Kylie and Kendall Jenner Talk Life In The Spotlight

We’ve watched them grow up on “Keeping up with the Kardashians” and now Kylie and Kendall Jenner are opening up about their life in the limelight as well as their protective family. 

Kylie, 15, and Kendall, 17, have dealt with the glare of the media spotlight for as long as they can remember.  The girls are now aspiring models and fashionistas, who get a lot of advice from their big sisters, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. They shared it all with Glamour’s March issue – including why they are content being Jenner girls.

Glamour: What do you learn from each of your sisters?

Kendall: If we’re fighting, we call Khloé. She’s our peacemaker. Kourtney keeps us down-to-earth.

Kylie: Kim teaches us how to deal with the spotlight.

Glamour: Your family leads such a public life. Is that a good thing?

Kylie: Our family is closer because of the show. And when we are older, we’ll have the memories on tape. If some of those moments hadn’t been filmed, I wouldn’t remember them!

Kendall: We appreciate everything that we have, but we don’t remember what it’s like to be normal kids who aren’t harassed by the paparazzi. I hate that. We’re underage girls. I don’t want to be followed by random men I don’t know. It can also be hard to deal with other kids who are jealous or mean. I can’t post a picture on Instagram without being criticized.

Kylie: No one really knows what we are like. People read about us on Twitter, but they don’t know what we do all day long. We don’t really have privacy, but we have an aspect that people don’t know about.

Glamour: Between your brothers— Brody, Brandon, Burt, and Rob—and your sisters’ partners, Lamar, Scott, and Kanye, there are a lot of men in your lives. Are they protective?

Kylie: Rob checks on me at least three times a day, and Lamar wants to meet any guy we’re talking to. Just yesterday Scott was going over the kind of guy I should date.

Glamour: We have to ask: Do you ever think about the fact that your last name isn’t Kardashian?

Kendall: We’re full-throttle Jenners! We don’t have any desire to be Kardashians.

Kylie: All that matters is that we’re a family.

Glamour: Any style or beauty tips?

Kendall: I think a natural look is prettier. I rarely wear makeup, but we always wear sunscreen on our faces.

Kylie: I love leather pants. I’m obsessed with leather right now.
