Kendall Jenner Explains Instagram Hiatus!

2015 ESPY Awards - Arrivals

Over the weekend, Kendall Jenner seemingly disappeared from Instagram—-just poof with no explanation. But now the top model explains why she left on her sit down with Ellen Degeneres and she’s already got an itch to come back. “It’s so crazy to me that it even became huge news like that. Like, I have no idea how that . I mean, like, I guess I didn’t expect it. I also took my Twitter off my phone. Like, I didn’t delete my Twitter entirely, but I took the app off my phone, so I had no idea anyone was even talking about it. I honestly didn’t even think anyone would care. My friends kept texting me and my family members, and I was like, How does everyone know? And they kept sending me links to, like, CNN and all these things and I was like, Why is this even that big of a deal? It’s so crazy.”

So what happened?

“I don’t know, I just wanted to detox,” Kendall tells Ellen. “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 no worries she’ll be back. “I’ll be back, I’ll come back! Withdrawals are starting to come in.”

Kendall just wanted a little break to live in the moment. “It’s kind of a nice, refreshing feeling. 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.”
