ICYMI, the blonde beauty was NOT a fan of the momma-of-two’s headline-making, SKINtillating snap, and took to Twitter to voice her disappointment.
Well now, the 19-year-old is ready to open up about all the digital drama. She told Elle all about her online response to the steamy shot, saying:
“All I’ll say is that I think a lot of things can be misconstrued in a lot of ways. And I think if people open their minds more, and they try to look deeper into something than just something that is a very big, hot, fiery button to hide behind…I think if people looked into something bigger that I was trying to speak upon, they wouldn’t be so easy to fire back silly, miscellaneous things.”
In her tweets, the gorgeous gal wrote that she believes Kim’s pic sent the wrong message to her young, faithful, female followers.
So, the teen offered up this advice instead:
“Depict yourself adequately as what you want to be seen as. Don’t front, don’t put something out there that you feel isn’t realistic and doesn’t portray who you are. Just be yourself, be you, and don’t be afraid to speak your mind.”
And even though the actress herself has appeared nearly nude on Nylon magazine, she defended controversial covers because she believes photoshoots have an artistic element that selfies don’t, explaining:
“I mean, I think that’s also a lot more based on artwork, so that’s a little bit of a different conversation. Like, if I’m talking to a photographer, I’m talking to a stylist, I’m talking to a makeup artist, we’re kind of creating and collaborating and making something that is artwork and is special and is different. Yeah, it’s representing myself, but it’s also notrepresenting myself, because it’s a character piece. So, I think that is a big difference. On social media, like on Instagram and stuff that I post, and the way that I view myself, and portray myself on there, that’s definitely a much more personalized take. I’m not collaborating with people to make that, it’s my own social media platform in which I’m├óΓé¼ΓÇ£it’s not a character, it’s just me.”
She makes an interesting point, there. But what do U think about all this, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments!
