PAUL STANLEY Calls Out KIM KARDASHIAN For ‘Insulting’ Business Advice To Women

KISS frontman Paul Stanley has called out Kim Kardashian over her recent advice encouraging women in business to work harder.

Kardashian previously told Variety that women need to “get your f*cking a*s up and work” to be successful in business.

“I have the best advice for women in business,” she said. “Get your f*cking a*s up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.

“You have to surround yourself with people that want to work,” Kardashian continued. “Have a good work environment where everyone loves what they do because you have one life. No toxic work environments and show up and do the work.”

Now, Stanley shared an article about Kardashian‘s comments and criticized the media personality, socialite and businesswoman for implying that all women, including those with fewer economic advantages than her, just weren’t working hard enough.

“The irony here would be funny if it wasn’t such an insult to millions of women who struggle to achieve and put food on the table while battling a system of inequality and inequities,” Stanley wrote. “Kim, You were born rich. Embrace it with grace by not being blind.”

Stanley previously touched on the theme of hard work in a 2020 interview, saying at the time: “I was determined, and as other people were pursuing careers in medicine and things like that, I spent seven days a week, 24 hours a day, figuring how am I going to do this. Because it doesn’t happen on its own.

“If you have a goal and if you’ve really done an assessment of yourself and you truly believe you’re capable of doing it, the only thing that’s in your way is hard work. Obstacles? Sure, there’s always obstacles. There’s people who tell you what’s impossible, and those people are always the ones who failed. So, if I can be a light for anybody at this point in my life, I tell people, ‘You can do it if it’s really within your power to do it.’ I wasn’t an idiot. I never pursued becoming a mathematician because I’m an idiot at math. But if you truly know innately that you can do something, then you can.”
