Kendall Jenner Would Have Been a Fun Childhood Best Friend

Sure, Kendall Jenner is all grown up and semi-topless in this month’s Interview. The accompanying Q&A by Christopher Wallace confirms the suspicion that if my 7-year-old self had met 7-year-old Jenner’s, we would have been the best of childhood friends. First, because she thinks she might have been a horse in another life (ponies!), but also because of her fantastic sense of imagination and early proclivity for deception:

WALLACE: I bet. Do you ever lie?

JENNER: You know what? No. Because when I was little, I would always lie about the stupidest things. In kindergarten or first grade, I would tell people I had tigers living in my attic and a room full of gold. 

WALLACE: And you don’t? 

JENNER: No, but I would tell people that all the time. I would tell people I was from Hawaii, but I had a Southern accent. I was the biggest liar for no reason, and then as I got older, I thought, “Why am I lying to everybody?” I would hear other people lie and be like, “You sound so stupid.” So then I would just change my lies. The only person I lie to is my little sister, when I steal her clothes. 

WALLACE: Who was your first crush?

JENNER: My first crush was this kid in kindergarten who told me he had tigers in his attic as well.

Of course, the real dealbreaker would be her feelings on Tamagotchis — but sadly, she wasn’t born yet.
