Throughout the seemingly never-ending coronavirus lockdown (hey, at least we’ll all be in the habit of keeping masks in or glove compartment by the time the second wave hits!), celebrities have been forced to get creative in their efforts to keep themselves and their fans entertained.
And perhaps no famous figure has risen to the occasion quite like Kylie Jenner.
You want wine mom jokes about drinking yourself to sleep?
Kylie’s got you covered.
Perhaps a young billionaire twerking in a bikini is more your speed.
Well, Kyliizzle can deliver that content, as well.
Despite the fact that she’s got a toddler to care for and a brand-new $36 million mansion to decorate (there are worse problems to have, obvi), Kylie has been putting work on the ‘Gram and delivering fresh posts for her followers on a daily basis.
But as we enter the fourth month of the ‘Rona Times, it must be getting tough to come up with new ideas.
Perhaps that’s why Kylie decided to switch things up with a classic Kar-Jenner clan tactic this week.
Yes, like all of her sisters before her, Kylie decided to go blonde and topless.
Have we seen Kylie topless before? Many times.
And the 22-year-old has also gone blonde on several occasions.
But the blonde/topless combo?
Well, we’ve been poring through our archives of racy Kylie pics (there are worse jobs to have, obvi), and we think she might be treading new ground here.
Kylie captioned the first pic simply, “last night.”
Then she posted a second with a caption reading, “too good had to do a double take.”
Clearly, Kylie was feeling herself in the wee hours of Tuesday night, and judging by the comments, we think it’s safe to say her fans agree with her glowing self-assessment.
“Blonde Ky is my fav!!!” wrote one influencer.
“Barbie needs to take notes,” another commenter chimed in.
We doubt that Kylie is suffering from any serious self-esteem issues, but even so, the boost she got from last night’s pics must have been a nice form of quarantine self-care.
After all, looking after yourself in these uncertain times involves more than simply avoiding the virus.
Sometimes, you also have to remind yourself that you’re still fly.
In advance of Father’s Day, Kylie and Kendall Jenner showered their dad, Caitlyn Jenner, with Father’s Day praise.
On the day itself, Kylie had more to say — including warm words for Travis Scott.
Most people Kylie Jenner’s age either spend Father’s Day making token gestures to their dads, or have no fathers to speak of.
Kylie has a great relationship with her father, Caitlyn Jenner.
She is also a mom herself, which means that there will always be another important father in her life — her baby daddy.
On Sunday, she took to Instagram to hype up Travis Scott for Father’s Day, even though he is her ex.
“Happy father’s day @travisscott,” Kylie gushes on her Instagram Stories.
She praised him as “the best daddy to our daughter.”
Kylie included a photo of Travis with their daughter, Stormi.
Stormi turned two in February. She is 28 months old.
While Kylie was paying tribute to the man who knocked her up, Travis himself was spending time being a father.
He and Stormi had a day full of fun and adventures together, some of which he chronicled in his own Instagram Stories.
At nearly two-and-a-half, Stormi is old enough to be forming early memories.
But even if she does not remember yesterday, the valuable emotional bonding between father and daughter will contribute to a lifetime of love.
“I’m slowly but surely starting to accept the fact that storm is a daddy’s girl,” Kylie has previously acknowledged.
“But whatever.” she declared at the time, “we went half on greatness!”
Kylie described Stormi as “the most beautiful, smart, loving and funny little baby, the best gift.”
“Ok i’m crying,” she confessed. “Love you forever!”
Travis and Kylie are not currently believed to be dating.
That said, back in April, Kylie paid tribute to Travis on his birthday.
Because of how she gushed about him as a man and a father, she once again stirred rumors that they are back together.
Realistically, they will face those rumors until they fully move on with new significant others … and likely, even after.
Travis was not the only father in Kylie’s life to whom she paid tribute.
She also gave a shoutout to Caitlyn Jenner for Father’s Day.
“Happy dads day,” Kylie posted on her Instagram.
Succinctly, she gushed: “love you.”
As we first reported years ago, Cait has told her children that they can always call her “dad,” because she will always be their father.
Some trans folks keep the titles that they have had, others change them.
That is a personal choice for Caitlyn to make, and she made it, and her children are honoring her wishes.
Kylie and her siblings love Cait for who she is. Besides, Cait wouldn’t want to rob Kris of her Mother’s Day spotlight.
“My dad has always been an inspiration to me,” Kylie gushed last week.
She praised Caitlyn’s accomplishments “from winning the gold medal at the Olympics to getting her pilot’s license.”
“However,” Kylie raved, “watching her live out her true self has been the most inspiring of them all.”
Very well said. Cait has been inspirational to many people.
Lots of celebs have been posting more than usual during the coronavirus lockdown.
But no one has been bringing their A-game to social media quite like Kylie Jenner.
The mother of one has been delivering the goods to her 181 million followers just about every day since the pandemic began.
And Kylizzle’s not just posing for the same pic over and over.
Nor is she serving up endless thirst traps.
No, she’s keeping it fresh.
Kylie is demonstrating the creativity that helped make her the world’s youngest billionaire.
(We’ll set aside the conversation about whether or not Kylie is actually a billionaire for now.)
Kylie’s been delivering wine mom jokes about drinking herself to sleep.
She’s been twerking in a bikini just to silence the haters who insisted that she lacks twerking ability.
(Some might say that she played right into their hands — some trolls are just trying to goad you into giving them specific content)
In short, she’s been delivering grade-A content.
All the while, being careful not to complain too much about being quarantined in a $36 million mansion.
As we enter the fourth month of this situation, you might think that Kylie would be starting to run out of ideas.
But amazingly, you would be wrong.
Along with daughter Stormi, Kylie covers the new issue of Vogue Czechoslovakia.
That may not seem like it has much to do with the content she’s been posting on Instagram, right?
You might be surprised.
But really, the magazine feature forced Kylie to bust out some of her most ingenious quarantine work to date.
Credit where credit is due, right?
“i loved creating this intimate shoot for @vogueczechoslovakia,” Kylie captioned her latest photo set.
“We hung sheets in my backyard to try and make a backdrop,” she detailed.
“And,” Kylie added, they “shot it all on my iphone.”
We guess that’s just the sort of thing you can accomplish with enough time and creativity.
And a live-in nanny.
Oh, and a European fashion magazine paying you six figures to walk around your driveway in designer dresses …
Okay, so Kylie’s quarantine experience is a little different from most people’s.
But she still shares one activity in common with us peasants — wasting time.
You see, what we have here is a series of photos in which Kylie Jenner is basically pants-less.
And you’re telling us she needed to bother with the draped sheets and the mood lighting on top of that?
We’re pretty sure they could have just plastered “Kylie Jenner: No Pants!” on the cover.
Mark our words: every copy in Prague would’ve been snatched up by lunch.
Inside the mag, you could’ve had Kylie with no pants on.
We could have seen Kylie eating shredded cheese over the sink, Kylie watching 90 Day Fiance, Kylie having an existential crisis …
The whole thing would’ve required zero effort, it would’ve upped her relatability quotient immeasurably.
But hey, at least this gave Kylie a way to kill a couple hours.
There are worst ways to spend one’s time.
Even counting your billions must get old eventually.
Kylie and Kendall are wishing Cait a happy father’s day in a public, timely way.
Cait sat down with her two most famous children, Kendall and Kylie, five years after revealing herself to the world on her famous Vogue cover.
Speaking to People, Caitlyn reveals that she told each of her kids, one by one, coming out as trans to them ahead of her public transition.
“Honestly, if one of them had had a problem, I wouldn’t have done it,” Cait reveals.
That is a bittersweet statement.
In honor of Father’s Day, Cait’s name’s five year anniversary of being public, and the month of Pride, Kendall is reflecting upon it all.
“When my dad came out as transgender, our relationship grew,” Kendall says.
She recalls: “She could finally be honest with me.”
“We could talk about deep emotions she was feeling through that time,” Kendall reflects.
“Growing up,” Kendall characterizes, “my dad was not usually one to talk about her feelings.”
“So,” she acknowledges, “that was a big step for us.”
Kendall shares that she has been something of a “daddy’s girl my whole life” and that now, “our relationship grows every day.”
Years ago, Cait told her fans that no matter her gender or pronouns, she would always be proud to be called “dad” by her kids.
“I used to watch old Olympic videos of my dad,” Kendall recalls.
“And,” she notes, she used to “wish I could be a part of those spectacular moments with her.”
“There are so many stories she tells about her life,” Kendall acknowledges.
“And,” she adds, “I love to just sit there and listen.”
“She has lived so many amazing lives in one lifetime,” Kendall remarks.
“My favorite thing to learn from my dad,” she reveals, “is about my dad.”
Kendall praises Caitlyn for being “Inspiring then and inspiring now.”
It’s true that the journey of Cait’s life has taken her far.
“Because of my dad’s bravery,” Kendall praises, “I’ve learned to love what I love and not be ashamed of it.”
“She’s been my role model since before I can even remember,” she raves.
Kendall shares that she appreciates Cait “from sports growing up to now with her wisdom.”
“She’s so brave,” she gushes, “and I aspire to be as brave as her one day.”
Kylie also spoke about how her father has wowed her over the years.
“My dad has always been an inspiration to me,” the makeup mogul praises.
She notes that Cait has succeeded “from winning the gold medal at the Olympics to getting her pilot’s license.”
“However,” Kylie affirms, “watching her live out her true self has been the most inspiring of them all.”
Caitlyn’s Olympic feats were indicative of her dedication and athleticism.
Her business success a combination of hard work, taking risks, and a lot of luck.
But coming out after spending decades as a closeted transgender celebrity, unveiling her identity to the world as a world-famous senior citizen?
“She’s our hero,” both daughters wholeheartedly agree.
Caitlyn also recalls what it was like to receive her new driver’s license in 2015, the first one to ever bear her real name.
“It was so emotional,” she recalls. “There I was. Caitlyn Marie Jenner.”
“But then, I wondered,” Cait says, “did Bruce deserve to be thrown away like this? He did a lot of good things. He raised 10 kids. But I wasn’t turning around.”
Notably, while Caitlyn is welcome to use her deadname as she chooses, the rest of us would never do so to a trans person.
Earlier, we mentioned Caitlyn’s statement about how she would have remained closeted and living a lie if any of her kids had objected.
We called it bittersweet.
This is because, on the one hand, it’s horrifying to imagine her being prepared to live out the rest of her days as someone whom she is not.
On the positive side, however, it is endearing that she did not have to, that all of her children stood behind her.
June is the month of Pride, and Caitlyn is certainly one of the most visible members of the LGBTQ+ community on the planet.
But though she has now spent five years as possibly the most well-known trans woman in the world, her reception has been muted within the community.
Cait has expressed some poor choices when it comes to politics, to put it bluntly. It seems that her wealth has removed her from many of the trans community’s struggles.
However, she is learning and growing as a person. Despite her age, hiding who she was for so long means that Cait is still fairly new to the world
