Um, spoiled much?
While many 16-year-olds are used to getting a lemon or their parents’ hand-me-down Volvo for their first set of wheels, Kylie Jenner’s new ride is going to totally blow your mind.
And get this, she’s only been legally driving on the road for less than a year and this is already her second set of wheels.
The 16-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star showed off her brand spankin’ new Range Rover on her Instagram account on Wednesday. Because apparently, the $110,000 Mercedes G-Class SUV that she got for her birthday is more last season than printed pants and boyfriend jeans.
And while there’s no doubt that Jenner earned the car herself (she is getting a paycheck for her family’s reality show and probably has plenty of endorsement deals under her belt), there’s another side of me that thinks, yes, this is WAY over-excessive for someone her age. There’s a difference between being nouveau riche and just throwing money away for no reason. This purchase is just a sign of poor parenting, especially when you let your very young, impressionable teen have these kinds of cars.
I mean, just the other day Kylie’s sister Kendall Jenner was slammed for posting an Instagram video of her wildly singing to Avril Lavigne’s "Sk8er Boi” while driving her car through the streets of Los Angeles. Thankfully nothing happened, even though she was clearly looking at her friend and doing dance moves in the driver’s seat of her car in the middle of heavy traffic.
Simply put, young girls -- both celebrity and non -- shouldn’t be given the keys to such huge, expensive vehicles (or any vehicles at all) when they are more at risk to be distracted drivers.
Plus, could you only imagine what kind of car Kylie Jenner is going to expect next after having both a Mercedes-Benz and Range Rover? Let’s just hope that those KUWTK checks keep on rolling in because I would hate to see Kylie throw a fit if she had to one day drive one of her sister’s hand-me-down cars. Because apparently driving a luxury car that is more than six months old isn’t very cool with the Beverly Hills kids these days. Talk about being out of touch with reality, right?
Do you think Kylie should have gotten a second car in less than a year?
