Kylie Jenner did not seek her mum’s permission.
Momager Kris Jenner has allegedly pushed her daughters into doing lots of questionable things for money, such as releasing sex tapes and the entire Kardashian Kollection.
But even the matriarch of the most overexposed family in the world felt a bit iffy about her then 17-year-old daughter injecting foreign substances into her lips.
Kylie Jenner’s lips, which have inspired a hashtag and, indeed, a movement, have been the subject of much conjecture since they grew inexplicably, pouting flagrantly out from the teenager’s face.
The world speculated it wasn’t quite natural; Jenner claimed to have impressive make-up skills. Eventually, she came clean and admitted she felt self-conscious about her modest lips, which indeed you would in a family of such impressive pouters.
Kris Jenner must have looked into Kylie’s face and not seen the familiar face of her youngest daughter looking back at her. That would kind of suck.
“I get a little crazy — and I think that is what no one sees — and I do have definite thoughts and ideas or [ideas on] what she should do, you know, at a really young age,” she told Access Hollywood.
“I am from the generation that in my day, I mean, some of this stuff did not exist for sure but, I don’t think I did one thing physically to myself until I was in my 50s. So I am thinking, ‘Why, why? Why do you need to do that?’
“I got really upset, and then it was done and I had to let it go.”
Kylie’s lips are now world famous in their own right, but the girl behind the lips is the same, says Kris.
“Once that was done, it’s just my kid,” she said. “I love my kid. We make mistakes.”
