Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott sat down with the folks at GQ for the mag’s cover story this month, and we got a little more insight into the pair’s interesting relationship, business acumen, and parenting skills.
And while the rapper comes across as very impatient and antsy — whether at a photo shoot, or playing a pickup basketball game — the new mom seriously sits back like the boss she is, running the show and her business empire all in a day’s work.
Let’s get down to it — some highlights from the interview (below), beginning with a fascinating and previously-untold wrinkle about how Stormi Webster‘s parents met, and how their relationship actually started:
“‘We don’t go on dates,’ Kylie tells me. In fact, their first date wasn’t really a date. They were at Coachellaâ€”neither can remember where, exactly, they first metâ€”and the whole thing just turned into a hang that went well. While she tells me about it, she begins to giggle about the story she told Travis that got his attention that night. The story wasn’t anything special, but that’s what made it real. How’d you meet your significant other? It starts normal, right?
But then their second date, by all definitions, was anything but normal. They caught the wave. Kylie Jennerâ€”and nearly 100 million followers of hersâ€”just abandoned her life in California and took off on tour with Travis Scott.
‘Coachella was one of the stops on his tour,’ she explains. ‘So he said, “I’m going back on tourâ€”what do we want to do about this?” Because we obviously liked each other.’
What do we want to do about this? That’s an early-2000s Matthew McConaughey big-screen-heartthrob line. Holy shit. ‘And I was like, “I guess I’m going with you [on tour],”‘ she said, to complete the scene.”
Whoa! That’s right — Kylie just up and joined Travis on tour, and the pair quite literally rode off into the sunset.
But was Kris Jenner mad? Or scared?! Or confused??
Kylie says no (below):
“She knows I beat to my own drum. My whole family knows that I do whatever I’m going to do. I’ve been that way my whole life. I don’t really answer to anybody. I live on my own, and so I just rode off into the sunset. We had a lot of downtime. It was organic. And we would just go to these random cities. We got to not be who we really were. Like, if we were in L.A., I feel like it would’ve been way different. Everything happened for a reason. We weren’t going out as ‘Kylie and Trav.’ We would just be in Cleveland, walking the street for hours. We would go on walks, and no one would bother us.”
Cleveland, you say? Hmmm… y’all see Tristan Thompson there with any girls???
Kidding! Only kidding…
Anyways, the feature here touches on the Kardashian Curse — you know, the alleged curse where men around the Kardashian girls (Lamar Odom, Scott Disick, the former Bruce Jenner, even brother Rob Kardashian) all tend to… fail… while the women succeed?
Travis isn’t buying that bullshit, as he tells the interviewer (below):
“I don’t even be looking at motherfuckers. I don’t be looking at shit. Kylie actually likes me for me. I’m on my own island. So hey, come over there to Astroworld. I’m not into all the other shit. I don’t get involved. I’m over here. Kylie is different.”
But Kylie has a different take on the curse (below):
“[Men] come, and can’t handle it.”
Finally, Kylie reveals that Travis, as high-energy and all-out as he may be, actually does have a sweet side, too.
She told the story of a particularly sweet birthday present he got her (below):
“So! When I landed in Houston to make up, heâ€”I always kept saying I really want a Stormi chain, so when I landed, he had one made for me. But probably the most romantic thing he’s done for me is, on my birthday, he woke me up out of bed at like six in the morning. He was like, ‘We gotta go,’ and I’m just like half asleep, like, ‘What do you mean? What do you mean?’ And he just starts pulling me, and the sun was just coming up, and he had flowers all the way down his house and violin players everywhere … [laughs] The rager can have a sweet side.”
