Kylie Jenner Claims She “Started Wigs,” Is Not Correct

"I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow."

What a time to be alive.

Kylie Jenner—along with Zendaya, Ellie Goulding, Hailey Baldwin and Gugu Mbatha-Raw—is one of Marie Claire’s 2016 Fresh Faces, their issue that showcases “some of the most up-and-coming talents today.” Why Ellie Goulding, who up-and-came about six years ago and is still up there, is being lumped into this group of gals is confusing, but first things first: Kylie, wig purveyor.

In addition to posing for one of Marie Claire’s covers, Jenner spoke to the mag, revealing extremely compelling things like the fact that she hates it when the valet changes the settings in her car and always regrets posting sexy photos (“Like, Oh my God, everyone is seeing my body.”). The 18-year-old also touched on her ability to influence, which, judging from her rabid fanbase, her always-sold-out lip kollection, and her song mentions (?), is next-level. Oh, and did we mention that she started wigs?

“I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs,” Jenner told the mag. “Kim [Kardashian] just used my wig guy last night…I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow.”

Jenner has revolutionized matte lipsticks and lip glosses. Hers are the hottest on the market right now. But she did not “start” wigs, which have been around for literal centuries. Perhaps by “start” she meant “made wigs more popular among white people.” And perhaps by “everyone” she meant “close friends and family.”

That last statement about doing whatever she wants and knowing that people will follow is haunting, by the way. She’s 100% right about that. People will follow, and that’s why you should always give credit where credit is due.

Let Kanye’s words be the motto: No one (wo)man should have all that power.
