Last month, Kendall Jenner did a beautiful photoshoot for Vogue Spain where she was modeled as a ballerina and was shown dancing around in a studio wearing a tutu and ballet shoes. What started as a piece of art quickly turned into the target of an angry mob led by the dance community. Dancers from all over the world freaked out saying things like QUOTE – “I know Kendall Jenner’s ballet ad is the least egregious of the KarJenner cultural appropriations, but as a ballerina of 17 yrs, I’m pissed.” Another said, “Ballet dancers don’t train 40+ hours a week to be represented by Kendall Jenner and her fish feet… Also she is going to hurt herself.” Even famed dance teacher, Abby Lee Miller spoke out saying – “There are so many amazing dancers in the world … Kendall Jenner is not one of them!” Well today Kendall has finally spoken out on her blog to defend herself saying QUOTE – “With my Vogue Spain shoot, I didn’t even know I was going to be a ballerina until I went into hair and makeup. I never said I knew ballet and I didn’t practice beforehand. I just show up to do my job! I have so much respect for women who do their jobs really well and would never purposely try to offend anyone. It confuses me how people can get that upset when there are so many important things going on in the world. But, it’s obviously not going to stop me from working hard and being me.” She was doing her job people! No disrespect intended ballerinas.
