11 Reasons Why Kylie Jenner Was Actually the Worst Part of 2015
Lately, I’ve been spending most of my time trying to ignore Kylie Jenner. And it isn’t going very well.
You see, I’ve never been super into talking about or paying attention to things that I don’t really like. My general opinion, for the most part, is that if you don’t like something, you should just ignore it until it goes away or withers up and dies (which is how Bernard, my succulent plant, met his bitter end, but that is a story for another day.) In this vein, I realize that, in writing any article that has “Kylie Jenner” in the title, I am making myself at least vaguely complicit in the overexposure and general hysteria that I find so irksome when it comes to Kylie Jenner.
I don’t know Kylie Jenner personally and, as such, I don’t actually think that Kylie Jenner, as an individual person herself, can or should really be considered the worst part of 2015. The Kylie Jenner™ empire, though, and the collective fervor and frenzy that ensues anytime she does literally anything — plus the general acquiescence to some pretty problematic ish she has pulled? — that’s a pretty rough patch for 2015.
Basically? My problem isn’t with Kylie, per se. I think she’s a teenage girl who often does dumb things — as most teenagers do — but has the misfortune of never having the camera’s gaze off of her, plus an ingrained inability to know when she should ask the cameras to go away. Because of this, I don’t mean this to be a Kylie Jenner drag, but rather a drag of the overall obsession over Kylie as a whole. Check it out:
