Kylie Jenner Grow Up in the Public Eye

Kylie JennerKylie Kristen Jenner is an American reality television star known for appearing on the E! Reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

The February cover star deliberates dealing with rumors, plastic surgery, and life in the spotlight.

On growing up in the public eye: “When I was like 10, 11, 12, I had a really hard time with the media. During your adolescence, girls deal with their peers at school, then they go home and they don’t have to deal with it [there]. It was a lot more haters to deal with … especially since I was younger and my sisters were so beautiful and had it all together. I can have my moments and say that I don’t want this life anymore, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. The good is definitely worth the bad.”

On her parents announcing their separation while filming KUWTK: “I didn’t say anything [while the cameras were rolling.] I went in my room and cried right after. If they’re happy, I’m happy, I guess.”

On plastic surgery rumors: “You guys have watched me grow up since I was 9. My face is going to get different. Now, I know how to do my makeup, contour, and everything. I’m not against surgery. I’d never say no, but I don’t desire it right now.”

On the Kardashian-Jenner girl code: “If a guy does one little thing to me, then you’re dealing with, like, six other girls.”
