Kim Kardashian and North West. The Hollywood Bowl.

Richard Reid Wants You To Cut Nepo Babies Some Slack

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 10-year-old daughter North West made her controversial acting debut not on a school stage, but at the Hollywood Bowl.

West played the main character, Simba, in a major 30th-anniversary concert performance of The Lion King.

The performance has sparked debate about nepotism, and people who miss out on opportunities because they weren’t born into a famous family.

Gossip guru Richard Reid explains why people love to hate ‘nepo babies’ on The Briefing:

The viral clip showing North singing, “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King,” one of the many iconic songs from the original animated film, was heavily criticised on social media.

Critics said that North’s performance didn’t match up to her fellow singers and dancers.

“I think it’s because she’s a Kardashian. Definitely I think she’s talentless and a Kardashian and you know, they are the family that people love to hate,” Reid said about North West.

Reid noted that not all nepotism children are criticised.

“When they’re talented, I think, you know, you have the ones I love. I love Maya Hawke, who is, you know, the daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman, so good,” he said.

“The OG, of course, the biggest one is Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s like the original OG two famous parents. You know who her godfather is right? No. Steven Spielberg, you may have heard of him.”
