Kylie Jenner Stars On The Latest Cover of Allure And Talks About ‘Projected Image’
Kylie Jenner stars on the cover of Allure magazine’s August issue. The reality star and beauty guru makes it clear that that what we see on social media; snapchat and instagram is not her real personality. Read more below.
“People think that since we have a reality TV show and I show so much of my life that they know who I am. But on Snapchat I show people what I think they want to see,” she says. If you keep up with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s Snapchat, you will often see her broadcasting images of her luxury cars, cosmetics glam room and ofcourse her friends and family. “That’s not me. It’s a projected image. A brand. I’m not a different person. I just don’t show all of me.” As for why Kylie is presenting a “brand” instead of her genuine self, she further shares, “I usually don’t show my true personality to the world, because when you open yourself up so much, there’s more room for people to say things about you.” The 18-year-old star has said before that she wishes she could go to places without ever being recognized, which is something she obviously still feels to this day. Even though she’s content with her life at present, she desires more privacy—and knows she’ll get it one day. “I know I don’t want to be famous forever. There’s gonna be a time where I feel comfortable, I’m at a good place in my life, and I just stop,” she says.
“Honestly, if I didn’t have my family in my life, and I was going through all of this myself, I don’t know what I would do.” “I’m a special case,” she admits. “I can’t remember what it’s like not to be famous. So I’m able to appreciate what true happiness is all about. A new car, that’s not real happiness. That lasts a month. That’s short-term happiness.” So what’s real happiness? Happiness, she explains, is “being with your friends.” We couldn’t agree more.
