Kanye West to perform at birthday bash?

Little sister of Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney, Kendall Jenner turns 16 today! As a birthday present, E! is giving Kendall her very own Sweet 16 birthday television special.

Kanye West to perform at birthday bash?

How could we forget another Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, turns 16 today? While big sister Kim Kardashian made headlines for her birthday a few weeks ago and arguably bigger headlines with her recent divorce to Kris Humphries, we still think Kendall Jenner deserves the spotlight for today.

Us Weekly reports E! is letting Kendall in on her share of the reality television spotlight, too -- they've confirmed Kendall will be getting her own Kardashian special which will "detail the weeks leading up to her 16th birthday party." While Kendall doesn't appear to be shy -- she's a model and a cheerleader -- her mom, Kris Jenner, reported to E! that Kendall doesn't want a huge over-the-top bash. "She's not a partyzilla. Her mother is tough. I wanted this big party for Kendall and she was like, 'Mom, calm down!'"

So what does a daughter from a family with millions want? Just about what every other 16-year-old does -- a new car. Kris explained both she and Bruce think it's a reasonable gift request. "Every teenager wants a car when they turn 16 because it gives them that sense of freedom. Kendall has to ask to be driven everywhere and her school is kind of far away from where we live so I think it would be a good thing for Kendall to have some wheels. So it just depends. She's such a great kid!" No word yet on what exactly the type of car she'll be driving around Los Angeles in, but we bet it will probably be very expensive.

The Huffington Post reports Kendall's Sweet 16 E! special will follow Kendall as she goes car shopping with her parents and contemplates getting a tattoo. Us Weekly says their inside sources even say Kendall may get another huge surprise in the form of a concert from a major entertainer like Nicki Minaj or Kanye West -- so much for a low-key event.

Regardless of the birthday party bash or gifts given, it's safe to say Kendall will be celebrating her birthday with her close-knit family. Older sister Khloe Kardashian tweeted, "Happy Birthday Kendal!!!!!!!!!! I love you more than you know!!!."

SheKnows wishes Kendall Jenner a very happy and sweet 16 birthday!
