I always forget that Kylie Jenner is a “model” too, just like Kendall. Kylie’s “modeling” career is a bit more hit-or-miss, although she has walked a few runways and more than that, she gets hired to do utterly random magazine editorials. Kylie covers the December/January issue of Interview Magazine and the Steven Klein editorial is… um…ah… well, it’s not good. Let’s start there. Kylie shows off her butt (implants) in some of the photos, and she’s wearing a Jackie Kennedy wig in all of the photos. I think the point of the editorial is supposed to be that Kylie is a “doll,” because of course that’s never, ever been done before. The wheelchair photos in particular are somewhat disturbing – like, are wheelchairs the new “fashion trend”?
You can see the full editorial & read the interview here at Interview. Just FYI, reading a two-page interview with Kylie is like watching paint dry. She’s a vapid, superficial, barely literate 18-year-old with very little to say. Some highlights:
She’s not, like, materialistic: “What I think is so amazing about having everything, and feeling like I have everything, is that I don’t really find happiness within materialistic things. Like, it’s cool if I can buy myself a new car, and I think it’s amazing for a week, but then the thrill is over, and I’m like, “Oh, so I guess that wasn’t really happiness.” I’ve realized through the years that I just find happiness in other things, whether it’s my dogs or my friends or, like, looking at the sunset. So if I were to wish for something else, it would just to be happy all the time, to have a superpower of not letting things affect me, and to be true to who I am, always.”
She reads the comments: “I always just try to stay sane and not read comments. It’s hard though. You get interested. I’m young and I’m a girl, so, when I post something, I want to see what people are saying or what they think of my photos. I’ve found it better if you don’t read anything and you just always stay off that track. I’m just trying to not lose myself through this process, because I feel like I’ve already lost parts of me, like, my youth.
She feels like she’s 35? “I feel like I’m going to look back and be like, “Damn, I wish I could’ve just been a kid and done normal teenage stuff that my friends get to do.” But it also is a blessing, and I’ve done so many things that most 35-year-old women still haven’t done. You can look at anything glass-half-full or whatever. Like, yesterday I realized that I’m 18, I’m a female, and I have accomplished so much. I live in a beautiful home and I work really hard, so I’m just grateful.
She’s not going to college: “I’m not going to college. I have done everything to prepare for college, so if I wanted to in the future, I could go at any time. But I’m not planning on going anytime soon. [voice heard in the background] Kim just said, “Good girl!”
Not only is youth wasted on the young, but money is wasted on people who have no interest in making larger contributions to society. In the Kardashian-Jenner family, an 18-year-old is praised for NOT going to college. She’s held up as an example of a person who “works hard” and has something to say about life. Ugh.
