Kendall Jenner is asked about the concept of youth in the new WSJ. Magazine, and the reality TV star and model reveals she thinks her adolescence disappeared very quickly. “I feel like I grew up too fast a long time ago,” she tells the outlet. “Having older siblings, you grow up around adults, so you mature more quickly. I saw my sisters and parents working every day, so I was pretty much brought up to be a workaholic.”

Jenner goes on to say, “But I just turned 19 a couple weeks ago, and I’m scared to be 20 — it’s the first step out of being a teenager. My sister Khloé always says to me and my younger sister, Kylie: You have your whole life to be an adult but only so long to be a kid.”

“And we get it. In the right situations, I try to be as immature as I can sometimes — react to things as if I were 12. You can’t take things too seriously,” explains Jenner. “I just laugh thinking about my dad being a teenager, partying. It’s the funniest thing. And it makes me think — what am I going to be like when I’m 65?” That’s an interesting question. What do you think about Jenner’s comments about age?
