Los Angeles : Reality TV personality Kylie Jenner says she considers herself to be a “feminist”, adding that she doesn’t depend on a man or anybody else in her life.
The 18-year-old shared her views on feminism in an interview Glamour magazine. She covers the June issue of the magazine, reports dailymail.co.uk.
Asked about society’s burning question about whether she considers herself a feminist, Kylie said: “I mean, of course I do, but I don’t think I stand up in public that way a lot. Not that I don’t feel things in my personal life, but yes: I do consider myself a feminist.”
She added: “I’m a young woman, for one thing, and I don’t depend on a man or anybody else. I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I’m an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own.”
Kylie is often better known as the girlfriend of 26-year-old rapper Tyga and the youngest of Kris Jenner’s famous clan of businesswomen and TV stars, but the teenager insists she lives on her own money.
Kylie explained: “I haven’t had a dollar of my mum’s money for five years. Ever since I started earning my own money, I’ve paid for everything: all my cars, houses, clothes, everything. I like to know exactly what’s going on and I’m actually quite careful with what I spend. We all are as a family.”
