This is a PSA for anyone still wasting their breath hating on Kim Kardashian: it is officially time to stop. Knocking on a lady who hustles this hard just makes you look like a TOTAL LAME.
The reality television star turned hot mom and household name who once marketed her own sex tape for press has just landed the July 26 cover of Forbes magazine, thanks to her multi-million dollar phenomenon of a video game, Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.
Check Mom out in all her cover story glory here:
In the cover story interview, Kardashian talks about the inspiration for getting into the video game app industry, saying "I loved video games growing up. I remember I asked Kanye, ‘Should I do this?’ He was like, ‘Yes!’"
And there you have it. The rest is history.
Kim Kardashian: Hollywood has been downloaded 45 million times and generated over $160 million in revenue. This year alone, she's earned $51 million — 40% of her yearly paycheck, according to Forbes — from the video game alone.
Kim Kardashian: Hollywood has been so popular that many other celebs have tried their hand at their own version of a mobile app game — Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and Vanessa Hudgens, to name a few, but none have been as successful as KKH. Ellen DeGeneres's "Heads Up" trivia game is the only game that has been able to come close, grossing $25.9 million since it came out in 2013.
So if you want to come for Kim, don't. She already has you beat. And she's Kim Kardashian, so she's never stopping.
