Kendall and Kylie Jenner opened up to Glamour Magazine about being raised in one of the most famous families in the world. The Jenner sisters talk reality TV, which of their sisters give them advice, which of the men in their lives give them boy advice and more. Glamour: Your family leads such a public life. Is that a good thing?
Kylie: Our family is closer because of the show. And when we are older, we’ll have the memories on tape. If some of those moments hadn’t been filmed, I wouldn’t remember them!
Kendall: We appreciate everything that we have, but we don’t remember what it’s like to be normal kids who aren’t harassed by the paparazzi. I hate that. We’re underage girls. I don’t want to be followed by random men I don’t know. It can also be hard to deal with other kids who are jealous or mean. I can’t post a picture on Instagram without being criticized.
Kylie: No one really knows what we are like. People read about us on Twitter, but they don’t know what we do all day long. We don’t really have privacy, but we have an aspect that people don’t know about.
Glamour: What do you learn from each of your sisters (Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian-Odom)?
Kendall: If we’re fighting, we call Khloé. She’s our peacemaker. Kourtney keeps us down-to-earth.
Kylie: Kim teaches us how to deal with the spotlight.
Glamour: Between your brothers— Brody, Brandon, Burt, and Rob—and your sisters’ partners, Lamar, Scott, and Kanye, there are a lot of men in your lives. Are they protective?
Kylie: Rob checks on me at least three times a day, and Lamar wants to meet any guy we’re talking to. Just yesterday Scott was going over the kind of guy I should date.
Glamour: We have to ask: Do you ever thinkabout the fact that your last name isn’t Kardashian?
Kendall: We’re full-throttle Jenners! We don’t have any desire to be Kardashians.
Kylie: All that matters is that we’re a family.
These girls are so mature, aren’t they? It sounds like they have a great grasp on this crazy life of theirs!
