It’s rare that a celebrity interviewer manages to cut through the noise and get straight to the heart of the matter, so we have to applaud pint-size interviewer Sid, whose candid interview with mobile mogul/mom’s friend Kim Kardashian managed to capture the elusive quality of modern celebrity in just four brief exchanges.
Sid plunges right into things:
Sid: “Why are you on the cover of magazines.”
Kim: “Why am I? I dunno, because I like magazines.”
The line of questioning continued, getting more and more probing:
Sid: “Are you famous?”
Kim: “Am I famous? Um, I don’t like to use that term.”
Like a young Jake Tapper, Sid knows the value of a follow-up question:
Sid: “How are you famous?”
Kim: “How am I famous? That’s up for question too.”
And, of course, the kicker:
Unlike male celebrity interviewers before him, the young reporter does not try to peg Kim’s essential nature but lets her answers speak for themselves. Sid, we sense a bright future for you at Vanity Fair come 2035.
