Kendall Jenner on Controversial Bikini Shoot: It's All Good!

by at . Comments

As much as it pains us, we must give Kendall Jenner some credit.

The 14-year old half-sister of Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian responded this week to the controversy surrounding her recent photo shoot. Instead of getting on some high horse and telling the world to focus on more important issues (we're looking at you, Miley Cyrus), Kendall came across as mature and understanding of the situation.

"I am excited to be working as a model, doing what I love to do," she told People. "My entire family was very supportive, though my dad was a bit concerned at first, he knows that I am responsible enough that I wouldn’t do anything I wasn’t ready to do, or didn’t want to do.”

Kendall continued:

“Going into this shoot, it was never my intention to be provocative or too racy. It was a beach shoot, and I was wearing beachwear. I am happy with my age, and am not trying to rush into anything too soon. I look forward to all the milestones my teens have to offer - Sweet 16, turning 18, and so on.”

We still believe Jenner should wait a few years before donning so few items of clothing in a nationally-published shoot.

But at least she recognizes the reasons behind the scandal and acknowledges that she's barely even a teenager. Gotta give her - or the publicist behind this statement, really - props for handling the situation in such a straightforward manner.

EveryOnesGotOne - How dare you call this child a skank?! You don't even know her! Shame on you. She is modelling, it is a career. Many kids her age do it, there is nothing wrong with it.

If you really cared about what she was wearing you wouldn't have posted the picture.

Prude much? I don't see what's wrong with a 14-year-old modeling. This isn't pushing any limit nor is it even provocative. The only reason why it's seen this way is because she was scene by the public at a young age at one point.

Kendall Jenner doesn't get a fraction of the attention that Miley does. Maybe if she was hounded all the time, and criticized for being and doing what most other normal teenagers do then maybe she would be telling the world to focus on more important issues too! I remember when Miley always gave prim and proper answers too, but enough is enough, get off her back and maybe you will be surprised by how well she turns out. As far as Kendal and her little sister, I see nothing wrong with what they are doing so long as they and the people they work with keep it legal, and don't try to market them(selves) to older people. They are 14 and 12(almost 13) years old. This is a time when models start out. Lets just hope their parents keep track of them and their careers and keep them safe.

Maybe I'm missing something, but this isn't a big deal. She's a 14-year-old wearing a bikini. It's not that provocative. Walk into any Target durring warm seasons and you'll see teen models around this age doing pretty much the same thing. Whodathunk that a grainy, desaturated filter would put so many people's knickers in a pinch?

Ugh that statement is so planned and phony "I am looking forward to age milestones" Wtf? Someone get help for this girl, her mother is slightly losing her mind :) For example the statement she made on E! News about Kylie also pursuing modeling... "Got to keep these girls working" Uhm, they're ELEVEN AND FOURTEEN. Crazy woman! haha
