, she even included a link to a Youtube video following her 9-month journey.

Fans were completely shocked. Not only because the secret had finally come out after months of speculation, but because of the way it came out. Fans and critics all believed that the reveal would be in some sort of huge, crazy PR stunt. But, the Kardashian-Jenner clan decided to release a simple Youtube video.

This big reveal has left the world with so many questions. How did they pull this off? And how has everyone been able to keep it a secret? The Kardashian-Jenner clan have always lived their lives in the public eye, with every one of their moves being tracked and documented by their show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians. It is honestly amazing that the celebrity family was able to keep this under wraps. Perhaps they paid off news stations, tabloids, and photographers who captured the pregnant Kylie, but either way, this celebrity pregnancy will go down in history as one of the most effective ways to gain publicity.

No matter how hard the Kardashian-Jenner fam had to work to keep it a secret, the results have been a phenomenal PR stunt. You know the old saying that you want something you can't have? Well, that's exactly what the Kardashians are doing with the Kylie pregnancy. The public is used to gaining access to every aspect of the Kardashians life, so when we are suddenly restricted on the info we are able to obtain, we want it even more.

No matter the exact motivation for this hushed pregnancy was, Kudos to the Kardashian-Jenner clan for knowing how to keep us on the edge of our seats. All hail Kris Jenner, the queen of publicity!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
