Kim comes clean about her selfie addiction with Adweek magazine

03 March 2015, 10:10

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian West admits taking selfies is "ridiculous".

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star - who has 20-month-old daughter North with husband Kanye West - is renowned for taking pictures of herself wherever she goes and she says she does so because she loves "sharing her life" with her fans.

She said: "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 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. 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."

The 34-year-old beauty loves looking back on all her selfies to reminisce about the fun times she has had.

She said: "I can look at a photo on social media and see a picture and know exactly where I was by the outfit I had on or who I was with. I take it more as a fun, emotional scrapbook that I love to look back on."

Kim is preparing to release a book of selfies, 'Selfish', and claims her tome documents the ''evolution'' of the photo-taking style.

She told Adweek's Mobile Issue: "I took my first selfie in 1984, and that opens up the book. For a decade, I've carried a big digital camera, and I think it's just fascinating to see the process of what types of photos evolve.

"Mine started off on digital cameras, then they went to a BlackBerry and then a smartphone. There's just such an evolution of the selfie. And I captured that, I think, really well."
