The NY Post has a new article this morning that discusses Kardashian fatigue and they use numbers to back it up. The best example is the cover that got so much press attention. It was Us Weekly's Kim Kardashian in a white bikini cover. The magazine paid $110K for the photo. That is a ton of money for one photo. The magazine usually sells 500K copies and they were hoping for a bump of at least 100K. They dropped 100K and only sold 400K copies of the issue. The article also talks about how all tabloid sales are down when they put a Kardashian on the cover. That is great news for the world who is tired of Kardashian faces staring at them every week when they are trying to buy food and booze.
One thing I don't really agree with is they spoke to an analyst who blames it all on Kanye West. I think he has his own issues, but I think with the Kardashians it is just too much for too long and they need to go away for a decade or so to give everyone a chance to find someone else to idolize and make rich for no reason other than someone was willing to have sex for money.
