Kim Kardashian graced the cover of Forbes’ new mobile moguls issue this month, boasting a $45 million paycheck thanks to her apps. The social media celeb reportedly took home an estimated $45 million from the app’s $160 million in revenue since her stupidly addictive RPG game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood’s June 2014 inception. According to the pub, 40-percent of Kardashian $51 million in 2015 earnings came from the game. Plus, her other app, Kimoji —the one where you can download custom “sticker” emojis that have been Kardashian-fied for $1.99 a pop — will presumably increase these numbers come 2016’s list. Quartz says Kimoji will probably go on to make $2.8 million this year.

Should this seem unbelievable to you, and it really shouldn’t, let Kardashian remind you that she’s no fool. She posted her Fobes cover Monday afternoon with the hashtag #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent — a shoutout to her illustrious list of haters (Barbara Walters, Jeremy Renner, Rebel Wilson, et. al.) —and told Forbes she’s in the app game for the longhaul: “I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on.”

Now we’re just waiting on a Kardashian take on Pokemon Go…
