Kim Kardashian Wants to Switch Bodies With Kendall Jenner
The interview, conducted by model and guest editor Cara Delevingne, touches base on everything from Kim’s infamous sex tape to how she feels about nudity. (Um, it’s pretty clear she’s okay with taking her clothes off.)
Here are seven things you should take away from the candid one-on-one:
1. Kim is envious of little sister Kendall Jenner’s body.
“You always want what you can’t have,” she says. “I’d love to swap bodies with Kendall for just a week, just to look from that little bit higher up and fit into everything perfectly.”
2. Kim learned to drive at the age of 14. Her father, Robert Kardashian, taught her in hopes that she’d be Kourtney Kardashian’s designated driver.
“Kourtney had just turned 16 and he told me: ‘You never know if she and her friends are going to get drunk, so you have to go with her and hang out with her, and you always have my permission to drive them home if any of them are drinking.’ … So I became the official driver.”
“Maybe that’s how some people heard about me but I didn’t launch my career off of that. That was 12 years ago, no 13 years ago now, so I just try to move on and put it in the past because I think that everyone in life does things they’re not proud of but you can’t sit and dwell on them forever.”
4. She also says her fame has provided
plebs like us people with jobs.
“We’ve had more episodes than I Love Lucy!” she says of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. “And I’m proud that we give so many people jobs. Like, our lighting guy handing me a key chain last season and said, ‘I just want to thank you — I’ve worked for you guys for eight seasons and you helped me buy a house.’ So I get a little bit frustrated at people not understanding. Like when they ask, ‘What do you do?’ I mean, what an uneducated question! And I just want to help change the perception that being on a reality show is such a negative thing.”
“Even better I like nudity,” she says when Delevingne mentions that Love editor-in-chief Katie Grand often uses naked models. “Kanye always says, ‘Dress sexier.’ He’s always encouraging.”
6. Kanye West hates glitter.
“I was obsessed with glitter, rhinestone heels and the kind of clothes that I now laugh at, and he threw them all out. I said, ‘Well I’m going to save them for my daughter one day.’ And he said, ‘Well if it’s going to our daughter, she never going to wear those!'”
