While we're all in lockdown it seems that every celebrity under the sun is taking to Instagram Live. Case in point: Kendall Jenner took to the social network to give us an insight into her life in quarantine, as well revealing a few secret hidden talents.

The supermodel spoke with Moon for a live Q&A while stuck in the house in LA, where she has been keeping busy painting in her art studio and cooking up a storm with her famous pals (she was rumoured to be dating NBA player Devin Booker after they were photographed together, which led to this brilliant Kendall clapback).

The eldest Jenner sister lifted the lid on some surprising facets of her life, from how she wants to follow in Caitlyn Jenner's famous footsteps to her thoughts on Tik Tok, her next house project and what she's most proud of. Here we round up 13 things we learned from the famous model.

1. On how she's staying creative and keeping positive in quarantine:

"I paint a lot, I'm horrible at paining, but I just like doing it as a form of therapy," Kendall said. "Talking to people you love, friends and family and being optimistic is really important, any chance I get to speak to someone, as well as getting outside are the things that always make me feel better."

2. On dealing with anxiety:

Kendall has been open about her battle with anxiety and panic attacks on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and one way she deals with them is by writing. "I'm a big journaler, so I write about what's going on in my life and my feelings and that helps [a lot] with my anxiety."

3. On TikTok:

"Kylie calls me everyday asking what her TikTok is. I don't have it, but I've been on a few of my friend's TikToks," she said, and we're pretty sure she means with BFF Fai Khadra.

4. On her current house project:

"I'm doing a lot of organising. I'm a OCD freak, I get such a kick out of it, the satisfaction I get out of organising, like nothing compares," the model said; clearly spending time with Khloe Kardashian has paid off. While Kendall has been giving her house a big spring clean, momager Kris Jenner suggested in the comments that she should start a veg garden, which Kenny said should be her next house project. You never know, maybe we will see some gardening on KUWTK next season?

5. On cooking:

While her family is famous for regularly using chefs, (who recalls that fight about Kourtney not wanting a chef for Christmas morning?) Kendall says she loves to cook and can nail most recipes first time. "Me and my friends love to cook together, but we're more experimental," she shared. "I need to explore it more though, I have so many cookbooks that I need to crack open," most of which are old cookbooks given to her by Kris. "Growing up I loved to bake, it's how I would kill my time after school, when I was done with my homework. I find cooking very therapeutic and generally enjoy letting something other than a phone or a TV occupy my mind."

6. On her star sign:

"I'm such a Scorpio, we're badass, but secretively we're really cool. I love representing Scorpios, I think we're so sick, I'm trying not to be biased but I think we are the best sign."

7. On what she would do if she wasn't modelling:

"I would hope to be in the Olympics riding horses. I still ride but I don't get it in as much. But I still would love to go to keep the Olympic thing going in my family, my dad would be so proud, so hopefully one day, it's still on my list." Kenny for Gold at the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics?

8. On her favourite superpower:

"Mind reading, invisibility or being able to fly."

9. Her secret talent:

"My dad was trying to teach my how to whistle and I couldn't figure out how to do it and the only thing that came out was this high pitch whistle that sounded like a bird. I used to get my teachers in school with that one all the time."

10. On what she's most proud of:

"I'm most proud of the experiences I've had, the lessons I've learned and the person I have become over time and how I have grown just from being thrown into a really intense but amazing world and the people I surround myself with."

11. Her favourite store:

"What Goes Around Comes Around in New York, but I'm more of an online shopper than going into stores, although me and my mum have done some serious shopping in Paris!"

12. Go-to Karaoke song:

"Anything Whitney Houston or 'Gasolina'. I was in New York in a karaoke bar with seven of my friends and 'Gasolina' was the only thing that got us going, we we're so stoked."

13. Favourite day of the week:

"I love a good Sunday with nothing to do, listening to some really good music with jazz or some slow R&B song and at the end of the day having a glass of wine, some nice dinner and just go to bed early. Sundays are the best." Who knew Kendall was a jazz fan?
