Kylie Jenner vows to quit showbusiness at 30

Kim Kardashian's younger sister Kylie Jenner has promised to step away from public life when she reaches the age of 30.

The 18 year old, who is a half-sister to Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, was thrust into the spotlight as a child as she took part in the family's reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.


She has since branched out on her own by taking on a number of solo projects, including launching a cosmetics line, and Kylie has now revealed she plans to give up showbusiness as soon as she hits the landmark birthday.


"If I could do whatever I wanted, I would have a successful make-up line, and I would want to hopefully start more businesses, and just be, like, a businesswoman," she tells Interview Magazine. "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... My next goal for 2016 is to learn how to garden."


Kylie goes on to reminisce about growing up in the spotlight as part of the Kardashian clan.


"I feel like I'm going to look back and be like, 'Damn, I wish I could've just been a kid and done normal teenage stuff that my friends get to do,'" she adds. "But it also is a blessing, and I've done so many things that most 35-year-old women still haven't done.


"You can look at anything glass half-full or whatever. Like, yesterday I realised 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 teenager also reveals she discovered her independence as a teenager when she started dyeing her hair: "Honestly, what I think set everything off is when I cut my hair off when I was 16 and dyed it blue. After that, I just felt so free and wanted to experiment with my look...


"I just felt like I could be whoever I wanted to be, and I'm all about, like, experimenting. I'm still so young, so I'm just having fun."
