Kim Kardashian and her sisters are known for their outspoken nature towards one another, as well as their often shocking tactics to heighten their popularity and appeal. The Kardashian-Jenner ladies are also often involved in a bit of sisterly competition over a number of things, such as fashion, popularity, and business successes.
Recently, Kim spilled to her sisters, by way of the family’s reality television show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, that she was not out for her own personal gain, but was concerned with helping her sister Khloe get the attention she deserves. Kim admitted to doing so by inventing a bit of competition between Khloe Kardashian and Kylie Jenner.
The faux competition had to do with Kim wanting Khloe to take on being the cover girl for the magazine Complex. Well, Khloe was convinced to go ahead with it, which apparently had many talking. As E! relays, Kourtney shared in regards to the response that came from the unveiling of Khloe on the cover.
“Everyone at the gym today was freaking out over Khloe’s Complex.“
Kim replied with a response that demonstrates her efforts for coaxing Khloe onto the magazine’s cover were worthwhile, but then relays to her younger sister Kylie how she used her as a ploy in order to get Khloe to take on the sexy shoot.
“No like this just brought Khloe’s stock up like 50 percent. Do you know that I told her that you got offered the Complex cover and I was like, ‘Kylie’s gonna get your cover and this is your one time, do you want your 17-year-old sister to outshine you? Step it up right now or Kylie’s doing the cover.’ And she’s like ‘OK OK I’ll do it I’ll do it.’ So I used you to coax her into doing it.”
The results were clearly what Kim and Khloe were anticipating and the cover is very much along the lines of ones that have been done by her sisters, Kim and Kendall. The Kardashian girls are known for their racy photo-shoots. Kim shocked the world last year when she went fully nude on the cover of Paper. Her model sister Kendall has been a part of a couple of shocking shoots also, yet hers have been more related to the fashion industry for which she is a face.
Beyond the racy shoots, the girls are generally keen to not only compete in a healthy way, but are also happy to support one another in endeavors. Kylie was granted an award by Time magazine due to the success she has seen with her clever app that steers women to find fashions like hers for an affordable price and also involves the teens beauty tutorial tactics. Kylie has outshone her older sister Kim in the app department, yet did not gloat when given the honor. Instead, when discussing why she believes her app has been far more successful than Kim’s, Kylie was gracious and shared how Kim has inspired her along the way. Us Weekly noted her words.
“Kim is so inspirational and she has the biggest drive. She’s so dedicated, she’s so smart, she’s such a businesswoman, and she’s always doing something and thinking of new ideas. She has inspired me to have a great work ethic. Kim’s older, she has a different fanbase. And she’s also—the difference between our apps is hers is very perfect. It’s simple, everything is black and white. Mine is more, I invite the cameras over and say, ‘Oh, hey, let’s just do this.’ We do makeup tutorials and I’m laughing and talking. I know my fans are my age or younger than me, so I just like to show my personality and show my fans my home and my dogs. I get really personal.”
