    Kylie once confessed that if she could spend a day as any artist, she'd be Nicki Minaj. We bet this made Nicki dissing Kylie's relationship with Tyga in the video for "Feeling Myself" all the more hurtful.

    One of Kylie's favorite foods to cook is yellow rice. According to her: "I'm living out my youth not doing any exercise and eating what I want, which is pretty bad. I'm into yellow rice – you just cook it for 15 minutes, it tastes so good." That sounds like a healthy choice compared to eating what we want, which is an entire box of Tagalongs.

  • Baby You can Drive My Car

    Khloe isn't the only member of the family with a history of driving woes. Kylie wound up in a car accident only 18 days after getting her license, and she earned a speeding ticket a few months after that. We'd suggest letting Tyga do the driving, but the couple got into a car crash last year while the rapper was behind the wheel.

    Kylie co-wrote a science fiction novel with her sister, Kendall. Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia was published in 2014. The sisters were criticized for relying on a ghostwriter, but the ghostwriter, Mary Sloan, insisted that the writing process was collaborative.

    Although she was born into a wealthy family, Kylie has been financially independent for years. Kylie told InStyle that Kris cut her off long before her 18th birthday. "My Mum cut me off financially three years ago so I pay for everything -- my car, my gas and food as well as my clothes," Kylie said. Hear that, fellow milllenials? Kylie is hustling for her pay checks just like we are.

  • Picture Perfect

    Kylie doesn't just appear on television -- she watches it, too! She loves The Vampire Diaries and American Horror Story. Considering how much vampy clothing she wears, Kylie's spooky taste in TV shows should come as no surprise.

    Kylie isn't just a reality star turned designer and model -- she's also an aspiring actress. In an interview with Marie Claire Mexico, Kylie said, "Right now I love designing and I want to pursue that career once I turn 18, but acting is something I would regret not giving a chance when I'm older, so I would love to try it and see if I like it." She added, "I used to do plays in school and then in my community. I would participate in all of them 'til I was 13." We'll be watching for her name in the credits of the next Coen brothers movie.

    Kylie's favorite way to spend a night out with her boyfriend is refreshingly unglamorous. She loves to go out for dinner and eating junk food with Tyga. Chinese food, Hot Cheetos, and doughnut holes are among the couple's favorite indulgences.

  • Chic for a Cause

    Although she acts cool as can be in front of the camera, Kylie has dealt with her share of anxiety. Kylie's nerves got the best of her during a class presentation when she accidentally said, "My favorite food is soccer and basketball." It's okay, Kylie, we used to call our 4th grade teacher "mom." 

  • Started from the Bottom Now We're Here

    Kylie's first modeling gig was for Sears in their "Crush Your Style" campaign. Humble beginnings for someone who now co-designs a line of clothing for Topshop.

    Last year, Kylie launched an anti-bullying campaign on Instagram called #IAmMoreThan. According to Kylie, she started the campaign because she "wanted to give other people who have been bullied, and who overcame it to do something amazing, the opportunity to use my platform to bring awareness, to inspire people."
