The infamous 19-year-old Jenner has spent all her life on camera and pretty much has all the young girls wanting to be like her. With a flourishing beauty line of Kylie Cosmetics, multiple collaborations with big companies, having her and her sister, Kendall’s clothing line and even ad runs, Kylie has everything a young teenage girl could dream of. But, in her eyes, it’s not as easy as it looks. Her sister, Kendall, and she used to feel a bit of backlash growing up side her trifecta of sisters: Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian. That name is more than just a household name; it holds power. Kylie stated,
“When I was younger, I used to think about my sister’s name, Kim… I always knew her name, but now everybody else knows it too.” “Now, I feel like that when I say my name. Kylie Jenner. Everyone knows my name too.”
She is already building her own empire, just like her sisters, and we know her mom, Kris is beyond proud of her for being her own woman. But even though fame has its ups, it definitely has its downs as well.
Jenner states that she has had a lot of problems with facing cyber-bullying about what she does on the internet or even what she’s wearing, most of the time but sometimes just wants to be a “normal” teenager who doesn’t have to deal with the constant scrutiny and the paparazzi always following her every move. She says that,
“You’re trying to grow up and make mistakes and everybody’s watching.” so it’s hard for her to be “normal” but she still tries to be herself and that’s Kylie. Not the Kylie Jenner we see all the time.
A long, daunting time for Kylie was back in 2014 when rumors were going around saying that she had received lip injections. There were tabloids and memes EVERYWHERE. But in 2015, she finally opened up about them. Jenner stated that it all started back in middle school, when she would get teased about her small lips, and she thought no one would want to kiss her and at the age of 16, she got the procedure done. It was painful for her but she said if she could go back and change subtle things she would; such as how big she got them, and why she lied about them. Jenner lied because she didn’t want people to misjudge her, especially her younger audience an their parents.
She said her mother is a big reason for why she is the person she is. Kris taught her how to focus on what’s important and just be her. Kylie exclaims,
“I used to agree to do everything, but when I started taking control of my life again, I felt better… At the end of the day, I have to live with the everything I do. I’m just proud of myself for not going crazy.”
And we applaud her for that. It’s not easy for a young adult growing up in the limelight for pretty much all their life. She’s had times where she would break down and cry and have anxiety attacks, but she’s definitely grown into a beautiful, young, smart lady. In 2015, she got the words, “Sanity” tattooed on her, to remind herself of the importance of maintaining stability within self in spite of her being a celebrity at the end of the day.
