Kylie Jenner finally speaks out on plastic surgery rumors in new interview
Much has been said of Kylie Jenner's look, whether it's complimentary, inspiring, or the opposite. She's definitely undergone a complete transformation over the years, with the 21-year-old looking considerably different to how she did when she first started appearing in episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians as a teenager - but how much of it is natural?
Given the fact that Kylie Jenner has one of the most popular Instagram accounts in the world, and makes a serious amount of money on makeup products or otherwise advertising through sponsorships, she has a great deal of sway in what her millions of fans spend their money on or how they think of themselves. Because of this, the question of whether or not she has had plastic surgery has come up again and again - and it's a question that the reality star wants to put to bed.
In the latest issue of Paper Magazine, which has previously spoken to Amanda Bynes in detail about her comeback after years out of the spotlight, Kylie wanted to set a few things straight. During the interview, she spoke about everything from her business to her look, to her family - explaining how motherhood has been a positive change in her life.
"It's genuinely what I wanted... to be a young mom," she said. "I thought, This I what I want to do, and if people accept it or don't accept it then I'm okay with every outcome."
She also used the interview to clear the air on the rumours that have circulated about her having plastic surgery. While she admits that not every part of her look comes from her routine and standard makeup, she feels offended that people would assume she's had any surgery.
"People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false. I'm terrified! I would never. They don't understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do. I mean, no. It's fillers. I'm not denying that."
"Makeup is something that makes me feel empowered, makes me feel good, and I think it's such a positive thing. There's no harm in playing around with it and feeling good about yourself."
During the interview, she also spoke about her status as an entrepreneur. There are plenty of people out there that call her self-made, while others point out that coming from a place of wealth and privilege doesn't really qualify her as such.
"My parents told me I needed to make my own money. 'It's time to learn how to save and spend your own money,' stuff like that," she explained. "What I'm trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited."
While she's insistent that she hasn't inherited the considerable amount of money she's made, she does make sure to acknowledge that she did have a platform from which she could launch her products and online persona - which does make a difference.
