Never mind the Kardashians. It’s time to start keeping up with Kendall Jenner!
“It was great,” Kendall told E!’s Michael Yo about nabbing the cover of American Cheerleader magazine. “I love it! It’s exciting. It’s my first cover!”
In the June issue of the mag (out May 3), Kendall plays it both smiley and serious for the camera in a casual white top, short shorts and black and tan heels. In another shot, she strikes a pose in her own Sierra Canyon school cheerleading uniform.
So now that she’s found her place in the fashion world, is Kendall hoping to soon land her own reality-TV series with sister Kylie?
“We’d love to have our own little show or something, but it’s nothing we’ve planned yet,” she tells the mag.
In fact, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cameras can sometimes be too much for Kendall and Kylie.
“I just hide in my room,” she says of finding an escape during filming. “That’s why you don’t see me and Kylie on the show as much, because we love being with our family, but being on camera isn’t really something we like to do. So we’ll stay in our rooms.”
So, today is a rather exciting day for the AC staff…we’re heading to LA to do photo shoots with Heather Morris (Brittany from “Glee”) and Kendall Jenner (younger sister of the Kardashians)! This trip has been in the works for over a month now and hasn’t been without its complications (shoot rescheduling, possible cancellations, not to mention that we’re heading out there mid-deadline!), but we couldn’t be more elated at the opportunity to hang out with, and interview, these amazing up-and-comers.
First off, as a HUGE “Glee” fan, I’ve loved the character of Brittany since day 1 (and not just because we share the same awesome name). Her one-liners kill me every time and I’m totally jealous of her sick dancing skills. And then, there’s the fact that she plays a cheerleader, was a cheerleader growing up and has the spirit of a cheerleader. I’ve only heard amazing things about Heather and truly can’t wait to see what the triple-threat is like in person.
Next, we’re totally psyched to have Kendall on-board for one of our future covers. As a “Keeping up with the Kardashians” fan, I’ve always enjoyed watching the second-to-youngest Jenner girl whenever she’s on the show. But the truth is, we may know a lot about Khloe, Kourtney and Kim, but when it comes to Kendall, she’s still a bit of a mystery. The one thing that is clear though, is that she’s obsessed with cheerleading! As a first-time cheerleader at her school in California, she’s all about keeping up the spirit, cheering from the sidelines and attending games. This will mark Kendall’s first-ever magazine cover and we’re honored to be the ones to showcase her remarkable talents.
We’ll be updating our Facebook account (facebook.com/AmericanCheerleader) and tweeting (twitter.com/cheerleadermag) all weekend long, so stay tuned for more on this exciting shoot!
