Kendall and Kylie Jenner had barely hit double-digit ages when Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered in 2007. When the show became a massive hit, these younger Kardashian sibs found themselves growing up in the spotlight, and now they don’t even remember a time before they were famous!
“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,” Kendall told Glamour magazine. “I hate that. We’re underage girls. I don’t want to be followed by random men I don’t know.”
The paparazzi, she added, aren’t the only problem these public figures face. “It can also be hard to deal with other kids who are jealous or mean,” she explained. “I can’t post a picture on Instagram without being criticized.”
Kylie backed up her big sister, saying that though fans (or haters) may read about the girls on Twitter, “No one really knows what we are like.”
But there’s a plus side to leading such a public life, according to Kylie. “Our family is closer because of the show,” she said. “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!”
