Kylie Jenner Speaks Out on the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge
Have you seen the latest craze on social media regarding Kylie Jenner? If not, let me fill you in. There’s this new trend amongst teens right now trying to get the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s plump limps. These teenagers suck on a shot glass or bottle until their blood vessels burst. Yes, you read that right. Obviously, doctors do not recommend taking part in this DIY face modification. What does Jenner have to say about it, though?
The 17-year-old reality star addressed the unfortunate craze on Twitter yesterday afternoon. She wrote, “I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look. I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look.” For Jenner, this means putting on tons of lip liner. She recently talked to E! News about her infamous pout saying, “I love lip liner and over lining my lips. But I don’t even care anymore. I’m like whatever, just say whatever you want.”
I can’t even believe this is an actual thing. Why would anyone voluntarily do stupid and potentially irreversible damage to the nerves around their mouth? It just doesn’t make any sense to me. Well, Jenner definitely won’t be taking her namesake challenge. She knows way better than to mess up her face. Sure, she will use makeup but that’s about it.
While Jenner has denied plastic surgery over and over again, this doesn’t stop doctors from speculating whether or not she’s telling the truth. However, as she noted not too long ago in Grazia magazine, “I haven’t had plastic surgery. I’ve never been under the knife. People flashback to pictures of me when I was 12 and say ‘Kylie’s so different’ but how can I look the same from 12 -18?”
That’s a good point. In any case, though, Kylie’s had enough: “I’m like, “Stop talking about my lips.'”
