Know me? (No). Know me? (No).
…Wherefore art thou know me? (No).
Not denying thy family but refusing thy name.
Is thou art a Jenner?
Yes, but any other name than “Kendall” wouldn’t be as sweet.
In Hollywood, the #teamhusbandwife moniker (like “Brangelina”) or names like JLo (over Jennifer Lopez) , just recently: “JLaw” (over Jennifer Lawerence)……or being referred to on a first-name basis is something that kinda ‘happens’ and is bestowed upon you.
Often times, a moniker of being referred to by first name only is kind of a ‘given’ to the celeb via the media or fans. But that doesn’t necessarily mean a notable can’t step right up to the drawing board and erase their last name themselves [then put us all on notice that going forward-it’s first name basis only].
Kendall Jenner did just that.
It wasn’t the lesson learned that if it was done on purpose [it wasn’t such a good idea] back in May this year when at the Billboard Awards, she elect to come off as a “dumb brunette” by struggling to read off the teleprompter-then proceed to yell: “Guys I’m the worst reader,”—that afterwards…caused her to reflect on how the “blonde” moment could potentially backfire later [when it’s time to be taken seriously for future career endeavors].
Noooooo it wasn’t a sudden attack of family-reflection and association just a month or two ago (when singer-actress Adrienne Bailon went public with her new boyfriend) + opened up about reasons why she left Rob Kardashian: Namely, one of them having to disassociate herself with the Kardashian name…that caused Kendall to reflect on how being rich, free, famous, frivolous, and a socialite for life could potentially backfire later [when it’s time to be taken seriously for future career endeavors].
Well the long-bodice, long-limbed, raven-haired beauty just turned 18 this past November and although she has gotten a few major modeling gigs, she’s found that being associated with the Kardashian brand name (despite her last name being “Jenner”), does more harm than good (for what it is she is trying to do with her life-opposite her sisters Kim, and Khloe).
The ¼ of the sisters of the reality television show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” (KUWTK) a.k.a Kendall Jenner now wishes to be known as just Kendall-please and thank you.
Kendall even went so far as to delete her last name from the Society Management’s homepage and too, from her bio as listed on the company’s website.
Earlier this year, in an interview with Love magazine, she expressed [about the Kardashian ‘curse’] some things that her sister Kylie Jenner has experienced-as a result of being “born into” the Kardashian experience [whether she wanted to be apart of the brand or not]: “People think that this…success just came to me, but it didn’t. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn’t take me seriously as a model. I went on castings and some people weren’t feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn’t recognize me. I was like, ‘Thank you. Please don’t recognize me.’ ”
I say: Go Kendall .
She. Is. Gorge.
She’s got this one…(and she’s also got this mapped out and planned).
If she can remove her last name…then I say: Get out of Kendall’s way…
