Kendall Jenner Talks Growing Up in the Spotlight, Being a Belieber and Bowing Down to Beyonce
By Desiree Murphy
Kendall Jenner is simply stunning -- inside and out!
The 20-year-old model, who is the cover girl for the June/July issue of Harper's Bazaar, gets candid with the magazine on life in the spotlight, jamming out to Justin Bieber and bowing down to Beyoncé.
Dressed in a white Balmain bodysuit, Jenner, who was photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, glows for the shoot, but admits that growing up in the public eye hasn't always been easy for her and her famous family.
"We were brought up in this abnormal world, if that's what you want to call it," the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star reveals. "I feel like a lot of people say that kids who grow up in that kind of world go crazy."
"But it has everything to do with how your parents raise you," she continues, giving a shout-out to her parents, Kris and Caitlyn Jenner. "I was raised so normally, or as normally as I could have been."
Before her crew gained fame on their popular reality series, Jenner once dreamed of a much less glamorous career.
"I've always loved animals," she says. "I rode horses for 10 and a half years, so I thought I was going to be a professional horseback rider and then a vet. I used to play these vet video games."
It's hard to imagine Jenner ever trading in her runway stilettos for a pair of riding boots now, but one thing's for sure -- she's not the most open member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
She says that due to having cameras constantly follow her around, and people always trying to get her attention, she tries to keep private moments to herself.
"I'm not super open to new people. I have a small group of people I trust," she confesses. "I'm very intuitive, so I'm good at feeling out how people are, like if they have bad intentions. Sometimes I'm very closed off, which annoys me, but I think it's for the best."
Something she's never closed off to, however, is music. Jenner tells the glossy that she's a fan of many artists, including pal Justin Bieber.
"I went to Justin Bieber's concert the other night. Of course I have the fever!" she exclaims. "He's a really good friend of the family's, so we all went to support him. Kanye went two nights in a row. He's a huge fan -- I was shocked. He was dancing around the whole night, having so much fun."
Jenner has hung out with Justin plenty of times, so meeting up with him after his shows is nothing out of the ordinary. But rubbing elbows with Beyoncé? That's a much different story.
"I am 100% a huge fan of Beyoncé. If I see her, I will faint," she says, proving that just like us, celebs get starstruck, too. "I've met her before. I just get really nervous and quiet -- I just shut up and bow down."
Jenner isn't the only one who has found herself fangirling over the 34-year-old "Formation" singer. Earlier this month, Adele took to Instagram to praise Queen Bey on her latest visual album, Lemonade.
