Kendall Jenner is is gracing the cover and inside pages of the May GQ, accompanied by a profile written while she was working as a runway model at Paris Fashion Week. Writer Zach Baron marvels how Jenner is “one of the most followed, most photographed people in the world — and she still might only be the third- (fourth, sixth) most-famous person in her own family.”
“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” began when Jenner was just 10 years old, and she tells Baron that she doesn’t really remember what life was like before the show, nor can she really say whether she would have chosen a different life.
“Honestly, I can’t answer that question [about choosing differently]. I have no
idea. I was 10 years old when the TV show started. I don’t remember what
it was like before,” says Jenner. She also points out that while her family chose to be on reality TV, she and younger sister Kylie were placed in it. “We didn’t have a say. It was in our home. There was no way we couldn’t be on it.”
She adds that her relationship with the paparazzi is “really weird” because she understands that “it’s not normal” that they’re always around. But for her, “it is normal” because that’s all she’s ever known.
Talk turns to her father, Bruce, whose interview with Diane Sawyer is airing Friday, April 24 and may be about his transitioning genders.
“That’s not about me, so we can move on,” says the young Jenner, though she does get angry at all the “bulls***” stories” out there about her dad. When asked if she’s upset because the story is true or because it’s not true, she responds, “That is not for me to answer.”
