Jenner shares the covers with a yellow-crested cockatoo, which sits pretty with her pink Chanel tulle gown with a silver octopus cocktail ring. The Jakarta Post reported in April 2017 that populations of the yellowcrested cockatoo on several islands are critically endangered due to massive exploitation. Anna Relueaux from Manchester Metropolitan University is a lead researcher on the critically endangered species native to Indonesia and Timor Leste.  Learn more about protecting cockatoos. 

Kendall takes readers to her horse barn in the gated community of Bell Canyon, Ca. to meet Belle and Dylan. Returning in her Range Rover, Jonathan van Meter asks Kendall why the internet think she's gay. 

She laughs. “I think it’s because I’m not like all my other sisters, who are like, ‘Here’s me and my boyfriend!’ So it was a thing for a minute because no one ever saw me with a guy. I would always go that extra mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking around all the time. You don’t want to, like, look crazy.”

She pulls onto the freeway, and within seconds we’re going 90 mph. Kendall goes on: “I don’t think I have a bisexual or gay bone in my body, but I don’t know! Who knows?! I’m all down for experience—not against it whatsoever—but I’ve never been there before.” She ponders it for a moment. “Also, I know I have kind of a . . . male energy? But I don’t want to say that wrong, because I’m not transgender or anything. But I have a tough energy. I move differently. But to answer your question: I’m not gay. I have literally nothing to hide.” She lets out a mordant chuckle. “I would never hide something like that.”

The interview does touch on all Jenner's bad publicity on her Pepsi ad and Vogue India cover. No word yet, if she's getting roasted over the cockatoo.
