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.

I don't follow this whole family much at all, but I do remember seeing plenty of swimsuit spreads of other girls my age in SEVENTEEN magazine as a teenager.

That sounds nice, but I still think Kris should really take a look at herself as a mother. In my eyes there is no excuse in the world why a mother should have allowed her daughter to take shots in a bikini with her breasts showing like that at 14. Completely and utterly inappropriate and wrong in my opinion. Not that Kendall isn't absolutely gorgeous, she is, but shots like those should have been put off until she reached a more appropriate age. I am shocked Bruce went along with that. Nothing Kris does surprises me, she has $$ signs in her eyes.
