Although it might seem unnecessary to some, the pressure from the outside world can be heavy on anyone--especially for those in the public eye. And some really do it just to feel better about themselves, and who can blame them?

After enduring months of speculation, Kylie finally came clean about using lip fillers. Apparently her lip size was one of her big insecurities. She said in an interview:

"This guy I kissed was like, ‘Your lips are really small but you’re a really good kisser. I didn’t think you were gonna be good at kissing.’ It was rude. From then on, I just felt like I saw guys staring at my lips. I felt like no one wanted to kiss me."

Part of the reason why she took forever to admit it was because of her age. “I wasn’t even 17 yet. What if I came out and said, ‘Oh yea, I got my lips done?’ What are all those moms going to think about me? These kids, my fans, they’re going to think I’m crazy. I didn’t want to be a bad influence.”
