award season 2009

Here’s Why You Need To Feel Bad For Kylie Jenner:

2007>Kylie Jenner (then 9 years old) began appearing in reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians after the rise of older sister Kim’s sex tape.

+In the early seasons, Kylie & sister Kendall appeared briefly, often having short segments on what the two were up to

+Since KUWTK is filmed under multiple camera set ups in the home Kylie was exposed to cameras, fame, and the public very young. In the early seasons of KUWTK, Kylie is often shown trailing behind her older sisters.

Season 1 Episode 1> Kylie is seen dancing on a stripper pole that  Kim bought as gift for someone else.

+You can tell by Kylie’s body language she wants to impress Kim (who is watching and laughing) it seems childlike and innocent.

+Because Kim’s sex tape had surfaced, the family always had a light hearted way of discussing sex - dialogue between them was always open minded.

Season 1 KUWTK (2007)>Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe do a Girls Gone Wild shoot, Kim gets cover of Playboy, Khloe gets DUI, and nude photos of Kourtney leak.

+Kylie was exposed to these things. I doubt she knew the consequences because for the family, money and fame always fixed it, it seemed ok.

+KUWTK always portrayed the family to be very close. Kylie admired her sisters and wanted to emulate them. Kim was seen as a sex symbol.

2007-08>Kylie appears at age appropriate events (MTV, charity campaigns, kids choice awards)

Season 3 KUWTK(2009)>Kris & Bruce’s marriage start showing signs of stress. Bruce gets plastic surgery. Kylie starts experimenting with makeup.

(Above is a picture of Kylie posing from an old Myspace profile)

Season 4, Episode 8: KUWTK (2010)>Kylie starts showing signs of jealousy over Kendall.

+In this episode, then Bruce Jenner says to Kylie “your time will come.” In a very dismissive way. I imagine she felt very inadequate.

Season 5 KUWTK(2010)>Kim receives Botox & openly discusses it with her family. Furthering showing then 13 year old Kylie that procedure is an option.

2011>Tyga performs at Kendall’s birthday bash, probably when he first met Kylie (who was on stage)

+The body language in the video shows Kylie appearing almost star struck over Tyga while sister Kendall just enjoys the moment.

Season 6 KUWTK (2011)>Kylie, then 14, takes shift from “tween” to teen. Scott trying to become her manager.

2011-14>As Kylie gets older the focus becomes more on her personal brand, and is pictured alone more than ever.

In 2013> She was caught stealing Kim’s clothes

2013>Kylie’s clothing line with sister Kendall launches in Pacsun stores worldwide

September 2014>Kris and then Bruce Jenner announce their divorce.

2014>Then Bruce starts making changing to appearance and has gotten rid of his Adam’s apple. The public scrutinizes.

+Kylie’s parents are now divorced and Dad undergoing a series of changes. Thus giving the public another thing to speculate. Imagine what it felt like for Kylie to watch her parents be ripped to shreds by hateful onlookers + gossip blogs.

November 2014>Kylie is asked directly about her lips for the first time ever during a red carpet event.

April 2015>Caitlyn (once Bruce) Jenner comes out as transgender. Kylie and Caitlyn receive praise…but scrutiny too.

>At this point Kylie is undergoing a lot of emotional trauma. Public relationship with older boyfriend, parents split, dad comes out as transgender. As a means to tuck away all of her distress, Kylie probably started focusing solely on her personal appearance. It is easy to get lost in yourself and become obsessed with your appearance, but this often times means someone is hiding emotional suffering.

>The more Kylie’s personal life became unraveled, the more her face changed.

May 2015>Clips for an upcoming KUWTK are released. Kylie admits to having lip fillers.

>Following the release of the clips, plastic surgeons from all over weigh in on what other work Kylie may have received:

August 2015(now)>Kylie will be turning 18 on August 10th, (2 days away from this original blog post date) Whose to say where her transformation will go.

After reading this thread I hope I portrayed Kylie’s life in a relatable way. She is still so very young. I hope to change the narrative.
