Like it or not, Kylie Jenner is at the top of her game right now.
The 18-year-old reality star, trendsetter and social media maven has a popular lifestyle app, a clothing line with sis Kendall Jenner and a sold-out lipstick collection. But despite her success, Kylie admits to struggling with insecurities and hurtful comments in the newest issue of Interview magazine.
"Yeah, pretty much ever since I was 9, since the show started, there's been so much bullying towards me," she says. "Like, every single day I see something negative about me. And it's just completely torn me apart. I feel like I've lost so many amazing traits because I've listened to stupid people, ignorant people who are bullies."
With over 40 million followers on Instagram and over 12 million on Twitter, Kylie is obviously no stranger to the online world or the haters that come with the territory. However, she confesses to also feeling animosity from people she thought were her friends.
"We were all young and I always felt like people weren't friends with me for the right reasons," she reveals. "They would be like, ‘You know everyone is just friends with you because you're famous,' or just weird stuff. I had a lot of friend issues throughout the years. That took a toll."
Luckily, she knows who her real friends are now. "I have two really great best friends that are the only people I hang out with," she says. "I keep a close circle."
As she continues to receive more and more attention, Kylie expresses it's important to her to use her influence in a positive way and set the right example for her young fans.
"I do feel pressure when I do a sexy photo shoots and stuff or if I want to post a picture," she admits. "I don't know. Because I want to be a good role model, but I also want to be me."
