The more famous Kylie Jenner gets, the more confident she is about flaunting her influence. She recently claimed that she "started wigs," although there's no way that's accurate, and her Lip Kit inspired one of her biggest fans to get a tattoo. Whether or not the rest of the world wants to admit it, Jenner is going to go ahead and say it herself: she called herself an "inspiration" to young girls in a recent magazine interview.

Jenner appears on the cover of Glamour UK's June issue. In her interview, she points to her career as a businesswoman to support her claim that she's a source of major "inspiration" in the world, according to an article on Us Weekly. She has a campaign with Puma in addition to clothing line collaborations for PacSun and Topshop with her sister Kendall Jenner. Don't forget about those world-famous Lip Kits, either. Despite being the youngest member of the notorious and insanely rich Kardashian clan, Jenner upholds that her success is self-made. 

Apparently, Jenner hasn't asked for a single dollar from her mom Kris Jenner in five years. "Ever since I started earning my own money, I’ve paid for everything: all my cars, houses, clothes, everything. I like to know exactly what’s going on and I’m actually quite careful with what I spend. We all are as a family," the 18-year-old said. 

Jenner noted that her independence sets a powerful example for young girls. "I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I’m an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own," she said. She also considers herself a feminist because she "doesn't depend on a man or anybody else."

The haters will say that all of her success can be traced back to her famous family, but Jenner wants you to know that is simply inaccurate at this point. The fact that her lip kits sold out in minutes pretty much speaks for itself.
