Kylie Jenner Says Intriguingly Boring Stuff & Bares Her Butt in Interview

"My worst fear is waking up and finding something bad about me on Ihe internet" -- Kylie Jenner

Liam Mathews

Writer Chris Wallace talked to Kylie Jenner for December's Interview magazine on the day she and her sisters filmed the instantly infamous Kris Jenner birthday video. She gave honest answers to his questions and still remained inscrutable. It's a very interesting interview because of how good Kylie Jenner is at being boring. There's something fascinating about how inarticulate she is about her objectively interesting life.

What's evident about Jenner from this interview is that she's not really any different than any 18-year-old girl accustomed to getting whatever she wants (and there are a lot of those), but due to circumstance she happens to be one of the richest and most famous ones. She describes herself as being "obsessed" with various things, which in teen-speak means "really likes." She says that she's "flashier" on social media than she is in real life. She doesn't have much perspective, but she's honest (she says she has no plans to go to college because she doesn't need to, which is true). She means it when she talks about how she suffers from chronic anxiety and the emotional toll spending her entire adolescence in the public eye has taken.

"I have, like, a problem," she says. "I wake up every morning at, like, seven or eight because I think that there's a bad story about me, and I have to check. My worst fear is waking up and finding something bad about me on the Internet." So every day her worst fear is confirmed. It's not a meaningful problem like "my worst fear is getting sick," but it happens constantly and it hurts her. Like it would anyone else.

Kylie Jenner is totally normal for someone in her totally abnormal position. She's a paradox. She might change the world, or she might contribute to its downfall. We'll see.

Anyway, here's a picture of her butt:
