The REAL reason behind Kylie Jenner’s years of insecurity about her lips has been revealed! The reality star admits in a new interview that her obsession with her pout began after boys told her they thought she’d be a bad kisser because of her small lips. Can you believe that?!
It’s no secret that Kylie Jenner, 19, is incredibly insecure about her lips — she’s been vocal about that ever since she finally admitted to getting lip injections on Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2015. However, now, the teenager is opening up about the heartbreaking comments from boys that really pushed her over the edge of feeling self-conscious.
“It’s been an insecurity of mine all my life,” the reality star tells Complex. “This guy I kissed was like, ‘Your lips are really small but you’re a 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.”
Eventually, as the world watched, Kylie’s lips began growing, although she denied getting injections at first. “I didn’t want to be a bad influence,” she explains. “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.”
Now, Kylie says she still gets her lips done, but doesn’t take it to the level she did at first. “I went too far,” she says. “It was very painful.” Kylie, you’re perfect the way you are, girl — and don’t let any guy (or anyone, for that matter) make you feel any differently!
