Apparently, if Kendall Jenner’s life were a reality show it would be … well, actually Kendall’s life is a reality show, and it’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
But if, for some reason, you were asked to name a second television series that whose title might accurately describe Kendall’s life these days, you might say … Naked and Afraid.
Belabored joke aside, what we’re trying to say is that Kendall covers the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and inside the mag, she exposes herself both literally by posing naked, and figuratively by opening up about her anxiety.
“I have such debilitating anxiety because of everything going on that I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks,” Kendall says in a surprisingly candid interview.
“Where do I even start? Everything is so horrible, it’s hard to name one thing,” the 22-year-old model added.
“I just think that the world needs so much love. I wish I had the power to send Cupid around the planet, as cheesy as that sounds.”
We know, we know … if you wanted to hear someone open up about their feelings of anxiety and offer cheesy, meme-speak solutions to all of the world’s problems, you would just scroll through Facebook.
You came here for the nudity, and the nudity is what you shall have.
Well, kind of…
Tehnically, Kendall’s not completely naked.
She’s wearing some sort of see-through raincoat, which is truly next-level flasher technology.
She says the photo is her way of paying tribute to Jennifer Beals in Flashdance, but at no point in the movie does Beals wear a transparent coat.
But we know better than to look gift pseudo-nudity in the mouth, so we’ll shut up now.
The juxtaposition of the anxiety comments and the risqué photo seems like a pretty good representation of where Jenner’s head is at these days.
Kendall’s modeling career is going better than anyone could’ve imagined, but that doesn’t mean she’s the perfect picture of confidence at all times.
In fact, earlier this week, Kendall opened up about her acne and other physical “imperfections” that make her feel insecure.
Fortunately, it doesn’t seem those insecurities will prevent Kendall from posing nude.
And for that, we’re eternally grateful.
