For better or for worse, Kylie Jenner is one of the most famous people in the world. At just 21 years old, the reality star could easily retire due to the amount of fame and fortune she has accrued. She is a star on the never-ending, hit reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, which just wrapped its sixteenth season. But that’s just the beginning of Jenner’s immense fame.
Jenner’s impressive net worth
Branching out from her famous siblings, Jenner made a name for herself in the beauty industry. The 21-year-old mom is the owner of Kylie Cosmetics, which has made her the youngest “self-made” billionaire ever. And with a whopping 140 million followers on Instagram alone, Jenner is never short on loyal and supportive fans. For all intents and purposes, Jenner is as famous as they come, which is great for her because she feels she was made for this lifestyle.
Growing up famous
Jenner has, quite literally, grown up in the public eye. For the past 11 years, her every move has been scrutinized and analyzed by the public. The constant lack of privacy has been so pervasive that Jenner doesn’t even remember a time where she wasn’t famous. “Honestly, I don’t remember a time when I did have privacy because we started our show when I was 9 years old. I feel like I just grew up in it and so I figured out a way of living that is comfortable for me” the billionaire confessed in a recent interview with Arabian Harper’s Bazaar.
Naturally, things aren’t always rainbows and butterflies when you’re as famous as Jenner is, but she seems to feel that the pros of fame far outweigh the cons. “Of course, there are times when you feel like your privacy is invaded. But I feel like I’ve learned how to pull back when I need to. I love my fans and we have such a strong relationship. I do love sharing and inspiring and bringing people into my life. I feel like I was definitely made to do what I do” the Kylie Cosmetics owner said.
How Jenner handles stress
But even though the makeup guru feels that she was built for this crazy lifestyle, she admits that she definitely still struggles with the pressures of fame. “There are definitely moments when I get stressed out. I’ll take the week off and spend more time with Stormi (her 1-year-old daughter), or I like to go on trips when I’m feeling overwhelmed. I just have my little message in life. I feel that we all do, even if you’re not famous. As human beings, we get stressed out and we all have our little way of coming back together” the 21-year-old admitted.
Despite her lavish lifestyle and ever-increasing fame, Jenner seems to have similar coping mechanisms to many people who have never experienced the amount of attention she attracts. The sentiments that Jenner expresses once again bring home that old adage: celebrities…they’re just like us!
