Kim Kardashian will give a talk of the objectification of women in the media.

The selfie queen herself, 34, who recently ‘wrote’ a book detailing her life in selfies, will speak at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California, later this month.

Kardashian, worth a reported $45 million as of last year, is perhaps uniquely placed to discuss the media’s attitude and portrayal of the female form.

Billed as “the first lady of #fame,” Kardashian will also give her opinion on new book Selfish, the Kardashian and Jenner clan and the “business of millennial culture”.

Still, hearing Mrs Kardashian West – currently expecting her second child with husband Kanye West – speak does not come cheap.

Ticket prices for the 30 June event range from $300 for the VIP Party (including a copy of her book and the chance to have it signed, along with a cocktail reception) to the lesser $150 – perks include a chance to get your book signed, but no cocktails.

The top tier of tickets, according to a Dazed report, have already sold out. Before you panic – don’t worry – you can still get tickets for the balcony seats ($40).
