Kylie Jenner admits, ‘I take, like, 500 selfies to get one I like’

Kylie Jenner

Here are photos of Kylie Jenner looking robotic at the Mail’s Cannes Lions yacht party on Wednesday. These photos aren’t very well lit, but Us Weekly has a picture that shows Kylie’s makeup malfunction. She got carried away with the concealer, but I barely noticed since she’s barely wearing anything. Of course Kris Jenner is posing alongside her 17-year-old daughter like everything is perfectly normal. At least this outfit didn’t require duct tape, but the rear shot (over on Instagram) is slightly more revealing.

Kylie spoke with the Mail during the party. She addresses her financial independence, her friendship with Tyga (ha), and how much work she puts into achieving the perfect selfie:

The art of the selfie: “I take, like, 500 selfies to get one I like. Sometimes I regret putting one up if I find a better one later. I’m like damn, that’s a better photo, but that’s the only thing I regret.”

On Tyga: “Tyga’s one of my best friends ever so it’s so much fun to travel with him. I always like having my friends out on the road with me. He’s doing some stuff out in Cannes, so it’s just fun.”

On Kris: “I love to hang out with my mum as well. She’s wilder than me. Last night, I went to bed at midnight and she stayed out much later than me doing her thing. She taught us from a young age how to support ourselves and I think it was a great thing to learn.”

[From Daily Mail]

Now Kylie is calling Tyga “one of my best friends ever.” She’s still playing coy even if Tyga doesn’t care any more what people think. Tyga was at the yacht party too. He and Kylie posed with Kris and her boytoy, Corey Gamble. Are you surprised to hear that Kris stays out later than her own daughter? I’m not, nor is it shocking to hear that Kylie spends so much time on selfies. She learned from the best.

I’m including some airport photos Kylie and Tyga dressed up like twinsies, all the way down to the shoes. Because that’s what best friends do.

    Tyga alwas has this dumb expression right? Sleepy eyes, open mouth..

  2. BengalCat2000 says:

    This story is so depressing. Why do I read these things?! Kitten videos for the rest of the day!

    • BRE says:

      I KNOW! I know she is only 17 but she already seems like a lost cause. She will be in playboy by 20 and her face will be completely ruined by 25. Plus, there is something a bit mental about the fact she is trying SO hard to look like Kim.

    • Shambles says:

      Seriously. That top photo of Kris and Kylie is the scariest/saddest thing I’ve ever seen. Truly worth a thousand words. Ugh.

      ETA: I just noticed that Kylie and Tyga are wearing MATCHING SHOES, and now I’m sick. Cat videos, STAT.

      • Elisa the I. says:

        @Shambles: they are wearing the new adidas Yeezy Boost 350 by Kanye West. The sneakers will be launched this weekend:
        I actually think they look really nice. The shoes! :P

      • Shambles says:

        Elisa, I’ll definitely give you that. They’re sick shoes, and I would probably wear them myself. :D
        Just the fact that those two are matching, coupled with the predatory vibes this relationship reeks of… Blech.

      • Kitten says:

        Really? I think those sneakers are hideous. But what do I know? I’m not hip like these kids.

        *runs off to watch cat videos*

      • Denisemich says:

        I like the sneakers but don’t think I would pay the $200+.

        Kylie makes me so sad. I hope parents are explaining to their teens all the things that are wrong with her.

        No one needs to take 500 pictures of themselves a day. She is so insecure and uneducated it makes me want to scream.

      • qwerty says:


        She actually does need that, it’s the only thing she has to offer. She has no education, no personality and no idea what to do with her life other than show t!ts on insagram. Plus, the money’s easy.

      • denisemich says:

        @qwerty, you know that is a definition for prostitution.

        The corrupt or unworthy use of one’s talents for financial gain

    • JohnWayneLives says:

      Jesus, she needs to get a hobby. Take up a sport or a paint brush. . SOMETHING. Fkn vapid people.

    • Katie says:

      All stories about this family are depressing. They’re so morally bankrupt and they’re proud of it. Her childhood was stolen from her by her mother.

  3. Yeses says:

    I don’t get what she sees in Tyga, or what he sees in her….both of them have the most vacant “One chicken nugget short of a happy meal” expressions…must be true love or something .

    P.S. Somebody please take away Kylie’s contouring kit asap!!

    • Jules says:

      Vapid loves vapid. And you don’t more vapid than this useless family.

    • qwerty says:

      I’m sure she’s heard – whether directly or not – that getting a rich guy is the most important thing a girl can do for her future. This is the result.

      • Zip says:

        Then why is she with that broke ass guy?

      • qwerty says:

        He’s not Kanye-rich bu he ain’t broke. Even ef he has just 8 mln like google says, that;s just a start – her contemporaries are dating guys who still live off their pocket money. We all know she won’t stay with him forever. He’s probably just the best what she (her mother) could get now that she’s still a minor.

  4. Jayna says:

    It’s so sad There are no words to adequately describe the shallowness of this girl. She is a mixture of Kim and Khloe. Yes, Khloe. I used to love Khloe, but with her fake lips and fake booty and her five million selfies, and Kylie calling her a mother figure, she also has influenced the narcissistic tendencies of this girl.

    • Tessa says:

      The thing that redeems Khloe is that she cares so much about all of these lunatics. She holds the family together and genuinely cares and loves them. She has feels.

      • Kitten says:

        You know that the bar has been set REALLY low for these people when we’re applauding one of them for being capable of normal human emotions.

        In the real world, it’s actually very common to care about your folks.

      • Tessa says:

        Seriously. In a sea of robots, there’s a beating heart among them.

    • Bella says:

      @ Jayna, I agree with you about FORMERLY liking Khloe. I blame her a lot for what a vapid, pathetic person Kylie is becoming. If Khloe is the one she looks up to, why can’t Khloe tell her to cool her jets with the plastic surgery and the 25 year old boyfriend when she is only 17?! It’s gross. I saw a coming attraction for the new season of their show and Khloe and Kylie are sitting there playing with Kylie’s birth control pills and when their mother asks if they’re for her skin, Khloe’s response is, “What do you think she does all day? Knit sweaters?” This is coming from a woman who wrote a sob story about how much she regretted sleeping with an older man while she was a teen in the book she co-wrote with her sisters. Apparently if her little sister is making the same mistakes, it isn’t her problem and she doesn’t care enough to try to steer her in the right direction.

      I disagree that Khloe has any kind of great love for her family that makes her exceptional. My sister would NEVER have let me date a 25 year old man at 17, or walk around half naked. THAT is being a loving sibling… Not turning a blind eye because she doesn’t care enough to bother. It is so obviously “every man for himself” in their family, even Kris Jenner can’t be bothered. They’re all so selfish that no one can be bothered to say, “Kylie, you wear too much makeup. You don’t need your lips that big. Put some clothes on. Date a guy your own age.”

      Kris Jenner and Kylie are beginning to give me Big Edie and Little Edie Beale vibes.

    • Blackcat says:

      Yeah, she’s so shallow I’m surprised she doesn’t blow away. Actually, that would be great.

  5. sensible says:

    I feel like I am seeing Kris Jenner nipple in that dress, must be an unfortunate print or something.

  6. Zip says:

    She always looks sad and unconfortable.

    • Wren says:

      Wouldn’t you? Her life is truly sad and the clothes that she’s stuffed into for appearances always look deeply unpleasant to wear. And that’s it. That’s her life. She’s stuffed into clothes far too mature for her age to make paid appearances and she spends the rest of her time getting dolled up and taking pictures of herself. She has to sell herself every single day of her life and has known nothing different.

      • Zip says:

        Yes, I’d miserable too if I was her. Her parents don’t care about her, she has no education to base a career on, she’s insecure about her looks and her sisters advise her to get plastic surgery (as a minor!), and still she gets shoved in front of the camera by her mother. I’ve noticed that she’s been looking this sad for quite a while and I can’t help but somehow feel sorry for her.

  7. Loopy says:

    Kris should not be wearing that oufit at all, and not because of her age, it is so unflattering on her.

  8. Snazzy says:

    For the life of me I do not understand that dress

  9. Shambles says:

    Same old song and dance.

    1. All she has to talk about are selfies. Stimulating.

    2. She looks dead in the eyes, frozen in the face, and like she’s being pimped for all she’s worth. Sad.

    3. Kris looks like she’s loving every minute of it. Satan.

    • Kitten says:

      So, SO dead-looking. She reminds me of those women who get all that PS to look like a living doll. They wear special contacts and train themselves to be able to hold their head in a certain way to perfect the ultimate lifeless expression. It’s creepy as hell.

      This chick:

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        I’ve seen that girl before, Kitten. Is she the Russian girl? She’s really creepy looking. She’s the opposite of one of those dolls that are so lifelike they give you the heebie-jeebies. That’s the only way I can describe the feeling when I see her. **Shudders**

        As for Kylie, I think Wren summed up her situation very well, except that I’d add what Bella saw in the promo as she and Khloe played with her BC pills: “What do you think she does all day? Knit sweaters?” I wonder what the situation will be like when Kylie turns 18? It’s not as if she’ll have done 10 years of maturing between now and then.

        I was reading something somewhere the other day that made me recall the past … Before there was social media there was Jerry Seinfeld and Shoshanna. Who remembers that relationship? She was also 17, but wasn’t he 38 or something? That’s just….off.

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah she’s Russian and there exists a whole group of women who try to look as doll-like as possible. It’s an actual thing.

        I was still pretty young when the Shoshonna/Seinfeld thing happened so I never really followed that gossip, but there should have been public outrage. Or maybe we had magazines like People validating it by calling it “cute.”

      • Shambles says:

        Omg Kitten, I first heard of the Russian Barbie woman + gaggle of doll girls when reading an article about the uncanny valley. They creep me out so hard that I’m utterly fascinated by them. Especially because Russian Barbie is also apparently a galactic universe traveler who cruises through other dimensions and can exist on nothing but air. Anywho, Kylie is definitely paying rent in the uncanny valley.

      • Kitten says:

        @Shambles-I totally understand because when I first read about them, I was mesmerized by the photos.

        On a positive note, what they are able to do with their makeup is pure artistry—-even the costumes, etc, are pretty freakin cool.
        On a negative note, I’m pretty sure they’re setting back the feminist movement by 200 years.

        Still, I totally get the fascination, because I fell down a rabbit hole of doll-women myself.

        (That sounded creeper than I meant it to)

  10. MrsBPitt says:

    This girl is 17 years old, and should have better things to do than snapping 500 selfies, and trying to find the perfect one. Too bad, she was taught since birth, that a woman’s worth is only in how she looks…very sad…

    • Kitten says:

      I really hate to defend her but I’m not sure the 500 selfie thing is unique to just her, I think a lot of teenagers waste time with that shit.

      I was at the beach a couple weeks ago and two teenage girls busted out the selfie stick for an impromptu photo shoot in their bikinis and no lie, they were taking photos for about 45 minutes. It was really f*cking weird and made me thankful that I had the chance to enjoy my teens way before the age of selfies and social media.

      • Wren says:

        To be fair, when I was 17 I’d bust out my camera (because smartphones didn’t exist) and spend 45 minutes trying to get my horse to put her ears forward and look cute to get the perfect picture. A complete waste of time, but oh well. I am glad I didn’t have social media to agonize over, I wanted photos to (gasp) print out and frame.

      • shi_gatsu says:


      • Kitten says:

        @Wren-I’m 36 and I still do that with my cats, so maybe I’m a hypocrite. lol

      • Delta Juliet says:

        No, because there is a world of difference between taking a picture of a subject, and taking endless pictures of yourself. One is art, one is narcissism. Although I’m sure some one argue that they are both ‘art”

  11. MonicaQ says:

    Did Kris seriously contour her stomach? Because WOW. WOOOOOOOOW.

    I’m not one for “age shaming” or whatever but that’s a little revealing even for me and I’m 30. Woah.

  12. NewWester says:

    Kylie says the only thing she regrets is posting a bad selfie. I would not be surprised in ten years she regrets hooking up with Tyga and wasting her teen years.

    • Petee says:

      Word.Like this is going to last.And she is wasting her teen years on this relationship.If a sex tape is “leaked” who would watch it?He is so hard on the eye’s and people have total disgust for this family.

  13. Lucy2 says:

    I can’t imagine if the only thing I had to do in my life was take hundreds of photos of myself. How incredibly sad, boring, and pathetic.

  14. Absolutely says:

    I’m so beyond grateful that I did not grow up in the selfie generation. I can’t even imagine the horrible self esteem these teenagers must have. That you think so little of your time and self worth that you would waste hours critiquing yourself to get a perfect picture to throw up on the internet…inviting the entire world to critique you even more.

  15. Susan says:

    I wonder if Tyga pays for anything or if it’s all on Kyle. I thought he was broke. Every photo of Kyle in that white gown shows her hand covering her crotch. She’s awkward and you can tell the odd sheep of the family.

    • Janis says:

      I noticed the crotch move in every photo too. She’s obviously uncomfortable in these ridiculous sheer skirts. (Please let this trend die already!) And in white too. How bridal of her. Kylie looks so cheap with those lips and all the fake-looking contouring. Like a hooker on display. And Kris. SMH That dress doesn’t suit her at all. Ugh. And the hair LOL. I wonder how much she’s paying Corey Gamble to be seen with her.

      • sassy says:

        Whoever thought Granny panties showing through a dress was attractive? Did you see kim’s outfit in black. The panties could house a 1000 refugees

      • chaine says:

        @sassy, the probably have…

  16. Dhavynia says:

    Are those the same fug shoes her sister was wearing? I have a sad feeling that some idiots are going to spend lots of cash to wear the same crappy shoes, sigh. What happened to our sociaty?
    I didn’t even read the post, the heading was enough to make me want to convulse
    What’s next? An article on how long these people look at themselves in a 360 mirror?

  17. Micki says:

    This girl spent a lot of money to achieve a particularly cheap look.

  18. lisa2 says:

    I believe she is being groomed to be the Next Kim.. like it or not Kim is getting older and being a Mom of 2/married is going to put her in a new category. This girl has nothing but her Mom and the possibility that she can become the next Kim for her Mom. She wants it all so badly. Very thirsty. She dresses like Kim and doesn’t smile in photos like Kim..

    All About Eve

    Her sister is actually doing well and really doesn’t need the family like she does and she like Kim are a bit jealous because they both wish they had that model figure.. but they don’t; they have a “pin up girl figure”.

  19. Barrett says:

    she was an attractive to normal looking girl. She can’t handle that and sadly in her in environment your hustle is all about your looks and sex appeal. Like Miley she shows too much and so it actually gets old and boring.
    There is no hope for her. It’s refreshing when the occasional celebrity usestheir wealth and time to help others. But her role models tell her to spend time taking 500 selfies.

  20. Tiffany27 says:

    Whatevs. I’m pregnant so I don’t even have anything negative to say about these fools.

    • Kitten says:

      Congrats! :D

    • Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

      But you just called them fools.

      Congratulations on being pregnant.

    • Trillion says:

      Congrats! I hope you’re feeling well. I was so sick during my 1st tri, the only two things that made me feel better were sudoku and spending LOTS of time on CB. That was almost 8 yrs ago.

  21. grabbyhands says:

    Why do I keep clicking on these stories? Because I honestly can’t figure out how a 17 year old from a family of attention whores talking about how she takes like, 500 selfies a day, gets any press.


  22. littlemissnaughty says:

    Lord help her, that makeup is offensive. Girl, you’re 17. This is out of control. The only person this makeup would look fab on is a drag queen. I can’t even tell anymore if that’s what she’s actually going for.

    • EricaV says:

      Her no make up pictures – she looks like a completely different person. If I had worn this much makeup at 17 my mother would 1/2 drowned me from shoving my face in the sink to clean it off.

      I don’t even wear 1/4 of this amt of make up at 31. It’s just sad. Really sad and gross.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        I love makeup, I really do. It’s like a hobby and anyone who walks into my bathroom asks me WHY I need all this. Well, I don’t wear it all at once! That’s it, basically. Do NOT wear your whole makeup stash at once! But realistically, who would tell her? She’s emulating the rest of the family. I’m all for having fun with it but all I can think is “Damn, she’s painted for filth.” and that is not a thought you should have about a 17-year-old!

    • Bella says:

      @EricaV “Her no make up pictures – she looks like a completely different person.”

      Yeah she does!! And I hate to say it, but without makeup, Kylie looks a lot like Big Ang. The lips are ridiculous and horribly unattractive, and they make her look old and haggard, especially when she is walking around with bright red injection spots in her top lip. Her lips are based around her makeup; the size that she has them only looks less ridiculous when she has on a full face of makeup.

      I thought Kylie was really cute before all of the plastic surgeries and enhancements. She was undeniably a plain jane in comparison, especially to Kendall, but she was really cute. When she first got her lips done and wore 90% less makeup, she looked great. Her new trout pout is so incredibly unflattering and she looks more and more dead-eyed and similar to a blowup doll every single day. Her ass is miraculously growing by the day as well.

      I think she looks really pretty and fresh-faced on the left:

      It is amazing to me how much she has aged herself, and I find it so sad that no one close to her cares enough to be honest and tell her she looks terrible.

  23. als says:

    Kim was wearing these exact shoes at the airport photos. Did the Kardashians close a new endorsement deal?

    • FingerBinger says:

      They are air yeezy or something. Kanye designed them.

    • word says:

      They are Kanye’s new shoes. He thinks by having the Kardashians/Jenners wear them it will help increase sales lol. This is harming his brand really.

  24. sassy says:

    Does anyone else get a wedding vibe from the white clothes? UGH is it legal to marry in France at 17??

  25. chaine says:

    Kylie looks like a budget Kim Kardashian and Tyga=Poor Man’s Kanye West.

  26. Mispronounced Name Dropper says:

    You better start taking 1000 then because your selfies suck.

  27. Size Does Matter says:

    The irony when your makeup weighs more than your outfit.

  28. Susie Q says:

    Kylie should really get some cream for her yeast infection, this is the second time in as many weeks she has been photographed trying to subtly scratch her crotch.

  29. Liberty says:

    Looks 38, sounds like 13, found a way to “support herself” by 15 that involves 500 selfies and dating.

    Way to go, Kris Educational System & Khurch of K$Money.

  30. jwoolman says:

    How many selfies does she post a day? If she really means she takes 500 for every one posted – how long does that take? How much time per day is spent on her Instagram posts? My mind is boggled.

    I will no longer consider myself a crazy cat lady for taking an occasional picture or video of a cat with my cell phone….

  31. Murphy says:

    I hate how when an American says the word “mom” the Mail always changes it to “mum”. Drrr she didn’t say mum.

  32. shi_gatsu says:

    My heart is sick thinking about what these people stand for

  33. me says:

    Awww look there’s PMK with her Kim 2.0. Two more months and this girl will be 18. Just wait and see then….I think she will surpass anything Kim did.

  34. ILuvQuiet says:

    Good for you, little twit. Way to have absolutely no worthwhile skills. She’d better hope the dirty money never dries up.

  35. DEB says:

    The plastic surgery she’s had has already ruined her looks – at 17 years old. I can’t imagine. :( And Kris Jenner is too old to be wearing that sort of dress, sorry. Cover it up.

  36. Me too says:

    Wind tunnel lolololol. Wait hahahahah! So funny

  37. lucy says:

  38. Bunny Love says:

    Last time I heard the comment about someone showing them how to make money was from the creep who owns the Bunny Ranch on Real Sex on the HBO adult hour. Having now read what I just wrote -admitting I watch Real Sex is almost as embarassing as wasting my time thinking about the Trashians.

  39. holly hobby says:

    Kylie’s dress is horrid and why is her hand on top of her crotch in every photo? If you don’t feel comfortable in those rags (they are literally rags!), then don’t wear it.

    That girl looks like a caked up older 20ish year old – not 17. Such a shame.

    • Bella says:

      “Kylie’s dress is horrid and why is her hand on top of her crotch in every photo?”

      I honestly believe it’s because she feels insecure and unsure of herself because she knows the world knows how much plastic surgery she has had/continues to have. Her body language always appears to show her to be a sad little girl underneath all of her plastic surgery, stripper clothes and tonnage of makeup. Most people would see a 17 year old girl who hates herself so much that she decides to get a laundry list of procedures to change her appearance and take it as a cry for help. In the Kardashian family, it is just standard procedure.

      She is a sad, pathetic little girl with no one looking out for her.

  40. Skins says:

    I think that like, literally, says it all

  41. Mylene - Montreal says:

    “I take, like, 500 selfies to get one I like. Sometimes I regret putting one up if I find a better one later. I’m like damn, that’s a better photo, but that’s the only thing I regret.” ………………………………………………… regret …. she don’t no what regret is … poor little rich girl

  42. Jenn K says:

    God this guys soooo creepy

  43. Jade says:

    The sadder thing is not that she is turning into Kim 2.0, it’s that there are two more girls in the next gen that may become as vapid.

  44. iheartgossip says:

    GO TO SCHOOL and get an education. What a waste of humaness

  45. missmerry says:

    blend that face, girl.

    come on.

  46. anna says:

    Jeez a daily mail yacht party..obvi kardashians are number one on their payroll

  47. MSat says:

    I’m still confused as to why the Kardashians were there. This wasn’t the Cannes Film Festival – that would also be a stretch but since it’s about the entertainment industry I guess I could see that. This was the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity – it’s a gathering of marketing/media business and those who work in PR. (I’m dying to go!) So, unless Kylie is suddenly starting up her own ad agency, I really don’t get why she was there, doing interviews.

    I hate this family.

  48. Naddie says:

    State intervention on this one, NOW! She’s annoying, shallow, but a kid yet. It’s not fair.

  49. Me too says:

    It is shocking to me that kourtney and Kendall are the only somewhat normal ones in this family. I feel bad for Kylie. I remember what it was like to live as a normal 17 year old adolescent. People… Please
    Don’t judge this girl. Please judge the role models and ‘parents’ (ha!) in her life. F-ck Caitlyn! Yeah, my new name is Susan and I am totally different now. No, you cannot rewrite history or you lack of parenting with a new identity. Where are her parents??? She is still a minor and had been.

  50. Tracy says:

    I can’t take the poor grammar…”wilder than me”, “stays out later than me”. Ugh.

  51. crtb says:

    who has that kind of time?
