All Stuffed Up with Virtue

From a DailyMail.com article about Kylie Jenner posted on May 18, 2018:

Kylie Jenner was seen filming her new reality series Life of Kylie in West Hollywood on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old rocked a revealing sports bra and skintight shorts for the outing, putting her impressive figure on display.

It is unknown if the title of the upcoming spin-off is a conscious play on the 2001 novel Life Of Pi, by Yann Martel, which served up readers a surprisingly sagacious religious allegory.

The novel centers on the conflict between a shipwrecked boy from Pondicherry, India, and a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker who are trapped on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

The narrative, in the end, appears to be a revised history fabricated by the now grown boy, who dramatically retells his painful and traumatic experience to a writer. Essentially, he made up the story of the tiger to psychologically bypass dealing with the trauma of losing his family in a horrible accident at sea.

Obviously, for the studious Kylie Jenner fan, the title Life of Kylie could be a clear allusion to the reality star’s own struggle with former beau Tyga, whose name cannot help but bring to mind the Bengal tiger plaguing the poor kid from Pondicherry on his lifeboat.

However, when it comes to the reality series it may be a far greater challenge to decipher between the fabricated storylines and the truth, even for the most keen viewers of the upcoming show.

Suge Knight looked exactly as you might expect:  ill-fitting golf shirt, chains, and jeans with mysterious bulges that didn’t look anatomical.

Nailed it.
