Kendall Jenner covers the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, opening up to the mag about being bullied for her weight and her famous sisters.

The 17-year-old model tells the magazine, “I’m constantly criticized for being too skinny,” revealing, “I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen.” Jenner adds, “What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat. It’s not a nice feeling.”

As for her big sisters, the reality star shares, “I go to them for different things. Khloe is like my second mom, so whenever my little sister [Kylie] and I are fighting or we’re fighting with our parents, we call Khloe.” Jenner notes, “Kourtney is very realistic with things. She will tell you the cold, hard truth, even if it will make you cry, so whatever you’re dealing with, if you want to talk to her, she’ll be very realistic. “Kim is supersmart and really tech-savvy, too,” says the star, who adds, “She’s been through a lot, so we can go to Kim with anything and she’ll have literally the best advice.”

Jenner also speaks out against rumors that momager Kris dictates her career entirely. She tells the mag, “I’ve always had a say in what I do,” explaining that her mom does “push” her, but adds, “I’ve always, always had a say and ultimately it’s my decision.”
