Watch: Kylie Jenner Sets the Record Straight on Her Alleged "Insecurity"

Kylie Jenner's lips are spilling some serious truth.

The Kardashians star recently got candid on the rumors that she got lip injections because she wasn't happy with her appearance—but that couldn't be farther from the truth.

"I think a big misconception about me is that I've had so much surgery on my face and that I was some insecure person, and I really wasn't!" Kylie said during an interview with Homme Girls published April 18. "Yeah, I love full lips and wanted full lips, but growing up I was always the most confident person in the room. I was the girl performing for everyone."

As the 25-year-old put it, "I had my one lip insecurity thing, so I got lip filler, and it was the best thing I've ever done. I don't regret it. But I always thought I was cute."

And when it comes to passing down the confidence gene to five-year-old daughter Stormi Webster, Kylie wants her oldest to remember this: "That she's perfect the way that she is. Be confident, always be confident in yourself."

Celebs Who've Admitted to Getting Plastic Surgery or Cosmetic Procedures

Kylie's comments comes four years after she previously addressed plastic surgery rumors.

"People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false," she told PAPER magazine in 2019. "I'm terrified. I would never."

And although the Kylie Cosmetics founder denies getting cosmetic surgery on her face—a rumor that has been swirling since her teenage years—she has been open about the less invasive procedure she's had done.

"It's fillers," Kylie confessed. "I'm not denying that."

Kylie first spoke about lip injections on a 2015 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, that she'd previously shied away from addressing what she had done to her lips because due to the trolls and negative comments.

"I have temporary lip fillers, it's just an insecurity of mine," she shared at the time. "And it's what I wanted to do. Everyone always picks us apart. I want to admit to the lips, but people are so quick to judge me on everything, so I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn't lie."
