14 year-old Kendall Jenner (a Kardashian) defends her sexy bikini photo shoot

Last week, Kim Kardashian bragged on her blog about a new photo shoot her 14 year-old sister, Kendall Jenner, did on the beach. Kendall is an aspiring model and was wearing a small bikini and posing provocatively. I thought the shots were too suggestive for a young teen, but many of you pointed out that they weren’t out of the ordinary for a young model’s photo shoot. It took a whole nine days for Kendall to respond to the minor controversy, and I can’t help but think she delayed her response to squeeze as much publicity out of this as possible. Leave it to a Kardashian to know how to make multiple headlines for nothing.

Kendall Jenner was the cause of several raised eyebrows when she released sensual photos from a recent bikini photo shoot, but the Kardashians’ 14-year-old sis says she wasn’t intentionally trying to be a bad girl!

“Going into this shoot, it was never my intention to be provocative or too racy. It was a beach shoot, and I was wearing beachwear,” Kendall told People July 28. “I am happy with my age, and am not trying to rush into anything too soon. I look forward to all the milestones my teens have to offer–Sweet 16, turning 18, and so on.”

Kendall, who’s just beginning her modeling career, also said her parents, Kris and Bruce Jenner, were completely on-board with the shoot and approved everything she did.

“My entire family was very supportive, though my dad [Bruce Jenner] was a bit concerned at first, he knows that I am responsible enough that I wouldn’t do anything I wasn’t ready to do, or didn’t want to do,” the well-mannered teen said.

[From Hollywood Life]

I don’t really watch this show, but from what many of you have said Bruce sometimes raises meek objections to whatever his wife and hoard of daughters want to do and is usually shot down. Kendall is being encouraged to be sexy and to model at a young age and in a year or two, if this family is still around (fingers crossed that won’t happen) we’ll be hearing gossip about her, too. Mom Kris needs new blood to feed the public’s meager interest in her family.

I’ll say something nice. Kendall is really pretty and could easily be a professional model. I don’t think anyone “pushed” her into posing for these shots or pursuing this career. Given the family she’s in it’s not like she’s going to be encouraged to get an education instead of throwing herself into show business though.

    Mama Jenner is a p-i-m-p.

  2. Tip says:

    A 14 yr old defending her sensual pics means nothing. She doesn’t know what she doesn’t know. She is a child. She should not be doing pics like this.

    Denise you are sooo right. I don’t know how parents would allow this. Chris Jenner is unbelieveable.

  3. DetRiotgirl says:

    You didn’t even include the worst shot! There’s one of her laying down with massive side boob cleavage going on too. Her body says grown woman. But, in that shot, her face said 14. It’s wildly inappropriate. But, when have the Kardashians ever known anything about being appropriate? Ugh.

  4. Ann says:

    this kid will soon be another bitch like her sisters.

  5. purelife says:

    she could be a super model.

  6. Oi says:

    I don’t know. How old are the ‘regular’ nameless models who don’t have fame whore families? 13, 14, 15, and up? I don’t think its that big a deal really.

  7. Tess says:

    Sigh. Where are the parents?


  8. bellaluna says:

    Of course she does; the famewhore gene is deeply embedded in this clan, along with the total inability to feel shame.

  9. Kolby says:

    I can’t believe I’m about to defend her and her family, but here goes: If she’s an aspiring model then getting into the business at age 14 is not out of the ordinary. Most models peak in their teen years and fizzle out in their twenties, so her early start is not surprising. Secondly, the photos are tasteful and well-done, and she looks adorable in most of them. Again, these are not photos for Playboy, but from a beachwear photoshoot. She’s wearing nothing less than what most 14-year olds these days would wear to the beach. And she’s pretty covered up in most of the shots.

    And about the Kardashians (which techinically Kendall isn’t, I guess, since she’s not the daughter of Robert Kardashian). I don’t really have a problem with them. They don’t cause major scandals, they’re not doing drugs (that we know of), and they seem to be a very stable family unit.

  10. Angel says:

    She is not very pretty..and her feet are massive..I am sure she will be getting botox by the time she is 16

  11. mslewis says:

    She really doesn’t photograph well enough to become a professional model. She has all that makeup on and still she looks 14 years old. Most real models who are only 14 (or even younger) look way older than their years when dressed up. Kendall needs to work on her modeling game. Right now, she looks more like pedo bait than a professional model.

  12. jen says:

    She looks like Khloe. Poor girl.

  13. Maddie says:

    Bruce Jenner has sold his B*LLS for the money both parents are pimps.

  14. Obvious says:

    I feel bad for Bruce. When he found out the Triple Ks (older girls) were doing a photoshoot for Girls Gone Wild Swimwear he flew down to Mexico to confront Kris for lying to him.

    He does argue about it, and is almost always overruled. But he does try at least. I’m hoping that maybe Kaylie (is that how you spell it?) stay out of it. And considering that Bruce has a bunch of other kids no one ever sees, she may have a chance. (Brody does make appearances and was on the The Hills he doesn’t count)

  15. TaylorB says:

    At first I was a bit stunned, then I remembered this is a family where one sister thinks nothing about having another sister wax her vadge. That just seems strange to me… I mean I love my brother and if he asked I would give him a kidney, but I draw the line at shaving his nads.

  16. electric says:

    She’s pretty because she is young, in the way that most 14 year old girls are pretty and fresh.

    She looks like Khloe. Modeling is not in the cards for this young famewhore.

  17. guesty says:

    these pics seem very subtle & conservative…not overtly sexy @ all.

  18. sapphire says:

    @Taylor-That’s hilarious!

  19. birdgherl says:

    She should be a Delia’s model…age appropriate…NOT doing this. Too much sexualizing of young women. Where the F*** is Bruce???

  20. RHONYC says:

    cannot WAIT, until the lil’ miss kylie starts showin’ her a%s over all the attention she’s not getting.

    she’s probably giving kendall high-calorie nutrition bars (i.e. mean girls)so that her latent kardashian can blows up and those modeling dreams ‘dash’ on the payment.

    lol 🙂

  21. dre says:

    Beautiful girl! Sounds like jealousy here on this site today!

  22. mel says:

    Wait a minute why is everyone hatin on her when Brooke Shields did the same thing at her age. Kendall and her sister may be the only civil ones out of the bunch.

  23. California Surfer says:

    It is interesting that this chick looks so much like her big sis and they have different dudes for fathers.

  24. Dr. Remulak says:

    Butterface. Terrible hair too. Nothing special there, just more bad judgment from bad people.

  25. Kazoo81 says:

    she could do runway for sure. but if she’s going to do print, she needs to work on her facial expressions. her eyes look dead in every picture i’ve seen from this shoot.

  26. Kazoo81 says:

    and idk understand why everyone always tries to claim bruce is khloe’s real father. isn’t it obvious that kourtney & kim look more armenian than white, while khloe just looks more white? it happens a lot in mixed race families.

  27. Brooke says:

    @Mel – Your analogy makes no sense. Brooke Shields’ pictures were WAY more inappropriate than these and caused quite a bit more controversy – she was 10 and completely nude.

    Any road, I agree that this girl’s brow is far too heavy with too-small eyes and she does not photograph nearly well enough to be a pro. Maybe a skin mag girl like her older sisters where the face isn’t as important, but that’s it. And is that any sort of commendable aspiration? I guess when you’re Kri$ Jenner’s spawn, what’s good for you in the long run isn’t a top priority.

  28. xxodettexx says:

    @TaylorB: hahaha, same here with my brother and sister… there are some lines i just will not cross! and playing with their pubic hair is definitely at the top of that list!

  29. artista says:

    Cute today, Chloe tomorrow…

  30. EMV says:

    I am with Kolby on the 1st half, no the second. If she is an aspiring model then she needs to get on the ball with the photoshoots and getting out there. This isn’t a big deal to me.

  31. Off the bat I want to say that this is no big deal, I’ve seen worse, but the reality is that we’re all so desensitized to sexual imagery that we don’t bat an eyelash to nudity. But still, these photos are tame, no biggie.

  32. Mistral says:

    Lord, how I hate reality television and its spawn of Z-list “celebrities”. Go away reality TV…

  33. viper says:

    Unfortunately she doesnt look fourteen due to her height. Shelooks like a very matured woman in her late twenties. There are no brains in that head of hers for anything other than celebrity and unless her parents encourage her to discontinue down this feild and return to her studies it’s a safe bet that she wont. What a terrible example to give out to the kids.

  34. gretchen says:

    @Kazoo81, I do think that Khloe is Bruce’s daughter even though she was born before they were officially together by 5 years. The younger girls look just like Khloe and are all going to be about the same height. Kim and Kourt are both very short and look very much like each other. Robert Kardasian was short and Bruce Jenner is tall. Why is it so hard to believe that Kris and Bruce were having an affair before she was widowed?

    btw kourt’s my favorite, Love her!

  35. original kate says:

    meh. i’ve seen worse.

  36. cara says:

    well now I’m sold. I’m sold on my Looooong suspicion that Jenner is Khloe’s real father. She’s very “white” compared to the other three and tall. Khloe and Kendall look Identical. (and I have two girls, dif dad’s yes, there’s a similarity, but not like this) Kris and Bruce….my $$’s on, they had an affair.

    **oh…I just scrolled up, I see I’m not alone in this suspicion. Peeps, I think we’re on to something.

  37. snappyfish says:

    She really DOES look like Khloe. An awful lot like Khloe. Khloe is tall the other girls are not. Khloe has large features like Kendall.

    Hmmmm wondering if these girls are half/or full sisters at this juncture.

  38. TG says:

    @ gretchen – I always wondered if Khloe is a full sister to Kim and Khourtney also. She doesn’t even look like them. And you can tell she is painfully aware of this fact. I agree she looks more like the 2 little sisters than the 2 older girls. Except for the fact the Kendall and Kyle are thin and not big-boned like Khloe.

  39. Bopa says:

    I have a couple things to address. Bruce being meek about the kids. I kind of understand him being meek about the older 3 girls technically they’re not his kids and he should refer to their mom but I think he should put his foot down about the two younger girls. I will say though it would be easier to keep the younger girls focused if he had put his foot down atleast on how they conduct themselves in his house.

    I’ve seen posters here say these pics are “conservative” and “tasteful”. These pics are conservative and tasteful for a 25 year old woman. They are not in any way shape or form conservative for a 14 year old. The poses, make up, colors chosen, look on her face all say “I’m an adult who’s trying to look sexy”. The pictures don’t say “I’m 14 having fun at the beach and about to do girly things that 14 year olds do”. The number of people posting that this is tame for a 14 year old makes me fear for our society.

  40. di butler says:

    Can someone explain this to me?

    Almost 18 yr old Miley Cyrus in body suit-total whore/slut

    14 yr old Kendall Jenner in bikini poses-tasteful and freshly pretty

    WHAT? If they are both in show business, i.e., acting, modeling, singing, etc., wouldn’t they either both be considered ok, or both considered wrong? And the same for the Pantless Raccoongirl?

  41. Johnthing says:

    This is a child that, at nine, her father had to drag her kicking and screaming off her mother’s stripper pole.

  42. Johnthing says:

    There are other pics from this shoot on line that are not as tasteful as these. Pedophiles are seraching for them as we speak.

  43. SMH says:

    she could be a super model? huh? why because she is tall and thin? as far as being attractive she looks pretty average to me. in fact she resembles lamar odom’s kardashian wife and let’s be honest that is not a good thing.

  44. KateNonymous says:

    Wow. She does not look 14. And I don’t mean that in a good way. She doesn’t look 14 in the way that Lindsay Lohan’s “Marilyn homage” photo shoot didn’t look like Marilyn.

    Frankly, I don’t know why anyone expects Bruce Jenner to be the voice of reason in this family. He CHOSE to marry into it, after all.

  45. mollination says:

    This is “wildly” innappropriate? Really?

    If anything, she’s getting modeling gigs and pursuing a career that she could be quite successful at just at the age one HAS to start breaking into the modeling business. As a model, you don’t *typically* (please not I said “TYPICALLY”) have a career to speak of after your 30’s. Like athletes, etc. you are to start young. The younger the better.

    For pete’s sake, it’s not like their wet-t-shirt photos, or hell, even Myspace photos! (Again, paging Tish Cyrus). They’re beachy, laid-back looking, swim-suit shots!

  46. kimberly says:

    Don’t think of those pics as being sexy at all. She’s not sticking her ass, tits or vagina in anyone’s facing. All the pics here look tasteful.

    Besides no one is crying when other 14 year old models are posed the same way. Is it because we all assume that the models are 18 and over? probably.

  47. gretchen says:

    @cara…I knooooook…i’ve thought this for sooo long but no one ever seems to mention it….so funny!!

  48. gretchen says:

    @cara, snappyfish and TG…I knoooooow…i’ve thought this for sooo long but no one ever seems to mention it….so funny!!

  49. blonde says:

    Anybody remember Brooke Shields in “Pretty Baby”? How old was she then, say 13? Anyway, yeah you wonder what kind of parent would let their child do this.

  50. Shay says:

    Whatever. People cry ‘she is a child’ bla-bla-bla and yet, where would the American magazine economy be without female teenagers dressed as adult seductresses? I don’t like it. I don’t condone it, but it’s not like women are going to stop buying the stupid glossy publications that they read to ‘guide’ their lives from fashion to sex, is it? Kendell Jenner is just another female cog in a machine. That’s all. And within months, there’ll be another one, and another. It’s a shame that the supposed freedom of speech in the US, also permits the open exploitation of female teenagers as sex objects, but if this is pointed out, those who are all for the idiotic magazines, that just sell advertising and female flesh, whether it’s in Victoria’s Secret or some other rubbish label that only manufactures clothing for stick insects, get all defensive about it.

  51. purelife says:

    khloe is 100% kardashian. of course she would look like kendall because theyre half sisters! geee……… they have same mother.

    and if shes bruce kid, then Khloe may not be a BIG girl. the 3 Ks have all same body frame.. voluptuous. Brenner’s kids are slender.

  52. excuse me says:

    With the Kardashian influence is anyone surprised?! Not me. She doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell for a normal life. Men still have the notion that if a girl/woman dresses sexy or scantily they are asking for it.

  53. Bopa says:

    They’re both wrong.

  54. Kelly says:

    This is why 14 year olds just should not be modeling, end of story.

    They should be in school, where they belong, and not on some sleazy shoot surrounded by the haters and predators that populate the fashion industry. I would kick the crap out of anyone who told my minor daughter that she should be getting her sh*t off for a stranger with a camera.

  55. Sarah says:

    weird that people attack khloe’s looks. i actually think she is the prettiest of the three, hands down. well, kim is actully very pretty, but her overexposure kills it for me. definitely khloe is way prettier than kortney though.

  56. ViktoryGin says:

    Well, admittedly shoots like this is standard issue for models this young. Many models are discovered at this age, and subsequently exploited. Why should this girl be any different.

    Personally, I don’t how legitimate her aspirations are because she quite prosaic looking, resembling your average southern California beach bunny stereotype. The face is truly not the business.

  57. M says:

    shes absolutely stunning

  58. gretchen says:

    purelife: and if shes bruce kid, then Khloe may not be a BIG girl. the 3 Ks have all same body frame.. voluptuous. Brenner’s kids are slender.

    don’t quite know what you mean about being Big, but I think the height issue is very telling, have you seen a RECENT pic of the 5 of them together. the two younger girls are just coming into their mature bodies and looking very much like their sister Khloe…a picture is worth a thousand words…lol

  59. Kim says:

    She has a mother who encouraged her daughter to sell her sex tape for fame people what do we expect! Look at the morals this kid is being taught – Of course she would think innappropriate photos are ok. Anything for fame & money right Kris?

  60. laurad says:

    really, how can they do an appropriate bikini shoot with a 14 y/o model? if she was a no-name 14 y/o, no one would think this is wrong

    I love and i searched Kendall this whole week I love I mean I’m addicted to her clothes they say that she might be the AMERICAS TOP MODEL but like of course it’s for teens

  63. Venefica Delirium says:

    Well, it looks like she lucked out by not having her sister’s two inch legs.

    But yeah this is really suggestive. It’s not even really about what she’s wearing. Teenaged girls like to wear bikinis. It’s more about body language and lighting. It’s creepy.

  64. Nicole says:

    Can’t blame the kid for being a whore its embedded in her DNA and with a pimp for a mother she really doesn’t have a choice. Kendall will be a slut just like the rest of them, she’ll have sex tape out when she’s 18 and I’m pretty sure its Kris who will have filmed it. These whores disgust me they have no pride, decency or shame. I hope these “people” will fade away the way Paris the human condom Hilton did.
