Kylie Jenner Covers Complex Magazine
Kylie Jenner is front-and-center on this month’s issue of COMPLEX where she talks about her life, growing up a celebrity and her infamous lips…
“When I was younger, I used to think about my sister’s name, Kim,” Jenner says. “Growing up with her, I always knew her name, but now everybody else knows it, too. That’s so crazy! It feels different when you say it now: Kim Kardashian.” She emphasizes each syllable of her sister’s name to convey just how inconceivable her fame is. “Now, I feel like that when I say my name. Kylie Jenner. Fuck! Everyone knows my name too.”
“It has been an insecurity of mine all my life,” she says now. It all started when she was 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,’” she remembers, crossing her arms and hunching over. The conversation obviously makes her uncomfortable. “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 lied about the fillers because, at the time, she thought it was the right thing to do. “I wasn’t even 17 yet,” she says. “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.”
Jenner admits that she got carried away with the injections. “When you first get them done, you’re like, ‘Oh, it could be a little bit bigger on that side.’ I’d go back and be like, ‘They went down’ and think they could be bigger. But I went too far. It was very painful.”
Fellas, you wanna kiss Kylie?
