Kim Kardashian, needer of attention, bringer of sorrow, tweeted the above (rather dated-looking) vanity shot along with the caption, “Gluten free is the way to be….OH Hiiiiiiiiiiii.” If anyone’s been following along with one of Kim’s 6000 television projects, speak up: Is Kim actually following a gluten-free diet? Did she see all the attention Miley Cyrus got and sprang into action?
Whenever a celebrity goes gluten-free, we get two kinds of responses in the comment threads. 1) Crazy people who are angry at us/the world for marginalizing gluten allergies as some kind of fad diet… and 2) people with actual gluten allergies who are pissed that yet another celebrity has jumped on the gluten-free bandwagon, thereby contributing to its overall marginalization (with a little bittersweet appreciation thrown in thanks to the increasing availability of gluten-free products). Before you enter the comments, choose wisely.
Obviously, Kim abstaining from gluten has absolutely nothing to do with how relentlessly Photoshopped this image is.
