Kylie Jenner Laments Her Reality Fame: “I Still Wanna Be a Kid Sometimes”
While reality stardom may have plenty of perks, like adoring fans and sizeable paychecks, Kylie Jenner says that sometimes, she wishes she could go back to a time before the whole world knew her name.
The 16-year-old star, who was only 9 when Keeping Up With the Kardashians started filming, admitted to longing for a simpler life via Twitter on March 20.
“People think they know me,” Kris Jenner’s youngest daughter told her followers. “I made the decision to keep as much as my life as personal as possible while continuing the reality show. I'm 16 and still wanna be a kid sometimes.”
While Kylie and big sister Kendall have certainly many reaped some of the benefits of their family’s famous name, like their multiple endorsement deals and Kylie’s own admission that she’s only required to attend a few hours of home tutoring a day, the young star said that she often feels as though people don’t realize that there’s more to her than what the cameras capture.
“There's a part of me you don't see so don't go judging people if u haven't walked a mile in their shoes,” wrote Kylie.
Do you think it’s healthy for Kylie to have lived her whole life in the public eye?
