True Kim Kardashian SelfieKim Kardashian may not be not be as serious of a "selfie" taker as you think. The mother-of-one admits to AdWeek's Mobile Issue that her obsession with taking photos of herself is "ridiculous" and "just for fun." "So many people think that taking selfies is just ridiculous. For me, what's so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media just for memories," she reveals to the outlet. "I'm kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it's all fun." "I take it more as a fun, emotional scrapbook that I love to look back on," the reality star with 27 million Instagram followers reveals. "I don't think of this as a planned-out thing. It just kind of happened," she dishes to the publication. "Social media plays a huge role in my life and my career. I came at the right time when people just started to get into reality shows. Social media works when you're open, when you're honest and people want to feel like they're getting a little glimpse into your life. It's not that I brand myself like I'm a celebrity. It's just I'm living my life and sharing a part of my life with the world." And it's no secret the Kardashian klan is constantly criticized and picked apart by the media. She tells the mag that she hopes her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians will show the world that her family is normal. "I hope they get out of it that we are a normal family," she reveals. "They may not think we're normal, [but] we are a family like everyone else's that goes through so many different things and we're always there to support each other. There's always a family member that someone can relate to…We still have a few more years left in us."
