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.

X seems to have deleted years of old Twitter images
The new X sign replacing the Twitter logo on the company's headquarters in San Francisco.

The social media platform formerly known as Twitter and recently rebranded as X appears to be having trouble showing images posted on the site between 2011 and 2014.

The issue came to widespread attention on Saturday when X user Tom Coates noted how the famous selfie posted by Ellen DeGeneres at the Oscars in 2014, which quickly broke the “most retweets” record, was no longer displaying. Later reports suggested the image had been restored, though, at the time of writing, we’re not seeing it.
