Kendall Jenner learned to "shut up and bow down" whenever she meets Beyonce because she is always nervous around her idol.

Kim Kardashian's supermodel half-sister admits she struggles with crippling shyness at times, especially when she is in the presence of true superstars, like the "Formation" hitmaker.

"I am 100 per cent a huge fan of Beyonce," she gushed to Harper's Bazaar. "If I see her, I will faint. I've met her before. I just get really nervous and quiet—I just shut up and bow down!"

Beyonce isn't the only celebrity Kendall has been anxious to meet; she was also scared of her initial introduction to Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld.

"I met him at my first fitting for Chanel two years ago," she recalled. "I was already nervous because it was my first season, my first Chanel show, and I didn't really know what I was doing. I'm also pretty shy when I first meet someone..."


However, the meeting went well and the 20-year-old has since become a firm favorite of the iconic French fashion house.

"I had heard a lot from Cara Delevingne about how funny he is, how he's normal and just a cool guy," she continued. "Now, every time we get to work together the relationship gets better."

Kendall's shyness has also impacted her behavior around potential new friends as she has become more apprehensive about letting people in her inner circle.

"I'm not super open to new people," she said. "I have a small group of people I trust. I'm very intuitive, so I'm good at feeling out how people are, like if they have bad intentions.

"Sometimes I'm very closed off, which annoys me, but I think it's for the best."

Kendall confesses she used to dream about a career with animals, either working as a "professional horseback rider" or a veterinarian, and she heaps praise on her parents, Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, for giving her and her siblings a relatively normal upbringing, despite their fame and fortune.

"We were brought up in this abnormal world, if that's what you want to call it," Kendall opens up of growing up on her family's hugely successful reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "I feel like a lot of people say that kids who grow up in that kind of world go crazy. But it has everything to do with how your parents raise you. I was raised so normally, or as normally as I could have been."
