Kylie Jenner offers her mature insight on finances and feminism in the latest issue of GLAMOUR.
Stripping back her familiar, racy image, the 18-year-old fronts the June issue with barely any make-up and her famous Kardashian curves noticeably covered up.
Inside, the beauty entrepreneur makes a departure from the selfie-obsessed teenager whose every fashion move is followed by millions as she declares herself a feminist, and insists she doesn’t depend on anyone.
Asked soceity’s burning question about whether she considers herself a feminist, Kylie defiantly answers: ‘I mean, of course I do, but I don’t think I stand up in public that way a lot. Not that I don’t feel things in my personal life, but yes: I do consider myself a feminist.
‘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.’
Kylie is often better known as the girlfriend of 26-year-old rap artist Tyga and the youngest of momager Kris Jenner’s world-famous clan of businesswomen and TV stars, but the teenager insists she lives on her own money.
On managing her finances, Kylie explained: ‘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. We all are as a family.’
She is the brains behind instant beauty hit, the Kylie Lip Kit, and lays claim to one of the most-followed Instagram accounts in the world, which has 59.4M people subscribed to updates.
But Kylie admits that she’s not going to be updating it forever, and revealed a desire to eventually take a step back.
She said: ‘I only show people what I want them to see. And in time, I think I’ll just slowly start moving behind the scenes.
has to end eventually, and I’m not going to leave until we’re done with it, but by 20 I want to have the whole of my cosmetics line out because that’s my primary focus. I definitely won’t want to be doing anything else that would make me more public.’
