I have no one to blame but myself. After three weeks of playing the Kim Kardashian game (aka Kim Kardashian Hollywood), spending actual dollars on K-stars and energy (if you don't know what this means, I can't help you, and don't judge me), and taking calls from Ms. Kardashian herself (like, in the game), I'm on Team Kim. And okay, fine, Kanye's interview with GQ has a little bit to do with it, too.
Either way, I'm excited about this: Kim Kardashian's upcoming book of selfies. Like Kramer's coffee table coffee table book, but chalk-full of photos I think we've probably all already seen on Instagram. Yes, I want to purchase this. I deserve it. I am what's wrong with the world, blah blah blah — but no. Girlfriend works hard. Could you put out a selfie book, haters? No. Of course not.
The book will be called Selfish (amazing) and according to the publisher, Rizzoli, it will showcase how Kim has "mastered the art of taking flattering and highly personal photos of oneself." And you can say that again: the cover is of a very "chilled out and/or relaxed" Kardashian. Very — as Refinery 29 pointed out — "I woke up like this." (#Flawless)
And why wouldn't she? Honestly, here's a little reminder that Kim Kardashian took being used and exploited by an ex-boyfriend to create a literal empire. There's nothing wrong with an opportunist, especially since Kim isn't really doing anything wrong — she's endorsing products and designing clothes and starring in a reality show. Also, Kim Kardashian Hollywood is a billion-dollar enterprise unto itself. The woman's a force — so if she wants to release a book called Selfish featuring only selfies of herself, I say go for it. We'll buy it. We all will probably buy it. And if we don't, we will talk about it. Meaning she's doing life right.
All we can hope is that at some point, Kanye makes an appearance.
Selfish will be out in April of 2015, and will cost only $19.95 for all 352 pages. See? She's a goddamn business god.
