Don’t kry for me, Kalabasasss! Despite being on camera pretty much 24/7 since she was 11 years old, 27-year-old Kendall Jenner recently said in an interview with WSJ.com (via People) that she’s never felt like she belonged in her attention-succubusing family and isn’t built for “this life,” which I’d assume konsists of Kris Jenner pitching new NBA (or Bad Bunny) “relationships” to Kendall pressuring her to pop out more money makers, and collecting her weekly paparazzi stroll report.
“Supermodel” Kendall says she didn’t choose the rich and famous K-trash life; the rich and famous K-trash life chose her, though she fancies herself more of a Jenner. What a Sophie’s Choice, eh?
The Kardashian family supermodel explained how she’s made peace with life in the spotlight alongside her famous family. “Since I was really young, I felt out of place in my family,” Kendall, 27, said for her WSJ. Magazine‘s Summer Digital issue cover story. “I was born into this life, but I didn’t choose this life.”
Kendall identifies with the Kardashian side of the family — but also strongly as daughter of Caitlyn Jenner, whose athleticism was the reason for her fame. “I obviously understand I fall under the umbrella of the Kardashian sisters,” she said. “It’s just weird to me … because I am just like my dad in so many ways. I’m such a Jenner, in my opinion.”
According to Kendall, her sisters were born for this and revel in ubiquitous public consumption, though it took her a really long time to accept it for herself. There, there, Kendall. Why the long
Now 16 years after their reality TV debut Kendall is just beginning to adjust to the pressures of the industry. Though she’s carved her own path as a model, Kendall still says some of her sisters have a natural grasp on fame — beyond her own understanding. “[Kim’s] like, ‘I used to go to Kitson on Robertson just to get photographed….’ I think she was built for [this life],” she said.
She added, “I’m not built for this by any means. I’m not good at it. I do it, and I’ve learned how to do it.”
As each sister branches into their own areas of the entertainment industry, Kendall is known for her print and runway modeling, as well as starting tequila brand 818.
Speaking of her adolescent years — in which she was no stranger to telling the paparazzi off as they followed her routines, she added, “It took me [almost] 20 years to be like, OK, I guess I’m getting used to it now and it’s fine and I get it.”
There’s always room in the basement with Rob Kardashian, Kendall. Poor thing; someone hand this girl a Pepsi! Here are a few of her WSJ. Magazine shots accompanied by more enthralling revelations:
