Kylie Jenner is one of the most popular members of the Kardashian clan, second only to Kim based on social media followers. Born in 1997 and being the youngest in the family, she has a boat load of advantages considering that that her family’s inherent popularity offers significant leverage in the entertainment industry. This is not to mention the millions of fans and cash that comes with that.
“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 also talked about how hard it is for her to always stay happy amid the matrix of judgments and news spawn about her, saying that as a girl in her teens, she always finds it hard to avoid looking at comments about her posts on social media and such, but usually tries not to. Asked whether she sometimes felt like she missed out on a lot of “normal” things in life, she answered that she did saying, “Damn, I wish I could’ve just been a kid and done normal teenage stuff that my friends get to do.”
She also added that it was an inevitable element in life and there are many women aged 35 who have never lived a life as “fulfilled” as hers. She cited her career and success on social media as some of her significant achievements at 18 stating, “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.”
About the influence she has on social media, the youngest Jenner admitted that she at times felt the pressure of being under the spotlight, especially after posting images on her social media accounts, but highlighted that she strove to stay authentic and not be carried away by all the attention and scrutiny.
“And I feel like that really helped me, because there’s a reason why I have so many followers and why people pay so much attention to me”. About her future plans, she offered that she would love to just go off the grid upon reaching 30, start a family, and hopefully raise chickens on her farm.
