Kim Kardashian’s long anticipated and heavily hyped over book of selfies, entitled Selfish, is an absolute fiasco!
When you’re one of the most infamous socialites in the world and things are going down the drain for you, it’s inevitable for your downfalls to make the headlines. And this is exactly what’s happening with Kim Kardashian and her book of selfies.
Kanye West’s 34 year old wife, who has been dubbed as the queen of selfies, decided to launch her own brand of clothes, to sell her own fragrance, to launch her own game, to star in her own reality show, and to publish her own book of… selfies. The book, which is basically an album containing 350 pages full of Kim’s selfies, hit the market earlier this May. It received tons and tons of publicity before its official launch and Kim herself widely advertised the book as well. However, it turns out that Selfish is nothing more than it seemed – a big joke. According to official reports, the book of selfies has sold only 32,000 copies worldwide up to date. Of course, some crazy fans had to buy the regular edition and the limited edition, which means that 32,000 have not bought the book.
These figures show that Selfish is simply a total fiasco when it comes to sales. The number is basically less than 1% of Kim’s overall Instagram followers. And her book doesn’t contain more than just some of the selfies Kim has already posted online. In fact, the book’s sales are going so bad that Selfish has received only 2.5 stars and lots of negative reviews. Many reviewers stated that the book is just a “waste of money” and that “poor trees died for this”. One of the reviewers even called Selfish “proof that our society is imploding”.
On the other hand, Kim’s associates keep claiming that the book is a success and that it’s something ground-breaking and shiny.
