Kim Kardashian on 'Today' show as 'Kim Kardashian West': Talks about her app

A few days ago Kim Kardashian instagramed a picture of her passport with her legally changed name, and on Tuesday she appeared on the "Today" show where she was referred to as "Kim Kardashian West" by Matt Lauer who interviewed her.

While on the show she promoted two of her recent projects. First she discussed her book of selfies called "Selfish." It features many never-before-seen personal images, according publisher Rizzoli New York. Kim said what she instagrams usually is just one of about twenty pictures she has taken. The others taken but never shown before are the ones she is including in a book for sale.

The second project Mrs. West discussed was her new game app "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood" which has seen a phenomenal success but is also gaining some criticisms. In her usually defensive style, she defended her wildly popular app saying, “It’s just a fun little game, kind of like when people get into Candy Crush so much. Like, is it good to be obsessed with candy? It’s just something fun to do. All games, I think, are just entertaining.”

The “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood” game allows players to download the app for free, but in order to live like celebrity superstars people must spend their way to the top of the A-list by making purchases with real money. Players buy virtual clothing and other materials. This has resulted in many parents finding huge charges on their credit card statements.

Kim said it’s up to the parents to monitor their children who use her app. She also suggested that parents should not have their credit card linked to where their kids can just spend if they want to, or the kids should ask permission.

Kim said not only kids, but adults are also using the app. She concluded there’s nothing wrong with the premise of a game that encourages youngsters to aspire to superstardom full of material wealth.

Experts predict the app will net $200 million by the end of the year. Kim concluded, "I didn’t think it would do this well, and I wasn’t underestimating it at all, but I’m really pleasantly surprised with how it’s turned out."

The reality star of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" was also interviewed by Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gilford during the fourth hour of the "Today" show.
