Kim Kardashian West has a new answer to those who say she has no talent: Forbes.

The reality star unveiled her cover for the magazine's "New Media Moguls" issue on Monday, referencing her late father, Robert Kardashian, and taking a subtle dig at her haters.

"Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen and know my Dad would be so proud," the 35-year-old entrepreneur captioned the pic, adding the hashtag, "#NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent."

According to the cover story, Kim's mobile game, Kim Kardashian Hollywood, has netted $160 million since its June 2014 launch, making Kim an insane $45 million over the same period, accounting for 40 percent of her annual revenue. Forbes goes on to estimate that the lifestyle star earned $51 million last year, putting her at No. 42 on the publication's Celebrity 100 list, and the only Kardashian/Jenner to be included. Even Kim's acclaimed rapper/fashion designer husband, Kanye West, did not make this year's cut.

"I became really intrigued with the tech world. I started spending a lot of time in San Francisco," Kim told the publication. "I realized this is really going to be the next cycle of my career and this is what I want to focus on."

And tech is not the only way Kim has chosen to use her platform to branch out beyond Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Amid the unrest and tragedies last week -- the separate shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police, to the mass shooting that took the lives of five police officers in Dallas -- Kim penned a blog post about the Black Lives Matter movement, expressing how she does not want her own children to have to grow up in fear.
