Kendall Jenner on Paparazzi and Taking a Bad Photo: "Every Picture That's Taken of Me Is Judged by Everyone"

Being photographed everywhere you go = not ideal.

Kendall Jenner is no stranger to having her picture taken, but the 20-year-old model wants us to know that not every moment is picture perfect (nor does she want every candid second of her day on record). Taking to her app (opens in new tab), she mused: 

Living in the public eye can both build and test your confidence at the same time. Everything I do, everything I post and every picture that's taken of me is judged by everyone. Getting papped all the time and having my picture posted everywhere is not always fun.

And not every picture is going to be a good one. I make a weird face or turn the wrong way and, of course, that's the one they'll use! Those can be hard to look at, and they don't always make me feel the best.

Of course, the positive feedback I get from people makes me feel SO good and my work itself can be a huge confidence boost. But we're always our own worst critic. It's a strange situation, for sure, but I try to remind myself not to be overly judgmental.

Just another reminder that we're all humans with insecurities, though to be fair, we'd probably take her "bad" photos (opens in new tab) over ours any day.
