We know that Kylie is “over” her lip injections and her mother was adamantly against them but it still remains a mystery why she got them in the first place. The reality star opened up to Elle Canada about her procedure, saying, “It was always an insecurity of mine and I did it strictly for me.”
She also reveals why she was so tight-lipped about it (pun intended): “When I got my lips done, I literally told no one! I didn’t tell my best friend or even the guy I liked at the time. I really thought it was no one’s business. My mom was super-against it, but I begged her and begged her and she finally let me do it. After I did them, I thought it was so obvious that I didn’t have to say anything. I never denied it because I always told my publicist ‘no lip questions,’ so no one ever asked me. I never said I got them done, but I never denied it either. But people thought I was such a liar!”
Despite rumors, Kylie insists she’s had no other form of plastic surgery: “Then people were saying I got my chin reconstructed, that I got a nose job, an eyebrow lift, I got my boobs done, this and that. So I wanted to come out and say that this is crazy and I only got my lips done. I don’t think people realize that I just turned 18. There’s no way my mom or any doctor would let me go under the knife like that—that’s just so crazy!
The youngest Jenner is obviously used to critics, like Rebel Wilson who recently revealed she turned down the opportunity to co-present with the Jenner sisters at the VMAs. But Kylie admits the negativity is taking its toll on her: “I mean…I’m still human; I can’t come across something so hurtful and just brush it off and go on with my day. It’s really hard, and I’m still growing up. Surprisingly, it wasn’t as hard for me when I was younger. When I was 15 or 16, I never looked at the comments; I never Googled myself—I wouldn’t go there. I didn’t even know about any of these mean blogs. I know that if you don’t read it, it doesn’t affect you, but it’s still hard.”
While she doesn’t open up much about her personal life (“I don’t think I will ever be super-public about my relationships,” she says), Kylie does shed light on her relationship with her Dad, Caitlyn Jenner, who recently transitioned from male to female: “I just find that because everything is open and honest now, we actually spend a lot more time together. It was really hard for me in the beginning, but now it’s much easier. It’s ‘she’ now, but it was ‘he’ who always had this secret. Now she’s just free and way happier, and it makes me feel more comfortable. It’s cool. She’s the same person—she just looks different.”
