Kylie Jenner Explains Her Decision to Get Lip Fillers

Kylie Jenner is on the cover of this month’s Complex magazine, and in her interview inside she talked everything from her relationship with Tyga to why she chose to get lip fillers at the age of 16.


“It has been an insecurity of mine all my life. [In middle school] this guy I kissed was like, ‘Your lips are really small but you’re a really good kisser. I didn’t think you were gonna be good at kissing.’ It was so rude. From then on, I just felt like I saw guys staring at my lips. I felt like no one wanted to kiss me.”

She also explained why she kept the move a secret.

“I wasn’t even 17 yet. What if I came out and said, ‘Oh, yeah, I got my lips done’? What are all those moms going to think about me? These kids, my fans, they’re going to think I’m crazy. I didn’t want to be a bad influence. I didn’t want people to think you had to get your lips done to feel good about yourself. But they thought it was crazier that I was lying about it because it was so obvious. I wish I had just been honest and upfront.”

Kylie also discussed how hard it is growing up in the public eye.

“It’s probably the hardest thing. You don’t know who you are. I didn’t know who I was a year ago, and I still don’t know exactly who I am now. You’re trying to grow up and make mistakes and everybody’s watching.”
