Say what you will about Kylie and Kendall Jenner – there’s no denying that for better or worse, the youngest Kardashian-Jenner siblings have had a tremendous amount of impact on an entire generation of young people.
So it’s not surprising that for the second year in a row, Kylie and Kendall have landed on Time’s list of the most influential teens, alongside such social media nobodies as Malala Yousafzai and Malia Obama, who, like, totally don’t even have Instagram pages.
“Everything I do, I always start these huge trends," Kylie told Time. "I just want to inspire my fans to be whoever they want to be, because that’s what I’ve always done.”
It helps if whoever you want to be is someone with gigantic lips. That’s an easy ideal to achieve to when you’ve got Kylie’s cash.
In their profile of Kylie’s older sis, the magazine talked about how Kendall has the most-liked pic on Instagram, with an astonishing 3.1 million people tapping the heart on a single photo.
We’re not sure how that makes her influential exactly, but you know how obsessed teens are with popularity.
It remains to be seen what sort of lasting impact Kylie and Kendall will have on our culture or what they’ll do with their tremendous influence, but if the alarming success of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has taught us anything, it’s that it no longer matters what you say, so long as a large enough audience likes to hear you say it.
