The magazine business is in trouble, with weekly editors fighting every week to produce dazzling covers to drive sales. However, last week Us Weekly hit the jackpot with its Kim Kardashian baby bump cover.
“The controversial cover appeared to be a random shot, but in fact was staged by Kim,” one magazine insider tells Naughty But nice Rob. “Us paid $80,000 for the exclusive images, but it ultimately paid off as Kim and her baby bump gave them the best selling issue of the year.”
The cover showed a beautiful looking pregnant Kim in a bikini with the headline – “You Call This Fat?” Ironically Kim said this weekend that she hasn’t even thought about selling the pictures of her baby after she gives birth!
“The success of this Us Weekly cover has made all the weekly editors think again about Kim. If a baby bump picture can sell like that, can you imagine how many copies the pictures of the actual baby will sell?”
Once again, it’s Kim’s world and we just live in it! Wink
