TORONTO, Nov. 3, 2015 /CNW/ - ELLE Canada landed the Canadian exclusive interview with Kylie Jenner for its December cover. Jenner—who has more than 40 million Instagram followers and 12 million twitter followers—participated in a "live cover," which was shot in L.A. by Max Abadian. The behind-the-scenes images of the shoot went viral in minutes, and, within four days, the coverage had generated more than 13 million impressions. Jenner fans were also invited to vote on the cover look. They opted for the daring La Bourjoisie beaded bodysuit over the sequined Zuhair Murad jumper.
During the interview, the social-media sensation and reality-TV star talked candidly about her lips, how her relationship with her dad, Caitlyn (formerly Bruce), has changed over the past year and what it's like to be at the centre of so much love and hate.
"I get bullied all the time over the Internet, and I feel like the bigger I get, the more love and hate comes along with it," she told features editor Aliyah Shamsher. "But there are so many other people who get bullied way worse than me, and I wanted to share their stories."
Jenner launched a social-media anti-bullying campaign in September under the hashtag #IAmMoreThan. For ELLE Canada, Jenner created an exclusive video in which she answers fan questions about bullying. It is posted at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ug20T7AU-po.
"We are so appreciative of Kylie taking the time to share her experiences and her advice with our readers," said editor-in-chief Noreen Flanagan. "She's in a unique position to reach millions of young people and to offer them an opportunity to be heard."
