Kylie Jenner Wants to Be Remembered for More Than Just Her Lips

She has a heart, too.

Kylie Jenner spoke with TIME Magazine following her second consecutive appearance on their annual Most Influential Teens list to draw the line between her impact on society and that of her Nobel Prize laureate co-nominees.

“I always start these huge trends, and I don’t even realize what I’m capable of,” she says. “People might have been upset because [Kendall and I] were next to, like, young girls who started schools .. But we’re just different people! We’re influential in different ways, and that’s okay.”

She attributes her viral Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge as an accident connected to her massive social media impact, and would prefer to use her platform to address anti-bullying in the launch of her #IAmMoreThan campaign.

“I just want to inspire my fans to be whoever they want to be, because that’s what I’ve always done.”

Jenner shares an insider secret that might shock fans: She shops for makeup at CVS. “I don’t use crazy stuff,” she tells TIME. “There’s always ways to do it for less.”

She speaks highly of her parent Caitlyn Jenner who has taught her the meaning of unconditional kindness. At a recent lunch together, the I Am Cait star befriended the entire restaurant.

“She will treat the waitress that was serving us the same way she’ll treat the photographer that shot her for Vanity Fair … it’s really inspiring.”

Jenner hopes at the end of her career that she will be remembered for helping people and being an inspiration to young girls. “And it wasn’t just getting your lips done and having good hair,” she continues. “But being a good person and inspiring other people to not bully other people … and be nice to everybody.”
