U.S. reality TV personality Kim Kardashian is set to give a talk about the objectification of women in the media.
Kardashian, who recently published a book, a series of pictures snapped of herself that aims to detail her life, will speak at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California this month.
Tickets for the event are as high as $300, which includes admission, a copy of “Selfish,” and the chance to get the book signed by thr reality star, British magazine Dazed reported.
Kardashian, whose of Armenian descent, has been described as the “first lady of fame.” She skyrocketed to the center of entertainment news after a reality show starring her family began airing on E! Entertainment channel more than a decade ago.
She is expected to discuss the media’s attitude towards and portrayal of the female body, in addition to expressing her opinion on her book and her own and her stepfather’s family.
Despite the $300 – tickets have already been sold out - according to Dazed - some on social media were critical of Kardashian’s ability to discuss the topic.
