Kendall Jenner and Pepsi pissed off the world

pepsi-sm

Unless you have been living under a rock the last 24 hours, you are probably part of the millions that are pissed to the point where they are boycotting the brand. Now, you know American are angry when they openly boycott their soda pop. Time to chat about what Kendall Jenner and Pepsi did.

The ad features “Keeping Up with The Kardashians” star joining in a protest in a middle of a photo shoot and hand a police officer a Pepsi. The officer smiles and everyone at the protest cheers. Apparently, the person who came up with this idea didn’t really think it through. People are criticizing the ad because it shows privilege white model calming tensions between protesters and the police. Pepsi stated:

“This is a global ad that reflects people from different walks of life coming together in a spirit of harmony. We think that’s an important message to convey.”

I think we should be more upset that Pepsi tried to make us believe that Kendall Jenner would do something like that. While she seems like a “lovely person,” I really don’t see Kendall joining a protest – let alone physically touch a can of Pepsi. And let’s be real, those police officers aren’t drinking Pepsi. Look at how fit they are, they probably don’t touch that stuff. And there would be people to stop Kendall from joining it. People would jump her from the first sighting.

In all seriousness, I think Pepsi had the right idea and try to make an ad that would appeal to all and bring people together. It just wasn’t pulled off in the right way. If you would have replaced Kendall with a child, then there probably wouldn’t be such pissed off people. But because they chose the person that most people would place under the definition of white privilege, the meaning of it changed. Like I have stated before multiple times, Kendall and her family are the closest things one would consider to be “royalty.” It’s not like Queen Elizabeth royalty but still, royalty nevertheless. All of them using the fame brought by Kim Kardashian’s sex tape as well as Robert Kardashian Sr.’s fame from the OJ Simpson trial. And let’s not forget about Caitlyn Jenner’s Olympic medals. They are very much privileged. While they have worked hard for what they have, it’s not as hard as the rest of America. While others started the race at the starting line, the Kardashian/Jenner clan started in the middle of the race.

Now when I first saw the ad, it was the shorter version of it and I really didn’t see what the big fuss was. It wasn’t until I saw the entire ad that I then saw why people were pissed off. Like I said, Pepsi had the right idea. It just wasn’t carried out in the way they intended. Have another person who’s not famous for being famous, I hate saying that but it’s true to a point, and the message they wanted to portray would have been right on. This all comes down to poor casting. Pepsi should probably stick to musical ads. It was what they were best at. Let’s have more Britney Spears singing and dancing to Pepsi.

While I was writing this, Pepsi pulled the ad. They released the following statement:

Pepsi was trying to project a global message of unity, peace and understanding. Clearly we missed the mark, and we apologize. We did not intend to make light of any serious issue. We are removing the content and halting any further rollout. We also apologize for putting Kendall Jenner in this position.

It’s Caitlyn, bitch!

Caitlyn

After weeks/months of speculating about what Bruce Jenner’s female counterpart would look like, we finally got the reveal with her cover of Vanity Fair. So now introducing Caitlyn Jenner:

The magazine cover comes after Caitlyn Jenner revealed to Diane Sawyer that she is a transgender and preparing to transition into the woman from a man. This would later being document in an extremely well done two-part episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” where it should the human side of the family and how they were coming to terms with Caitlyn’s secret.

Since Vanity Fair released the cover to show Caitlyn and her beauty, the internet world has shown their support with praises and compliments. They even got #CallMeCaitlyn trending on twitter.

I’m really proud of Caitlyn and that she’s finally happy and able to the live that she has always wanted to live.

The Vanity Fair issue with Caitlyn is scheduled to be released this summer.

Calabasas, we have a problem!

We have an epidemic worse than Bieber fever and maybe even Ebola. We, as Americans, are under a Kardashian Fever. That’s right…we are being taken over by everyone’s favorite train wreck, The Kardashians. Before I get on my soapbox, let’s clear one thing up. I’m not complaining about the Jenner’s. The Jenner’s are actually famous on their own accord. Kylie, Kendell, and Krissy (is their a Krissy?) are all models who didn’t want to get famous for being Kim Kardashian’s little step sisters. Brody got famous for banging Kristen and being on MTV. Bruce got her his fame not only running from his true self but also running for the gold. Then there is like 6 other Jenner kids and they aren’t famous.

So the Kardashians, what are they really famous for? They are famous because of Kim. Kim made a sex tape of her banging a nameless rapper that happened to be famous for being Brandy/Moesha’s brother (it was like inception). Then we wanted to know about the girl “behind” the sex tape and that’s how we were cursed with “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” So did we awarded her for having sex with fame and fortune or just rewarding her for having a vagina that makes people famous? (Look at the list of her past flames and tell me you knew of them before they dated) Then everyone else is just feeding off of her and the Jenner fame. Have you ever just sat and thought about why we are so fascinated with them? Well, that started a trend of people getting famous for doing absolutely nothing.

Alex From Target (I’m sorry but the kid was just doing his job and he has a billion people hitting on him), that one guy that told us to hide our kids and hide our wife because their raping everyone out there, and Kate Gosselin (While popping our eight kids out is a feet, she doesn’t need to famous for it). I’ll go into the Teen Moms and such in a different article but why do we does our society feel like rewarding people for things like popping out babies and doing their job?

While I use this blog to talk about people who have talent and Justin Bieber, I think we need to stop and look at the celebrities we are creating and actually think about why we care as much as we do. Together we can end Kardashian Fever.

Ray-J…well, he hit it first

So by now, you’ve must have heard the fact that Ray J,Kim Kardashian’s ex and the little bro of Brandy, recently did a song about her called “I hit it first” (wonderful title right? I heard Chris Brown thought of it but gave to him) and the single cover is a pixelated photo of the Kardashian in a bikini (Ray J, you are one classy and clever fellow).  While the Kim/Kanye camp haven’t commented on this, aka Kris Jenner hasn’t sent out the Kardashian Mafia, it’s gotta some major publicity. It’s been like a week since the single has dropped and while we here at the Pop Project refuse to review it because we felt dirty like Xtina, we will comment on it. So here is the first ever Pop Project Dissection of Ray J’s newest single “I hit it first”.

So let’s start with the song title and cover because it’s going to be the most fun! So as I stated before, the title is “I hit it first”. The title of this song is basically Ray J stating to the world that “he had sex with Kim”. I pretty sure that the world knows about the fact that Ray J had sex with Kim because of the sex tape that they did because that tape is the main reason we see Kim and her family on our television screens each and everyday. So there is no need, or want for us, to be reminded that he had sex with Kim first because we thank him every time we see her (by thank, I mean want to harm). And let’s be real people, Kim probably wasn’t even a virgin when she and Ray J had sex because she lived through the 90s and everyone know the only thing virginal about the 90s was “Full House” and that was only on for half of it. So Ray J, you in fact didn’t “hit it” first but rather probably second. Anyways, this is what the cover of the single is and the un-pixelated photo:

I don’t know who in the hell Ray J was trying to fool with this cover but it didn’t work (especially in this day and age). You might as well have just posted the DVD cover of the sex tape because that would have worked better than this pixelated cover because it’s so hard to unpixelate something. You are just asking for trouble when you do this, especially with the Kardashians! They will cut a bitch and not think twice about it. So yeah, so far Ray J, you just look like an asshole and Kim looks like the victim and We,the people, feel bad for her (there’s a first time for everything).

Now, it’s time to go over the lyrics because there isn’t a song without lyrics. Sadly, at the time of this post-there wasn’t any lyrics posted 🙁 So instead, here is the song. Listen to it. I’m sorry for wasting your time with this song:

Now that you listened to it….yeah, it’s pretty obvious that Ray J is still not over Kim. This song is basically him telling his “bros” about his accomplishments (Dude, they probably already know. The sex tape has been out for years)

According this site, Ray J said that it wasn’t about Kimmie K. he stated:

”It’s a song, it’s not about that. They just gotta keep it on the surface. I’m not trying to create no war, it’s all love; we’re doing music.”

Hmmm well Ray J, if it wasn’t about Kim Kardashian then you shouldn’t have put her on your single cover pixelated, made a line in the song that says “She might move on to rappers and ballplayers/But we all know I hit it first” and then sang “If you were to come back to me, girl/We’ll make another movie”. That to me sounds like all stuff Kim Kardashian has done unless she has a cloned.

So yeah, That’s pretty much it. Ray J’s song makes him look like a scumbag and we all feel bad for a Kardashian. The world will be ending.
