Ugh. Kylie Jenner’s degrading-posing-as-artistic-and-risque photo shoot has her mother’s approval, which depresses me to no end.
During SiriusXM’s Conversations with Maria Menounos on Tuesday, Kris Jenner admitted she was a huge fan of Kylie’s depressingly backward Paper photo shoot, which makes me have little to no faith in the human race:
“The pictures are insane. This is so Kylie, by the way,” Kris, 60, told Menounos. “Steven Klein shot this, he’s so iconic and amazing. And I love that my girls get to work with the most fantastic photographers in the world. It’s such a great experience and it’s truly remarkable. But I think that when they’re doing this, you know, it’s just such a private photo shoot, and she really gets to work with him and express herself. And this is what she loves. I think it’s great. I think they’re beautiful and artistic.”
“I think she could have covered her bum a little bit more right there,” Kris continued with a laugh. “But I saw the way the hair and the latex and the all that … it’s just so cool. It’s almost like she’s doll-like. And she’s wild, and this is how she expresses herself. So I think it’s great.”
There’s almost nothing I hate more than exalting objectivity and degrading women under the guise of it being “sexy,” “expressive” and “artistic.” Oh wait, except someone’s MOTHER being okay with it. This really makes me sick, y’all. If this is what she’s doing when she’s 18, what’s 28 going to look like? 38? 68?
