Kendall Jenner is done dancing around the criticism. Kendall Jenner ballet shoot !
The 20-year-old model took to her blog Saturday to strike back after a number of dance industry professionals said she had no business donning a ballerina’s tutu for a shoot with Vogue España last month.
The daughter of Caitlyn and Kris Jenner even hinted at the nonstop antics of her siblings – Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian, as well as Kylie Jenner – as she defended herself from a troupe of critics in ballet slippers.
‘It’s so funny that people are getting pregnant and married – or having crazy drama – but my drama is ballerinas being upset at me!’ the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star said on her blog.
She added, ‘I just show up to do my job! … it’s obviously not going to stop me from working hard and being me.’
The Vogue covergirl stressed that she ‘would never purposely try to offend anyone,’ and has the utmost ‘respect for women who do their jobs really well.
The gorgeous brunette wondered why anyone cared about her brush with ballet, as she said she was confused ‘how people can get that upset when there are so many important things going on in the world.’
The statuesque stunner, who’s walked runways for designers including Balmain, Chanel and Elie Saab, made clear she did not campaign for her shoot for to be ballet-themed, but she wasn’t going to turn down the gig.
‘With my Vogue Spain shoot, I didn’t even know I was going to be a ballerina until I went into hair and makeup,’ Kendall said. ‘I never said I knew ballet and I didn’t practice beforehand.’
Among the tweets from dancers included one who wondered, ‘Is there anything more tragic than Kendall Jenner pretending to be a ballet dancer for Vogue Spain.’
Another dancer wrote that ‘Kendall Jenner’s “ballet” shoot has me so heated. Stay in your lane Kendall Jenner, ballet requires more talent than you will ever have.’
Yet another dance professional said: ‘I am exhausted yet cannot sleep because I’m having NIGHTMARES about Kendall Jenner trying to do ballet and I’m so OFFENDED it hurts.’ Kendall Jenner ballet shoot !
The searing criticism wasn’t confined strictly to the dance community, as even a fellow reality star – albeit with a dance background – called out Kendall and her mother over the shoot.
