9 Questionable Things Kim Kardashian Has Made A Dollar Off Of

Kim Kardashian

When it comes to Kim Kardashian West's obsession of remaining relevant, some things don't come as a surprise. Actually, mostly everything involving the socialite are no longer surprising now that we think of it. She's got a true hustlers spirit, point blank.

The reality TV star who got her fifteen minutes of fame thanks to an allegedly leaked sexscapade with Ray J has catapulted her likeliness into absolute stardom. For Christ's sake, she's married to Kanye West, that should be enough proof. Yet, even still Kimberly Noel has a past and that past (and present) is one full of questionable things that have resulted in the advancement of her bank account and Kardashian empire as a whole. Don't believe us, just watch.

Continue clicking to see the 9 most questionable things Kim Kardashian has made a dollar off of.

Sex Tape

Ah yes, how could we forget—the sex tape. It'll forever be her claim to fame regardless if she acknowledges it or not. 2007 was Mrs. West's come up year.

Short-lived Music Career

Remember "Jam (Turn It Up)"? Okay, neither do we because it was clearly a flop. Even with the help of musical genius, The Dream, Kim's music career was short-lived. I mean seriously, do you remember those horrid lyrics and the cheesy video? Where was Ye when you needed him?


While reality TV is just the opposite of its claim of "real TV" Kim decided to give acting on the big screen a try. Why not? What has she got to loose at this point? Executing a few minor roles in mediocre films, her second venture into the film industry quickly fizzled out.

Quick Trim

The fact that people really buy into dieting products is unbelievable. Why not try working out and eating healthy? Want to hear a secret, that's what Kim's doing. She's selling you all dreams of her physique with Quick Trim's, "live the dream with the body you deserve" mantra. There's no way you'll have a banging body like that from simply taking Quick Trim, end of story.

Marriage to Kris Humphries

Was it really love? The public claims she was publicity hungry. Then again, they did have a $10 million wedding, a TV special, and exactly 72 days of marriage. You do the math.


So now she endorses IG popping hair product Hairfinity? Really Kim, did Blac Chyna put you up to this? It's been about five months now. Can we get a length check or update since you now swear by it?  How much are they paying you per post/tweet? Anything to remain relevant and make that coin, I guess.

North West

As much as Kim and Kanye seem to hate the paparazzi they've done just the opposite of their stance on the publicity scene. Only a few months old baby North joined her parents in their acclaimed Vogue spread, which we can't deny was super cute. But when there's a round two that includes the one-year-old in a solo photo someone has to ask, who allowed this to happen? Friends with CR Fashion Book creator, Carine Roitfeld, or not Kim seems to be cracking the whip in true Kris Jenner fashion: molding North into what we hope is not a fame-obsessed individual. Don't get us wrong, we love the photo and North is a natural born star but we don't see Blue Ivy on VIBE do you?
Kim Kardashian Game

Kim Kardashian Video Game

Just when we thought Mrs. West tapped into all of her sources to make money, she pulled yet another off the wall venture out of her large backside: a video game about her life. Want to live the Kardashian lifestyle? Download this game. Want to learn how to become a celebrity the Kardashian way? Download this game. And people are clearly downloading it as she's already brought in $200 million in revenue since it's launch in July. No one sells a dream better than Kimberly, hands down.


Selfie Book

Can a book of selfies really be published? Well Kim Kardashian thinks so. And by the instant success of her video game, the 352-page is bound to be a hit. If anyone can make fifteen minutes of fame last, it is her.

Beyoncé comes in at No. 3 on the list with an earning of $60 million as she made most of her money through her historical Coachella performance, the joint album with husband JAY-Z, Everything is Love, and the Carters' On The Run II Tour in support of its release.

Jennifer Lopez made No. 6 for earnings tallying of over $47 million thanks to her lucrative Las Vegas residency, endorsements, and shows including World of Dance where she serves as a judge.

Rihanna follows behind the "Love Don't Cost A Thing" diva at No. 7 with earnings of over $37.5 million. Although she hasn't toured since 2016—thanks to her cosmetics and lingerie lines, Fenty Beauty and Savage Lingerie—the Bajan pop star has been keeping herself busy.

Forbes' annual list (which factors in pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, through June 1, 2018) has placed Katy Perry at the top with over $83 million in profits due to her gig as an American Idol judge and her 80-date Witness: The Tour that brought in an estimated $1 million per night.

Kelly Rowland Hops In Her Bag With New Single "Kelly"

Kelly Rowland has it all and isn't afraid to brag about it on her new single, "Kelly."

Released Thursday (Nov. 22), the singer goes the clubby, confident route while rightfully dropping her attributes like her relationship with God, smoldering looks (a.k.a the drip) among other things. With "Kelly" being the first single since her 2013's Talk a Good Game, the singer comes out swinging, reminding everyone of her power in the game.

The mother of one has promised that her new tunes will be edgier and most honest than her past work that included vulnerable tracks like "Dirty Laundry" and massive hits like "Motivation" and "Commander." Speaking with Vogue over the summer, Ms. Kelly disclosed a few details behind the album.

“It’s about love, loss, and gain and whether it’s professional or with family or whatever, it’s just honest," she said. "I had no choice but to be honest and authentic with this record: it’s about friendship and marriage.”

She also explained a drop in confidence caused her hiatus. “I was thinking about pulling back from recording, but I couldn’t help myself: I still wanted to record. I still felt like I was missing something. The third year just came and left so fast. The fourth year I said: ‘I have to get to work’ and now I’m ready to release some music! I felt like I wasted so much time, and it was my husband who actually called me out on it. He said: ‘Babe, as great as those records were, I think you were nervous, you got gun-shy’, and when he said that it was like boom, a gong went off.”

Glad to have you back, Ms. Kelly. Listen to the eponymous record up top.
