Kimye Vogue Cover on Par With Beyonce, Michelle Obama's Sales

According to anonymous "media sources" quoted by Page Six, Kim and Kanye's Vogue cover is on track to becoming one of the mag's top selling issues of all time. It will likely fall between 300,000 and 400,000 copies sold, numbers on par with Beyonce's March 2014 cover at 355,000 copies sold and Michelle Obama's April 2014 cover at about 300,000 copies sold. This despite the many, many angry calls to #BoycottVogue and general internet vitriol spewed. Still, speculation that Kanye ordered all the Vogues will likely persist, so Anna Wintour will have that to look forward to.
