Kendall Jenner fans may have been shocked when the 21-year-old deleted Instagram, but she was more surprised to find out how much everyone cared. “It’s so crazy to me that it even became huge news like that,” she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday.
“I also took my Twitter off my phone. I didn’t delete my Twitter entirely, but I took the app off my phone, so I had no idea anyone was even talking about it. I honestly didn’t even think anyone would care,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said, clearly unaware of the extent of her mammoth reach.
So what prompted the social media blackout? The catalyst isn’t as dramatic as you might think. “I just wanted to detox. I felt like, I just wanted a little bit of a break. I’m always on it. I would wake up in the morning and I would look at it first thing. I would go to bed and it was the last thing I would look at. I felt a little too dependent on it so I kind of wanted to take a minute to detox,” Jenner said.
We have to admit Kendall makes a pretty valid point. Her other siblings are still using the app, and sharing photos of their new niece, Dream Kardashian. “She’s so beautiful,” Jenner said. “She looks just like Robert Kardashian Sr. I mean, it’s crazy. And [Rob] is so happy. It makes me so happy I could literally cry.”
Here’s to hoping Kendall’s social media detox is rewarding.
