Kim Kardashian’s pink MySpace page uncovered: Proof that nothing on the Internet ever dies

Kim Kardashian may be one of the queens of social media, having one of the most followed Instagram and Twitter accounts, but she’s also no newbie. Celeb tabloid Us Weekly (via Mic) uncovered her MySpace page (remember that one?) from 2006, and while her 856 friends and 73 comments pale in comparison to the millions of followers she has now, they make her seem more like the rest of us ­– just a little.

Based on the profile, we can learn a little about the then-25-year-old Kardashian. She was just a year away from starting Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the popular reality series that stars the entire Kardashian-Jenner family. Her daddy — presumably Robert Kardashian, not Caitlyn nee Bruce Jenner — is listed as her hero. Her entire page is in pink, and was designed using something called, which still exists. It also shows how ugly MySpace looked, back in the day.

Besides the Kardashian-Jenner clan members, her friends included her former boyfriend Ray J, the R&B artist with whom she shared a controversial moment (in fact, it may have catapulted her to fame before the reality show). She listed herself as a non-smoker and non-drinker, and said she would someday like to have children. Of course, she now has a child with Kanye West, and is expecting her second, but reports indicate she still doesn’t partake in drinking or smoking. Kardashian also went by Princess Kimberly, with the motto, “I’m a PRINCESS and you’re not so there [sic].”

However, Mic time-traveled forward a bit farther, using the Wayback Machine, and showed how her page evolved over time, coinciding with her rise in popularity. In August 2007 – after her Ray J incident, but before her show debut – her friends-base shot up to 66,000, and Serena Williams was listed as one of her top friends. She also had more than 4,000 comments and became single (you can probably guess why), but was still working as some kind of princess.

In 2008, she garnered almost 3 million friends, and the pink page designs were replaced with one featuring various photos of her. By then, Kardashian’s fame was taking off, and her MySpace pages were becoming a bit more professional (she had a career started at that point, mind you, although we aren’t sure in what). But Mic notes that, as time went by and MySpace’s popularity waned, so did Kardashian’s activity level. Her page still exists, but it’s empty, and she only has 375,700 connections.

So, what’s the point of this story? Nothing dies on the Internet, and if you’re an active social media user, like Princess Kimberly, your past is going to stick with you – the good and the bad. However, social media also serves as a time machine, and a visit to your old MySpace page may bring back some great memories.

These are the 10 most-viewed YouTube videos of all time

Being popular is about the only thing the current most-viewed YouTube videos have in common with their top-performing predecessors. Even though YouTube videos like Chocolate Rain went viral during the first few years of YouTube's content, they probably wouldn't be among the kinds of videos that go viral on the platform now.

In fact, children's programming and music videos are now among the most-viewed content on YouTube. Music videos, in particular, have enjoyed great success on the streaming site and, until recently, had been the majority of the most-viewed videos in YouTube's history. Music videos still account for 40% of the top 10 most-viewed videos, however. The other 60% is content for young children. If these view counts are anything to go by, the video-sharing site could be considered a leading platform for music videos and kid-friendly content, rather than just the memeworthy viral videos the site was known for in its early days.
