Kylie Jenner Opens Up About Fame, Being ‘Judged by the World’

Being the youngest Kardashian sister might sound glamorous and exciting, but Kylie Jenner says it has its difficulties too.

The 17 year-old reality star opened up to Girlfriend magazine about what it’s like to be in the spotlight at such a young age.

“I don’t remember a time when there weren’t cameras around, because we started this when I was nine, so I feel like I was born into it almost,” she said of her family’s reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians

“Sometimes we don’t realize how big we’ve gotten until we go out for lunch and everyone is asking for pictures or we get swarmed by the paparazzi and then I’m like, ‘Whoa! I didn’t know this many people liked me,'” she added.

Unfortunately, though, not everyone is a fan.

“I hate to complain but there’s no room for mistakes, kind of,” she admitted. “And if you make a mistake, everyone’s hearing about it, it’s on every blog. It sucks being judged by the world instead of just your close friends or family.”

As a result, Kylie says she avoids reading articles about herself and her family because it’s “spun out of proportion.” She also points out that she’s able to deal with criticism because she has a good support system and a big family.

Do you feel bad for the way Kylie has grown up in the spotlight?
