To put it quite mildly, 2015 has been quite a year for Kylie Jenner. Without jeopardizing her crucial role in the Kardashian-Jenner family empire, the 18-year-old entrepreneur has successfully carved out her own place in the increasingly crowded landscape of American pop culture. Gracing the cover of Interview Magazine's December issue with some inarguably dope Steven Klein shots, King Kylie opened up to Chris Wallace regarding life as a young mogul, the side of her the public never sees, and her plans for a quieter future.

"There is absolutely a side of me that people don’t know," Kylie reveals. "I’m not myself on Snapchat or Instagram. That’s totally not me. I’m way flashier on Instagram and Snapchat, because I feel like that’s what people want to see and that’s what I’ve always done, so I’m not going to stop. People want to see my cars and my purses. People love fashion. But that’s so not me."

Kylie also speaks candidly regarding her desire to eventually go off the grid, trading in the Keeping Up With the Kardashians life for Malibu chicken raising:

If I could do whatever I wanted, I would have a successful makeup line, and I would want to hopefully start more businesses, and just be, like, a businesswoman. And then, hope- fully, 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. [Wallace laughs] My next goal for 2016 is to learn how to garden.

Of course, no interview is complete without first finding out the subject's preferred superpower. For Kylie, that's apparently an even split between invisibility and this:

What I think is so amazing about having everything, and feeling like I have everything, is that I don’t really find happiness within materialistic things. Like, it’s cool if I can buy myself a new car, and I think it’s amazing for a week, but then the thrill is over, and I’m like, “Oh, so I guess that wasn’t really happiness.” I’ve realized through the years that I just find happiness in other things, whether it’s my dogs or my friends or, like, looking at the sunset. So if I were to wish for something else, it would just to be happy all the time, to have a superpower of not letting things affect me, and to be true to who I am, always.
