Excerpts from Kylie Jenner’s VMagazine Cover

In 2015, Kylie Jenner overtook her siblings as the most magnetic member of American pop culture’s First Family, the Kardashian-Jenners.

Establishing herself as an independent force from her sisters, the 20-year-old reinvented herself as the most badass, amorphous, untouchable character in the K-initialed dynasty. She now commands 96 million Instagram followers.

 “I always post sexy pictures, but have never really gone nude.”

Kylie Jenner has become synonymous with wigs she says, “gives me a different confidence.”

On Kylie’s right hip, in red ink, is a tattoo with Merriam-Webster’s phonetic spelling of the word “Sanity.” She got it at Bang Bang in New York in December 2015, when she was just 18. (Momager Kris wouldn’t allow it previously.)“There was a time when I got [that tattoo] that I felt a little bit like I was going insane. Or, I was going to,” she hastens to add, careful not to draw any parallels to the trajectory of a star like Winehouse. “I thought about it for a while. I just like the word ‘Sanity’—just stay sane through it all. A lot of young stars who grow up in the spotlight have a really hard time. I didn’t want that to be me.”

In one video posted to her Instagram story, Jenner bites an apple and does karaoke to Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good” while her BFF, the model Jordyn Woods, dances around in the background. Jenner really likes Winehouse’s music. She danced to a lot of her songs while attending Sierra Canyon School. She’s watched most of director Asif Kapadia’s Oscar-winning documentary Amyon a plane, but the flight ended before the movie could finish. “It was good, what I saw,” she says, calling Winehouse’s story “pretty heartbreaking.” It’s probably for the best she didn’t catch the ending, when Winehouse gets booed off stage at a festival in Serbia, when she becomes a victim of her own fame, when she joins the 27 Club.

“I needed it at the time,” she says of the tat, thoughts possibly drifting to things in 2015 that might have spelled breakdown for most other people: admitting to having her lips augmented, the viral “Kylie Jenner Challenge,” 

she hasn’t given retirement any serious thought, but it’s “not necessarily just a farm and a garden” that she wants. “I just want a lot of property. That seems like the best life ever: horses and a farm and a garden.”

“It would be a good feeling to just live a normal life for a second.” “I don’t know what it’s like to not be in the spotlight,” “That’s normal to me
