Kylie Jenner, ‘Digital Royalty’ + Feminist, Graces Cover of ‘Glamour U.K.’
It's 2016, but fashion magazines are still just discovering that social media is a thing. The latest glossy to stumble upon the powers of Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat? Glamour UK, whose June 2016 cover star is none other than "digital royalty" Kylie Jenner.
The youngest of the Kardashian Klan, King Kylie — who has also been featured on the covers of countless other publications, including Cosmopolitan, Interview, and Paper magazine — opened up about her social strategy, as well as her desire to eventually focus solely on her growing makeup venture.
"I only show people what I want them to see," Kylie shared. "And in time, I think I'll just slowly start moving behind the scenes. The show 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."
As for those rumors about her chasing a music career, the model/reality TV star doesn't seem to be on that particular path after all, as she told the magazine, "I definitely won't want to be doing anything else that would make me more public." And what would be more "public" than pop/R&B/whatever-her-music-might-sound-like stardom?
In addition to discovering social media, the magazine also noted that feminism is also a thing that exists, and asked Kylie if she identifies as part of the feminist movement — because other than "How would you describe your style?", it's one of the few questions the media asks women these days.
"I do consider myself a feminist," the lipgloss-shilling entrepreneur revealed. "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."
