Caitlyn Jenner’s smashing records that Kim Kardashian set in ‘breaking’ the Internet

Take notes, Kim: This is how you break the Internet. Kim Kardashian had crowed that the response to her infamous magazine cover, where she balanced a Champagne glass on her butt, would be too much for the Web to handle. Publishing insiders, however, now tell [email protected] that the reality star’s gender-bending step-mom, Caitlyn Jenner, is shattering Kardashian’s online records left and right. Vanity Fair claims more than 46 million digital users watched or read content related to its historic cover — on which Jenner appeared as a woman for the first time, under the cover line “Call me Caitlyn” — via its website or on social media in the first 24 hours after publication. MORE: KIM KARDASHIAN'S TWITTER RANT: 'PREGNANT KIKI DOES NOT PLAY'  Since it dropped on Monday, the video of the cover shoot has been viewed a staggering 17 million times, dwarfing the 825,000 views of the shoot for Kardashian’s famous cover with husband Kanye West at VF’s sister title Vogue. That video has been online for more than a year. Meanwhile, the number of tweets about the newly transitioned Olympian’s VF cover surpassed those about her step-daughter’s notorious “#breaktheinternet” Paper Magazine shoot in a mere two hours. As one publishing insider told us, “Caitlyn is killing Kim.” And while Kardashian’s shoot featured full-frontal nudity, her new step-mom managed to get all that attention with her clothes on. West doesn’t fare much better against the mighty Cait. While the “Gold Digger” rapper set a record for most new followers in a day when he joined Twitter in July 2010 — 200,000 in 24 hours — Jenner gained 300,000 in her first hour and reached the million mark in only four hours. At least part of the power of the big reveal may well have been due to the shocking surprise appearance. Details are Continue Reading

‘Selfish,’ Kim Kardashian’s book with 300 selfies, is bound for a coffee table near you

Kim Kardashian already broke the Internet. Now she’s poised to break the best-seller lists. The reality star’s latest project — a coffee-table book of self-portraits, called “Selfish” — is her most indulgent project yet, but it’s only going to boost her $65 million brand. “Every time you think the general public might be sick of Kim Kardashian, she comes back even stronger,” says Ryan Schinman, founder of Platinum Rye Entertainment, a marketing company. “Whether it’s the video game (“Kim Kardashian: Hollywood”) or this picture book, the girl is an empire. ... This is another seven-figure payday.” The new volume of voluptuous selfies, cleavies, nudies and belfies documents her eight years in the spotlight — from her earliest brush with fame as Paris Hilton’s then-unknown sidekick in 2006 to her current status as reality TV royalty. The final shot shows the newly minted Mr. and Mrs. Kanye West’s clasped hands at their 2014 wedding. It’s easy to mock — indeed, the title almost does it for you — but this seemingly throwaway collection may end up being just as much a part of pop-art history as when Andy Warhol painted soup cans. Indeed, two decades ago, fame meant having the best fashion photographer capture you, as in Madonna’s groundbreaking “Sex” book in 1992, shot by Fabien Baron, or the iconic Mario Testino’s collection of Kate Moss portraits in 2011. But now, true fame is having the public be so obsessed with you that it will even buy your selfies. Every page in the 300-photo “Selfish” album is another frame in Kardashian’s overexposure. It begins at age 3 or 4 with Kim’s very first selfie: a blurred 1984 disposable-camera shot of her with her then-baby sister Khloe, trying on mom Kris Jenner’s clip-on earrings. “We Continue Reading

Rihanna dons blond wig, poses topless for steamy V magazine photo shoot

Rihanna has channeled her blond ambition. Don’t worry, RiRi fans: She didn’t pull a Kim Kardashian. The pop star donned a platinum blond wig for her sultry editorial spread in the latest issue of V magazine.

Rihanna also shot back at those who criticized her for “taking time off” from her career. “I didn’t actually take time off.

As for her highly anticipated eighth studio album, Rihanna described it as “soulful and aggressive, whether it’s lyrically, musically, or just the tone of my voice.” The latest issue of V magazine comes out May 7.

Kim Kardashian bares body, insecurities during nude photoshoot on ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’

Kim Kardashian had something to get off her chest before a uncovering for a nude photo shoot in the desert. On Sunday's episode of E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," the 34-year-old stunner may have looked completely at ease posing for cameras with only a carefully applied swathe of paint protecting her modesty. But behind the scenes of the shoot for her personal website, Kardashian confessed to some major insecurities — especially a skin condition that threatens her flawless exterior. "I have psoriasis, there is nothing I can do about it so there is no reason why I should feel uncomfortable," Kanye West's famous wife says in a voiceover. "So to make myself feel better I lay out all my insecurities before we start a shoot in the hope that no one will be focused on that." Psoriasis is a chronic condition in which extra skin cells build up, leaving scaly or red, itchy patches. Fans have often seen the middle Kardashian sister bare all, but baring all is considerably rarer. "God if paparazzi were here, I would die," she could be heard telling a producer on Sunday's episode.

Kim Kardashian goes from blonde to brunette for photo shoot with erotic photographer

Has Kim Kardashian lost her blonde ambition? The reality star posted a photo on Instagram Friday that showed her back as a brunette. “On set a few days ago with the amazing @ellenvonunwerth,” she captioned the pic of her and photographer Ellen Von UnWerth, who specializes in "erotic femininity" and has worked with stars such as Penelope Cruz, Dita von Teese and Natalie Portman. “Can't wait for you to see the projects we've been working on!” she added. It’s unclear whether Mrs. Kanye West is sporting a wig specifically for the photo shoot or has changed back to her original look, since the star was also spotted with dark hair while out for a drive on Friday, according to TMZ. Kardashian made headlines earlier this month when she debuted her platinum blond locks at Paris Fashion Week. But the transition wasn’t easy, as she had to return to the salon a few times to touch up her new look, which she said was inspired by Madonna. North West’s mom could have been hinting that she was ready to go back to being a brunette when she posted an Instagram photo of herself at the salon yet again on Wednesday, “Being blonde is a full time job,” she wrote.

Kim Kardashian says selfies are ‘ridiculous’ but loves ‘sharing her life with people’

Don't expect Kim Kardashian to stop taking selfies anytime soon. The 34-year-old starlet suited up in latex for her latest photo shoot for Adweek, and opened up about her mobile game's success and her huge social media presence. "I love sharing my world with people, so I don't see me just having a freak-out and just stopping," she told the mag. "Will I do it forever? I'm not sure. But I love the whole idea of it, especially because you get to share things your way. You get to tell your own story through your eyes." Kardashian's Kim Kardashian: Hollywood "raked in more than $74 million last year," according to AdWeek, and the brunette beauty revealed she tries to "mirror" the game to her real-life schedule "as much as possible." North West's mama said she "wants to create more apps." "I hope to have a bigger presence in the tech world," she noted. "I love coming up with different app ideas, and I have a few more that are coming out. I'm happy that people are into it and perceiving it well.” The queen of selfies said she knows they are "ridiculous," but she has too much fun snapping away. "You have to have a sense of humor every once in a while. So many people think that taking so many selfies is just ridiculous. For me, what's so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media for memories," she explained. She loves it so much that she is coming out with a whole book this spring dedicated to them called "Selfish.” "I genuinely love the glam of life and hair and makeup and all of that, so I love just sharing my life with people — that's who I've been," she continued. "I live my life on a reality show. But sometimes people take it very seriously, or they think it's ridiculous. I'm kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it's all fun. " Kardashian commented on her famous family and their E! reality show, Continue Reading

Bruce Jenner to appear on ‘Vanity Fair’ cover in first photo shoot as a woman

Bruce Jenner will come out as "her" sooner than we thought! The transgendered father of 10, who was slowly morphing into the woman he always felt he was, will debut his new look to the public in early July. The carefully executed PR plan was concocted with the help of stepdaughter Kim Kardashian and ex-wife Kris Jenner. Bruce is finalizing the details, which include a being on the cover of Vanity Fair to debut his new look, but [the family] is worried and wants to make sure he's taken seriously. "We all saw what happened with the In Touch cover. He wants to be taken seriously," says our source. Last January, In Touch magazine embarrassingly ran a photoshopped cover of Jenner, with the headline, "Bruce's Story: My Life As a Woman," with an image of his face on "Dynasty" star Stephanie Beacham's body in a scarf and red top. Our source adds that another option Jenner is considering is to take a page out of Angelina Jolie's PR playbook and set up a shot where a photographer "accidentally" captures Bruce running errands, dressed as "her." "He will set it up ahead of time and either come out on a normal day — and from then on he'll be a woman in his daily life for the public — or he'll go to a dinner and be in a dress. But it's likely he'll ease us into the nighttime look," says our source. It's likely the Vanity Fair cover will come out on the same day Jenner makes his public debut, in one coordinated and seamless media plan. Even better, we're told Kim, whom Jenner called the most understanding of his life change in his ABC interview with Diane Sawyer, has completely "overhauled" her stepdad's closet and turned him "high fashion." "When you hang with Kim you have to keep up, and that includes Bruce," laughs a second source. "No more maxi-dresses for him." We hear Bruce is excited to show us his look, and is the happiest he's ever been. "He's not angry at all anymore," says our second Continue Reading
