Pop Emergency: Kylie’s New Jenneration

Over the past few weeks, we’ve received several distressed notes from students requesting help understanding current events. With this week’s katastrophe, we decided it’s time for a Pop Emergency.

Kylie Jenner is pregnant. Hillsong Church is a networking hotspot. Mother! was a hoot. Taylor Swift aint sh**. We discuss these issues and more in today’s lecture.

Conspiracy Theories 1101: Kontrolling the Kardashians

Professors Hannah and Maddie examine the rise and perpetuation of the Kardashian Klan’s fame. Does their celebrity stem from a government plot? Could it be a purposed, extended Illuminati konspiracy? Or, is Kris Jenner truly the best hustler of all time? We weigh competing theses, and discuss Ray J’s thirst, copycat stardom, and why MKUltra needs to just quit it with the brainwashing.

Your reading list is here. Please note, many conspiracy theory sites are sketchy. Research at your own risk.
