In an interview with Adweek, the queen of social media spoke out about her upcoming book, which will feature selfie photography captured over the years.
"[I took] my first selfie in 1984 and that opens up the book," Kim said. "For a decade, I've carried a big digital camera, and I think it's just fascinating to see the process of what types of photos evolve. Mine started off on digital cameras, then they went to a BlackBerry and then a smartphone. There's just such an evolution of the selfie. And I captured that, I think, really well."
As for her 'ridiculous' selfies, the the reality star, 34, defended her so-called obsession -- saying that it's all in good fun.
"You have to have a sense of humor every once in a while," she said. "So many people think that taking so many selfies is just ridiculous. For me, what's so funny is I love taking pictures and posting them on social media for memories. I genuinely love the glam of life and hair and makeup and all of that, so I love just sharing my life with people -- that's who I've been.
"I live my life on a reality show. But sometimes people take it very seriously, or they think it's ridiculous. I'm kind of letting them know, yes, it is ridiculous, but it's all fun. I can look at a photo on social media and see a picture and know exactly where I was by the outfit I had on or who I was with. I take it more as a fun, emotional scrapbook that I love to look back on," she added.
Her book, "Selfish," will be released May 5.
