Kendall Jenner posts video of herself jamming out while driving: reckless?

Paris Fashion Week - Vogue Foundation Gala
A couple of weeks ago, Kylie Jenner, 16, posted some photos of herself lip syncing in the car, presumably while driving. I didn’t run that story because it was unclear to me whether Kylie was driving, although our friends at Evil Beet thought that she was. Kylie has since removed those photos from her Instagram.

Well now Kylie’s older sister Kendall, 18, has one-upped her. Kendall posted a video to Instagram (below) in which she’s driving, lip syncing and taking her hands off the wheel. What’s worse is that she’s jamming out to Avril Lavigne’s Sk*ter Boi, a horrible repetitive pop song from 12 years ago. But seriously, this is dumb. It’s not the first time she’s done this either, TMZ points out, that she posted another video earlier this year in which she’s driving and singing.

In TMZ’s video analysis, some of their employees don’t think this is a big deal. I agree with the woman who points out that Kendall isn’t watching the road and that she’s flailing her arms around when she should have them on the wheel. If the car in front of her braked suddenly, I doubt she’d be able to stop in time.

When I was 18 I got in two minor accidents because I drove somewhat recklessly and didn’t have enough experience to gauge distance. It takes time to learn to drive. I’ve lost two friends to car accidents. I don’t drive like an old lady (ok, I probably do but I don’t sit in the left lane going too slow) but I always tell my kid and my loved ones that driving is the most dangerous thing you do all day. Pull over if you want to record an Instagram video!

Here’s Kendall’s video. Take my advice and watch it with the sound off.

Update: Of course Kendall said something dumb recently. Like Rumer Willis, she thinks she made it in the industry due to hard work and not because of her name. She told Love Magazine that being a Kardashian actually worked against her in the modeling industry.

I was like, ‘You know what? I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously … People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model. Because of the TV show. I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn’t recognize me. I was like, ‘Thank you. Please don’t recognize me.

    So stupid. People like her kill other people and escape being hurt themselves.

    As someone who was the first person stopped at a red light two years ago and got hit full speed from someone not paying attention and then taking off in a hit and run, I have no patience AT ALL with this, once again, self-absorbed behavior.

    • Meredith says:

      Years ago, I had stopped on a side street because the car ahead of me was making a left hand turn. Young guy driving a huge SUV behind me wasn’t paying attention and rammed into my back bumper at 30 mph. I was basically uninjured because I was driving a car with good safety features (I love you, Toyota!). But I agree with Judy K. Doing stupid stuff while driving is extra stupid because you can hurt and kill other innocent people.

      As for her having “made it” on her own, it reminds me of a quote about George W. Bush : “Born on third base, thinks he hit a triple”. Not quite, Kendall.

  2. JH says:

    Dangerous and stupid. That’s exactly how accidents happen.

  3. Monkey Towz says:

    Everything about this family is disturbing.
    Kendall is as bland as Wonder Bread.

  4. Naye in VA says:

    She should totally be watching the road, but other than that I jam out every single morning on the way to work. But I’ve been driving for a decade. At least she wasn’t holding the phone and taping herself yikes. When you are learning to drive you typically make mistakes that teach you the nuances of what to do and what not to do. Her mistake was posting it to Instagram where millions of people will scold her into changing her behavior. That works for me.

  5. Dawn says:

    Here are my thoughts about Kendall and her selfies. No, her rocking out doesn’t bother me, I did that all the time as a kid. 2. Kim Kardashian should never walk along side Kendall Jenner. Never. You can really see how short and squat and old looking Kim is when she does. 3. Kendall partying with the likes of Chris Brown is sort of creepy. DM had those pictures posted yesterday. Kylie was there looking like her 30 year old self…oops I mean 16. Awful family from the top to the bottom.

    • Zipster says:

      I have no sympathy for Kim but being short isn’t something you can do much about.

    • Lorelei says:

      I think Kim’s hips/ass are wider than Kendall’s shoulders :))

      • Chem says:

        In fact, her hips are normal, her legs are the ones that are really wide. Hips are bones. 🙂

    • TheOrginalShelley says:

      I agree with you, Dawn. I totally rocked out in the car when I was young, too. Big deal.

      Also agree about Kim walking next to Kendall! She does realize that Kendall actually IS a size 2/4, by the looks of her, and that by walking by her we can all clearly see that SHE is nowhere near Kendall’s size? It’s laughable!

  6. paola says:

    I am just waiting for the day where this family will be old news and these kids will regret not having a proper education in order to get a real job. They don’t strike me as people able to save a part of their fortune for the darker days.
    Kris is a really bad mother.

  7. TheOriginalKitten says:

    God, these kids are stupid. I weep for the future of our country.

  8. Allie says:

    Right because her looks are just sooo high fashion that she just magically got these gigs as soon as she decided to become a model. In no way did her family’s connection help her (cough, givenchy, cough). I use to find her the least annoying of the group but she’s starting to become a mini Kim. And what’s worse is that she has millions of followers that believe all you need in life is to be attractive, screw education. Thanks Kardashians!

  9. swack says:

    It’s one thing to sing or lip sync to a song, but to turn your head and take your hands off the wheel is totally irresponsible. Not only could she have run into the car in front of her but towards the last, there is oncoming traffic that passes her as she has her head turned and hands off the wheel. All it would have taken is a bump in the road and the car could have veered left into the oncoming traffic. But then again they would have paid their way out of it and no consequences would have been given. Also, aren’t the big runways that she has been walking due to the influence of Kanye? Just asking.

  10. dorothy says:

    They are stupid, uneducated girls. What do you expect?

  11. Diana says:

    Wow….. What in the name with Kim’s dress? How she put that on, stepped in front of a mirror and see something flattering is beyond me.

  12. Talie says:

    You can tell Kim hates walking next to her. Haha

    • Blythe says:

      I noticed, too. Kendall’s walking nice and tall. She’s lean and natural. Kim looks like the usual; dumpy and uncomfortable.

  13. Frankdiabetes says:

    I commute by bike to and from work every day and it absolutely infuriates me when I see inattentive idiots on their phones, dancing, digging through their bag, applying makeup, or whatever else. Even a small accident could leave me badly injured or worse. Pay attention to your surroundings! This makes Kendall look like even more of a pathetic, self-absorbed moron than she already does.

  14. Kimberly says:

    Did you see the tweet Kim K made in regards to her interview?So much shade.

    • anon33 says:

      She’s talking about Adrienne Baillon, Rob’s ex, not Kendall. She gave an interview that was reported on yesterday (I think I saw it on Dlisted) where she was slamming Rob and the show.

    • Dawn says:

      Her actual tweet was lifted from a poster on DM. How sad for Kim that she needs a poster on DM to explain how she should feel first and then to actually lift it word for word! Only a Kardashian would think this is a good thing to do and expect not to get called out for it. What an imbecile this woman is.

  15. Regarded says:

    Do you know what’s terrifying? In 15 years or so Kendall and Kylie will age out of the spotlight (I hope), I think we’ve seen that with a lot of starlets.
    But that won’t even matter, because you know that North will take their place. It seems like we will never get rid of these people.

  16. FingerBinger says:

    We all did stupid things when we were younger. When I was that age I was kind reckless so I can’t throw stones at the girl. I think the biggest offense for me is that she’s listening to Avril Lavigne.

  17. Lila says:

    This is stupid and reckless and exactly the kind of stupid crap I did all the time at 18. At least she’s not jamming out, talking to her friend and putting her makeup on. Heck as a teen I even changed clotjes while driving. So yes this is stupid but I don’t think it is a stupid that had anything to do with her last name. I was lucky enough to make it through without any wrecks. Hopefully she will be too.

  18. Faye says:

    Yeah, she’s heading down a great path – hanging out with Chris Brown, now this.

  19. snowflake says:

    honestly, not that big of a deal to me. there was plenty of space between her and the car ahead of her and she kept turning to look at the road.

  20. Ginger says:

    I love jamming in the car and singing it keeps me sane. It’s something I love to do. My son will sing and rock out with me too. However, I don’t take my hands off the wheel and I watch the road. Trust me, Vegas driving is scary. You have to pay attention. That being said my husband has always joked that he wants to put his go pro in my car to film me singing and generally cursing, etc during my daily commute. At least that’s a safe way to record. I see so many people taking car selfies and I always wonder are they stopped? Are they driving? I wonder too if you could be prosecuted after the fact for braking traffic laws with a social media video?

  21. L. says:

    Obviously she could be more mindful of the road but everyone has rocked out and been a little distracted on the road. I would rather see her doing this then texting! And who can honestly say they have NOT text and drive. ( so lets just be a little less critical here) They are 18yr and 16yrs old and accidents will follow. Its kind of a waste of a nice car if you ask me. They should be driving beaters like the rest of us had .(to dent up.)

    • Frankdiabetes says:

      I can honestly say that I have never texted while driving. As I said earlier, I bike a lot and understand that a moment’s inattention could cost someone their life. Nothing is that important.

    • Jarredsgirl says:

      I’ve never texted while driving either. I just WOULD NOT put myself (or someone else) is that position… All it takes is one split second for something to go wrong.

  22. word says:

    She needs to keep her eyes on the road.

    With regards to her modelling career and the comment she made, delusion really runs strong in this family doesn’t it? Kendall, please, if Kim didn’t do that tape, she would never have gotten famous, which means YOU would never had gotten famous. The fame of your family is what got you modelling gigs ! I saw an older episode of their show where Kendall tells her mom she wants to model. PMK picks up the phone and calls someone and then tells Kendall “I got you a gig with seventeen magazine” (or some other mag I don’t remember). And so her modelling career began ! That was easy. And now she’s doing runways for big names because of Kanye’s connections. Kendall is pretty and tall and slim, but would she be walking Givenchy if it wasn’t for her family name and Kanye? I don’t think so.

  23. Nells says:

    I was hoping more so that you would comment on the fact that Chris Brown is hanging with and taking selfies with the Jenner girls! Is PMK that worried about the brand that she’ll sell her kids out to an hot-headed woman beater?

  24. Nicolette says:

    What does she care? If she wrecks her car, she’ll just get another one. If she God forbid hurts someone or worse, she’ll just get a slap on the wrist just as every other celebrity. She can’t be bothered worrying about anyone else, she’s too busy morphing into an idiot like the rest of her family.

  25. Jana says:

    Yes Kendall, you’ve walked for CHANEL TWICE because people have realized you’re soooo high fashion. Girl needs a reality check.

    • Booklion says:

      PREACH! That entire family are always boasting about how Kendall is so super successful and amazing as a HF model. It is like calm the f*** down, she has walked for what 5 fashion shows in her life and acted only as a filler model. She makes no impression at all. She has terrible modelling skills and is only ever booked to companies that Kanye has connections with and according to them and E! she is the ‘next big thing of modelling’. Give me a freaking break please.

  26. Lux says:

    Wtf is that denim monstrosity she’s wearing!?

  27. Marcell says:

    I met Kendall and Kylie on my flight from LAX to DFW last week. They’re nice girls. Kendall was friendly and bubbly, and Kylie was surprisingly less talkative and a bit pretentious. She only lifted her head up and removed her hand from her face when I said hey to them in 1st class. A tad on the sloppy side, they left bags of various junk food spilled on the floor and seats. Still though they were nice girls.
