Kylie Jenner's 'Surprise Gift for the World' Is Her Steamy Short Film with Tyga
Kylie Jenner's Christmas gift to the world isn't exactly family-friendly
The 19-year-old released a short film, costarring boyfriend Tyga, that was shot and directed by photographer Sasha Samsonova. Jenner’s secret project was filmed over a month ago in Los Angeles, and premiered on Christmas Day as a “little surprise gift for the world,” according to Samsonova.
Along with musical accompaniment from singer Niia, what follows are scenes of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star in the shower wearing only a drenched white T-shirt as her rapper beau joins her.
“It fell into place very, very naturally. It just happened,” Samsonova told W magazine about shooting with her “muse” Jenner. “The whole deal with this video is that it’s a very personal experience. It’s like you’re watching this person from a point of view that has never been seen before,” she explained.
Samsonova’s spontaneous shoot is the latest collaboration with Jenner, who she has photographed for many years.
“It’s super raw footage,” said Samsonova. “The thing about this video is that there’s no post-production work whatsoever. It’s only cut together. It’s very raw, and we tried to keep it that way — no skin retouching, nothing.”
