What does Kendall Jenner have in common with Rihanna and Madonna???

She’s dropped her last name and is going by “Kendall” only as she tries to book more modeling jobs!

It’s actually not unusual for a lot of models to only go by their first names, but Kendall’s reasoning behind the decision is so that people will be less likely to associate her with her famous family!

Kim Kardashian explained:

“She went and auditioned, and she just goes by the name of Kendall, [so] that people won’t just think that she gets any handoffs.”

Er, we think she means handouts not “handoffs.” Anyway!

Kim went on to tout her sister’s work ethic, saying:

“She works her butt off. She just goes to casting after casting. I’m so proud of her that [in] her first Fashion Week, she [was] able to achieve all the shows she was able to walk in. She’s living her dream and it’s so inspiring to watch her.”

Keep it up, Kendall, we have a feeling you’ll go far!

After all, the 18-year-old already walked three MAJOR shows during fashion week!
