Beyoncé might sell millions of albums and sell out stadiums, but when it comes to magazine sales, she’s in stiff competition with Kim Kardashian.
Despite the backlash Vogue received after putting the reality star and her fiancé Kanye West on the cover, a new report claims the April 2014 issue is “flying off the shelves.”
The controversial issue is on track to sell 300,000 to 400,4000 copies, putting it on par with Queen Bey’s top-selling March 2013 issue, which sold 355,000 copies.
Let’s compare, shall we?
Bey: Jay Z’s leading rocks a ruffly piece from Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, who’s also known as Kimye’s BFF.
Kim: North West’s mama is in a Lanvin wedding dress.
WINNER: It’s Kim freakin’ Kardashian in a wedding dress. Sorry, Bey. We love you, but Kim wins this one.
Bey: She’s all, like, “the higher the hair, the closer to God!”
Kim: Slicked back and straight in a low chignon. Yawn.
WINNER: DUH — Bey’s got this one in the bag.
Bey: Winged eyeliner and subtle lips.
Kim: A dark, smoky eye and nude lips.
WINNER: Bey’s liner is chic and stunning. While Kim does look beautiful, they could have went less Vampire Diaries on the eyes.
Bey: “Queen B! Beyoncé Rules the World”
Kim: “Kim & Kanye / Their Fashionable Life and Surreal Times #WorldsMostTalkedAboutCouple”
WINNER: Kim — mainly because that hashtag trended and we can’t believe Vogue went the social media route.
