Kylie Jenner Gets Real About Whether Or Not She's A Feminist
Some of us love to criticize the nepotism that landed Kylie Jenner in the spotlight. It's cathartic. But consider, for a moment, how pointless a human being Kylie Jenner could have been.
By the time “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” became a hit, Kylie was still only a child, who might have one day chosen to just coast off that family money 'til death do her part.
At 18, however, the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner sister-and-one-brotherhood is using her given name to run a business that will allow her to provide for herself.
Kylie, who identifies as a feminist, said in Glamour's June issue,
I'm a young woman, for one thing, and I don't depend on a man or anybody else. I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I'm an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own.
There's no denying Ky lived a charmed life long before she struck out on her own with her line of Kylie Lip Kits and Kylie Cosmetics, though she actively sought independence far earlier than most.
I haven't had a dollar of my mum's money for five years… Ever since I started earning my own money, I've paid for everything: all my cars, houses, clothes, everything. I like to know exactly what's going on and I'm actually quite careful with what I spend.
Regardless of how it happened, Kylie Jenner is putting in work.
