Kylie Jenner has some big shoes to fill with her powerful sisters and mom all making entrepreneurial moves around her, but the 17-year-old is finding her way. It can’t be easy to grow up in the public eye and while being in the Kardashian-Jenner clan definitely has its perks, the teen shares the downsides of living in front of the cameras in her cover story for Cosmopolitan’s February issue.
"When I was like 10, 11, 12, I had a really hard time with the media,” Jenner said. “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."
Jenner, who poses with her signature plump lips, jeans, white tee and a glitzy blue jacket for her cover, recalls learning about her parents’ separation while filming an episode of her family’s reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“I didn’t say anything [while the cameras were rolling]. I went in my room and cried after. If they’re happy, I’m happy, I guess,” she said.
As for the rumors that she’s already undergone plastic surgery, Jenner explains that her different looks are all due to her growing up.
"You guys have watched me grow up since I was 9. My face is going to get different,” she said. “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."
