Kylie Jenner only needs to eat cereal to make a headline. In 2018, Kylie's social media admission to eating cereal with milk "for the first time" basically broke the internet. In any case, an updated "broken" after Stormi's arrival in February 2018.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians it may be, but one KarJenner is outshining them all. At 21 years old, Kylie Jenner is now the world's youngest billionaire, as per Forbes. The summer 2018 news that Kylie is worth $900 million has had an update. How everybody knows about it? It's called "keeping up with Kylie."
Taylor Swift has her squad. Ariana Grande and Jennifer Lopez post joint selfies. When it comes to Kylie though, the circle is super-tight. With her family as her besties (and Jordyn Woods kind of hanging in the balance), not everyone gets to rub shoulders with this girl.
While the Kardashians mix with super-exclusive A-Listers, not everybody of that caliber is a huge fan of Kylie. Ellen DeGeneres? Ariana Grande? Miley Cyrus? While there isn't full-blown beef on a Nicki Minaj level here, there are quite a number of celebs who just aren't fans.
There's also the total opposite. It's called Hollywood's elite ultra-meshing with the youngest KarJenner. They'll give their left arm to be invited to one of her parties. If they're lucky, they'll wind up on her social media. This girl's circle is exclusive. Donatella Versace designs Kylie's gowns (and Fendi custom-designs her strollers).
It's time for a closer look. Not everybody in the world's most exclusive zip code is a fan. Here are 11 celebs who totally keep up with Kylie (plus nine who can't stand her).
20 (Keeps Up): Jordyn Woods, Well, Kinda
Jordyn Woods basically shot to international fame overnight. The 2019 news that Jordyn is now part of the Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson drama is all anyone can talk about. The latest from Elle suggests that Kylie isn't too happy, though.
“She has been socializing more and trying to find a bigger circle of friends that she can be close with... After the Jordyn drama, she realized that relying on just one friend is not the best idea."
Quoting a source from Us Weekly, the magazine reports that Kylie is done with Jordyn. This girl came as Kylie's BFF from day one. While she "keeps up" with Kylie, we're not quite sure where things stand now.
19 (Can't Stand): Selena Gomez 'Flipped Out' Over Texts With The Biebs, #Unfollowed
Selena Gomez has her crowd. Apparently, it doesn't include Kylie Jenner, as Radar Online reports. "Kylie sent [unsuitable] pics of herself to Justin and that’s what started the fight. Selena saw the pictures on Justin’s phone and she freaked out and left immediately."
The media outlet reports that Selena "flipped out" and that there was a "huge fight." Google these two ladies and you won't see any IG selfies.
Selena is a powerhouse just like Kylie. While Selena seems to have gotten over her split from The Biebs, we're not seeing her "keeping up with Kylie." Radar Online further reports that Selena "wants nothing to do" with Kylie and unfollowed her on IG.
18 (Can't Stand): Kylie Minogue 'Blocked' Kylie's Attempt To Trademark Her Name
It's all about the power, In 2015, BBC reported that Kylie Jenner "attempted to register the mark "KYLIE" in the US for "advertising services" and "endorsement services." Another famous Kylie wasn't too happy about it.
"Hello... My Name is KYLIE #lightyears." #NotImpressed. Kylie Minogue "blocked" Kylie Jenner's attempt.
BBC quotes Kylie Minogue's tweet, where #lightyears seems to suggest that Minogue is "light years" ahead of Kylie. Minogue's lawyers "dismissed" Jenner as a "secondary reality television personality who had drawn criticism for her photographic exhibitionism and controversial posts on social media." Suffice to say, Kylie Minogue doesn't keep up with Kylie Jenner.
17 (Keeps Up): Travis Scott Is Finding A 'Fire Way' To Propose
Travis Scott isn't going to let his girl down. Despite rumors that have taken on a bit of a Tristan Thompson angle, there remains zero evidence that this guy has been a naughty boy. If anything, it's Travis's words to Rolling Stone that solidify his status.
"I just gotta sturdy up — I gotta propose in a fire way.” #Baby #AllOverHerIG #KeepsUp
Travis and Kylie have been an item since 2017. They're now a family, a brand, and stiff competition for Kim and Kanye as Hollywood's biggest power couple. This guy has an edgy vibe, but he'll keep up with his lady.
16 (Can't Stand): Ariana Grande Has Thrown Shade
Ariana Grande isn't one to make headlines for throwing shade. This girl still hasn't said a bad word about Pete Davidson. With those sweetheart vibes and cute looks, Ari basically makes you want to melt. Elle reports frostiness when it comes to Kylie, though.
"We have three days left, you don’t know what Travis could pull," Ariana replied when Nicki Minaj shaded Kylie by saying about Travis: "You got your girlfriend selling tour passes."
The magazine did note that it was likely "light-hearted," but the headline came with a #Shade. Come to think of it, you don't see Kylie Jenner popping up on Ari's IG, right?
15 (Keeps Up): Kim K Will Never Let A Sister Down
Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner were thick as thieves here at the 2018 Louis Vuitton Menswear Show in Paris. Of course, they were front-row. Kim and Kylie go back....well, their entire lives.
We've got Kylie Cosmetics X KKW Beauty. That's just the tip of the iceberg, though. While fans have wondered how Kim feels about her little sister's rise to fame, it's pretty obvious that Kim just wants the best for her.
In 2019, The Hollywood Gossip questioned whether Kim is "jealous" of Kylie's billionaire status. And that's what you get for reading gossip. That's all it is. Kim absolutely keeps up with Kylie.
14 (Can't Stand): Miley Cyrus Called The Kardashians 'Tacky'
2016 is the year that Miley's #Beef made headlines. While it wasn't directly with Kylie, it did see the entire Kardashian family shaded. As ET Online reports, Miley had sent out a social media comment suggesting that putting her body on show would get her more followers.
"Dear women, you ALL are acting tacky [...]! Why don't we overly (myself included) fortunate women come together and try to create and bring jobs to other women in desperate need of them so they can support not only THEMSELVES but their families!"
Suffice to say, the new wife to Liam Hemsworth isn't a giant fan of Kylie Jenner. Come to think of it, their personalities just don't mesh, right?
13 (Can't Stand): After Kylie's 'Diva' Demands, Ellen Probably Isn't A Fan
Ellen DeGeneres has hosted many a "diva." JLO and Mariah Carey have both sat on that couch. Kylie Jenner seems to steer well clear of the woman who gets everyone talking, although she did appear on The Ellen Show back in 2015. Cosmo reports:
"In addition to refusing to use Ellen's hair and makeup team, Kylie also needed to have two dressing rooms - one for her and one for her squad."
The magazine added: "Kylie also insisted that she have two VIP parking spots, because she did not want to walk from the parking structure to the studio, which is less than a block away." And we wonder why Ellen doesn't send out much love to Kylie.
12 (Keeps Up): When Kylie Cosmetics Shades Are Named After Your Songs, #TaylorSwift
Kylie picks the names for Kylie Cosmetics shades carefully. They're likely based on the advice from a savvy marketing team (and whatever it is they're doing, it's working). With $1 billion to her name, as per Forbes, Kylie is doing well for herself.
In 2019, Allure reported two new shades–yes, named after Taylor Swift songs. "Story of Us" and "Forever and Always" are both shades that happen to be song titles from Tay-Tay.
It's a pretty giant deal. While Taylor hangs more with Selena Gomez, there's no way she isn't at least keeping up with the fact that her songs are now Kylie Cosmetics shades.
11 (Keeps Up): Stormi Hangs Tight With Mom
Total no-brainer. Stormi has been on her mommy's arm since the day she was born. "Life-changing," Kylie said about her year as Season 15 of KUWTK came to an end.
Stormi is basically the most famous baby on the planet right now. She comes with matching outfits to Kylie's, she "pulls up" on tour, as per Travis Scott's Rolling Stone interview, and she definitely keeps up with her mom.
Stormi has been filmed clutching Lip Kits. She was in Kylie's Christmas Eve pics. There isn't a week that Stormi isn't on Kylie's IG– safe to say that this baby definitely keeps up.
10 (Keeps Up): DJ Khaled Gifted Stormi Her First Chanel Bag
You don't rock up to Stormi Webster's first birthday party without a statement gift. It would be like giving your best friend a bite of your pizza for their 21st birthday. DJ Khaled isn't the first person you'd imagine meshing with the KarJenners, but there's more to it.
When Khaled gifted Stormi her first Chanel purse, it made The Mirror's headlines. Kylie lives for designer bags. Her Snapchat purse closet tour of 2018 made Harper's Bazaar's headlines for being worth an estimated $1 million.
Khaled might hang with JLO and Cardi B in the studio, but this guy definitely rubs shoulders with Kylie.
9 (Can't Stand): Blac Chyna 'Sued' The Entire Kardashian Family, Also Dated Tyga, #Kylie'sEx
Come on– it's Blac Chyna. With a personality as brazen as her outfits, this model and influencer never comes without a statement headline. When AJC reported Chyna suing the Kardashians for "damaging her career," nobody was surprised.
"I understand that Kylie dating Tyga completely broke Chyna's heart. I feel for her in that situation. Was it uncomfortable for me when Kylie and Tyga started to date? Absolutely, because Chyna was my friend."
As Nicki Swift reports, Kim said the above about Kylie on KUWTK. Chyna has a kid with Tyga (Kylie's ex). Don't think that Blac Chyna is running around after Kylie.
8 (Keeps Up): Demi Lovato Openly Wears Kylie Cosmetics
"Demi Lovato Loves The Kylie Lip Kits & She's Not The Only Famous Fan." When Bustle ran an article on which celebs are giant fans of Kylie Cosmetics, we learned a lot. Christina Aguilera and Lily Aldridge are also fans.
"look what I just got... jealous?" Demi captioned a pic of herself wearing Kylie's merch. While you don't immediately picture Demi Lovato being a Jenner kind of girl, Demi does know her cosmetics.
For selfies, it's Demi and Tay-Tay. For a lip gloss that'll pack a punch though, this girl goes Kylie all the way. We're kind of wondering why Kylie Cosmetics doesn't hire Demi as their face.
7 (Can't Stand): Kailyn Lowry Said Kylie Was 'Glamorizing' Young Motherhood
Um, what? A Teen Mom cast member who was younger than Kylie when she became a mother is criticizing Kylie for having a baby at 20? Apparently so. As Hollywood Life reports, Kailyn Lowry comes with very strong views.
“I mean, I don’t want to hate her because obviously he’s so successful. But when you’re that young and you have that much money and you’re able to kind of have a nanny and have a lot of help and you still do all these things, I think that shows that it’s kind of glamorous to have a kid so young."
Apparently, Kailyn keeps up with Kylie's news, but don't count on her being a fan.
6 (Can't Stand): Kanye West Didn't Dig Kylie's PUMA Partnership, #StillFamilyThough
This one requires a bit of thinking. Obviously, Kanye West and Kylie Jenner are close. They're in close quarters and Kanye is married to Kim. Remember, though, that Kanye has strong links to Adidas via Yeezy. Kylie was briefly the face of PUMA.
"Kanye had Kylie walk in his first two (Adidas) shows, he really believed in her as part of his brand. I feel like this was a conflict of interest."
A KUWTK episode saw Kim say this, as we've previously reported. When there's a conflict of interest on a business level, it's a giant deal for this family. Kanye now seems to use Kylie to promote, but we haven't forgotten this beef.
5 (Keeps Up): Hailey Baldwin And The Friendship We Didn't Know Existed
Seriously, we were as taken aback as you were. Kylie Jenner doesn't "air kiss" just anybody in the street. While this pic dates back to 2015, Hailey Baldwin has popped up with a #KylieJenner since.
Hailey is, as Bustle reports, a giant fan of Kylie Cosmetics. The Biebs may have eased the way for this model's social status, but if she was BFF'ing with Kylie back in 2015, it isn't social climbing.
Hailey mostly keeps to herself. She's got her model friends (Kendall Jenner kind of works its way into this), but for this pic, it was totally all about Kylie.
4 (Can't Stand): Tyga 'Took Credit' For Kylie's Fame
Tyga was once a major part of Kylie's life. This 2016 relationship has mostly been forgotten with the arrival of Travis Scott, but Tyga clearly isn't done. In 2018, AOL reported Tyga featuring on Nicki Minaj's "Queen" Radio.
“You’ve got to look at the before and after. She always had a platform and she was always destined to be what she was going to be regardless, but when I stepped in, there was a lot of codes being taught. It was like: You could do this, you should start this, you should start doing your hair like this."
This was enough to make headlines of Tyga "taking credit" for Kylie's fame. This girl earned her cash herself. Tyga clearly can't stand his ex.
3 (Keeps Up): Donatella Versace And Those Custom Gowns
"You guys, I just got a text: Can I ask you what color Kylie's doing her hair? Donatella is asking." As E! News reported the story behind Kylie Jenner's 2017 Met Gala hair, we learned that the blonde came instructed by Donatella Versace herself.
Kylie's assistant said this as the hyped-up event approached (and Kylie was doing her final prep). Kylie is all about the designer brands. Chanel. Fendi. Prada. Dolce & Gabbana. Versace? Definitely.
Donatella has also appeared on Kim's IG. This fashion mogul hangs tight with the entire KarJenner clan. Kendall walks the runway for Versace. All the sisters have bags from Donatella's designs. Totally keeps up.
2 (Keeps Up): Three Guesses Where Chrissy Teigen Gets Her Lip Gear
Chrissy Teigen is way more pally with the Kardashians than you might think. While her following on IG is much lower than the KarJenners', this cookbook queen and celeb mom is invited over to the Kardashian's parties. It's a personal invite.
Chrissy Teigen is a huge fan of Lip Kits as per her social media. Elle also reports Chrissy's quotes to show some serious shoulder-rubbing.
“[I’ve known] Khloe [was pregnant] a while. I saw her at Kim’s baby shower. And I won’t say anything about Kylie.” Of course, this was interpreted as Chrissy "outing" Kylie's pregnancy, although Ellen DeGeneres did a pretty good job of that, too.
1 (Keeps Up): Kylie Jenner Would Kind Of Be Lost Without Kris
Kris Jenner runs the whole show. At least, she used to. The "momager" who gets a cut of her kids' business ventures is an executive producer on KUWTK, a business genius, and she adores her kids.
The minute a new Lip Kit drops, Kris is reposting the promo to IG. The minute another KarJenner baby is born, Kris is gushing all over IG with the pics to prove why.
If anyone is keeping up with Kylie, it's the mom who helped Kylie get to where she is. Kris has encouraged, advised, weighed in, and put her foot down in the biggest act of love ever. Of course, she keeps up with her billionaire daughter.
