for those of you broken record readers who want to comment that Kim Kardashian is only famous because of her sex tape, safe your breath. We're not denying that fact, in fact, we're doing one better. We're celebrating it.
Sure, Kim became famous because of her sex tape, but that's not WHY she's stayed famous. She built a brand. Hell, SHE IS the brand, and as much as you love to hate on that, you can't knock a gal for pursuing The American Dream.
We're going to purposely avoid discussing Ray J because frankly, we wished the tape had been shot with anyone else, but then again, we're sure Kim feels the same way.
Kim Kardashian Superstar turns 10-years-old today and with that we'd like to give you some of the rundown stats on behalf of TMZ:
- 210 million views, accounting for online, DVD and VividTV.
- Someone began watching the tape on an average of every 1.5 seconds.
- There were significant spikes over the last decade for the following events -- Kim's marriage to Kris Humphries, her divorce from Humphries, rumors she started dating Kanye, her Paper Magazine cover and the Paris robbery.
Can you take a second to imagine what it would be like to know that every 1.5 SECONDS someone is watching you f-ck on screen? Like most of us can't even handle one person seeing us naked, let alone 210 million. But moving on, how much is this thing worth money-wise?
"Sources involved in the deals tell us the tape has raked in north of $100 mil since its release."
I wasn't joking around when I said that's a SH-T ton of money.
