Kim Kardashian's Selfie Book Includes 115 Cleavage Close Ups and 10 Nudes

April 21, 2015 3 min read

Kim Kardashian, the self proclaimed "Queen of the Selfie," is preparing for the release of her photo book Selfie coming out in May. Its contents include 300 close ups including 115 cleavage shots, 23 butt shots and 10 nudes. The books spans Kardashian's life from her days as Paris Hilton's personal assistant to the dress fittings from her third marriage. The most recent of the photos show the lead up to her 2014 marriage to Kanye West. Kim says: '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.' I'm one of those people who thinks so many selfies is ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I've snapped one or two myself. Sometimes I think I look nice and asking someone else to take a picture would be weird. Or when I take selfies with a group, they show closeness and fun. I do understand the impulse. I don't understand the impulse to more or less do nothing but take selfies and then try to pass it off as photography. Sure, Kim has mastered the angles that make her curves look their best, a skill for certain, but it isn't art. I'd like to know how many selfies get tossed before she lands on these perfect, sexy ones. If she really had a sense of humour about it, she'd be making a book of those ones. I'd also like to know what memories she's capturing when she takes pictures of her butt while lying in bed. Or maybe I don't. At any moment we can go on Instagram and find more than enough selfies from Kim. For free. If it is the nudes you're after, there are no shortage of those found by a simple google image search (probably why her nude cover shoot with Paper failed to 'break the internet') and all of this is to say nothing of that infamous sex tape. Kim has left very little to our collective imaginations. There is nothing more to this book than a money grab from an egoist. Why buy the books when you can see most of it for free? I'm not questioning Kim's value as a person, I'm questioning her value as a cultural icon. I do not believe she has contributed in any special way to the advancement of our culture. This book will not be that contribution. If anything, her antics set us back. It traps us in a world that celebrates 'perfection' and allows for little escape from a judging gaze. Where does it end? I know, back in the day, I thought "geez, it would really suck to have a sex taped leaked like that." Have your most intimate moments, shared, globally. But now, Kim is just cutting out the middle man. Kim thinks Kim is pretty. Kim wants you to tell Kim that she is pretty. Put down the phone! Not everything requires a social media update. Buy the book if you must. I'm sure Kim and Kanye can use the proceeds to build an extra wing on their $20 million mansion. I don't think there is enough space, as it stands, to house their collective egos.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
