Kim Kardashian covers the new issue of Rolling Stone dressed as a busty sailor who escaped from the set of a Pussycat Dolls video, and in the accompanying interview, she answered the most important question she's ever been asked: *NSYNC or Backstreet Boys? In high school, you see, Kim loved both legendary boy bands - "really obsessed," as she puts it - but as everyone knows, you can only have one favorite. So which is it? Drum roll, please. According to Kim, she was "more of a Backstreet girl." Do you think she's seen that documentary about them? Kim, if you're reading this, watch it immediately, because it is both hilarious and surprisingly poignant.
Another interesting revelation from the article is the fact that Kim, despite having access to endless money and technology, enjoys burning her favorite songs to good, old-fashioned CD-Rs. "I still make mix CDs," she said. "I have an older computer with a disk drive so I can do it." Receivers of said mix CDs can expect to hear plenty of Michael Jackson, Snoop Dogg, Jodeci, and Mary J. Blige, so long as Kim is in a nostalgic mood - those were some of her favorites growing up.
Kim also discussed her brother Rob, whose continued absence from Keeping Up With the Kardashians has left people wondering what's up with him. "It's not that mysterious, what's happening with Rob," Kim explained to RS. "He has gained weight. He feels uncomfortable being on the show, and that's OK. Do I think he smokes weed, drinks beer, hangs out and plays video games with his friends all day long? Yes." So there you go.
As for the infamous sex tape that initially made her famous, Kim says she doesn't really think about it anymore. "I thought about it for a long time," she admitted. "But when I get over something, I get over it." The experience apparently didn't bring her any closer to old friend Paris Hilton, who dealt with similar sex tape drama back in the early aughts. "We didn't really talk about it," Kim said. "I probably would have thought, 'Oh, my gosh, let me give her advice,' but we had no communication. But our friendship had fizzled before that." And what a shame it did. There's always time to rekindle it, ladies!
