Kendall Jenner’s topless photos for Interview magazine have elicited some strong opinions from PEOPLE readers (53 percent found the shoot too provocative). Yes, the newbie model is 18, but is she jumping into things too fast? Are some of her spreads too mature? Momager Kris Jenner doesn’t think so.
“She’s a model and that’s really her profession,” Jenner told
during a live interview Thursday. “Doesn’t she look great? Some people are like ‘She poses topless.’ She’s a model. That’s her profession. It comes with the territory.”
Stage mom Jenner also expressed that Kendall’s figure is the key to her success in the industry so far. “She has like, the perfect body, especially one that wants to be in the modeling business,” she explained. “I don’t know, I got a lot of curves and I couldn’t pull that off. But she always looks remarkable.”
In the shoot (above), Kendall ditches most of her clothes and shields her bare chest with her arms. She shared during the interview that being on the runway and posing for high-fashion spreads has always been her dream.
“To be honest, this is exactly what I wanted to be,” she said. “I was always looking up to supermodels. They were, like, my superheroes,” adding that without her mom and dad Bruce Jenner’s support she wouldn’t be where she is now: “My parents brought up Kylie and me to be workaholics. That’s something I really appreciate.”
