Kim Kardashian Is Apparently a “Trailblazer” in the “Selfie Movement”
Kim Kardashian’s publishers have recently released an author description of the reality TV star’s upcoming selfies book and, in very Kanye West fashion, the whole thing is basically an essay dedicated to stroking one’s ego. According to the very self-congratulatory blurb about Kardashian and her coffee table book>, the reality TV starlet “a trailblazer of the ‘selfie movement'” who “is on top of the world.”
And that’s not all.
The full excerpt reads:
The selfie photography of Kim Kardashian, featuring many never-before-seen personal images from one of the most recognizable and iconic celebrities in the world. From her early beginnings as a wardrobe stylist, Kim Kardashian has catapulted herself into becoming one of the most recognizable celebrities in Hollywood. Hailed by many (including Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci) as the modern-day personification of Marilyn Monroe, Kim has become a true American icon. With her curvaceous style, successful reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians, DASH clothing store, makeup and perfume lines, she has acquired a massive fan following in the multi-millions. Through social media (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook), Kim connects with her fans on a daily basis, sharing details of her life with her selfie photography. Widely regarded as a trailblazer of the “selfie movement”—a modern-day self-portrait of the digital age—Kim has mastered the art of taking flattering and highly personal photos of oneself. For the first time in print, this book presents some of Kim’s favorite selfies in one volume—from her favorite throwback images to current ultra-sexy glam shots—and provides readers with a behind-the-scenes look into this larger-than-life star.
The publishers also adds a bit about Kardashian, writing:
A new mom to her daughter, North, and happily married to the rapper Kanye West, Kim Kardashian is on top of the world, and this collection of hand-picked images from her personal archive is a tribute to her fans who have supported her through her very highly publicized journey.
Titled Kim Kardashian Selfish, the book will be released on Apr. 28, 2015. It’ll cost $19.95 and your dignity.
