Never thought we’d say it, but the time is nigh: Silicon Valley has a new tech overlord, and her name is Kim Kardashian-West.
The reality TV queen already has a subscription-based app under her designer belt, as well as a mega-lucrative mobile game, “Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.” But she’s now added an all-too-befitting enterprise to her digital repertoire: her very own set of emojis. Or in this case, Kimojis. (Remember, this is a woman who announced the arrival of her new son, Saint, via emoji, so it was really only a matter of time.)
Kim announced the news on Instagram (where else?!) on Sunday night (Dec. 20), and made the finished product available for $1.99 in the Apple store on Monday. And suffice to say, your texts (and sexts) will never be the same.
The emoji options themselves range from the Kim-centric (her ugly-crying face, a waist trainer, her pregnant belly), to the totally random (gummy bears, a tidal wave, a red Solo cup), to the slightly NSFW (a bare butt, a stripper pole, a cream-covered peach). Other options include a black manicured hand, a black heart (or "jet black heart," for 5SOS fans), a chocolate-glazed donut with sprinkles, a censored chest and text bubbles with words like “basic” and “lit.”
To illustrate how Kimojis should be used on a day-to-day basis, Kim also gave fans a generous peek into her group text with sisters Khloe and Kourtney. You know, in case you, too, need to speak to your sisters about their glam St. Barths photoshoots.
