    Kylie Jenner Really Doesn't Give A Damn About "Growing Up Too Soon"

    So maybe everyone should leave her alone.

    Kylie Jenner has been in the public eye since Keeping Up With the Kardashians began in 2007, when she was 9.

    Her dramatic transformation is well-documented, but when she finally admitted to having had lip fillers after a year of speculation, many people were quick to suggest she's "growing up too fast".

    Yo Kylie Jenner is growing up way too fast. She going to look 40 by the time she 20

    Kylie Jenner is really a sad case to me. Growing up way, way too fast. Her parents need their ass whopped.

    @people @KrisJenner @KylieJenner She is an accident waiting to happen. Growing up too fast.

    But Kylie herself has now made it very clear that she really doesn't care about this opinion.

    Two weeks ago she shared this still from an episode of KUWTK, filmed when she was 11, where she assured her parents: "I promise I won't grow up too fast." She shared the image alongside the caption: "Dammit, Kylie! 😂"

    And then two days ago she shared this photo of herself standing next to an old poster for KUWTK, giving side-eye to her former self. She captioned it: "Looking over at little Kylie like.."

    However, that doesn't stop people having ~opinions~.

    There was the uproar when Kylie posted a Snapchat in which she was wearing a shirt saying “Eat Me Out” while dancing to the song “Rich $ex” by Future.

    Kylie jenner is a wearing a shirt in her snapchat that says "eat me out" NO KYLIE YOUR JUST A LITTLE GIRL

    Looking at Kylie Jenner's snap chat and she had on a mesh shirt with the in-n-out logo but it says eat-me-out. Child. You are 17. Chill.

    Kylie Jenner had a shirt that said "Eat Me Out" in her Snapchat story last 17, my parents would be like wtf take that off 😕

    Then people lost their minds over this Snapchat where Kylie caressed her own boobs.

    As well as this one.

    And people well and truly lost their shit when Kylie posted this Snapchat showing her putting her hand down sister Kendall's jeans.


    Even her mother, Kris Jenner, seemed surprised when Kylie spoke about being on the Pill.

    But amid all this is the fact that Kylie isn't an average 17-year-old. She has modelled for Balmain, has a line of hair extensions, and has already purchased a $2.7 million home.

    This fact isn't lost on Kylie's half-sister, Khloé Kardashian, who earlier this week defended her. Speaking to Complex, Khloé said:

    "Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You're not gonna say, 'Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?' and have her say, 'Having a slumber party at my girlfriend's,' or 'Going to prom.' That's not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she's going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting."

    Kylie has also been famous for as long as she can remember, and she's spoken publicly about how hard she's found growing up in the public eye.

    Speaking to Girlfriend magazine earlier this year, she said:

    "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. I hate to complain, but there's no room for mistakes. 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."

    So maybe everyone should leave Kylie to turn 18 in a couple of weeks, when she'll be free to make her decisions – including reportedly marrying her boyfriend Tyga – as an adult. Because she definitely doesn't care what anyone thinks.
