Well, they’ve done it again. The Kardashian family has yet again lured me into their web of tangled contradictions. This time it’s Kendall Jenner leading the charge, who, even though she’s not a full Kardashian, still knows her way around a publicity stunt, so don’t get it twisted. Kendall gave an interview to Harper’s Bazaar Arabia (you know, as you do), and discussed a range of topics from body image to maintaining her privacy, to the different personality types of her sisters Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe and the advice she gets from each. Shockingly, she doesn’t appear to get any advice from mom Kris Jenner, but you can still spot her influence — you know, by the fact that Kendall says she has body issues and values her privacy…while still appearing on the covers of magazines. But she has lots of fun viewpoints to share, most of which she immediately contradicts in the next sentence. It’s a real roller coaster of an interview; I think you’re gonna love it.
“I am constantly criticized for being too skinny. I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen. What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it’s not a nice feeling.”
You know what, I actually agree completely agree with that. No one should be calling you too skinny, because that’s the same kind of body-shaming that’s so clearly not okay when someone is called overweight. THAT SAID. You are obviously much more beautiful than the average anyone, and you’re blessed with the kind of body that makes people want to employ you as a model, so it’s hard for me to rustle up a super ton of sympathy for you. Also, you constantly appear in and upload your own strangely explicit pictures of your body to Instagram, so get your facts straight and then come back to me. Or…you know, don’t, and say more stuff like this:
“I’m a very loyal and very private person when it comes to my personal life. But I obviously do have Twitter and Instagram, and I will share some of the things I’m doing. I like to promote my work when I’m at a photoshoot. I love to take pictures of myself or with the crew. But my personal life, I try to keep to myself as much as I can. I mean, I do get that I have a reality TV show, so it’s kind of contradicting myself, but at the same time, I’m trying to stay a little more private.”
Oh boy. Where to begin. Kendall! Whether it’s your choice or not, you are the opposite of a private person! And I don’t even need to tell you why, because you hit all the points yourself in this interview! A. You have a Twitter, B. You have an Instagram, C. YOU HAVE A REALITY SHOW, D. You’re giving us this information in a magazine interview. There is almost nothing about your life that is private. Any opportunity you have to make something private, you choose to make it public instead, so I’m not biting. There’s nothing wrong with the way you choose to live your life in the public eye, but you gotta own it, lady.
