Kim Kardashian shocked the Facebook and Twitter world when she revealed that she would grace the cover of Vogue’s April edition late last month. But whether you love her or hate her, now that the issue is out, the word is that the issue featuring Kim and Kanye West could break the magazine’s previous records, so people are obviously buying the controversial cover. Or are they?
Ironically, folks seemed to be in an uproar to learn that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would be on Vogue’s cover this month, with many fans even canceling their subscriptions. This would lead us to believe that the magazine would not do well in sales, but according to a new report by Radar Online, that couldn’t be farther from the truth.
“The projections are that Kim and Kanye will likely sell almost 500,000 copies,” one Vogue insider told the site. That would mean that Kimye’s Vogue edition would out sell both previous top selling issues featuring Beyonce (sold over 355K copies) and Michelle Obama (sold over 293K copies). Vogue big wigs would not confirm any of the sales numbers on Kim Kardashian.
However, if this does prove true, we have to wonder if Kim Kardashian herself played a part in the sales of her own magazine cover? If you recall, Kim Kardashian and her sister Kendall Jenner were snagged recently snatching up every single copy of the magazine at a local magazine stand. So, just how many more of these magazine stands and stores has Kardashian hit up herself?
What do you think about Kim Kardashian’s Vogue cover possibly breaking records? Could Kim Kardashian have played a part in the sales by snatching up all the copies she could? We know you have an opinion and we want to hear from you. Comment below and tell us your thoughts!
