Kylie Jenner Says She Wants to 'Retire' Her Social Media 'Alter-Ego,' Slams Plastic Surgery Rumors
By Alex Ungerman
Kylie Jenner is kind of over being Kylie.
The reality star covers the newest issue ofWonderland magazine, where the 18-year-old admits she may "retire" her Instagram profile, with over 52 million followers, which Kylie dubs her "alter-ego."
"It’s not that I don’t want to do it ... Yeah, actually I kind of just don’t want to do it any more," she confesses. "Honestly. But I’ve always been like that. I want to be a businesswoman and be behind-the-scenes. Kylie Jenner needs to retire."
Kylie says that getting bullied while growing up caused her to look to people with problems greater than her own.
"Growing up, I’ve heard the worst things anyone could ever say about me, and bullying was such a big part of my life," she shares. "So I started to look towards people with ... bigger, more real issues than I have."
"I thought [Internet speculation] was going to chill down when I said: 'OK, I admit it, I got my lips done, I never lied, I just wasn’t telling the whole truth,'" she says. "People don’t realize I just turned 18, so there’s no way my mom would ever let me undergo a nose job or a boob job."
Meanwhile, Kylie also talks about Caitlyn Jenner in the interview, admitting that she always more or less knew about her gender identity.
"I knew about it my whole life, but it was never admitted to and then it was all said and done," Kylie says. "I honestly just wanted to not be lied to. I just wanted honesty and no secrets."
"I'm OK with everything, as long as everyone’s honest," she continues.
Despite her young age, growing up and honing her business acumen seems to be Kylie's focus in 2016. While talking to ET earlier this month, she revealed some helpful advice from her mother on becoming a great businesswoman.
