Kendall Jenner finds herself in a controversy yet again and she has her own self to blame this time around. The Kardashian clan member recently posed topless for the LOVE Magazine and discussed being picky about her modelling jobs.
She told the magazine, "Since the beginning, we've been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do, like, 30 shows a season or whatever the f—k those girls do. More power to 'em."
"I had a million jobs, not only catwalks but everything else. The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back," the 22-year-old told the magazine, according to their recent Instagram post.
The comment did not go down well with fellow models and they took no time to clap back at the Jenner sister. Several renowned models took to their social media accounts and slammed Kendall over her luxury to pick shows and projects.
“Since the beginning we’ve been super selective about what shows I would do. I was never one of those girls who would do like 30 shows a season or whatever the fuck those girls do. More power to ‘em. But I had a million jobs, not only catwalks but everything else. The whole combination was very overwhelming and I started to freak out a little bit and needed to take a step back,” says the 22-year-old, admitting that she “was on the verge of a mental breakdown.” #LOVE20 Photographer @alasdairmclellan Fashion Editor @kegrand Make up @ctilburymakeup Hair @jamesspecis Casting @bitton Interview #MurrayHealy
"This makes me so angry. So disrespectful to literally 99% of people in the industry — yes, they had to work their way up. Please get in touch with the real world!" Victoria's Secret model Jac Jagaciak wrote.
Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition model Vita Sidorkina reacted, "Maybe 'those girls' need to pay their bills that's why they are doing 30 shows? No words..."
Many other models who have shared the ramp with Jenner also went ahead and shared some insiders about her behaviour during the show. They claim:
However, her rep has addressed the backlash told Harper Bazaar that the statement is being taken out of context.
"It's not what she meant. The quote was taken out of context. Mid-thought she realized the number of shows some models walk a season is closer to 80. The point was that it's their path and 'the more power to them. She admires their hard work and dedication. It's an accomplishment."
