I don’t even want to get into the oxymoron of the words “Kim Kardashian” and “book” in the same sentence, but yeah, this is happening.
So that selfie book that Kim Kardashian was making for Kanye West’s eyes only, well it’s coming to a book store near you. Because really it was only a matter of time before the reality star attempted to monetize what she does best — taking photos of herself. We know what you are thinking: Yes, the woman who regularly posts selfies on Instagram and other social media platforms, where you can view them for free, does indeed expect you to shell out $19.95 for a book of selfies. Rizzoli Universe, the company responsible for publishing “Selfish,”also believes that come April 7, 2015, you will open up your wallet and spend $19.95 on 352 pages of photos of Kim Kardashian taken by Kim Kardashian.
Take whatever narcissism you think is happening here then Three Mile Island that shit, because Kim Kardashian took a bunch of pictures of her face with her phone, put a hardcover around them and is selling it for $19.95. She is selling pictures of her face for $19.95. I can’t stress this fact enough. Picture of her face. In a book. $19.95. We could probably solve the world’s energy crisis if we lock Kim and Kanye in a room with a mirror.
