If you think Kim Kardashian is just a reality TV star, think twice because Forbes did.
Mrs. West is the latest face to cover Forbes, honoring her success dubbing her a “mobile mogul” based on her smartphone video game. Since 2014, Kim Kardashian Hollywood has been downloaded 45 million times, earning $160 million USD in profit. Gaming aside, her Kimojis and other ventures have landed her notable success and public attention. However, to use the term “mogul” is opinionated rather than fact in this case. This is not to discredit her contribution to culture, but to question what it means to actually be a mogul. Yes, she is powerful but is Kim Kardashian West important to culture?
