Kendall Jenner Wearing a See-Through Top in Her New Instagram Pic: Is She Growing Up Too Fast?

She's only 18, but she's also a model -- so is the pic really so shocking after all?
In the world of the Kardashian family, there is no such thing as growing up too fast

Kendall Jenner just turned 18. Most kids that age are stressing over college choices and prom dates, but Kendall is living on Kardashian time -- and Kardashian years, like dog years, add up quickly. In Kendall's world, turning 18 is a totally appropriate occasion to show the world your nipples -- like in this photo she posted Tuesday night on Instagram.

Granted, it's not unusual for a model (which Kendall is) to wear see-through clothing for a fashion shoot (which is where this photo came from). It's just that we've seen a lot of this sort of thing in the lives of Kendall and her sister Kylie Jenner, 16. Consider those recent rumors that the sisters were sneaking into 21-and-over clubs to get drunk. (They have both denied this.) Consider the extremely busty dress Kylie wore during a recent family photo shoot. Consider the controversy over those sexy bikini shots Kendall posed for when she was just 14. And consider the porn offers that came pouring in as soon as Kendall hit the big 1-8 on Nov. 3.

Now, not all of this is Kendall and Kylie's doing (particularly not the porn offers). It's just that they're reaching adulthood under very unusual circumstances: they grew up on a reality show, with their siblings and parents on constant rotation in the tabloids. They only go to school for three or four hours a day, because they're too busy with the family business, which can best be described as "getting the most attention possible at any given time." The sisters literally don't remember being anything but famous.

So yes, odds are good that Kendall is growing up too fast (or at least, not on a normal timetable). What can we say? It runs in the family.

Why don't you SHUT UP. For a change. You actually want people to act disrespectful towards these young woman you are disgraceful . You know you have the power to move people to do and text in anyway you ouch them and all I see is a misuse of that power time and time again. If I were you guys I'd watch as the world is changing and you never know how they will react to you at any given time and from your own words " PAY BACKS A BITCH" !!!!
