Kylie Jenner‘s often compared to Kim Kardashian (well, they do share strikingly similar style and selfie attributes). But in a new interview, she’s wasted no time in explaining why she’s more popular than her big sister.
Remember when the 18-year-old’s app beat Kim’s to the top of the download charts when they were both released on the same day? Yeh, well Kylie wasn’t surprised.
‘Kim’s older, she has a different fanbase’, Kylie told TIME magazine after being named one of the top 100 most influential teens of the year.
‘The difference between our apps is [that] hers is very perfect. It’s simple, everything is black and white’, she said. Explaining that she thinks the appeal is that her app is more fun, she added:
‘I invite the cameras over and say, “Oh, hey, let’s just do this.” We do make-up tutorials and I’m laughing and talking. I know my fans are my age or younger than me, so, I just like to show my personality and show my fans my home and my dogs.
‘I get really personal. I’m on Snapchat, and I’m just like them at the end of the day. Kim’s more private. She has kids. It’s just different.’
Still, while the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recognises that she might be more popular than Kim in some ways, she still appreciates all her big sister has taught her.

‘She’s so dedicated, she’s so smart, she’s such a businesswoman, and she’s always doing something and thinking of new ideas’, Kylie gushed. ‘She has inspired me to have a great work ethic.’
So, just how has she become one of the world’s most influential teens in such a short amount of time? Well, Jenner says it’s all down to her look.
‘I know how influential I am over my fans and followers,’ she said. ‘I feel like everything I do, my hair color, my make-up, I always start these huge trends, and I don’t even realise what I’m capable of.
Of her critics, she added: ‘I didn’t care what people had to say; I didn’t even read any of that stuff. People might have been upset because we were next to, like, young girls who started schools and crazy things.
‘But we’re just different people! We’re influential in different ways, and that’s okay.’
