After getting a preview just days ago, Playboy gives us a closer look at its new spread with Kylie Jenner, moderated by Travis Scott and photographed by Sasha Samsonova. The project marks Kylie’s first appearance in Playboy, created for the publication’s “Pleasure” issue.
In addition to the shoot, Travis interviewed Kylie about her Playboy debut, as she stated, “I never thought I would pose for Playboy.” She went on to add, “I love what Playboy is doing right now creatively, and when you presented me with the idea—that you would be behind the cover and creative direction and be in control of the images—I thought it was a perfect fit, because I trust you and your vision.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Jenner touched on breaking boundaries as a celebrity who is also a mogul, expanding her brand, her relationship with Travis Scott, and motherhood. See below for some key excerpts from the piece, then be sure to head on over to Playboy to read the entire conversation and view the spread in full. Playboy’s “Pleasure” issue hits newsstands September 17.
On expanding her brand:
“After we built Kylie Cosmetics, I feel like I found a passion in building from the ground up and creating businesses and new companies. Now that I know the whole process really well, it comes easily to me and it’s really fun and definitely a passion of mine. We just launched Kylie Skin not too long ago, and it has been a huge success. I can’t wait to keep expanding and creating new things.”
On why her relationship with Travis Scott works:
“We think the same and we have the same goals and passions in life. Besides the fact that we have good chemistry, we have a lot of fun together. You’re my best friend. Through all the ups and downs that every relationship has, we evolve together through them and keep getting stronger.”
On motherhood affecting sexuality:
“You remind me that motherhood and sexuality can coexist and just because you embrace your sexuality doesn’t mean you have loose morals or you’re not a good mother. You can be sexy and still be a badass mom.”
On how she takes care of herself:
“I have good faith. I remain positive. I only keep positive people and positive energy around me, and I practice positive thoughts. I stay close to my family and love family time—and a good skincare routine.”
