Though North West is less popular than the royal baby across the pond, the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West could take the crown from Suri Cruise as America’s favorite celebrity princess.
According to Yahoo! Web Trend Expert Carolyn Clark, searches for pictures of North West are “spiking off the charts this week on Yahoo!” That could be largely due to a photo of the infant finally being released to the public Friday when her famous father appeared on Grandma Kris Jenner’s eponymous talk show “Kris.”
Though pictures of Prince George were searched on Yahoo! four times more than those of the newest member of the Kardashian family, West’s notoriety as a mere newborn could threaten the supremacy of her biggest American rival, Suri Cruise. The kitten heeled brunette has dominated the celebrity child space since her 2006 cover on Vanity Fair with her parents Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. The photo was shot by Annie Leibovitz, the same photographer Kanye West reportedly wants to shoot photos of baby North for Vogue.
“It’s no secret that Kanye is a huge fan of fashion, Vogue and especially Anna Wintour,” an alleged insider told Perez Hilton.
The source noted that even though the frosty blonde publisher is not a fan of reality TV stars and even cropped Kardashian out of a photo of her and West at the Met Gala, “Kanye is determined to make sure baby North isn’t photographed by paparazzi then splashed across the world. He knows what he wants – a professional photographer and the cover of Vogue – nothing else.”
North’s secret weapon in her quest for the throne is her grandmomager Kris Jenner, who has mysteriously managed to land multiple TV shows about her “famous for being famous” family. Taking “Seinfeld” to the extreme, such Kardashian riddled shows as “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and “Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami” epitomize the concept of TV shows about nothing. We would not be surprised if negotiations are not already under way for a North West TV show showing the adorable baby falling asleep and performing other amazing feats.
Plus, if this newest Kardashian inherits even a fraction of her family’s exhibitionist genes, little North will welcome the paparazzi attention, unlike Cruise who was called “a little brat” by a paparazzo in July after she commanded the pesky camera jocks to get out of her way.
The pretend Suri Cruise, who blogs on Tumblr, seems to have nothing but pity for her rival. On her post in Suri’s Burn Book Friday, she published the highly searched for baby picture of West with her “What am I doing here? expression” and a one-word caption — “Help.”
