Kendall Jenner Speaks Out On The Ballet-Themed Photo Shoot That Angered Real-Life Dancers

Kendall Jenner has a message for all the dancers out there who found her ballet-inspired photo shoot for Vogue España “disrespectful,” “dangerous” and “cringe-worthy.”

On Thursday, the 20-year-old model took to her app to address the recent controversy, explaining how the theme came to be.

“It’s so funny that people are getting pregnant and married — or having crazy drama — but my drama is ballerinas being upset at me!” she shared. “With my Vogue Spain shoot, I didn’t even know I was going to be a ballerina until I went into hair and makeup.”

The editorial feature was released last month and was accompanied with a video, which showed the reality star attempting to dance en pointe and sashay across the room. Classically trained dancers immediately called Jenner out for her lack of form, some seeing it as a mockery to the art.

Even “Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller was appalled by the magazine’s decision to use a non-dancer for the shoot, sharing her opinions on Instagram. “I cannot be a fan of this shoot. There are so many amazing dancers in the world… Kendall Jenner is not one of them!” she wrote at the time.

Still, Jenner doesn’t seem to understand why the feature upset so many ballerinas.

“It confuses me how people can get that upset when there are so many important things going on in the world,” Jenner continued. “But, it’s obviously not going to stop me from working hard and being me.”
