Here are words I hoped I would never have to type: Kim Kardashian has teamed up with once reputable publishing house Rizzoli to put out a book of selfies. The book is called Selfish, and is comprised of both “throwback images” and “current ultra-sexy glam shots” (no word yet on whether or not Kardashian wrote her own press release or if a copy person at Rizzoli actually writes like that).
Kardashian told Adweek that she took her very first selfie in 1984. “Mine started off on digital cameras, then went to BlackBerry and then a smartphone,” she says. “There’s such an evolution of the selfie and I captured that, I think, really well.”
Our sincerest apologies to Cindy Sherman, as this display is even more offensive than James Franco’s catastrophic “tribute” show at Pace (see Jerry Saltz’s masterful takedown here). At least Franco gave credit where credit is due.
