Kylie Jenner Being A Wheelchair-bound Dominatrix Isn’t The Most Startling Thing In Her ‘Interview’ Feature

There’s no real explanation as to why the world is so obsessed with the Kardashians and Jenners. Truth of the matter is, the youngest of the clan, 18-year-old King Kylie is most definitely a superstar with her every move making headlines every other day. This time, her recent cover spread for Interview Magazine has gone internet-mad with mixed responses from the public – obviously.

Shot by Steven Klein, the NSFW shoot features Jenner as a wheelchair-bound dominatrix in full S&M regalia, including buttless latex chaps.

It’s risqué, provocative and eye-brow raising… especially using a wheelchair as a fashion prop. No doubt, this has provoked outrage with a string of internet commentariats slamming Jenner for trivializing and glorifying the handicapped who are without a choice, bound to a wheelchair.

Wheelchairs, orthopaedic props and crutches have been used as fashion props before Kylie was even born. The story it tells? Perhaps “handicapped by fame/other people’s opinions of her” or a commentary on how Klein and Jenner, despite knowing the ensuing negative reactions, went ahead with using a wheelchair as a prop anyway.

It’s standard for Steven Klein to always be pushing the borders of what is P.C and making fashion into art. Clearly, it was designed for headlines and to aggravate the public.

She’s plastic and glamorous but she’s crippled by her fame.

In her interview with Chris Wallace, Kylie exposes that her internet persona is fake.

“There is absolutely a side of me that people don’t know. I’m not myself on Snapchat or Instagram. That’s totally not me. I’m way flashier on Instagram and Snapchat, because I feel like that’s what people want to see and that’s what I’ve always done, so I’m not going to stop. People want to see my cars and my purses. People love fashion. But that’s so not me.”

“I would probably just never dress up. I would never wear makeup, because I honestly hate wearing makeup. Lately, I’ve just been so over it. I feel like I’m way too young to wear such heavy makeup all the time. It’s just bad for your skin, but I’m always doing photo shoots or red carpets and events, so I just obviously want to look good.”

“If I could do whatever I wanted, I would have a successful makeup line, and I would want to hopefully start more businesses, and just be, like, a businesswoman. And then, hopefully, I’ll go off the map.”

“When I do big crowds, I get nervous. Like, I’m doing a talk show this month, and I am so nervous, I have nightmares about it every night.”

“I wake up every morning with the worst anxiety. I don’t know why.”

“I have, like, a problem. [laughs] I wake up every morning at, like, seven or eight because I think that there’s a bad story about me, and I have to check. My worst fear is waking up and finding something bad about me on the internet.”
