Kylie Jenner was recently featured as one of the fabulous faces in Cardi B’s latest music video titled “Wap”, but apparently not everyone was thrilled to see the fashion mogul in the music video. The 22-year-old Kardashian/Jenner celebrity has one of the largest followings on social media and one of the most lucrative modeling careers on Instagram

Case and point, Kylie was listed as a billionaire by Forbes in 2019. (Though she didn’t get that net worth in 2020 over some legalities)

'My Job'

Kylie was interviewed by the Bazaar where she shared how she never envisioned that her brand would ever get so big.

“I didn’t think it was possible,” she said. “I didn’t think that this could really be my job. I always loved makeup, though. I wanted to watch tutorials. I would play with my own makeup or my mom’s. I’ve always loved makeup, and I was obsessed with lipstick.”

Her sister Kris Jenner shared how she admires her sister’s work ethic and how she has used her passion for beauty and fashion to propel the Kylie brand.

Unclear Reasons

It is still unclear exactly why so many have signed a petition to remove Kylie from Cardi B’s latest music video. Some claim she is too obsessed with her modeling and not relevant, while others claim seeing a white girl in Cardi’s video didn’t show black pride… Which has some wondering what happened to having things “racially diverse”?

That being said, it is highly unlikely Cardi will remove Kylie’s part in the video since they are very good friends with each other.

'Even Before The Show'

Kylie attributes much of her success to being exposed to fame early in life. Her dad constantly was in the limelight and she felt the effects of that. It helped propel her brand and helped her acclimate to being a figure of attention.

“Even before the show, my dad always had an audience, so I was always around that energy,” she says. “I don’t know. I think it’s a blessing, the way it happened so early, because I don’t really know what it would be like to not be famous or in the limelight.”

'I Always Knew'

Although some may not acknowledge Kylie’s influence on social media, that presence is always there. A perfect example of this is when she criticized Twitter for its redesign in 2018… the company lost $1.3 billion in stock value.

“I always knew my family was a big deal, but me, solo, probably around when my pop-ups started. Or when I started dyeing my hair blue and cut my hair off, and then everyone started dyeing their hair blue and cutting it off. And I was like, ‘Whoa.’ I realized what an influence I had. I was probably like 16.”
