Kendall Jenner's big news was met with an even bigger side-eye over the weekend.
The model's famous manager mother, Kris Jenner, made everyone all nervous on Saturday (January 5) when she teased a campaign on Instagram for what she swore up and down would be Kendall's most courageous confession yet.
"I’m so proud of my darling @KendallJenner for being so brave and vulnerable. Seeing you share your most raw story in order to make a positive impact for so many people and help foster a positive dialogue is a testament to the incredible woman you’ve become," Kris captioned a video post, reminding followers to "Make sure to watch Kendall’s Twitter on Sunday night to find out what I’m talking about and be prepared to be moved."
Kris made matters more urgent by pairing the post with hashtags like "#bethechange," "#shareyourstory" and "#getready."
So what's the "raw," untold story of Kendall Jenner, you ask? She has acne — just like us — and oh yeah, she's also the new face of Proactiv. Go figures.
Kendall announced her endorsement news on Twitter with a video of her expressing her struggles with skincare. "I remember going online after and reading all the horrible things people were saying about me, and my skin," the 22-year-old recalls in the clip above.
Given the runway star's posh lifestyle and rep as a spotless beauty queen in the media, many fans didn't know how to receive her admission — some even called it "the most kris jenner thing ever." What do you think?
