The first full trailer for Kylie Jenner’s upcoming reality series, Life of Kylie, has arrived! In the sneak peek, the reality star opens up about her “two sides” and the pressure she feels to maintain her public persona.
“When you grow up on camera, everybody feels like they know you, but they don’t,” the 19-year-old cosmetics queen says in the promo clip released on Monday. “I feel like a lot of people have misconceptions of who I am. There are two sides to me -- there’s an image that I feel constantly pressured to keep up with and who I really am around my friends.”
Cue clips of Jenner trying to pick her nose while hanging with her pals, then surprising a fan by taking him to his prom.
The young entrepreneur, who has been filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians since she was just nine, adds that her celebrity lifestyle is not something she can imagine doing forever.
“I do feel pressure to not let anybody down,” says Jenner, who shared a preview of the trailer on her social media on Thursday. “Nobody has a perfect life. I am not totally innocent because I am keeping up this lifestyle. I can’t do it forever.”
“I’m excited to see what the hell Kylie does all day long!” Khloe admitted to E! News at the NBCUniversal 2017 Upfronts in New York on Monday. “It’s funny because [Kim and I] are with each other all the time, so we know what we’re doing, but with Kylie I’m just going to be a viewer like everybody else.”
“This is something she really wanted to do to show a different side of her,” Kim added. “She hasn’t been that open in our show. In certain aspects like her family life [she has,] but not really her friends' lives, so you’re definitely going to see her friends, her dating, what she does on a daily basis and how hard she really works.”
“When I did that Lip Kit collab with her, I had no idea how hard it is to do all the things she does,” Kim continued. “You’re going to see so much of that on her show and it’s exciting for us to watch because we don’t hang out with her all the time with her friends, so it’ll be new for us.”
Both Kim and Khloe were looking fabulous at the publicity event, with Khloe rocking a Versace gown and Yeezy shoes “because we have to represent in the family,” while Kim was sporting an all-in-one pants-and-boots creation by Balenciaga.
