She even roasted her own family to get laughs from the audience.
“When they asked, I was like, ‘You want me to host? Why? I haven’t had a movie premiere in a really long time,” she kidded pertaining to the infamous 2002 sex tape she had with Ray J.
“I mean, actually, I only had that one movie come out, and nobody told me it was even premiering. It must have slipped my mom’s mind.”
She proceeds to tell the crowd that she is more than just, “pretty face, and good hair, and great makeup, an amazing boob, and a perfect butt. Basically, I’m just so much more than the reference photo my sisters show their plastic surgeons.”
“My father was and still is such an influence and inspiration to me and I credit him with really opening up my eyes to racial injustice. It’s because of him that I met my first black person,” she continues prior to dispatching a joke about O.J. Simpson. “Want to take a stab in the dark at who it was?”
The influencer continues adding, “I know it’s sort of weird to remember the first black person you met but OJ does leave a mark — or several. Or not at all. I still don’t know.”
Kardashian-West additionally made an immediate reference to her ex and Caitlyn Jenner’s new and bombed endeavors at campaigning for political position, tongue in cheek telling the crowd, “Now I know we’re divided as a country, but I love America to come together, which is why I’m here to announce that I’m running for…”
That’s when the SKIMS founder quickly cut herself off and drops her joke, “I’m just kidding. I’m not running for president. We can’t have three failed politicians in one family.”
Later in her monologue, she tended to her separation from Kanye, however, began by considering the rapper the best “of all time” prior to noting that he’s “the richest black man in America” and a “talented, legit genius who gave me four incredible kids.”
“When I divorced him, you have to know it came down to just one thing: his personality,” she said. “I know that sounds mean but people keep telling me that comedy comes from truth. And if there’s one thing that I always strive to be, it’s genuine.”
A source recently told ET Online that Kardashian’s friends and family knew she’d be a hit.
“She is so smart and such a professional,” said the source. “She really wants to do the best job possible and ‘wow’ everyone and make them laugh. Kim is extremely funny, and all her close friends and family know that.”
