Lil' Kim's got it covered

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

He may be relatively new on the world scene but North Korea's youthful Kim Jong Un didn't take long to achieve one milestone.

Kim, who took over the reins of the reclusive nuclear-armed state when his father Kim Jong Il died of a heart attack in December, has made it onto the cover of Time magazine, above.

But it's pretty much downhill from there for the new leader, who is believed to be in his 20s and has been named the "great successor."

The magazine dubs him "Lil' Kim" on the cover of the US and Europe editions and takes a "look inside the bizarre world" he inhabits.

On the Asia edition cover, however, we get that other recent phenomenon, basketball player Jeremy Lin and the outbreak of "Linsanity."
