Kylie Jenner Says She Isn't Going to College: 'I Just Really Want to Be a Businesswoman'

Kylie Jenner is already well on her way to building her fashion and beauty empire – and she has no plans to hit the pause button on her business to attend university.

“I’m not going to college,” Jenner, 18, told Interview magazine for her provocative December/January cover shoot. “I have done everything to prepare for college, so if I wanted to in the future, I could go at any time. But I’m not planning on going anytime soon.”

According to the magazine, Jenner’s sister Kim Kardashian West, 35, could be heard in the background saying, “Good girl!”

Jenner, who was homeschooled for her final years of high school, officially graduated in July, and her mom Kris Jenner, 60, threw her a surprise bash to celebrate the milestone.

Despite her decision not to pursue a higher education just yet, Jenner maintains she still has big plans for her future, telling the magazine, “I just really want to be a businesswoman.”

“If I could do whatever I wanted, I would have a successful makeup line, and I would want to hopefully start more businesses, and just be, like, a businesswoman,” Jenner continued. “And then, hopefully, I’ll go off the map. When I’m, like, 30, I want to go off the map, have a family, and live in Malibu with a farm, and just raise my own chickens.”

Jenner is already well on her way to achieving her dreams of a successful makeup line: Her much-anticipated lip kit, which launched on Monday, sold out in minutes.

The reality star is also a budding fashionista. She and sister Kendall Jenner launched two new clothing lines in November alone, one with Topshop and another with Australian label Forever New. The sisters also have a trendy line with PacSun and released their first shoe collab with Steve Madden last year.

According to Jenner, much of her busy schedule is taken up filming and producing daily new content for her website and app.

“Right now, since I started my app, I’m constantly thinking of ideas and videos to shoot,” she told Interview. “So my days are mostly filled up with that, and then, I don’t know, I’m obsessed with my hometown of Calabasas, so I try to stay there as much as I can.”

“I’ve done so many things that most 35-year-old women still haven’t done,” she added. “You can look at anything glass-half-full or whatever. Like, yesterday I realized that I’m 18, I’m a female, and I have accomplished so much. I live in a beautiful home and I work really hard, so I’m just grateful.”

The teen isn’t the only one from her famous family to skip a bachelor’s degree. Of the six Kardashian/Jenner kids, only Kourtney and Rob Kardashian attended college.

Kourtney, 36, first attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, before transferring to the University of Arizona two years later with a major in theater arts and a minor in Spanish. Rob, 28, graduated from the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business in 2009.
