Well, we may envy Kim Kardashian‘s and Lady Gaga‘s fame and fortune (and wardrobe), but maybe we should be happy not to be them. In separate magazine interviews, both ladies sound pretty downtrodden when it comes to love.
While admitting to “hopeless romantic” tendencies, divorcee-to-be Kim says in Glamour’s January issue, “I think I need to not live in a fairy tale like that. I think I maybe need to just snap out of it and be a little more realistic.”
While her split from Kris Humphries has meant big ratings for Kourtney & Kim Take New York, Kim seems quite serious about the personal cost of her breakup. “At this moment in my life, I feel like maybe I’m not supposed to have kids and all that,” she tells the magazine. “That’s how I feel. Maybe my fairy tale has a different ending than I dreamed it would. But that’s OK.”
While we doubt Lady Gaga was ever the “fairy tale romance” kind of girl, she too sounds pretty disillusioned about her prospects in January’s Vanity Fair. “I have an inability to know what happiness feels like with a man,” she says dramatically. “Perhaps it’s a whose-dick-is-bigger contest. If I go to the piano and write a quick song and play it back, they are angry with how fast and effortless it is.”
Gaga continues to lament the woes of relationships with less-secure men: “I think what it really is, is that I date creative people. And I think that what intimidates them is not my purse; it’s my mind.”
Sure, it all sounds a bit cocky, excuse the phrase, but both Gaga and Kim have a point here. Some men can’t handle being with women who outshine them, and you’ve got to admire the ladies who won’t compromise who they are just so Prince Charming will feel better about himself. Famous Girl Power!
