I'll be the first to admit that I'm way too emotionally invested in the well-being of the Kardashian family. Like most fans, I was disappointed when Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick split in July. They were hands-down my favorite couple on the show and it was heartbreaking to see that fall apart. While some are quick to vilify him for his party-boy ways, I believe Scott Disick isn't necessarily a bad guy. If anything, he's misunderstood. As we've seen on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, he's gone through his fair share of hard times. But sure, I'll admit that sometimes he says or does things that make it tough to sympathize. Long story short, I'm conflicted. Perfectly capturing this love-hate relationship, Scott Disick's latest interview with Us Weekly makes me cringe. He told the site,
I’ve been making money since I was a kid, and I’ll keep making money so I am not worried about it. I am feeling good.
Oh, Scott! On one hand, I'm want to pat him on the back for continuing his career and not moping around, trying to mooch off the Kardashians' success. With sponsored Instagram posts and frequent club appearances, he's clearly keeping himself busy.
At the same time, the quote reads as more arrogant than anything else. His "I don't need anyone" attitude is a bit off-putting. After all, most of us would not know his name if it wasn't for his cameos on KUTWK. Without the show, I doubt he would even have nightclub gigs to begin with.
Yes, Scott's arrogance is nothing new — if anything, it's a huge part of his persona. After all, let's remember that he refers to himself as "Lord Disick" on a regular basis. But because it's usually done in a joking way, it's also somewhat endearing. Sadly, for the money quote above, I wouldn't deem that "endearing" at all.
At the end of the day, Disick doesn't take himself too seriously, so I suppose we shouldn't either. But jeez, I just wish he put more finesse into his answers when being interviewed. And so, the love-hate relationship continues.
