Today Kim Kardashian joins husband (and cover star) Kanye West in Time's 100 Most Influential People List. Martha Stewart, fresh off the ethering of Justin Bieber, wrote the blurb on Kim and anointed her the "First Lady of #Fame." She rattled off the usual figures—29 million Instagram followers, 31 million Twitter followers—before explaining why Kim is so damn famous:

"Beautiful in an exotic, totally exaggerated way, Kim exudes energy, sexuality, drama, determination, impetuousness and happiness. But she and her famous, entrepreneurial siblings—shepherded by a savvy, tireless matriarch—have also expanded the very definition of family.

"...Despite the flamboyance, the self-aggrandizement and the self-promotion (Kim set out to break the Internet by baring her bum in an extraordinary photograph), Kim comes across as an enviable big sister in a clan where everyone seems to love one another. Are they indeed today’s Brady Bunch?"

First things first, Kim's got that selfie book to drop.
