I Dream About Having A Normal Teenage Life All The Time’- Kylie Jenner Tells TIME

Kylie Jenner-OnoBello (1)

Kylie Jenner made it to TIME’s Most Influential Teens for the second year in a row. The magazine explained she got into the list owing to her “notoriety online and ability to catalyze trends in fashion and beauty.”

The Reality star granted the magazine an interview following the release of the list and talked about a lot of things. Read excerpts from the interview below!

On the harsh criticisms that followed her first mention as TIME’s Most Influential…

I think people expect a lot out of [me and my family]. Whether we’re influential for one reason or another, it is what it is. I know how influential I am over my fans and followers. I feel like everything I do, my hair color, my makeup, I always start these huge trends, and I don’t even realize what I’m capable of. I didn’t care what people had to say; I didn’t even read any of that stuff. People might have been upset because we were next to, like, young girls who started schools and crazy things. But we’re just different people! We’re influential in different ways, and that’s okay.
On how her life has changed since she first appeared on the list…

It’s gotten much bigger. I never thought that that could happen. But it keeps growing, which is awesome. I’m figuring out exactly what I want to do and becoming the businesswoman that I want to be. My lip kit is launching soon, and I want to have a successful makeup line. There’s a lot of exciting things coming up that I’m excited about. I’m becoming a woman, I have my own house, and I’m really coming into my own now.

On if her social media influence is limiting…

Yeah, absolutely. Having a reality TV show, and an app and Snapchat, people think they know exactly who you are. People think they have a perfect idea of who you are from a four-second Snapchat video…and fake blogs, stories, magazine covers. In reality, that’s not the case. Nobody knows who I am except family and my close friends. But it is what it is. People have to be sensitive to—I hate using the word “celebrities”—people in the spotlight. Because there’s so much more than what you see on the cover of a magazine.

On how the #kyliejennerlipchallenge thing affected her

With the shot glasses thing, that wasn’t even my influence, because I didn’t ever pick up a shotglass; that was a trend before my name was attached to it. Then people just started calling it the Kylie Jenner lip thing. I went on social media and said I was not down for this, I don’t approve of this. So weird. But I started taking a different approach a couple of months ago. I felt like bullying was my thing, and I’m passionate about it, and I want to help other young girls and boys going through the same thing. I felt like I could be—I don’t want to say a “leader,” but I could be. I’m going through the same thing you are, so we can go through it together.
On how she would describe her talent…

I just want to inspire my fans to be whoever they want to be, because that’s what I’ve always done. And they know that. I’ve been experimenting with my hair, with my lip colors. I have green hair one week, blue hair the other. I’m Gothic another week. I’m always experimenting and trying to figure out who I am and exactly what I want to be. I feel like it inspires them to be exactly who they want to be.

 

On her app being more successful than Kim’s and why…

Kim’s older, she has a different fanbase, and she’s also—the difference between our apps is hers is very perfect. It’s simple, everything is black and white. Mine is more, I invite the cameras over and say, “Oh, hey, let’s just do this.” We do makeup tutorials and I’m laughing and talking. I know my fans are my age or younger than me, so, I just like to show my personality and show my fans my home and my dogs. I get really personal. I’m on Snapchat, and I’m just like them at the end of the day. Kim’s more private. She has kids. It’s just different.

On what she wants to be remembered for…

That I’ve helped people and that it wasn’t just about me. That I was an inspiration for young girls. And it wasn’t just getting your lips done and having good hair, but being a good person and inspiring other people to not bully other people and do good things and be nice to everybody.

On wishing to have a normal teenage life…

All the time. I dream about it. I never wish to have somebody else’s life—I was meant to have this life for a reason, and I’m going to make the best out of it. But I have normal friends. I sit at my house, and they practically live with me, and I watch them get ready to go to a high school party, hang out with their friends, go to concerts. I was [recently] sitting at home and my friend said, “Come to this concert right now! Wait… I forgot you’re famous.” I can’t just get up and go to a concert. I’ve never been to a concert like that with my friends. So there’s a lot of stuff I’ve missed out on, but there’s a lot of experiences [that I’ve had] that they were never able to experience.
