Kim Kardashian may be the reigning Queen of Reality Television thanks to the ever popular Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but that does not mean she is winning in every arena.

As you may know, Kim’s emojis, “Kimojis,” have been all the rave for over a year now with the reality star allegedly boasting the most popular celebrity emoji brand on the planet. Well new research and statistic are proving otherwise. The Emoji Queen has been officially dethroned!

Apparently not only has Mrs. Kardashian-West been dethroned, there’s been a coup with a number of celebrities topping her in the emoji department. A survey was done and Kim is down on the list in that area of accolades. See below.

How “On Demand” Media Is Making Entertainment Better for Everyone

 If you were to stop any 100 people walking down the street to ask them what they perceive as the most exciting thing to hit the world of entertainment, including new television shows, movies, Sky TV channel additions or literally anything they love about the world of entertainment in the 21st Century, chances are you will get at least 50% of those you poll saying they are thrilled to have on demand media. This is something that has evolved quite quickly in the scheme of things but is something that has transformed the way we view media in a radical way.

A Quick Trip through Time

Actually, the very beginning of this trend for streaming media probably can be traced back to two different sources. One would be YouTube with its millions of videos that have been uploaded which people can view at any time of the day or night and from literally any device that is connected to the Internet. The other type of on demand media that excited Internet users was the concept of a podcast which predated YouTube by about a year. YouTube was the brainchild of PayPal employees who wanted a video sharing site for the public to upload and share videos and it went live on February 14, 2005.

Podcasting began in 2004 and two men, Dave Winer and Adam Curry are credited with creating the podcast. However, it is uncertain who did what and when but it is for certain that these two guys were the creators of the podcast. We are only going back approximately 12 years but the speed at which the Internet is evolving makes those 12 very long years indeed. Having the ability to stream on-demand videos and live media has become the media delivery of choice and with the advent of smart devices, on demand media has literally taken over the world of entertainment.

[VIDEO] Thanks to “Loving” Movie (@lovingthefilm)! Interracial Emojis Debut for The First Time Ever!

Interracial Emojis are the new addition to the commonly shared emoji images by social media users.

On October 4, Focus Features (Los Angeles, CA) made an announcement that the new LOVE-MOJI App has launched,  which will give users the chance to use interracial couple emojis for the first time ever.   The groundbreaking new app is inspired by Richard and Mildred Loving, a husband and wife who nearly fifty years ago showed us that love is stronger than hate and has the power to spark real change. In anticipation of Focus’s upcoming film about the couple, LOVING, users will be able to use this new keyboard extension on text and email, as well as platforms like Twitter and Facebook. While same-sex couples and individuals of different races have been represented as emoji’s in the past, interracial couples and families had not made their debut as emoji’s until now.

The superstar has invested $150,000, through her company Parkwood Entertainment, into SideStep – a new mobile application that makes it easier for concertgoers to purchase tour merchandise. Buying concert merchandise can be a big hassle; the lines are always super long and it is hard to get in and out without missing a part of the show. With SideStep, “you can now pre-order your stuff days before the show, from your seat at the concert, or after the night ends for VIP pickup or delivery to your doorstep.” And no, it’s not only for Beyonce’s concerts! The app has a list of shows going on at all different venues.
