Because time is a flat circle, the Kardashians rule this world and hobbies are confined to the few people who have… purpose… we’ve found ourselves in a realm where the only things propelling us forward and keeping us up at night are Kardashian baby theories.
Don’t scoff. You’re here, too.
In the curious case of Kylie Jenner’s non-pregnancy, it’s felt much like we’re the puppets to the Kardashian’s puppeteers. They’re running the rumours, running the story and running us around in circles and circles and circles.
And here we have another circle to run.
You see, we’ve stumbled on a theory as to why Kylie Jenner may or may not be hiding from the entire world while she may or may not be growing a teeny-tiny human in her belly. (Almost like a public service, except a little less like the public service part and a little more like general, unfounded, entertaining (??) speculation.)
It all comes down to fillers.
Listen: Culture writer and author Anne Helen Petersen shares the ‘look’ most celebrities go for during pregnancy. And yes, it has a name.
In a 2015 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner, 20, admitting to getting “temporary lip fillers”.
For better or worse, our business or not, they became a key part of her public identity. (Perhaps it’s no coincidence her widely popular lip kits – her million dollar lip kits – were released in the same period the world refused to stop talking about her lips.)
