Life Of Kylie Is Not Bad At All, It’s Actually Pretty Good
There’s more to the youngest Kardashian/Jenner than just thick lips
We’re not hardcore Kardashians fans (though we are low-key obsessing on KKW’s fashion), but we know enough about them as their entire lives have been documented on camera since the show began 10 years ago. This time, the youngest Kardashian/Jenner Kylie got her own show and TBH, we had our doubts. What else could they possibly show in Life of Kylie that we haven’t seen in KUTWK? But accidentally seeing the show proved us wrong. While contrived storylines and antics still exist, it’s this truth (amen Haley Nahman of Manrepeller) that we can’t ignore: “Kylie Jenner is trapped in the lifestyle of an A-list celebrity and she has no way out.”
Life seems perfect for the Kardashians especially for young Kylie; she’s young, and beautiful (pre- and post- enhancements), she makes millions of dollars and she has a growing beauty empire. What could possibly be wrong with her life?
Apparently, a lot that many of us can’t and never will understand.
In the two-episode premiere, Kylie finally gets the chance to attend prom but hers came in the form of a charity case. She agrees to be an “outcast” teen’s date because she, too, feels like an outsider in a lot of ways. “I still feel like an outcast...because I can’t relate to a lot of people so it’s like, in this little world I do feel like an outcast,” says Kylie. She may not be an outcast in the literal sense of the word, but she does seem to experience a similar kind of loneliness.
“I can’t say that was a very normal prom experience, but I can say that I’ve checked that off my bucket list. That I’ve been to prom,” she says in an almost flat tone.
And while we super can’t relate, Life of Kylie shows that Kylie is human, too, and that a shiny, glamorous life is always just shiny and glamorous on the outside. “I just don’t know who I’m doing it for,” she says about having to post on social media all the time to stay relevant.
But if there’s anything we can totally say “can relate” to is sometimes feeling lost and wanting to run away from it all. Maybe not from money or fame, but you know, #reallifeproblems.
