Kylie Jenner has become a pop culture phenomenon over the last three years, thanks to changes in her looks, her relationship with Tyga, her cosmetic line and of course her famous Kardashian/Jenner family that until recently maximized on oversharing through the media and social media.
The youngest Jenner recently covered the ComplexCon cover of Complex magazine and she spilled everything about why she decided to get her lips done, her relationship with Tyga, if she really dated PARTYNEXTDOOR and where she and Blac Chyna stand now. Check out the highlights below.
On Why She Lied About Getting Her Lips Done:
“I wasn’t even 17 yet,” she said. “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.”
On Why She Got Them Done:
“It has been an insecurity of mine all my life,” Jenner said. “[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.”
On Criticism About Her & Tyga’s Relationship:
“The first year we started hanging out, everyone around him told him not to be with me. I still get comments like, ‘Don’t be with him.’ But we’re not doing it for the public—we love each other. We need to be together at all times. We never get mad at each other, we just figure things out.”
On If She Really Dated PND When Her & Tyga Briefly Split:
“He asked me to be in the ‘Come and See Me’ video, and that was after Tyga,” she recalled. “Me and Party have a cool relationship. I think he’s so talented and I love his music. But I wouldn’t say we dated. It never really got to that boyfriend-girlfriend stage. It was just fun. I was doing what I wanted to do.”
On Where She & Blac Chyna Stand:
“I never fought with her over social media in the beginning, but I understand where she was coming from and what place she was in,” Jenner, who insisted that she never caused Tyga to cheat on Chyna, said. “We’re totally fine. It’s all love.”
The article also notes that she and Chyna talked often, including texting during the interview. You can read the rest of the article including how she deals with online bullies, anxiety and more, here.
