Kylie Jenner gave another interview, for better or worse (or worst). Right on time, her foot-in-mouth soundbite from the piece is that she "started wigs."

In Marie Claire's dubiously titled "fresh faces" issue, she says, "I started wigs, and now everyone is wearing wigs. Kim [Kardashian] just used my wig guy last night...I just do whatever I want to do, and people will follow." Marie Claire set up the quote with only the following: "On her ability to influence others and have fun with it."

It's unclear whether she's denying her wigs comment or is suggesting the quote was taken out of context — or whether she's even addressing this particular controversy (though that's unlikely). In any case, Kylie's not here to apologize.
