Because life is weird and nothing makes sense, it's suddenly Kardashian canon (sorry, Kanon) that Kylie Jenner is obsessed with butterflies. Not only does the internet think (opens in new tab) she named her daughter (opens in new tab) Stormi after the Butterfly Effect (AKA the chaos theory that a butterfly flapping its wings can create a storm), the insect has a special meaning to her and Travis Scott.

First, there's the necklace he gave her:

So basically, she likes butterflies. OR DOES SHE? In hilarious re-discovered footage from Life of Kylie, the beauty mogul is seen completely terrified when she enters some sort of sinister butterfly breeding ground at the zoo.

"It's kind of ironic because I'm terrified...terrified of butterflies. This is how I think of them: Cut the wings off and if you just look at their bodies, it's not that pretty."

God bless this clip for existing on the internet.
