Kylie Jenner opens up about her experiences being bullied, says how fans should treat the stars, and revealed what her true talent is, in a new interview.
The 18-year-old, named to TIME‘s 30 most influential teens of the year list, explained that people don’t really know her based on what they see on her platforms such as a “reality TV show, and an app and Snapchat.
“Nobody knows who I am except family and my close friends,” the social media superstar told the publication, adding that “people have to be sensitive to — I hate using the word ‘celebrities’ — people in the spotlight.”
The daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner stressed that “there’s so much more [to her] than what you see on the cover of a magazine.”
She said that her past experiences being bullied inspired her movement against abuse, “#IAmMoreThan.”
“Almost my whole life, since I was nine, since I’ve been in the spotlight, that comes with so much bullying and attacking … it has still affected me a lot,” she explained.
With the hash-tagged campaign, she said that she took “a different approach … to use [her] platform and just kind of bring awareness to it.”
