Kylie Jenner Says Fans Don't Know The Real Her, So What Is She Hiding?
Before the days of Catfish and Teen Mom, there was another reality series on MTV called Diary. The show gave a behind-the-scenes look at celebrities' lives and the slogan was, "You think you know, but you have no idea." That phrase is actually fitting for a current star. In an interview with Adweek, Kylie Jenner revealed fans don't know the real her — or at least, not all of her. During the Q&A, she talked about how while she's open on social media, she definitely keeps part of her life private. The 18-year-old said,
There's a really big part of my life that I don't share online, and I feel like people think that just because I have a reality TV show and I'm on Snapchat for probably 10 minutes altogether throughout the day, that they know my life. But I feel like everybody—every celebrity, at least—keeps a big part of their life super private. Like, I don't show a lot of my relationships or my ups and downs. I'd never have a fight with someone [on Instagram].
Admittedly, I find this quote slightly confusing, especially when added to another comment from the interview. She also said, "I only post on Instagram or Snapchat what I want people to see, you know? But there's a whole other side to me that people don't know." On the one hand, this makes sense. In some ways, it's all curated — she presents the side she wants people to see and it's only a snippet of her life. But considering she documents so much of her life, I can't help but wonder: Who is the "real Kylie"?
What fans know about the reality star is that she loves spending time with her friends (Jordyn Woods, Stassi, Harry Hudson, etc.) and that she's a big fan of makeup. She has a lip kit line that sells out almost instantly, anytime she uploads new products. Those aspects of her life seem genuine, as does her relationship with Tyga. The two are practically inseparable. I'd also like to think she's as close with her siblings as she appears on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. So what is this "big part" that she keeps underwraps? Honestly, I'm dying to know.
Taking Kylie's latest quotes into consideration, here's a round-up of remaining questions I have about the star.
1. Does She Ever Have Bad Days?
The answer to this would obviously be yes. She's a human-being like everybody else. Yet, she doesn't show the hard days on her social media accounts. I guess that's the side she doesn't reveal.
2. How Many Tries Does It Take For A Selfie?
She's like the rest of us, right? She can't get every selfie perfect on the first try, unless she's some kind of robot.
3. She & Her Friends Fight, Right?
If her Snapchat videos are any indication, it's all giggles and goofing around. There's no drama. But come on, that's not realistic. Especially since Kylie lives with two of her besties, Stassi and Jordyn. They're bound to have their blow-outs.
4. Does She Stress Over What To Wear?
Of course, she's super stylish. But that doesn't mean she can't be indecisive like everybody else. I'd like to think her fashion sense isn't as effortless as it looks, and she spends time pondering what to wear in her photos.
5. Doesn't She Enjoy Taking A Break?
From the looks of her Snapchat videos, she's constantly on the go. I'd like to think that she's like everybody else and has lazy nights in, where she marathons Netflix and orders a pizza. But that's not what fans see on her Instagram.
6. What Part Of Her Is She Hiding?
Maybe she has a hidden talent? Perhaps an annoying quirk. I'm just so intrigued by the fact that her quote is so vague and mysterious.
I'm guessing fans won't get to ever see the full Kylie Jenner. And in some ways, I do think it's good she keeps some stuff to herself. But at the same time, that doesn't mean I'm not super curious.
