Kendall & Kylie Jenner are terrified of growing older: ‘It’s scary. Life is scary’

Kylie Jenner

Here’s a photo of Kylie Jenner outside Kendall’s apartment building. Tyga was along for the ride as always. Next week’s episode of KUWTK will reportedly talk about 17-year-old Kylie’s, um, social life. You can see an (autoplay) clip of the teaser here. Khloe talks about how she “just switched Kylie’s birth control pills.” Kris Jenner asks, “Do you take it for your skin?” Kylie makes a face, and Khloe asks, “What do you think she does all day, knit sweaters?” Is this how the show will confirm Kylie’s relationship with Tyga, age 25?

Something less gross. Kylie and Kendall are promoting their clothing lines with PacSun and TopShop. They sat down with The Sunday Times (via E! Online) to discuss how they fear the aging process. Both girls are so young. This doesn’t surprise me at all, considering the family we’re discussing:

Kylie: “I’m scared of the day I turn 19. I really don’t want to grow past 18.” [Looks at Kendall] “You’ll be 20 this year — that’s crazy. And any second you’ll be, like, 21, 22, 23…”

Kendall: “It’s scary. Life is scary. It’s just scary to think how fast everything is rolling and you can’t stop it. It’s rolling right now. You see a picture and you’ve changed so much in a year.”

Kylie: “I’ve done so much, physically and whatever.”

Kendall: “I think social media has taken over for our generation. It’s a big part of our lives and it’s kind of sad. I hate it sometimes, like, I literally want to throw my phone so I can’t look at it. It’s all a made-up world if you think about it. Social media, everything, this interview, everything. It’s not real.”

Kendall’s pulling a Kate Upton here. Both models boosted their careers using social media. Kendall scored an Estee Lauder contract specifically because she has so many Instagram followers. Brands want to create buzz, so they select models who have large internet followings. Kate Upton’s been dissing social media like crazy, and her alleged attitude over many things could destroy her career. Kendall needs to be careful.

FYI: Kendall tweeted some awesome support for Caitlyn Jenner yesterday.

Here’s Kendall with Wu “Kris” Yifan on the cover of Vogue China.

    Afraid of turning 19? Dear Lord… the opposite of getting old is dying young. So getting old is such a privilige. There are many people who died before they even turned 20, I bet they would have been looking very much forward to turning 21, 22, 23… and even 80.

    • Nicolette says:

      Yes. Never regret growing old, it is a privilege denied to many.

    • Sos101 says:

      So very true. But no surprise coming from this family

      • Sabrine says:

        They have money in the bank and a rich family. They don’t know what scary is.

    • a cut above says:

      I work with a young adults, and it seems like a LOT of them will come into my office and say: “Mrs. a-cut-above, I am going to be 20 tomorrow. I’ll be SO OLD, I want to stay 19 forever.” They all act like anything over 25 is basically nursing home territory. I’m not sure if it’s just vapid young adults reacting to our “celebrate youth” culture or what.

      • perplexed says:

        Yeah, I think a lot of people think this way, not just the shallow ones. I can hear these same conversations on the bus or when I’m standing in line to get coffee.

      • Moneypenny says:

        Yeah, I definitely thought this way. It wasn’t about appearances, it was partially recognizing my own mortality and how carefree it is when you have so few responsibilities.

    • prettylights says:

      I just turned 30 and when I was 20 the thought of getting older scared the crap outta me too. Now that I’m here…honestly it’s great! I feel more at peace, more settled, and more confident than I ever have before. I have a great job, many friends, a terrific husband, the means to travel (I did not have that when I was younger), and a cute apartment. I’ve finally figured out who I am, embraced it, and stopped trying to ‘fit in’. When I was 20 I was in college and mostly just partied with friends, worked, and did school work. I moved around a lot (home with parents, back to school, back home, in with a friend, etc) and was always broke. I was often depressed, confused about the future, and wishing to have my easy childhood back. I didn’t feel like I fit in with my peers and kinda felt like an outcast. I made bad decisions and drowned my sorrows in booze quite often.

      Yeah, I’m getting a few slight wrinkles and that kinda sucks and I should probably donate all of my old Hello Kitty gear, but I’m in a great place and happy so it’s totally worth it. In fact I’m excited to see where I’ll be in 5 years. From 20-25 I had major changes, from 25-30 even more. From 30-35 – anything could happen. There’s so much more to learn!

    • Lahdidahbaby says:

      When you’re raised in a family where your worth as a woman (and your ability to make a living) is 100% based on how ‘hot’ you look (had to put that in quotes because their definition of hot is pathetic and often comical…see the Pinocchio butt, for example), how can an impressionable teenage girl NOT be terrified of ageing? There really IS no “there” there with this family. It really is all smoke and mirrors, mostly mirrors. Kim, the sister Kylie recently called her fashion exemplar, tries not to “smile too much,” for fear of getting lines, and she seems to spend most of every day taking selfies. Every woman in that family seems to have used plastic surgery as a rite of passage, and they all have make-up people recreating their faces each time they go out. How could Kylie NOT fear ageing? Especially when she has no education, not even a high school diploma? For her there truly seems to be nothing by which to define herself but her looks. And if there might ever have been any doubt about that, the world has reinforced that idea by publicly debating her possible plastic surgery procedures. Even her father Bruce has defined his transition to womanhood by focusing on his cosmetic procedures, make-up techniques, sexy dresses and vampy photos of himself half dressed. For Kylie Jenner, what else is there in life but her looks? The thought of losing them must terrify her. Poor kid really has been given nothing else to strive for. And because of falling into that trap, she now looks about 35, which people are commenting on in the social media, so she’s already got a faux mid-life crisis happening. I feel very sorry for her. No one seems to be watching out for her at all.

      • Susie Q says:

        Great post.

      • Bess says:

        The saddest thing is that Kris & Bruce/Caitlyn have zero excuses as to why they were unable to parent Kendall & Kylie. They had all of the time and resources available to spend time with their kids in positive ways. Instead Kris decided to pimp her two youngest out and Bruce/Caitlyn did nothing to stop her.

      • Very well said LALDIDABABY

      • Original Bess says:

        I have never watched their reality show, and just recently started looking at this site because of its interesting comments. Under the name Bess (now Original Bess), I have occasionally added my two cents. To this other “Bess”, I would not pass judgment on the parents of these two young ladies. Also, I understand what Kendall means in saying that social media, etc. “doesn’t seem real.” She is feeling that something about our society isn’t quite right. It’s ok to question, and it’s ok to feel a little scared. What’s not ok is for us to judge.

    • bob says:

      But on the plus side: Kylie can count!

  2. Tifygodess24 says:

    I would say the lack of education is a bit more terrifying.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      I was going to post the same thing. Perhaps she would not be so afraid of being 19 if she were better prepared for life.

    • Jen43 says:

      Baby Dolls you have so much privilege. Please get an education. You will never regret it.

      • We Are All Made of Stars says:

        Education, good parenting, and truly knowing and valuing oneself and what’s really important in life are the truest forms of privilege. She’s probably screwed.

    • bettyrose says:

      Yup. Exactly. Their world is so youth and plastic surgery oriented. They think age forces them into more medical procedures. That is, actually, terrifying.

      • Bitca says:

        Dunno… Kendall’s base level of creepy (to me) is about 90 degrees away from Kylie’s. I can still see a lost, human girl thru the latter’s surgeried face & form. But Kendall’s like this Stepford Model, After passing through puberty in front of cameras, she become expert at molding her expression into an ongoing, eerily empty selfy/Paps/Testino-shoot: 0 pout cum-1/2-smile (granted, she’s a natural – hee – in modelling. Can’t help being impressed).

        Like their elders, both sibs are uneducated, cut-off from IRL, & spawn of self-involved narcissists. And – in Kendall’s case we have evidence – the K/Jenners were raised to feel SO privileged – that it’s noblesse oblige to remind canaille like waitpersons & house staff of their place. [sources: the Great Kendall/HilBaldwin SoHo waitress shaft; other stories relating that Sr Jenner sis was banned from the Smith house by Jada, due to a disturbing habit of dissing domestic workers].

        What makes me sad about Kylie is the vulnerability of youth; she can’t hide it despite looking 27 rather than 17. They ‘re till forming her mimetic niche. Even w Tyga, Ky’s PR vibe is STILL too tame for Wild Child Goes Through Hell & Back, in’t she? At some point she & Kimbo will work together after they age out of a desirable demographic & try to revivify their careers…
        Sorry to be so downbeat, but most “reality” performers make me shudder.

    • Sherry says:

      +1000 This family is so focused on image and their looks, the thought of aging, even for 17 and 19 year olds terrifies them. I find that incredibly sad.

    • Darkladi says:

      So True

      • Belle Epoch says:

        Agree with this thread 1000%. It is very sad, and it is their Momager’s fault. She is the antithesis of aging gracefully. She won’t even let the little kids call her “Gramma.” Age brings wisdom, skills, discernment – characteristics they’ve never heard of and do not value. Are we sure they are human?

    • Liberty says:

      Seriously, I cannot imagine my 18 year old niece (or her friends) saying anything so incredibly stupid.

      [ok I texted my niece about this. She said, What idiots what d you expect tho] Of course, she’s educated. These girls never had a chance.

      Well, I suppose this is what a life of surgery and narcissism brings you when your “mother” is a desperate woman who in an effort to be young forever, vampires her own family for blood money and then on her own, actually looks a lot older than she is with her caked on makeup and weirdly dated-looking eye-glamour and Dynasty-meets-Macys wardrobe.

    • BooBooLaRue says:


  3. Kikigee says:

    Plenty of folks have said it before me, but I wish these people would GO AWAY! I’ve reached saturation point. It astounds me that the world celebrates them – they don’t have two brain cells between the lot of them.
    Right, rant over. Feel better now.

  4. Blythe says:

    Kylie sounds so vapid, or whatever.

    • Minnie says:

      No kidding! Did anyone else catch the “I’ve done so much this year, physically and whatever”. Is she actually owning up to all of the plastic surgery now?! So sad–17 is way too young for everything going on in her life. No childhood. 🙁

      • Nicolette says:

        Freudian slip? I caught it and was just going to comment on it. It just sums her up so perfectly, like whatever!

    • Boston Green Eyes says:

      Were you expecting a physicist or brain surgeon from this litter of idiots?


  5. Loulou says:

    *barf* to everything in this article, except for Kendall’s tweet to her dad. That was pretty sweet.

    Also, don’t minors needs parental consent to get the Pill? How would Kris be so surprised Kylie was on birth control?

    • Lilacflowers says:

      No, they don’t. Minors can get access to birth control and treatment for STDs without parental consent in many states.

      • Sarah says:

        Nor should they need parental consent! If a 14, 15 or 16 year old wants to have sex they’re going to – giving them easy access to birth control only helps society. They won’t NOT have sex without it, they’ll just have sex with risk of teenage pregnancy which is pretty much a bad thing for all involved.

    • Flora Kitty says:

      It was in the script for Kris to act surprised over Kylie using birth control.

    • Mare says:

      At least she’s on the pill and not trying to make little Tyga babies.

    • jwoolman says:

      Kris got her older daughters on the pill several years younger than Kylie. Of course she knew. All the surprise was just scripted. Don’t know why Khloe is playing along with the lies, she has been open about such things in the past. Anyway, I’m sure Kris had Kylie on birth control long before Tyga. And not “for her skin”.

  6. paola says:

    awww sweet little bird! She can count!! After 18 comes 19 and the 20..21..22..23..
    I didn’t know she could do that!!
    I don’t even know why I’m surprised with what they say. Of course they’re scared of growing older. Their lives are based on the shallowest of the shallow things and time is the only thing they rally can’t control with their money.
    Welcome to the real world bitchessss.

    • Loopy says:

      ‘awww sweet little bird! She can count!! After 18 comes 19 and the 20..21..22..23..
      I didn’t know she could do that!!’ LMAOOOO

  7. NewWester says:

    Considering how much Botox, fillers, plastic etc their older sisters and mother use to maintain their looks. Maybe Kendell and Kylie are more worried the supply will dry up by the time they are “old” and need it

    • Lilacflowers says:

      From the looks of Kylie, she isn’t waiting until she needs it.

    • Tate says:

      Kylie is already using all of those things. She looks just as plastic as her older sisters.

      It goes without saying but I will say it again….. this family is gross.

      • Citresse says:

        What plastic surgeon would agree to work on an underage patient?

      • bettyrose says:

        Agree. It’s freakin criminal, but clearly LA has willing plastic surgeons. Or perhaps they have a guy in Tijuana.

      • Tifygodess24 says:

        @citresse it’s not illegal to perform surgery on a minor with parental consent. It’s actually more common than people think. Doctors do it all the time. 13-18 is an actual tracked age group and there are pretty “impressive” stats up online. Some of the most popular procedures are nose, ears and breasts. This age group also uses fillers. It would seem crazy to most people that minors are getting surgery like this considering their bodies are still growing but it happens.

      • Citresse says:

        Tifygodess24, I didn’t think I could detest Kris Jenner more than I did, but how can anyone have respect for a woman who clearly uses and abuses her children for profit.
        I mean, I guess it pretty much began with parental pride with regard to her daughter Kim’s sex tape.
        And now we see the Jenner/Kardashians continue to make intl headlines. Why is it intl news for Kim Kardashian’s second pregnancy? Everything and everyone eventually reaches a demise but this family seems to defy any concept of a shelf life. The question is God, why???????

      • Brittaki says:

        I think in some cases plastic surgery on minors is okay, but this is not one of those cases. For example, I saw a program about a middle school-aged boy who was made fun of for his big ears so much that he was contemplating suicide. His parents agreed to let him have surgery to have his ears pinned back. He was much, much happier afterward and his confidence in himself was restored. In that case I think it was a good thing that a minor was allowed to have plastic surgery, but obviously these vapid young girls who want to emulate their blow-up doll looking sisters for attention and Instagram likes don’t come anywhere near the story I saw. It’s a case of good versus evil and if PMK were any kind of decent parent she wouldn’t have allowed her young daughter to butcher up her face in order to look “hot.” But what can you expect with this family? Le sigh.

  8. MonicaQ says:

    I’m not usually one to use the “but there’s children starving in Africa” trope but these two have no idea how scary life can truly be.

  9. QQ says:

    Well, they DO come from a household where your original parts all have a sell by date so It’s Not strange they’d be worried about not being a profitable pretty marketable young tender

  10. INeedANap says:

    Kylie has the body Kim thinks she has.

    • QQ says:

      The ABSOLUTE HOLLERING BRAYING Guffaw i just had at this comment!!!

    • Darkladi says:

      Cant breathe from 15 minute donkey laugh!! 😂

    • DEB says:

      I think Kylie is getting but injections … that’s the “I’ve gained weight” you see there. Teenagers gain weight and their figure fills out but not like that.

      • bella says:

        and wait till her body begins filling out naturally on top of the implants and “whatever” she’s had done.
        she will look like kim exactly.
        too much artificial stuff on top of the natural maturing…
        she’ll look huge when she wouldn’t have otherwise.

        these girls are everything that’s wrong with youth…
        plastic, shallow, materialistic…

        i feel sorry for them because they never stood a chance with their vapid mother guiding them to strive for nothing more…

        that kendall…she’s simply gorgeous…
        i hope she doesn’t mess with her natural looks…

      • Ennie says:

        Kendall is pretty right now, but her beauty could be like Brooke Shields’.

        Brooke was one of the most beautiful girls I had ever seen when she was a teen/young adult, but as soon as she was a full grown adult, she was still very beautiful, but it was not the exact same, her features were not the same
        Adriana Lima or Milla kept the same type of beauty more time.
        KEndall will probably evolve from the young face she has now into something more like her mother.
        I cannot but think of the athletic potential these girls had, like becoming sportswoman in their own right, and even win medals, why not?
        Instead, they prefer to do whatever they do. SMH.

      • Mintessence (the original Minty) says:


        Just commented to agree with you, as nearly everyone here expressed what I was feeling regarding the Kardashian/Jenner spawn.

        I thought Brooke Shields was so beautiful as a teenager, but by the time she was in her twenties, she lost some of the feminine softness in her face. Her cheeks and jaw became very chiseled and strong, which altered her looks into something that was masculinized/androgynous. The fashion industry LOVES androgyny in their female models, whether it really works or not.

        The same thing happened with Cindy Crawford. She’s always had a strong jaw and chin that were once softened by the contours of youth. As she’s aged, she lost the facial fat and softness. You can really see the hard edges of her bone structure now. These days, when Brooke and Cindy appear at public events with too much makeup, they look a bit like drag queens.

    • TeaAndSympathy says:

      INeedANap, thank you! I couldn’t find the words to say what I was thinking, but you’ve found the perfect way of stating my feelings.

    • Hannah says:

      No, kendall has the body Kim thinks she has.

  11. Amy Tennant says:

    I actually can’t pile on to these girls right now. I’m just so sad for them. It’s tragic the way they feel. I blame their family for being so looks- and youth-obsessed. These young women have internalized their family’s hangups and the message they’ve sent. It’s heartbreaking. They can’t even enjoy their youth because they’re so scared of it fading. I don’t think it’s their fault entirely, y’all. Think of how young they were when their show started. 🙁 They grew up in this.

    • We Are All Made of Stars says:

      Yup, I remember them all of seven or eight years old, lifting their shirts up and twirling around on the stripper pole in their parents’ bedroom yelling “Girls gone wild! Girls gone wild!” They didn’t stand a chance.

      • Petee says:

        I remember that too.I thought it was gross.That was the last time I ever watched that disgusting show.

      • Christin says:

        One of the few episodes I watched. And I realized then that even the youngest were likely doomed.

    • Wren says:

      That’s how I felt too, just so….. sorry for them. I’m not exactly looking forward to looking old myself and I was raised in a family that values intelligence and usefulness far above appearance. Mostly because our culture places so much (stupid) value on women’s youth, it really can feel like one “expires”. Now imagine if you were raised with that dogma and everyone you look up to believes it and takes active measures to “prevent” aging. They have nothing else but their youth, no education, no real skills, nothing that will bring them joy or worth when their youthfulness is gone, and on some level they seem to realize this. It’s heartbreakingly sad.

  12. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Gag. I couldn’t even finish reading this. These people make me feel like taking a shower.

  13. Lucy2 says:

    Honestly…they should be afraid of growing older. All of their values are tied to their appearance, they have nothing else to offer, and no intellect or education to rely on. Once they aren’t the pretty new thing anymore, it’s going to be a long, sad road for them.
    Plus they’re probably looking at with their mom and sisters do to themselves with all the surgeries, and that is pretty terrifying!

    • Bess says:

      Agreed. I also don’t think they’re prepared for what happens when they’re not on tv any more.

    • Nicolette says:

      Come on now, Lucifer’s Homegirl has made enough deals with the devil and has spent enough hours around her cauldron that they will probably never age.

  14. EN says:

    Cheer up girls, when the only other alternative is dying, life is not so bad, lol.

  15. bettyrose says:

    I was terrified too at their age. All the “adults” in my life seemed so joyless, so I thought age did that to you. So so so wrong. Life just gets better with experience and wisdom.

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      That’s actually funny because I remember crying the day before my 13th birthday because I didn’t want to become a teen. It seemed like the beginning of the end and such a horrible thing. Haha. Everyone would say how horrible teens were and then you all of a sudden grew up , got old and grumpy and time flashed by. So clearly I wanted no part in all that nonsense. Now as a 34 year old woman I would do anything to be a teen again! I didn’t realize how good I had it!!

    • Cirque28 says:

      When I hear these kids grumbling about their incipient old age, I feel sorry for them. My forties are way better than my thirties. My thirties were miles better than my twenties and my miserable self-destructive teen years (during which I, too, fretted about getting old) bear no mention.

      • bettyrose says:

        Exactly! Although it’s understandable that a teen wouldn’t realize that, these girls are in a culture that teaches them their youth is their most valuable asset. “Normal” teens have future goals to look forward to in adulthood. Even though I was scared of adult hood, I had dreams of some day being my own person away from my parents.

  16. Bess says:

    This little article shows exactly why i feel nothing but contempt for Caitlyn Jenner. Step up and be a parent.

    • Nicolette says:


    • meme says:

      Amen to that. All this family cares about are being considered beautiful and making money. These two Jenners are beyond vacuous.

    • GingerCrunch says:

      Right! Now maybe Caitlyn could be the mother they never had. Not holding my breath, of course.

    • lucy2 says:

      Agreed – I fully support her in terms of the gender stuff, but as a parent? Shitty.

    • Liberty says:

      this, yes.

      • bella says:

        glad someone is saying this.
        kris as a “mother.”
        bruce, now caitlyn, as the other parent???
        did either parent these girls?
        it seems each has always been too busy tending to their own needs.

  17. Naddie says:

    The only part I agree with is that things are really going on too fast. Life’s happening way too fast, I hear that from everyone, including myself. And, just like someone said, they really should be afraid of aging, since they’re empty inside.

  18. Sassback says:

    It’s so funny, Kylie’s silhouette in that green dress is similar to that of Khloe or Kim. It’s funny to see the youngest getting into the Kardashian style and Kendall breaking away from it. Kourtney is similar, she’s nothing like Khloe and Kim in terms of how she dresses herself.

  19. Susan says:

    They are the children of TWO parents. Two obviously physically obsessed and narcissistic parents. Everything, absolutely everything, PMK, Caitylyn, etc. about this family is SAD.and

  20. Micki says:

    Mentally not there and whatever…
    I wonder if she’d say the same to some 19-y-o terminal cancer patient.

  21. Jayna says:

    So Kylie got a big boob job. I didn’t realize that until now. When is her booty implant going to happen, I wonder? Thank God, Kendall seems to embrace her natural look. No fish lips, no boob job, no booty implant, no fillers.

    I think Kendall has turned out nicely. She’s still young and figuring it out. But she’s not high on drugs looking like trash or out drunk on table tops. She’s kind of quiet. She seems to work hard. She’s having fun at her age, as she should.

    My niece just turned 20 and she said it freaked her out a bit. She was the oldest in her class when she graduated high school. So hasn’t been out of high school all that long. She’s down to earth, in college, and works part-time, has a nice boyfriend. She’s a good girl. But she told me she still feels immature and 20 sounds so mature. It wasn’t about looking older. It was just what 20 signified to her in her mind.

    • Amy says:

      Kendall has had some work done but in that family it’s so far very subtle.

      Her bottom lip is much more pronounced than it was before, she and Kylie used to have the same lips and now they’re both different with Kylie’s being totally excessive.

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        Amy, I thought I was seeing things with Kendall’s lips, so thanks for confirming her lip work. In some photos, the top lip line looks very pronounced, as if there’s a cord threaded through. The enhancement was particularly noticeable the other day in a side-on photo.

        Cirque28, as far as nose jobs go, they might only see a nose as necessary for holding the designer sunglasses up.

    • Cirque28 says:

      And the nose is coming. I predict Kylie’s nose gets as surgeried-up as her mother’s nose (IOW: barely functions as a nose and cannot intake oxygen).

    • pleaseicu says:

      Kendall tries to keep her ish quiet but every now and then her spoiled entitlement seeps through. There was that story from about a year or so ago where she tried to skip out on a bill at a restaurant and then when she was chased down, she literally threw money at the server as she kept on walking. No tip, no apology, no explanation. Just rude.

  22. FingerBinger says:

    The only thing these two have to worry about is getting old. That must be nice.

  23. bns says:

    I’m around their age and I totally relate. Getting older is scary. And the older you get the faster time seems to move.

    • bella says:

      it’s natural to wonder about/fear aging to a certain extent.
      the key is focusing on what you have…those you love…being the best you can be and being there for loved ones.
      the fear of aging falls away when you embrace the good.

      gotta say though…
      time passes more and more quickly as we age.
      so expect it…
      and treasure the time you are blessed to have!

    Kylie looks like a dog with this collar.

    As an 18 year old, I guess I feel a little bit the same way. At this stage, you’re in a lovely little bubble where you have support financially and emotionally from your parents, should you need it, but you’re also tasting freedom and feeling out where your boundaries are.

    I’m headed to college in September, and again, I will be in a youth-orientated bubble there. I am definitely scared of growing older, leaving the bubble of youth, and having to take full responsibility. At the moment, I live on my own and do all my budgeting and so forth. But it is nice to know that if there is an emergency or you f*** up, your mother can help you fill out the paperwork or support you financially if needed. Being an adult means not having as much of a safety net (at least within my family, after college it’s very much your responsibility to sort your life out), and it’s definitely not fun thinking about that.

    I’m hoping Kylie means it in that vein, because that would make absolute sense to me. I also understand the fear of maybe leaving your twenties? Because biologically, the clock starts ticking then, and that’s another ‘deadline’ that can be frightening. But I am afraid she probably does mean she doesn’t want to physically age even a year or two, which is weird.

    Man these two twats need to spend time with a single mother of 2 or 3 , who works a full time job etc .

    Just makes me sad, but not surprised. Their parents have shown them that aging is unnatural and something to be feared, reinforced by the celeb culture they live in.

    Of course they’re terrified. Their self worth and income depends on their looks. I am very curious to see what kim will do once she loses her sex appeal and people lose interest.

    While it is tempting to blame it on the family, I was also melodramatic about aging as a child and teen. There is something real behind the fear, when you are young in our culture you are constantly celebrated, you are so smart/talented/whatever “for a kid” versus growing up and being a very little fish in a very big pond. Now that obviously is not true for lots of kids on our country, but for a certain segment it is. I was much more freaked out about turning 20 than I was about turning 30.

    Only commenting because Kris Wu looks perfect on that magazine cover. I was waiting for this picture to be put on here

  31. Isa says:

    I’m only 27 but I have thoughts like this all the time. I blame it on working in healthcare though. I am currently working at a SNF and I see a lot of pain, decline in function, and fatigue. It makes me appreciate my youth even more, but at the same time I feel like everything is moving too fast. The people I’m taking care of all feel like they were my age just the other day.

  32. Amanda says:

    I’ve always been terrified of getting older. I’m 23 and every year I feel worse about another year having gone by; life goes by too quickly and I can’t bear the idea of not being young and being able to do all the things I want to do. Plus our culture always claims the “best days of your life” are in high school and college, so having just graduated college, it is really hard to leave those days behind. Nothing to do with being shallow.

    Meanwhile, Prince Jackson (MJ’s son) just graduated highschool with honors, and is planning to attend college.

  34. KY says:

    Both deserve what’s coming to them, these two will look like puppet faced caricatures by the time they hit thirty. Awful people don’t deserve my sympathy!

  35. These girls will have the most ‘issues’ out of the whole clan. At least the older ones grew up before the reality world found them. That’s all these girls know. They have pretended their entire lives for the cameras. Plus they are maturing in the public eye while the Kardashians fame is in rapid decline. Their world is so shallow but still tough beyond what they yet know. I will take my simple, non surgically altered life over what they live any day of the week. The fact they both got away from Kris ASAP speaks volumes!
