Kim Kardashian West struggled to explain her fame to a little boy.

The 35-year-old reality star - who initially gained recognition as Paris Hilton's best friend and, more prominently, after featuring in a sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J in 2007 before becoming a household name with family show 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' the following year - was grilled on Snapchat by a youngster named Sid, and had few answers to his probing questions.

Sid began by asking why Kim is ''on magazines'', to which she replied: ''Why am I? I dunno, because I like magazines.''

The little boy then asked: ''Are you famous?''

But Kim - who has children North, three, and Saint, seven months, with husband Kanye West - claimed she doesn't like to refer to herself as famous.

She said: ''Am I famous? I don't like to use that term.''

Next in their exchange, Sid wanted to know ''how'' Kim is famous.

She simply said: ''How am I famous? That's up for question too.''

At that point, the person filming the exchange - who sounded a little like Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian - interjected, saying: ''She's got a big booty!''

The chat ended with Kim - who has her own emoji line, Kimojis - agreeing to make an avatar for her interviewer's mother.

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty has poked fun at critics who deride her for having ''no talent'' after being featured on the cover of financial tome Forbes magazine.

She tweeted: ''Such a tremendous honor to be on the cover of @forbes! I never dreamed this would happen& know my Dad would be proud. #NotBadForAGirlWithNoTalent (sic).''

Kim was interviewed by her game 'Kim Kardashian: Hollywood', which has made $160 million since it was released in 2014, and her Kimoji app, but she admitted she was unsure about launching her own game at first but until Kanye convinced her to take the plunge.

She said: ''I loved video games, growing up. I remember I asked Kanye, 'Should I do this?' He was like, 'Yes!' That's how he got into music, because he wanted to do music for videogames and wanted to create videogames. [But] I was like, 'I wonder if people are really going to ... mimic my life.'

''When people looked at me in a way like, 'Why is she stepping into the tech world? That's not her territory! Stick to reality TV!' I was like, 'No'. This fun for me. Now I'm coming up with Kimojis and the app and all these other ideas. I don't see myself stopping.''
