Khloe Kardashian On X Factor Hosting: ‘I’m Still Learning’

Khloe Kardashian's still adjusting to X Factor role

Khloe Kardashian has said that she is still adjusting to her new job role as the host of X Factor. While she has already tackled problems such as missing the Teleprompter text, suffered a mis-slip on the first night and tends to repeat a lot of things that Mario Lopez says, we have to agree that she is new at this, while Mario has had years of experience.

Kardashian, who made a living of being herself on reality TV has said that she appreciates tough criticism as it helps her to improve her skills and become a better host, because clearly she doesn’t want to be dropped after the first season like Steve Jones did last year (we don’t even want to go down that road). Khloe says that she hasn’t been able to “be herself” on the show just yet, and considering that everything is tight scheduled during the two-hour shows, she has to focus on reading her lines more instead of trying to be funny and humorous.

“I’m still learning,” she told People. “I’m still just trying to get better and better every week.” Kardashian continued that she will have an opportunity to win people over as the show continues, she feels that she will master the role as a host very soon, and people will see the Khloe we all fell in love with.

She added: “I like constructive criticism, but still it’s only a one or two-hour show, and there’s still so many people. I just don’t have time to just talk and be myself yet. And right now, it’s so technical. I feel like when more people go, there’s going to be more time to fill. And I feel like that’s where I can kind of do my thing.”

Ben Affleck: ‘Channing Tatum Deserves Being Named People’s Sexiest Man Alive’

Ben Affleck Congratulates Channing Tatum Sexiest Male Award

Ben Affleck has congratulated Channing Tatum for being titled ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ by People magazine. The actor, who held the title back in 2002, says that Tatum deserves it, seeing that he is a good guy and an extremely “sexy man”. Ben tells Access Hollywood: “I think [Channing] is [deserving], and always has been,” the Argo star explained. “He’s a very good guy and an extremely, extremely sexy man.”

Backing up his point as to why he thinks Channing was crowned this year’s sexiest male, Ben explained: “I mean, what else can you say? Have you seen Magic Mike? I think that said it all!” When asked if the actor finds himself sexy in any way, he responded saying: “I never really like pictures of myself,” he declared. “You know, at least it’s not horribly embarrassing, which is what I’m always worried about.”

Channing’s wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum sat down for an interview with People, where she explained how she found out about Tatum’s triumph — it wasn’t very pleasant. “Our dogs were being skunked every other night for about two months straight, so this was a very normal occurrence, to be kneeling in front of the bathtub washing our dogs,” the actress told People.

“But he was like, ‘Oh, by the way, I was named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’.” She added: “Is that not the strangest way to tell me this news?” I’m not quite sure why the skunk smell made him think about it,” she said. “Maybe it was the fact that it was the last thing something the Sexiest Man Alive would be doing. But I don’t know. Maybe it was the sexy skunk musk that made him think of it.”

Previous winners include Johnny Depp, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise
