Kim Kardashian to release a coffee table book full of selfies called ‘Selfish’

kim selfish

If you’ve glanced through Kim Kardashian’s Instagram lately, then you’re probably a sad blogger who needs to question your life choices you’ve probably noticed that Kim has been really “extra” on the whole selfie thing lately. I personally think it has something to do with Kanye West repeatedly saying in interviews that he gets turned on by Kim’s photos (not so much with Kim herself) and Kim thinks she’s taking all of those selfies “for Kanye.” Well, now we know the real reason – she’s doing a coffee table book of “selfies.” The header image is allegedly the cover of said book, although I did crop the image because I don’t want to inflict her veiny boobs on you. If you really need to see the full cover, go here.

This is not a joke: After Kim Kardashian admitted to taking 1,200 selfies while on vacation in Thailand earlier this year, the reality star has inked a deal with Rizzoli publishing and is set to release a book of selfies in April 2015.

Appropriately titled Kim Kardashian Selfish, the collection will be available to grace your coffee table for only $19.95. The cover features Kanye West’s wife giving her best sexy stare into the camera with ample cleavage on display.

Kardashian, 33, explains how the “selfish” book idea came about in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, telling her family it all started when she was making a personal book for hubby West.

“I couldn’t think of what to get Kanye [for Valentine's Day] and so I was like, ‘All guys love it when a girl sends them sexy pics,’” North West’s mom tells Brody, Kylie and Bruce Jenner while eating in Thailand, “So I had Stephanie [her assistant] get a Polaroid and we were taking photos around the entire house … making this cool book and it ended up turning out so cool we came up with this idea to do a selfie book so I’m going to make some super racy.”

When asked by her stepbrother Brody if the book will stay only for West, Kardashian hinted, “Yeah, but I might share some of them. Some of them!”

You know what I was thinking about the other day? Whatever happened to celebrities releasing their own calendars? It used to be that if you were a B-list type, you could always do your own calendar line full of sexy photos. I guess people don’t do it so much unless it’s, like, One Direction. Anyway, that’s what this reminds me of – I’m sure there’s only a limited number of people who really want to see a coffee table book full of Kim Kardashian’s selfies, but… that limited number will probably be bigger than we expect.

    Gah! After reading that the Biebs made his “own” version of Dust in the Wind, I finally understand that there is nothing sacred to famewh*res. They will try to remake art in their own trashy way.

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    For once, KK is totally appropriate and real. Naming the book “Selfish” is perfect.

  3. Ruyana says:

    The sad thing is: there will be idiots who will actually buy this book.

    She has jacked her face up so badly she begins to resemble an insect. I always see “preying mantis” when I see her selfies.

  4. Audrey says:

    Unfortunately, it will probably sell really well

    I’ve never even seen the show :/

  5. CZ Guest says:

    On one of the other gossip forums (maybe Radar Online), someone posted that the main audience for this book will be men who want to pleasure themselves. To that I will add another demographic: women between 18-30 who find the Kardashian lifestyle aspirational. Every product this family puts out is based on physical appearance.

  6. GiGi says:

    OMG. I guess it would be one thing if her face didn’t look EXACTLY the same in every selfie… but it does. This is all kinds of awful.

    And I think the Kardashians do calendars, right?

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Her face always looks painful now. Like she’s gotten so much work done it just hurts all the time.

  8. Erica says:

    This is hilarious. I know most of you guys really hate her and are so annoyed by her, but I just find her incredibly entertaining. I mean this is so ridiculous, it makes me laugh

    • Sea Dragon says:

      If she was in a small niche market, I’d have no problem with her. I’d just roll my eyes and move on. But she’s mainstream and _shockingly_ influential. Imho, who she is and what she represents is loathsome and depressing.

      • Gail says:

        I find it kind of fascinating, actually. It’s mainly young girls who follow the Kardashians, right? My guess is her fanbase likes the fantasy ride of imagining themselves, through her, as being 1) powerfully sexually attractive to guys and 2) insanely wealthy. Maybe she serves as a role model for impressionable or insecure people who see her as an aspirational model for that kind of “happiness.” It’s probably their sense of what female power is – what it looks like – how it feels. I don’t know.
        It says A LOT about the culture that these people have grown to such curiously enduring prominence. I don’t know what it is, honestly. I don’t really relate to them. I do find it fascinating, though. Silly me.

        Also, I actually like her for calling it “Selfish.” Tasteful she isn’t, but at least she’s self-aware.

    • Josefa says:

      I didn’t have any problems with the Kardashian Klan in the beggining. They make a dumb show for dumb people to get dumb laughs at. Sure, it upsets me they have no talents and make more money than I ever will, but I blame the game and not the player.

      What bothers me is they actually use serious topics for publicity, talking about racism, posing with native american warbonnets… If they stayed away from all controversial topics and admitted their show has nothing to offer the world other than campy and tacky entertainment, I wouldn’t mind. But that’s not the case here.

  9. Nev says:

    absolutely genius business idea.

  10. Lynda says:

    Promoting the “art” of sell-fies! The arrogance of the talentless – please let this book bomb!

  11. Hissyfit says:

    Lol. I’m sure it’ll make tons of money!

    • StormsMama says:

      This reminds me of Madonna’s sex book but for our modern day less talented more fame whorish KK
      In other words I think this is pop culture genius and I give her an extra slow clap bc I love the name and that she has no shame just saying it out right- she’s who she really loves most.

  12. Chris says:

    What’s she at in the main photo? Piloting a 747?
    You know how 9 out of 10 ‘moody’ interiors shots feature a coffee table laden with Tom Ford, ‘Century’, Helmut Newton, Mies van der Rohe and so on? Someone could make a fortune selling ‘highbrow-ising’ covers for Kim’s book, because surely no hipster will admit to owning it!

  13. Nicolette says:

    Does the world really need this? Do we not see her damn selfies everyday as it is? She must be Guinness Book of Records worthy at this point considering this seem to be what she does with her life. IDK most new moms spend a lot of time photographing their babies and chronicling every milestone, smile, laugh, burp etc. not themselves and how many time they can make the same stupid duck face.

  14. The Original Mia says:

    What the actual hell?! Why would anyone buy a book of Kim’s selfies when you can troll her Instagram and get the same photoshopped pics?

  15. FingerBinger says:

    I don’t have a problem with the Kardashians making money,but I can’t stand that they try to squeeze every dime out of their “fans”. Why would you release a book of selfies when all you do is post them on twitter and instagram? These people cannot resist a quick buck.

  16. bettyrose says:

    “Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?”

  17. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Madonna did this already I believe the book is called Sex.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Yeah, and that book became a huge collector’s item, so I hope that wasn’t meant as an insult to Kim. I know b/c my uncle dealt rare and antique books and said in a newspaper interview that that was his favorite book. Unfortunately this was in the Bible Belt and the journalist failed to mention that the reason was because he could fetch four hundred bucks for it, so he was in trouble with the neighbors for awhile. :) We’ll see what happens.

      • Petee says:

        I had a copy of that book.I had to sell it years ago because of my ex- boyfriends addictions and I had no money.I don’t think her book will be anything like Madonna’s.People will buy it.That is a given.Madonna’s had a high profile photographer and famous people in it.It was also very explicit in some of the pictures.I don’t think you will see Kim hitchhiking or pumping gas topless.She thinks she is American royalty and is above that all.Even though she got famous for a sex tape.

    • Jane says:

      Madonna’s book had some decent art direction though, and elaborate lighting/costumes. My brother brought me a copy from London. I later sold it on eBay for a lot of money, lol. Kim’s will be in the bargain bin in a few weeks! Also as to what happened to calendars….they went the way of watches. Never see anyone under thirty wearing one. Everything we need is in our phone :)

      • Petee says:

        I am old school.I have a calendar and write notes what I need to do for the day.I use my cell just because you need them now.Actually I really don’t like the way the cell has taken over.I don’t take pictures of myself pouting in a mirror and always turn it off when I am eating out or with friends.Look what the selfie has brought us.A Kim Kardashian book devoted to just that.

  18. Izzy says:

    Yeah, that sounds about right.

  19. Skins says:

    I hope nobody out there is pathetic enough to actually buy this

  20. Nedsdag says:

    Two things:

    1. The publisher forgot to add two words to the book title: Narcissistic Egomaniac.
    2. If this book becomes a best seller, society–as we know it–cannot be saved.

  21. Nev says:

    She’s got game. Queen of the selfies. Of course!!!! Pop culture highjack. Hahaha

  22. Nick says:

    I don’t blame Kim for this, I blame the idiots who will pay $20 for it. If no one bought it she wouldn’t release it! Why are people bullying this sh*t???

  23. Talie says:

    I’m surprised it’s only $20… Rizzoli books usually cost a mint.

  24. Jess says:

    1200 selfies on one vacation??!? Jesus h, how would you have time to enjoy your vacation, and who would even admit to that let alone publish such a stupid book? She makes the same dead eyed pose in all of her pictures! She’s obsessed with herself and it really annoys me that she’s made so much freaking money.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      I want to know how long the vacation was. I recently went on a two-week vacation and only got up to 560 pictures (only three of which were of myself) and I felt like I spent the whole time with the camera in hand. Maybe the camera takes a boatload of pictures at the same time, like how certain firearms can discharge hundreds of bullets in a minute. I’m hoping.

  25. Leaflet says:

    What was so appalling and incestuous, and gross was that I saw an episode of KUWTK (out of boredom), and Brody said that he got turned on by the sight of Kim’s naked body. WTF? She was taking selfies for this coffee book, and her half brother walked in on her in a sheer, skin-tight gown with nothing underneath, and he said he got a half- chub off her. Gross. And everyone was like encouraging the turned on behavior of this man. Disgusting. Now I know why Brody Jenner didn’t go to his sister’s wedding. He was jus jealous that he couldn’t marry and fu(k Kim himself. Super gross.

  26. CG says:

    But…they aren’t selfies. At least many of them aren’t. I watched the Thailand episodes and Kim has a whole team of people helping her take these photos. Isn’t the entire point of a selfie that it is something you take yourself or yourself? Or am I completely off here?

  27. jenny12 says:

    She was such a pretty girl until she started messing with her face.

  28. Franny Days says:

    I was just thinking that this would be the perfect gag gift for Dirty Santa, so if it sells really well lets just assume everyone had the same idea.

  29. Kanye says:

    Can someone tell me what she’s done to her face that it’s always in trout lips mode? It looks ridiculous and all the Lardashian women have it. Do they think it looks sexy?

  30. Eve says:

    I do not understand how she thinks sucking her cheeks constantly to pretend she has a thin sculptured face in pictures looks good in her mind. First of all, we all know she has a full, round and somewhat chubby face so her attempts are very obvious and makes her look like a 15 year old teenager trying to be sexy and failing miserably and second, when she sucks her cheeks like that there is a weird line across both cheeks that shows that she has had some kind of cosmetic procedure.

    I swear it seems that Kim K thinks she looks like a tall thin Victory’s Secret model when she looks herself in the mirror, her delusion prevents her from seeing her real dumpy hobbit self. Get over yourself Kim K. your just an average looking woman with enought money to buy expensive cloths and pay for the best makeup artist and cosmetic procedures, without that people would think she was the hotel maid.

    • Chris says:

      Every pic I see of Kim doing that ‘sculpted face’ thing makes me think she’s imagining herself as Victoria Beckham (whom I dig very much, btw) . Mincing about in vertiginous heels, po-faced, is not enough to effect *that* transformation, sweetie!

  31. kri says:

    This is just great..it’s a” curated” book of Selfies from the last creature I ever want to see again. When I was 6, I was stungall over my body by a Portuguese Man-o-war. I would rather have that happen again than look at this plasticene hogwart’s pictorial love letter to herself. I am so done with these people.Goodbye, Frankendashians.

  32. Katie says:

    Ah finally some truth in advertising

  33. We all know there are idiots who will buy this but what kind of publishing company gives the okay for this? This is what our world has come to.

  34. Booklion says:

    Can we just take a moment to talk about how Kims sister Kylie celebrated her 17th birthday by dancing on a table, drinking shots given to her by 20 something year old rappers and having a penis shaped cake. Seriously, what is with this family. They seem to have zero self respect for themselves and don’t care about anything other than having fun and maintaining their perception of physical perfection. It is wrong on so many levels. This selfie book just shows how pathetic they are for money & attention. For some reason though, the book reminds me of when Kim made that private calender for Reggie and then Kris “accidentally” released it and Kim and rob ran round shops buying every copy.

  35. dragongirl says:

    The jokes write themselves.

  36. Nutter says:

    In 10,000 years aliens will land and decide that Kim K sums up the “culture” of our times. Klassy familes bring up klassy kids who contribute to the Klassiness of America.

  37. JudyK says:

    Oh, please. I can’t take it anymore.

    Most mothers take pics of their babies, not of themselves. How can anyone be so self absorbed. I’m just through.

  38. kitty-bye says:

    Isn’t there some Facial Ad Kim blocking app we can put on our pc’s so we never have to see her? :D

  39. Abby says:

    GAH THIS IS SO DUMB. This is the definition of narcissistic. I feel dumber having read about this. :-( Can’t stand her!

  40. KGV says:

    just when i think she cannot be any more reprehensible and i could not find her any more soulless, i see the chinchilla skin rug photo. as an owner/rescuer of chinnies, it just makes me wanna hurl. she really has not one redeeming quality. i hope the immoderate plastic surgery catches up to her fast/goes wrong and she loses the only thing she cares about.

  41. Kimberly says:

    The title of the book is perfect!!! LOL.

    I just wonder who’s the idiots who will buy this book?
    Bet it’s the same idiots who downloaded her silly app game.
