Well, well, well, will you take a look at who made it onto the cover of Forbes magazine? That's right, it's your girl Kim Kardashian, finally gracing the cover of a magazine that doesn't trade in celebrity gossip. On Monday, the star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians posted a picture of the magazine on Instagram, and you know what? Forbes looks good on her.
Forbes is, of course, a business publication, and the whole Kardashian/Jenner clan aren't just businessmen and businesswomen, they're businesses, men and women.
Her father, the late Robert Kardashian, left his family well-off, but as 35-year-old Kim would be quick to point out, she's money a shit-ton of money herself. She mentioned her father in the photo's caption, writing: "Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen and know my Dad would be so proud. #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent."
Kim knows what people think of her, but now they can eat their words, as far as she's concerned. Turns out people usually don't get this successful without some talent, even if that talent is simply being successful (or as respectable people call it, business).
This particular issue of Forbes is all about "Mobile Moguls," and Kardashian is certainly one of those, earning the number 42 spot on the Celebrity 100 list after her 2014 mobile game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, grossed $160 million.
Kardashian is not looking to get out of the tech game anytime soon. As she told the magazine, "I became really intrigued with the tech world. I started spending a lot of time in San Francisco. I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on." She continued:
When people looked at me in a way like, "Why is she stepping into the tech world? That’s not her territory! Stick to reality TV!" I was like, "No." This is fun for me. Now I’m coming up with Kimojis and the app and all these other ideas. I don’t see myself stopping.
Nope, doesn't look like she'll be stopping any time soon. Eventually, everyone will communicate solely via the international language of Kimoji, and total world domination will be hers. Just you wait.
