Kim Kardashian is “Selfish!” Or, that’s the title of her new book, at least. The reality TV queen is slated to publish an entire book filled with selfies. On Friday, E! News revealed that the 352-page turner will be a hardcover book and it is set to be published by Rizzoli's Universe in April 2015. The cost: $19.95.
The book was inspired by a series of racy Valentine’s Day Polaroid pics Kim took for her man, Kanye West. The 33-year old selfie guru even dished about her new venture on a recent episode of “Keeping With the Kardashians,” saying, “It ended up turning out so cool that we come up with this idea to do a book, a selfie book.” On a previous episode of the show, the reality star was seen constantly taking selfies while on a family vacation in Thailand, even telling her assistant, “[Taking selfies] is the purpose of life.”
Longtime Kardashian followers have probably already seen some of the material that will undoubtedly be featured in the new book, but since many of those pics can be found for free on Instagram and other social media platforms, it’s safe to assume there will be some new shots found in “Selfish,” too.
Time recalled a few past selfies taken by the star, like the viral pic she posted last fall to show off her post-baby backside after giving birth to daughter North West. Kardashian is also famous for her “elephant attack” selfie taken in Thailand, and her most recent creation: A close up shot of her face with a sleeping Kanye photo bombing in the background. The inexplicable caption on that one: “Side chicks be like…”
In addition to her “work” on her family’s E! reality show, Kim Kardashian has several side ventures, including a makeup line and an upcoming hair care line due out next spring. But leave it to this savvy entrepreneur to finally find a way to make money doing what she does best: taking pictures of herself.
Kim Kardashian’s “Selfish” will be available in bookstores on April 7, 2015.
