Kendall Jenner needed a social media detox.
The 21-year-old model recently stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Wednesday, where she confirmed that she’s temporarily quit Instagram.Kendall says she needed a break from social media, and admits that she started to become too “dependent” on it.
“I don’t know, I just wanted to detox,” Kendall explains. “I just felt like I wanted a little bit of a break. I’m always on it. I would wake up in the morning and look at it first thing, I’d go to bed and it’s the last thing I would look at. I felt a little too dependent on it, so I wanted to take a minute to detox.”
But Kendall says she’ll definitely make a return to the popular photo-sharing app.
“I’ll be back, I’ll come back!” she says. “Withdrawals are starting to come in.”
Still, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star recommends that everyone take a similar break.
“It’s kind of a nice, refreshing feeling,” she shares. “I’m away from my phone so much more. You start to engage in, like, real life, and you have to deal with real people right in front of you, so it’s kind of really nice to be away from it, even if it’s just Instagram.”
Kendall also talks about her new niece, Dream Kardashian. Kendall’s older brother, Rob Kardashian, and his fiancee, Blac Chyna, welcomed their first child together last week.
“She’s so beautiful,” Kendall says, sharing a picture of the newborn. “She looks just like Robert Kardashian.”
“He’s so happy,” she also comments about brother Rob. “It makes me so happy I could literally cry. He’s the cutest.”
