Kendall Jenner, Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality TV star and model is the cover star for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine’s May 2017 issue. The supermodel opens up about fears for her safety, her famous clan, and growing up a tomboy in the magazine’s latest issue.
Dan Peres of Harper’s Bazaar had a chat with Kendall Jenner about living her dream, being famous and about her love life. The Supermodel was so down to earth and humble as she had a discussion about her life.
“I think people were afraid to say it to my face, but they were probably talking behind my back: She thinks she’s too cool. She’s stuck-up…too into herself”.
The 21-year-old model wasn’t all girly while growing up, to be frank, she was a bit tomboyish and nothing like her older siblings.
“I’ve always been the different one. I mean, I’m a girl and I like being a girl, but I’ve just never been into it like they have. I think I get that from my dad. I’d say I’m more of a Jenner than a Kardashian.”
Imagine her disappointment when she found out the person who taught her all she new wanted to be someone else.
She and her sisters would find clues around the house, a wig here, some nail polish there. “It was like an investigation for a really long time,” says Kendall. “We would find little things and think, ‘This isn’t normal.’ For a minute, we were like, ‘Okay, is he cheating?’ And then we’d say, ‘I don’t think so.’
Then there was the time, about a year before Caitlyn formally introduced herself to her family, when Kendall was thirsty in the middle of the night, made her way downstairs, bleary-eyed, for a glass of water and saw … her. “My heart dropped,” she says. “That’s when she would dress as herself, at four in the morning, before we would get up. So that was like, ‘Whoa,’ for a second.”
By the time Caitlyn told his kids, Kendall says she already “kind of knew” but had been in denial. “When she told us that it was going to be a real thing, it was an emotional couple of months,” she said. “And if I would talk about it, I would cry, just because you’re mourning someone…losing someone. The person is still there, of course, but physically you’re losing someone. It was my dad who I grew up with my whole life and who raised me. It’s an adjustment, for sure. But honestly, you start to realize that this person is still alive. This person is still here. They are still a blessing. They are still awesome. I realized that I should just be thankful that I still have my dad. It starts to just become normal. You’re just like, ‘Okay, cool.’
Kendall had this to say about her love life:
I’m not marrying anyone, i’m not engaged. There’s nothing long-term or serious like that in my life. If I’m not fully, fully in it with someone, why would I make it public to everyone else? If I don’t even know what it is, why would I let the world know?
I think it’s something sacred, it’s something between two people, and nobody’s opinion needs to be involved in it. People want to start drama. If I had a boyfriend, people are going to say all this stuff that’s probably going to cause us to break up. I’m doing my thing, I’m having fun, I’m being young. She says but doesn’t reveal anything she doesn’t want the world to know
