Start building yourself a bomb shelter because we’ve just seen signs of an impending apocalyse. According to new reports, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s recent Vogue cover may be about to set a new record, becoming the highest-selling issue of the magazine to date. A source leaked that the issue may sell up to 500,000 issues, which would firmly place it in the #1 spot, although the numbers have yet to be confirmed by the publication. An insider leaked that it is “likely” to sell that many at this point:
”The projections are that Kim and Kanye will likely sell almost 500,000 copies.”
To put that in to perspective, Beyonce’s Vogue cover managed to sell 355,390 copies and Michelle Obama’s sold 293,798. Yep, that means Kim has finally done something bigger and better than Beyonce and even the First Lady. The issue was immediately met with backlash upon its release, which many saying they would never buy a copy of the magazine again, but it clearly hasn’t hurt sales. Editor Anna Wintour explained her unusual cover star choice in her editor’s letter inside the issue, writing:
”As for the cover, my opinion is that it is both charming and touching, and it was, I should add, entirely our idea to do it; you may have read that Kanye begged me to put his fiancée on Vogue’s cover. He did nothing of the sort. The gossip might make better reading, but the simple fact of the matter is that it isn’t true.”
