Kylie joins Ellie Goulding, Hailey Baldwin, Zendaya and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as the one of the five cover girls, and get this: Jenner told the American glossy that she, single-handedly, is responsible for the popularity of wigs.

"I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs," Kylie told Marie Claire.

In the words of famed Snapchat star DJ Khaled, "don't play yourself."

And the Twitterverse agrees, with many questioning Jenner's bold statement.



Sure, the 18-year-old is incredibly influential in the beauty world (so influential, in fact, that her ever-so-popular lip kit is constantly sold out), and yes, according to Cosmo, Kylie did indeed wear 52 wigs in 2015 alone. But, did she not realize that people have been wearing wigs since, like, forever? Romy and Michelle may have invented Post-Its, but you did not invent wigs, Kylie.

George Washington and Marie Antoinette were wig connoisseurs in their time, but you didn't hear them saying THEY and only THEY "started wigs," now do you Kylizzle?



The beauty mogul then added that she has even influenced her sister Kim Kardashian and her wig game.

"Kim [Kardashian] just used my wig guy last night," Kylie noted in the interview. "I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow."

Interesting. Very interesting.

But it looks like Kylie may have felt the wrath of the Internet as she followed up with this cryptic tweet:


Either way, let it be known that while she may have influenced more people to wear wigs, Kylie Jenner definitely didn't "start" them.
