Kim Kardashian Celebrates ‘Forbes’ Cover With Self-Aware Tweet
Kim Kardashian is well aware that the general public perceives her as a talentless reality star -- she just doesn't care what anyone thinks.
Kim unveiled her upcoming cover for Forbes Magazine on Twitter along with the caption, "Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen& know my Dad would be proud."
She followed that up with the hashtag, "#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent," alerting fans and haters alike that Kim is conscious of the "talentless" label ascribed to her by so many -- including Barbara Walters.
Forbes named Kim a “mobile mogul” after her popular Kim Kardashian: Hollywood app generated nearly $160 million since its launch, earning Kim a hefty $45 million alone. And while dissenters believe Kim merely slapped her name on the mobile app and called it a day, the reality star insists she’s taken a hands-on approach from day one.
Kim reportedly has "overall editorial approval" which extends to "every single outfit, to the eyeliner to the hairstyles, to the color tones." She also suggested further clothing options as the game evolved to mimic her real-life style.
"I would give [Glu] bikinis and be like, 'Hurry up and mock up this bikini, because I'm going to wear it, and then you can have it live in the game," she said.
Further, Kim admits her foray into the mobile world (which has since expanded to her Kimoji app) came about after noticing a technological boom in San Francisco.
"I became really intrigued with the tech world. I started spending a lot of time in San Francisco,” she told Forbes. “I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on.”
Kim also admits husband Kanye West encouraged her new business venture: “I remember I asked Kanye, ‘Should I do this?’ He was like, ‘Yes!’ That’s how he got into music, because he wanted to do music for video games and wanted to create video games.”
