Kendall Jenner may be 20 years old, but she is certainly mature way beyond her years.
In case you’ve been living under a rock, let us give you the backstory: In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, supermodel Stephanie Seymour called Kendall and her model bestie Gigi Hadid “bitches of the moment,” and said they did not deserve to be called supermodels. So uncalled for!
But Kendall is taking the higher road and has responded in the classiest way possible. She took to her website to write a post titled “My Thoughts on the ‘Supermodel’ Debate.” Not to sound dramatic, but it was brilliant. Read below:
Gigi sent me the most recent rant and I’m disappointed. If you’re going to tell us not to be in ”your moment,’ then don’t be in mine! This moment is all about being supportive—NOT cyberbullying. But, if you choose to be a cyberbully, I’m going to stick up for myself. No one is trying to steal Stephanie Seymour’s thing, or trying to be her. I actually looked up to her. She has a daughter! I guarantee you that she didn’t imagine someone so publicly shaming her daughter when she made those comments about us being ‘bitches of the moment.’
Being a ‘supermodel’ is a relative term. If people want to call Gigi and I supermodels now, it doesn’t take anything away from supermodels of the past. Obviously, I have so much respect for those women, but right now, we’re the models of this time. Significant? Maybe. Hardworking? For sure….When I’m older, I’m going to be so nice to anyone who’s trying to do the same thing as me. There are other supermodels who give me tips and build up my confidence, sending me notes after a spread comes out, saying, ‘You’re killing it.’ That’s the classy way to behave and I fully intend on being a positive influence on anyone younger than me, my entire life.
