Kylie Jenner's recent shoot and interview with Complex
shows her in a light we've never seen. She speaks candidly about her relationships and also decides to go topless for the first time. The young star stated that "I want to try something new". Karizza Sachez, the journalist, notes that Jenner boots all the men out of the studio, bar Tyga, remarking "I'm comfortable with my body, but not that comfortable. I'm not going to be walking around like that with a bunch of guys".
Speaking about the craziness of her life she says "I don't hate my life, I'm happy. But everything that comes with it- the paparazzi and not being able to do normal things? I've been famous for what feels like my whole life. I just want to know what it feels like not to be". Continuing later to say that "fame isn't bad, but growing up in the spotlight is a challenge", adding "you don't know who you are. I didn't know who I was a year ago, and I still don't know exactly who I am now. You're trying to grow up and make mistakes and everybody's watching".
Later in the interview with Complex Kylie admitted that she hopes to have a short stay in the spotlight "I just know that this life isn't for me forever. If someone told me how big I was going to be, I probably would've had a second thought about it. I don't want to be 'Kylie Jenner'. It's become a job more than who I am. I don't even want to be that person anymore".
On Her Lips
Kylie opened up to Complex about her lip injections, that caused a large controversy back in 2014. She states that "It has been an insecurity of mine all my life. It all started 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".
So why did she lie about the injections? Jenner reveals that at the time it felt like the right thing to do "I wasn't even 17 yet" adding "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".
The young star admits in this interview that she got carried away with the lip fillers to begin with saying "I went too far. It was very painful". She notes that she's never had permanent plastic surgery despite the constant rumours.
On Tyga & Relationships
We all know that Tyga and Kylie's relationship has been one drama after the other. First off it was their age gap (she was still a minor when rumours started) and now it's the fact that Tyga's baby momma is dating Rob, Kylie's brother, who are expecting a child.
Kylie revealed that "The first year we started hanging out, everyone around him told him not to be with me. But we're not doing it for the public- we love each other".
On the PND rumours, Kylie explained to Complex that "He asked me to be in the video, and that was after Tyga. 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. I was just fun".
On her brand
Earlier this year Kylie launched Kylie Cosmetics which she is now focusing on, stating "I want to be as big as the other cosmetic brands. It's my dream to be on Forbes".
Hats off to Complex, I think this is the most candid interview Kylie has ever done. It's both nice to hear her perspective but also sad to see such a young woman feel like she has no choice in who she is.
