Kylie Jenner Transforms into the Arab Popstar We Didn’t Know We Needed

The internet always wins.

by

The Kardashian-Jenner is no stranger to ‘taking inspiration’ from different cultures, often even appropriating them. From Kim Kardashian almost naming her shapewear label ‘Kimono’, appropriating Japan’s national dress, to Kourtney calling herself the ‘Moana of Motunui’ on Thursday, they’re not short of culturally insensitive scandals.

When Kylie Jenner shared her latest campaign for Kylie Cosmetics this week, it was Arabs who had the final laugh, though.

With one look at Kylie’s kohled eyes and her over-lined gloss, the internet couldn’t help but point out the campaign’s resemblance to a 2000s Arab album covers. It didn’t take long before countless memes surfaced, and the rest is history. 

Jenner was parodied as everything from a middle-aged Arab auntie, to a major Lebanese popstar, and we rounded up our favourite posts for you.
