In the course of the latest episode of The Kardashians, Kendall Jenner addressed rumors from the general public about what type of person she is — a mean one. Within the episode, the model was visiting Las Vegas for work and feeling anxious, which makes her placed on a somewhat cool and detached persona. But she knows that this behavior can create misconceptions.
“I believe the one which hurts essentially the most is that folks think I’m a mean girl,” said Jenner. “Cause that is just not the case. It could actually be upsetting when someone is questioning your character. And if only people knew me.”
She continued in a side interview, “Anything I do gets hate. I could possibly be walking down the road doing absolutely nothing and someone all the time has something bad to say.”
After the Las Vegas event, which she found “overwhelming,” Jenner stated that she’d prefer to have a profession that is not within the highlight.
“I wanna be on a farm in Wyoming with a ton of animals,” she fantasized. “ “That is where I wanna be.”
The 818 tequila founder has discussed her issues with anxiety before, and said in an interview with i-D magazine in February that things have modified since she had more control over her image. She began appearing in her family’s reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians when she was still a baby.
“At a young age, I had to present up that control and let another person portray me in the best way that they desired to, for an editorial or a campaign or industrial – whatever it was,” she said. “That was my job.”
She added, “Now, being on the opposite side is taking that control back in a way, constructing my very own brand, and feeling empowered – and it has been really amazing. As a girl and as someone who comes from a very female-driven family, it was really cool to place all my tools to work.”
