Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have had a promising 2018, to say the least. Following the launch of her clothing and cosmetics line, Kylie was recently named the youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes, while her partner, Travis, ushered in another collaboration with Jordan Brand ahead of his forthcoming album, Astroworld.
Since meeting just over a year ago, details regarding the couple’s union have largely been kept under wraps. Now, in their first public photoshoot as a duo, the pair sat down with GQ to discuss the beginning of their relationship, the “Kardashian Curse,” media pressures, and their newfound roles as parents. Travis also revealed he contributed a verse to Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s Kids See Ghosts album, but it didn’t make the final cut.
We’ve rounded up some choice takeaways from the interview below, which you can read in full over at GQ.
Kylie on their first ‘date’
“Coachella was one of the stops on his tour. So he said, ‘I’m going back on tour—what do we want to do about this?’ Because we obviously liked each other. And I was like, ‘I guess I’m going with you,’ […] I really jumped on the bus. And then we rode off into the sunset. I did the whole tour with him.”
Travis on the biggest mistake of his career
“I wouldn’t have worn snapbacks. And also I would’ve definitely hid—hard—until my hair grew out, bro. I hate when people randomly take pictures of me. I’d look crazy as fuck in them. No lineup, no nothing.”
Travis on Astroworld
“It touches home base.”
Travis the last time he cried
“When my daughter was born. As soon as I heard her crying […] I was there through the hell, the epidural and shit. Crazy.”
Kylie on her cosmetics range
“The reason I got into makeup is it’s all about making yourself feel better […] I really want to create an experience.”
Travis on the “Kardashian Curse”
“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.”
Kylie on Travis’ most romantic gesture
“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.”
Kylie on media pressure and attention
“I don’t think he’s really cool with it, but he deals with it, because we love each other and we have a family. For sure, I know he doesn’t like the attention. That’s why we just go the extra mile to keep our relationship super private, or like, if he has events or something, I won’t come. Because I want him to do his own thing. I want him to be him.”
Tandem with their cover story, the couple also played a round of ’23 Questions’ exclusively for GQ. Watch below.
